Ranked: Who is officially the richest Real Housewife of them all?
Warning: They’re RICH rich
Although the drama on Real Housewives is unbeatable (rich, middle-aged women throwing lawsuits at each other), it’s watching luxury lifestyles that really makes good TV. As I sit eating a Pot Noodle in my cold uni house, what better way to get a temporary fix than binge watch the richest of the rich eating caviar in their Bentleys and private jets? But have you ever wondered who the richest housewife might be? The one with the most Rolexes, the one with the most diamonds, the housewife of all housewives.
Below is a list of Real Housewives net worths that add up to the equivalent of about 50 Rolex watches. If you want to be reminded of how poor you are and just how filthy rich the Top 10 richest housewives are, then keep reading.
10. Kandi Burruss – $30 million
So we begin with Kandi Burruss, whose net worth is a modest $30 million. The fact this is the lowest Real Housewives net worth on the list says a lot. Married to Todd Tucker (a former producer on The Real Housewives of Atlanta), Kandi has been on the show since its second season so she clearly lives and breathes Real Housewives. Kandi also used to be a member of the R&B group, Xscape, who have sold more than 30 million records worldwide. 30 million seems to be Kandi’s lucky number.
9. Tinsley Mortimer – $35 million
Born into a wealthy family, with her dad being a well-off real-estate investor and her mum an interior designer, alongside her own line of handbags, Tinsley has even formed her own fashion line as well. She’s just all-round rich tbh. Her dogs even look rich too.
8. Heather Dubrow – $40 million
Heather’s $40 million fortune was built from her career in acting, and she had popular roles in series such as Hawaii-Five-O and That’s Life. She was a member of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and is married to Terry Dubrow who is a plastic surgeon and star of the hit TV series, Botched. There’s something about plastic surgeons marrying Real Housewives…
7. Jill Zarin – $40 million
Jill Zarin married into her fortune, when she wed Bobby Zarin (owner of Zarin Fabric Warehouse), who had a net worth of $35 million. She certainly seems to be living her best life in this pic, I can practically see the $40 million in her designer sunglasses. Jill’s just casually showing off her Louis Vuitton bag that is probs worth more than me x
6. Yolanda Hadid – $45 million
Oh Yolanda, one of the purest housewives who has an obsession for lemons and her kids Gigi, Bella and Anwar (those genes tho). Noticed by a major fashion designer aged only 16, it would seem modelling simply runs in the family. Yolanda’s divorce to Mohamed Hadid resulted in her receiving a settlement including a $6 million house in Malibu, several cars, a lump sum fee of $3.6 million in cash, and $30,000 in monthly child support. A salary of $100,000 per season of RHOBH was probably a nice bit on the side too.
5. Dorit Kemsley – $50 million
Whether it’s starting drama on RHOBH simply over her champagne being served in a wine glass, to celebrating her husband Paul ‘PK’ Kemsley’s 50th birthday on a huge yacht, Dorit Kemsley relishes in luxury. She now owns her own brand of swimwear and is besties with Boy George. No big deal.
4. Camille Grammer/Meyer – $50 million
Camille started her career as a dancer on Club MTV in the 1980s. She married actor Kelsey Grammer in 1997, but filed for divorce in 2010. The episode of RHOBH on January 13 2011 (where Camille revealed that Kelsey wanted to leave their marriage) was the number one broadcast among adults 18-49. When their divorce was finalised, Camille reportedly received a settlement of $30-$50 million. Look at her happily out on her skis, probs thinking about the $50 million she has under her belt. Ah, what a life.
3. Kyle Richards – $50 million
Another original cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards was a child actress who starred in films like Halloween, Little House On The Prairie and The Watcher In The Woods. She has been married to her husband Mauricio Umansky for 24 years (goals), a real estate developer who sells over $150 million worth of property on average each year (no biggie). The couple host lavish parties each year for each of their four daughters’ birthdays and also attend Kris Jenner’s famous Christmas Eve party. I’m not jel at all. Oh, and Kyle’s niece is Paris Hilton.
2. Carole Adziwill – $50 million
Former cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, and don’t forget to mention literal former PRINCESS, Carole actually grew up in a working class Italian family in New York. How times change. Can someone find me a prince ASAP pls.
1. Lisa Vanderpump – $75 MILLION (yes, you read that right)
Ahh, the queen of housewife royalty (and being rich so it seems). Originally from London, Lisa Vanderpump now lives lavishly in LA, and is a former star and original cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
From her restaurant ‘PUMP’ to her dog rescue centre aptly named ‘Vanderpump Dogs’, Lisa Vanderpump’s plethora of business ventures make her and her many pampered pooches THE richest housewife of them all. Slightly hard-hitting that her dogs are probably worth more than us commoners, isn’t it. Ever felt intimidated by a dog? Just look at the pic above x
