Teresa Giudice tops the list of salary figures at $600,000 per season on “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” That show garners the most viewers with an audience of three million.
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer make $500,000 per season “Real Housewives of New York.”
For “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” NeNe Leakes makes the most on that show, unsurprisingly. She rakes in $350,000 per season. Her net worth is reportedly $4.5 million due to her popularity. She’s also in NBC’s “The New Normal.” She’s also been on FOX’s “Glee.”
Vicki Gunvalson of “Real Housewives of Orange County” makes $450,000 a season. Gunvalson has been on the show for all eight seasons.
The more drama on these shows, the more money the stars can bring in. In every season of the Bravo reality shows, the drama gets more intense. Teresa Giudice easily surpasses everyone else in the drama department. RHoNJ typically has extreme feuding with Teresa being the common denominator. In season five, new cast members will be brought to the show so she has someone on her side. Last season she and her brother, Joe Gorga, got to a point they couldn’t talk anymore. Almost everyone else on the show cut ties with her — finding her unreasonable and difficult.
