Producers on reality shows like The Real Housewives franchise and the now-defunct Jersey Shore are always super protective about not letting salary information for their stars leak out. Besides ruining the “reality” of it all, it can also cause serious issues between cast members. And until recently, VH1 has been pretty successful in keeping the payment info of their Mob Wives: New Blood stars under wraps.
But thanks to new cast member Alicia DiMichele’s issues with the law, her income from the cable network has now been made public record. So how much does Alicia make per episode?
Wetpaint asked Viggle LIVE! users that very question during last Thursday’s (January 9) episode of Mob Wives: New Blood, and though opinion was somewhat split, half of you were right on point — you must be keeping up with your reality gossip!
According to the vote, 51 percent of users were correct in guessing that Alicia earns $8K per episode on the show’s fourth season. Another 26 percent thought that she was making even more, with $12K a week, and 23 percent thought she only earned $4K.
During her ongoing trial for embezzlement, prosecutors revealed that Alicia makes $8K per episode in her first season of the VH1 reality show — $96K total for the 12 episodes she’s currently contracted. Not too shabby!
Tune into all of the drama on Mob Wives: New Blood on Thursday nights at 10 p.m. ET on VH1.
