Who knew that just showing your life to the world would come with a lot of real money! These "housewives'" designer wallets are definitely getting fatter as they let America into their outrageous, dramatic lives.
On Bravo's The Real Housewives of Orange County, the original set of housewives showed us that being a housewife no longer means that the woman is expected to cook and clean. The extra fabulous ladies captivated us with their lavish parties, their extreme shopping habits, and their ridiculous amount of drama.
Rounding out as the top leader of the OC ladies is Vicki Gunalson, who reportedly makes $450,000 a season. Following in Vicki's foot steps, Tamra Barney commands a cool $350,000 for her appearance on the hit show. The beautiful Gretchen Rossi follows with $250,000, then the extra fabulous Alexis Bellino with $200,000, and the newcomer Heather Dubrow rounds up the list with a weak $30,000 a season.
In the newest establishment of the series, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the women show some extremely independent "housewives," making their fortunes on their own.
Lisa Vanderpump tops the Beverly Hills ladies off with her $250,000 a season earnings, followed closely by both Adrienne Maloof and Kyle Richards with a pretty $200,000 a season. Taylor Armstrong is next with $175,000 and Brandi Glanville with $125,000. Kim Richards and newcomer Yolanda Hadid may be at the bottom but they definitely cannot be upset with the $100,000 they make a season.
But with all this said, the top housewife award definitely goes to The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes, who has made her way to stardom with her outrageous personality! The Atlanta housewife reportedly makes $750,000 per season and could even receive a million when the show orders new episodes!
These "housewives" are definitely bringing home the bacon without a problem.
