The Real Housewives of New York City has been a huge hit for Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise. The show is one of it’s most successful series as it showcases the lives of Manhattan’s most fierce business women in their daily lives as moms, socialites and entrepreneurs who have now become reality stars. One of the biggest pulls for this entire series of Real Housewives is the inside look viewers get into the lavish lives of these wealthy New Yorkers. The Real Housewives of New York City is gearing up for it’s eighth season, and over the past few years we’ve seen a lot of women come and go! Here’s a look at the latest cast of Real Housewives of New York City are worth:
8. Kristen Taekman
Estimated Net Worth: $20 million. Kristen Taekman has accumulated most of her wealth through her marriage to Josh Taekman who made millions after founding her energy drink company, eBoost. Before launching his own company, Josh worked as the Vice President of marketing at Diddy’s Bad Boy records. Kristen was at one point a successful model, but she now focuses on being a mom and her two businesses. She has a successful greeting card company called 2nd Street Press, and a fashion blog called Last Night’s Look, as well as a line of nail polish called Pop Of Color. Kristen just recently announced that she will not be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City after her two season run. The news comes at the heels of a public scandal which occurred this past summer when her husband was exposed for having an Ashley Madison account. Kristen is taking time to focus on her family, but in the mean time her business ventures and husband’s success has her sitting comfortably with an estimated net worth of $20 million.
7. Carole Radziwill
Estimated Net Worth: $50 million. Carole Radziwill is probably one of the most interesting Real Housewives, because she’s unlike anyone else on the show. Carole is a successful journalist who used to work for ABC News — at one point she worked overseas reporting on the Gulf War and in 2003 as a correspondent in Afghanistan. She met her husband, Prince Anthony Radziwill of a Polish Royal family (who had family connections to the Kennedys) while working as a journalist, but their marriage was short lived when he was later diagnosed with cancer. After Anthony died, Carole left her career as a journalist and found even more success as a writer. She wrote a memoir called What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love which ended up on the New York Times Best Seller List, and began writing a monthly column for Glamour magazine interviewing celebrities. She went on to author two more novels, The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating, and sold them in a lucrative high six-figure deal to Holt Publishing. The novel series are even in the process of being developed into a TV series! All of this success has given Carole an estimated net worth of $50 million! She’s the second richest housewife in the entire Real Housewives franchise.
