Vicki, who’s rumored to take home the biggest salary of the show, owns something of an insurance empire with Coto Insurance and Financial Services and is a two-time author. (Her books are titled More Than a Housewife and Internet Life Insurance Selling Made Easy.) The soon-to-be-divorced mother of two (and grandma) also co-owns Wine by Wives with castmate Tamra Barney. Her luxe 5,400 square foot Coto de Caza mansion is estimated to be worth around $2.7 million.
Coming in second is “fancy pants” Heather Dubrow, a former actress with some financial swagger of her own. Her net worth comes in at $4 million, but she has some help paying the mortgage on that custom-built mansion. Her husband, Terry, is a plastic surgeon who makes a very nice living. (In addition to the slicing and dicing, she and Terry aresaid to have bought and sold nine houses in eight years.) In fact, during her name-changing party on the Season 7 finale episode, she gave away a nice little diamond just for giggles and glam.
Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney have both been in on the real estate sales game (though Tamra’s divorce from Simon Barney left her in her own little home-selling rut). Now they’re both busy launching their own business ventures to boost their status among the OC elite. Gretchen’s put out cosmetic and clothing lines, as well as a music single, while Tamra looks to kick off her first fitness center in the near future.
