12 Highest Paid Real Housewives
Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise has been around for a long time and it has come a long way in that time. When it first started in 2006 it was a docu-series that was all about showcasing average, working women who live a luxurious lifestyle, but now it’s transformed into a series that is all about seeking out and casting the most glamorous women around (bonus points if they have a celebrity connection). Just like any job, these ladies get paid off performance and some of them are making some serious dough for their drama! Here’s a look at the 12 highest paid women in the Real Housewives franchise!
12. Vicki Gunvalson – $750,000
Vicki Gunvalson is commonly referred to as the O.G. of The O.C. because she is the only Housewife to have been around for every single season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and because it was this show that started it all. Gunvalson has made a strong career out of her reality TV stint, in addition to already earning millions at her COTO Insurance company. Because she’s such a dedicated cast member who is never afraid to bring the drama each season, she’s among the higher earning cast members with a reported $750,000 per season.
11. Melissa Gorga – $750,000
Veteran Housewife Teresa Guidice’s sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga has been with The Real Housewives of New Jersey for quite some time now. She joined the show back in season 3 and has stuck it out through thick and thin as she battled with her co-star and sister-in-law over the past five seasons. These two seem to be on really good terms now, and seemingly as a reward she got herself a pay bump! Now that Gorga has solidified herself as a regular cast member she earns what many of the other ladies earn which is around $750,000 per season.
