You may know Lisa from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or Vanderpump Rules, but did you know she has been on-screen since she was a child? Lisa began her career in showbiz in 1973’s A Touch of Class. She also appears in a cult classic horror movie called Killer’s Moon.

Stassi’s net worth is listed at $2 million according to Celebritynetworth.com. However, she was fired from the show in 2020 for past racist behavior. She reportedly bagged around $25,000 for each episode they filmed of the show. Had she made it a few more seasons, maybe she’d be worth more than just two million.
Along with Stassi, Kristen Doute was also part of the original cast members of Lisa Vanderpump’s spin off show Vanderpump Rules. She also was fired from the show along with Stassi for filing a false police report against co-star Faith Stowers. Faith accused the two of racism, which prompted their termination from the show.

Marlo is one of the newest members of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but that doesn’t make her a newbie. Her starting salary is an impressive $270,000 check per season of the show, which is nothing to laugh at. It’s not as much as Atlanta veteran Nene Leakes’s outrageous salary, but it's still good.
Marlo was supposed to join the cast of Atlanta in the fourth season of the show but was cut from the lineup only to appear as a friend of the housewives. Most people know her for her relationship with Nene and their mutual ex-boyfriend, Charles Grant. She has a net worth of around $600,000.

Shannon divorced her husband in 2017 after 17 years of marriage. The divorce was finalized in 2018 and came with a sweet alimony check of $22,500 a month in Shannon’s favor.

Besides being a fabulous cast member of The Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan was a former model, film producer, entrepreneur, and socialite. She’s a New York native, born in Albany, and she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her ex-husband is also a descendant of the founder of J.P Morgan & Co.
Sonja joined the cast of the RHONY for season 3 of the show in 2010. As of now, she’s making around $465,000 per season of the show and something like $20,000 per scene that she’s in—similar to LuAnn de Lesseps. Sonja apparently has expensive taste, but she’s got the bills to back it up, with a net worth of $8 million.
LuAnn de Lesseps
LuAnn has nearly done it all. She’s been a nurse, model, author and ultimately one of the Real Housewives of New York! LuAnn and several other cast members of RHONY were hoping for a hefty pay raise after Betheny Frankel returned to the show, and she definitely got what she wished for.
LuAnn is reported to have negotiated a contract in which she receives $20,000 for each scene she's featured in on the show. This means that all it takes is one scene per show to get her to a $460,000 salary for a season. That’s pretty decent if you ask us! At the end of the day, she probably doesn’t even need it because her net worth is a stunning $25 million.
Erika Jayne Girardi
Pop princess Erika Jayne is worth a stunning $5 million. Her successful dance music career started in 2007, when she released her first track called “Roller Coaster”. Her single hit number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. There’s no double that Erika is extremely rich, just look at her! She looks like a million bucks. That’s because she literally spends over $40,000 a month on clothes.
She can afford it though, because she earns approximately $500,000 per season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Plus, her lawyer husband has allegedly done a lot of shady stuff. Erika insists she knew nothing about his shady business dealings, but the timing of her filing for divorce is suspish—enough so that a documentary about the scandal just dropped on Hulu; it's called The Housewife & The Hustler. It was so convincing, in fact, that Erika's lawyer dropped her as a client. Wonder what her networth will look like after this...
Tom Sandoval is another one of the OG cast members of Lisa’s show, Vanderpump Rules. Tom joined the show in season one and only earned a combined $38,000 for season one and two. He’s one of the bartenders on the show, and for several seasons he was involved in an entangled love affair with another cast member.
For bringing the drama, Tom got a nice pay raise, though. In 2020 his earnings per episode were reported at $25,000. That pay raise paid off because Tom Sandavol is now worth a nice $4 million! He’s come a long way from the lover boy bartender he used to be. You go, Tom!
Vicki Gunvalson is one of the OG cast members of The Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s made her millions as an independent insurance agent, author, and reality TV star. Vicki was a primary cast member of the show for 13 seasons, and she put her time on the show to good use building a stellar net worth of $7 Million.
Since Vicki is not only an original housewife on the show, but also an original housewife for the entire franchise, she's compensated pretty nicely for her time. She’s one of the highest-paid housewives in all of Orange County. She brings home a stellar $750,000 per season of the show.
There’s no question that Teresa Giudice makes some dang good television. As an original cast member of RHONJ (The Real Housewives of New Jersey), Teresa’s larger-than-life personality has put her in the Housewives Hall of Fame. She brings the drama no matter what—even if she ends up in jail.
Teresa has shown the world her fair share of family drama and legal problems, which is all the more reason we like to see her on the show. It’s reported that she makes around $1 million per season of the show, but given her track record of reporting financials, we’ll believe it when we see it.
Before Porsha joined the Bravo network on the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she was a model and actress! She was also known as a former NFL wife. She was married to NFL Player Kordell Stewart. She joined the housewives midway through season five in 2012 and became famous.
Porsha has been earning her coin while entertaining us all at home. Porsha spent a lot of time on the show fighting with Kenya Moore, a cast mate. While Kenya was on the show, Porsha was earning $800,000 per season, but now she’s earning $1.25 million since Kenya and Sheree were fired.
Outside of her time as a fabulous reality TV star, Tamra co-owns a successful fitness brand called C.U.T. Fitness along with her hubby, Eddie Judge. She was also a real estate agent for Ladera Realtor. But she’s best-known for being one of the cast members of The Real Housewives of Orange County since 2006.
Tamra has a stunning net worth of $2 million from her substantial time on the show and from her fitness company. After all these years on the show, Tamra is said to earn around $600,000 per season. It seems like being a Real Housewife has its perks.
Melissa Gorga has been a cast member of The Real Housewives of New Jersey since season 3, along with her husband, Joe Gorga. Melissa also happens to be co-star Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law, proving that in New Jersey, it’s all about family.

Before joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Denise was first and foremost an actress! She started her career as a model but ended up finding her stride on film through roles on popular movies like Starship Troopers. No wonder she ended up on TV—she’s got tons of experience stealing the spotlight.
Her success doesn’t stop there, though. Her $12 million was built through smart investments in property as well as her work on TV. Denise Richards's salary for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a shocking $4 million dollars, but wait up…that’s over a four-year time frame, which only makes it a measly million per season. And she only lasted two seasons on RHOBH before quitting, so wonder how that deal panned out..!
