Now that The Real Housewives of Orange County is back, it’s time to gaze not only behind the gates, but into their finances.
Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador, Meghan King Edmonds — may not have as many digits in their bank accounts as The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies but according to a report by Wetpaint, they certainly aren’t hurting.
1. Heather Dubrow – $30 Million
“If at first you don’t succeed, try it my way.”
This actress didn’t make her millions by acting, let’s face it. But with her plastic surgeon husband, Terry Dubrow, who also stars in another hit reality show, plus a thriving practice and a skin care line, the couple have top bragging rights. Soon the family will move into the boutique hotel that has taken 2 ½ years to call home, but unfortunately it wasn’t ready in time for Season 11 of RHOC. Maybe Andy will film the reunion show there!
2. Shannon Beador – $20 Million
“Karma’s a bitch, so I don’t have to be one.”
Now that the couple’s marriage woes are behind them and a new, smaller home will make everything all better, Shannon will have extra money on hand. David’s successful construction company, Beador Construction, Inc. opened its doors in 1996 and reportedly earns $13 million annually.
3. Vicki Gunvalson – $7 Million
“Before you judge me, you better be perfect.”
That’s a lot of insurance! Two words for Vicki: Self Made. And though Don most likely took half, it’s only a matter of time before Vicki comes up with another great idea (did you know she has perfume bearing her name?) to put her back on the map now that #cancergate is behind her. Can she get a woo-hoo?
4. Meghan King Edmonds – $5 Million
“In the game of life, I choose my team wisely.”
Here’s something interesting, that amount is Meghan’s net worth, not her husband, Jim Edmonds’ the former baseball player turned sportscaster turned coach turned candle-stick maker who is worth $35 million. How come Heather and Shannon get to combine their net worth with their husbands, but not Meghan? Because this would technically put them at the top of the pack!
5. Tamra Judge – $800K
“My faith is strong, and my ass isn’t bad either.”
Really? Tamra’s not even worth a measly $1 million? She must be spending it as fast as she’s making it, but who are we to judge? LOL! Of course we’re here to judge and it’s her last name so it makes perfect sense.
6. And lastly: Kelly Dodd – ???
“I don’t throw parties, I am the party.”
At this time Kelly‘s financial situation is unknown, but it’s only a matter of time before that leaks, especially if Kelly sticks around for more than a one season on the RHOC.
