10 Richest Real Housewives: How Much Are They Worth?
The women on Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise series might not all get along, but they do have one thing in common — they are all really, really rich. With the exception of a few women here and there, it seems one of the requirements to be on the show is to have a lot of money in the bank, and we mean a lot! Whether it is new money, old money or in a few cases no money, these women live lavish lifestyles making for some envious entertainment. However, the women on this specific list are the wealthiest of the bunch with more money than some of Hollywood’s A-list celebrities! Here are the richest real housewives and how much they are worth:
10. Lizzie Rovsek
Estimated Net Worth: $25 million. Lizzie Rovsek was on The Real Housewives of Orange County for one season (season 9), and then appeared as a guest for season 10. Don’t be fooled by Lizzie’s pageant looks, she’s quite smart and made a successful career for herself (unlike some other housewives). Before being cast as a reality star, she was a model. Today she works as a fashion designer for her own business, Sun Kitten Swimwear by Lizzie. Okay, so we might be able to judge her pageant looks because Lizzie is a former Miss Kentucky! She also enjoyed a fleeting career as an actress when she starred in two films that were direct-to-DVD, The Crying Museum and Cut Off. Before getting married to real estate investor and founder of Angel Team Mortgage, Christian Rovsek, she was a junior designer at Tina Anderson Interior Design. Her husband might be the breadwinner of the family, but Lizzie does just fine raking in her own money from her signature swimwear line and paychecks from Bravo. Her estimated net worth is at an impressive $25 million.
9. Bethenny Frankel
Estimated Net Worth: $25 million. Bethenny Frankel is the ultimate self made millionaire. We watched her go from struggling to survive in the first couple seasons of The Real Housewives of New York, to raking in the millions with her Skinny Girl empire. It was quite the transformation — and was all documented right before our eyes. She’s done numerous stints on television, starting out as a chef who was asked to go on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart and made it to the final rounds. She then moved onto Real Housewives which lead to two Bravo’s spin offs, Bethenny Getting Married? and Bethenny Ever After. Her current ‘celebrity status’ makes her a coveted member of the Real Housewives cast, earning her approximately $40 thousand per episode! The majority of her income comes from her Skinny Girl cocktail company, but she also had a brief stint hosting a talk show called Bethenny, and has authored four self-help books. Her hard work has paid off because Bethenny Frankel now has an estimated net worth of $25 million.
