Everyone knows that the stars on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have a ton of money to throw around. But just how much? And who rules them all?
According to Bustle, Lisa Vanderpump is the winner. Her net worth is a mind boggling $65 million. With a lavish house, infinity pool, and plenty of animals including dogs, miniature horses, and swans, it’s clear that Vanderpump doesn’t need to keep a budget. But how do the rest of the current RHOBH stack up to Lisa Vanderpump? What about all the former ladies, and the other Real Housewives?
First, staying in the current cast of RHOBH, Yolanda Foster is runner up to Vanderpump with a reported net worth of $45 million. Kyle Richards, an actress and store owner, follows with an estimated $30 million. Kyle also released a book titled, Life Is Not A Reality Show: Keeping It Real with the Housewife Who Does It All. A bigger gap follows the rest with Lisa Rinna at $8 million, Erika Girardi at $5 million, Eileen Davidson claiming $3 million and Kathryn Edwards worth $2 million.
What about past Beverly Hills stars? Business woman and entrepreneur Adrienne Maloof comes in at an estimated $50 million, which beats out current stars Kylie Richards and Lisa Vanderpump for the number two spot. Tying Maloof at $50 million is former actress, model, and dancer Camille Grammer.
And while Vanderpump rules the money game with the current cast, there is one former housewife who is worth a whopping $150 million: Carlton Gebbia. That puts the top five list of past and present RHOBH at #5 Yolanda Foster, tied for #4 and #3 are Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof, #2 Lisa Vanderpump, and #1 Carlton Gebbia.
Carlton Gebbia? Not everyone remembers her role in RHOBH but that doesn’t mean she isn’t outrageously rich. According to Bustle she was only on the show for one season and her only storyline was the sex-themed room she created for her hubby. Which proves that she doesn’t have any money problems. The former actress started working in the fashion industry in the early 2000s but essentially gained a lot of her fortune through her marriage to David Gebbia, an owner of a very successful stock brokerage firm.
Of course The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills isn’t the only housewives show on Bravo. But do the top earners stack up to the fortune and fame that comes to those in Beverly Hills?
All Things Real Housewives list all the current housewives net worth and salaries from their respective show. And some give the ladies in Beverly Hills a run for their money.
RHOA‘s top net worth belongs to Kandi Burruss at $35 million. Her salary from the show is $450,00 annually. That’s enough to beat out Beverly Hills stars Eileen Davidson, Lisa Rinna, Joyce Giraud, Brandi Glanville, and Kyle Richards.
RHOC also edges out many of Beverly Hills top earners with star Heather Dubrow earning a net worth of $30 million, though her reality TV salary remains unknown so she could be worth way more.
As for the RHOM, Lea Black ties Lisa Vanderpump with an astonishing net worth of $65 million! However, heading up the east coast the money tree’s thin out with the RHONJ‘s biggest earner, Teresa Giudice, toping out at $11 million. (But is that all really her money? There was that whole prison sentence for fraud.)
Last but not least is the RHONY, which might possibly be the biggest rival to the RHOBH when it comes to overall earnings. Five of the Real Housewives of New York are worth at least $20 million with the top earner Carole Radziwill, having an estimated $50 million. What about Bethenny Frankel? Bethenny sold her Skinnygirl brand for a reported $120 million, but there were other investors and taxes that broke that way down. In recent documents from her divorce, Bethenny’s net worth is listed at $22 million.
Of course, we can’t forget about the show’s producer, Andy Cohen, who has a net worth of $15 million.
