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.
