Granted, acceptance into The Real Housewives club dictates that a woman be of a certain, indispensable self-made, or hubby-earned income to begin with, but these ladies of excess don't do too badly for themselves with their Real Housewives salaries. We don't know the salary breakdown per episode, but thanks to BET.com we do have some idea of what the gals bring home each season.
NeNe Leakes leads the pack of RHoA salaries, comanding an impressive $750,000 per season, plus $250,000 for the reunion shows. That means NeNe is making $1 million a season as a Real Housewife. Not too shabby!
NeNe's frenemy, Kim Zolciak isn't far behind, earning $600,000 per season and a $150,000 bonus for the reunion show.
And it turns out the Househusbands each make a pretty penny as well. Cynthia's husband, Peter Thomas, is the highest paid hubby at $75,000 per season, so long as he's available for filming on request. Kim's man, Kroy Biermann, and Phaedra's hubby, Apollo Nida, each get $50,000 per season with the same availability condition.
Are you surprised by how much the RHoA stars earn?
