The ladies from Orange County are among the richest housewives in the entire franchise. It turns out, Orange County truly is a place of luxury and these women are living the lifestyle. Many of the women selected to appear on the show are successful business women while others have made a fortune from their relationships. Regardless, these ladies collect a big check for appearing on this reality series and many of the women who currently star on the show are worth over a million bucks! With an ever changing cast, this list is constantly revolving, but we’re focusing on the top earners of the main and current cast of RHOC: 

7. Kelly Dodd

Estimated Net Worth: $10 million. Kelly Dodd is the newest housewife to join The Real Housewives of Orange County. It’s only a few weeks into the series and she’s already made a huge splash and definitely impressed the ladies with her modern and beautiful four-story oceanfront home in Corona Del Mar. She describes herself as a stay-at-home mom, but she does have the position of being the COO of Kiss Me Mirrors, a company based out of Newport Beach, California. Kelly has definitely made her own money, but it doesn’t hurt that she’s married to Michael Dodd, the former president of LeapFrog Enterprises Inc. He’s since retired from that role and these two are now living off all the royalties! Today she’s worth an estimated $10 million!


6. Tamra Judge

Estimated net worth: $800,000. Tamra has made her fortune as a co-owner of CUT Fitness, which she owns with her husband, Eddie Judge. She is a long-time real estate agent for Ladera Realtor, and for her television appearances on shows like Who Wants to be a Millionaire and The Real Housewives Confess: A Watch What Happens Special. Judge earns herself a cool $350,000 per season of the Real Housewives of Orange County — not too shabby!

4. Vicki Gunvalson

Estimated net worth: $7 million. Vicki has been quoted as saying, “I want the power and the money, and I want them both.” And this independent insurance agent, author, and original cast member of the Real Housewives of Orange County has done just that! She rakes in $500,000 per season of the hit reality show and has expanded her business, Coto Insurance and Financial Services, into Bellevue, Washington, and Atlanta. All of her success has spawned two books including More than a Housewife and Internet Life Insurance Selling Made Easy. She fulfills the type-A personality to a tee and is known for her “tell it like it is” approach.


3. Shannon Beador

Estimated net worth: $20 million. This holistic queen has done something right to earn her one of the top spots on our list. Shannon grew up in a wealthy family in Orange County, but made her claim to fame after she joined the cast of Real Housewives of Orange County for its ninth season. Fans were quickly introduced to her family and their marital problems from the get-go. The mother of three is a full-time stay at home mom who has been desperately holding her marriage to David Beador together. His infidelity was made public on the show after he cheated on Shannon in a sordid 8-month affair with another married woman. David Beador is the successful owner of a construction company that has earned the family their millions.
