Ranking The Real Housewives by their eye-wateringly huge net worths

Lisa Vanderpump made $500,000 per season!

I know when you’re watching Real Housewives all you want to know is how rich they are. But who exactly is the richest of them all? Who can buy a 10 million dollar property and it would make a dent in their net worth, and who would it be pocket change to? Here’s the definitive ranking of The Real Housewives based off of their insanely huge net worths

5. Carole Radziwill – $50 million

The Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radziwill is worth a whopping $50 million (£43 million) and has been a workaholic all her life, working in television for ABC news. Carole went on to write a memoir, What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, and Love, which made the New York Times Best Seller list. She also writes monthly columns for Glamour magazine, amongst many other publications.

She left the Bravo show after season 10 to go back to working as a journalist and to enjoy her massive $50 million net worth!

4. Lea Black – $85 million

She can deal with a lot, but she can’t deal with stupid. This OG Real Housewives of Miami star, who reigned supreme from 2011 to 2013, has been quietly building her fortune ever since she left the show and now has a net worth of $85 million (£69 million).

Thanks to her criminal defence attorney husband Roy Black and her lucrative skincare line Lea Black Beauty, as well as her mystery novel Red Carpets & White Lies, Lea currently sports a net worth of $85 million. Although she didn’t return for the 2021 Peacock reboot of the show, in true Lea Black fashion, she did pop in to give Lisa Hochstein some tough love about her divorce from Lenny Hochstein. What an icon.

3. Lisa Vanderpump – $90 million

Lisa Vanderpump basically is the queen of The Real Housewives at this point and has a hefty net worth of $90 million (£73 million) to show for it. She makes around $500,000 per season starring on Housewives and also owns over 30 bars and restaurants with her husband Ken Todd.

Lisa has also gone on to develop a skincare line, and a line of pet accessories, and is the editor for Beverly Hills Lifestyle MagazineAs if that weren’t enough, Lisa is also embarking on her very own reality series, Overserved and Vanderpump Dogs.

2. Kyle Richards – $100 million

Kyle Richards kick-started her acting career at just six years old when she starred in big roles like the iconic horror movie Halloween and the charming TV series Little House on the Prairie. The main source of Richards’ income likely comes from her time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which she has been on since 2010, and has resulted in her gaining a net worth of $100 million (£82 million).

She also has her boutique fashion lines: Kyle by Alene Too, which closed its doors in 2018, and Kyle x Shahida, which is still going strong.

1. Diana Jenkins – $300 million

Diana Jenkins is the reigning queen of Real Housewives net worths, having a staggering $300 million (£246 million) to her name. This housewife joined the single-season club alongside Carlton and Joyce Giraud when she departed the show following season 12.

Born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jenkins fled the country in the mid-’90s only to relocate to London where she studied at City University of London, and received a Computer Science and Economics degree. The businesswoman acquired the swimwear line Melissa Odabash and in 2009 launched Neuro Brands, a wellness beverage line. Even with her successful businesses, the bulk of Jenkins’ net worth comes from her divorce from Roger “Big Dog” Jenkins, who Wikipedia reports was once the “highest paid banker in the City of London.”
