Since this “OG from the OC” has stuck with the show since the very beginning, does her paycheck reflect her loyalty to Bravo?
According to OK! Magazine, Vicki is indeed the highest paid Real Housewives of Orange County star. For just a few months of filming, Vicki Gunvalson rakes in $500,000 per season. That’s not too shabby, especially considering Vicki runs her own insurance business as well.
How do her fellow OC Housewives stack up in comparison? Gretchen Rossi (a regular since Season 4) makes $375,000, while Tamra Barney (who joined in Season 3) takes in $325,000. At the bottom of the totem pole is Alexis Bellino, who gets paid a comparably low $175,000.
No word yet on the salaries of fellow RHOC cast members Heather Dubrow and Lydia McLaughlin. While Heather only recently joined the show in Season 7, we have a feeling her past career as an actress and biting wit could net her a bigger paycheck than Alexis. As Season 8’s newest addition, Lydia is most likely making the least of them all.
