Has the net worth of Kim Richards taken a major hit? Apparently so. Although Richards was once a successful child star and member of the famous Hilton family, her net worth isn’t what it once was, despite her role on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
According to a report by Bustle on June 7, Richards’ net worth isn’t nearly as much as her Bravo co-stars.
“BornRich.com claims her net worth is $2 million, while CelebrityNetWorth.com shaves that amount down to a measly $500,000.”
In addition to her not stacking up to the likes of Lisa Vanderpump, Camille Grammer, and Adrienne Maloof, who have all starred on the series at one point or another, Richards’ net worth is also substantially less than her younger sister, Kyle Richards. Bustle claims Kyle’s net worth is a whopping $30 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth, and she makes a reported $270,000 per episode of the show, while Richards rakes in just $100,000.
Although it is normal for stars of the Bravo series to make different amounts, the amounts normally differ based on how long they’ve been on the show and whether or not they appear full-time. In the case of the Richards sisters, however, they’ve both been starring in full-time roles since Season 1, so the differing pay is pretty odd and somewhat telling when it comes to who fans prefer.
As for the net worth of her co-stars, Lisa Vanderpump is listed at $65 million, Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof both have a net worth of $50 million, and Yolanda Foster is worth $45 million. The other women, who joined the show in the years since its debut, have net worths closer to that of Richards. Brandi Glanville is worth just $1 million while Lisa Rinna is worth $8 million, and Eileen Davidson’s net worth is listed at $3 million.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Richards’ dwindling net worth has allegedly led her to move out of her San Fernando Valley home. On June 8, TMZ reported Richards had packed her belongings before heading to rehab days ago, and she was planning to move into a cheaper condo in West L.A. after her release.
Richards has been reportedly fired from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after Season 5 in the wake of her latest sobriety issues. Although the reality star is currently in rehab, producers of the show are reportedly fed up with the situation and not willing to add to her net worth with a paycheck for Season 6.
