We’re going to let you in on a little secret: As much as we like to speculate about how much those omnipresent Bravo Housewives make per season, it’s always a bit of a he said-she said. There’s no way to be certain that it’s their actual salary — unless, like Real Housewives of New York’s Sonja Morgan, the star is forced to reveal that income in a court case.
Sonja is in the middle of a difficult bankruptcy case, which brought her income to the public record. This made us curious to see whether Viggle LIVE! users could correctly guess the cabralesque performer’s earnings for the reality hit.
Wetpaint teamed up with Viggle LIVE! to pose that very question, and the results were actually pretty split. An impressive 34 percent of users guessed correctly that the Upper East Side gal makes about $427K per year. However, that also means 66 percent were way off.
Those who missed the mark were the 37 percent of votes who thought she earned over $200K more a year, walking away with a $657,000 salary. That would be impressive, but nope! Meanwhile, 29 percent thought Sonja made a lot less, only raking in $273K (it’s all relative, really).
Sonja’s ongoing bankruptcy issue has forced her into losing her French Riviera vacay home, but at least we know this single mom is pulling in a comfortable living to help balance it out. Plus, in better circumstances, it’s a pretty great gig! Almost half a mill to drink Pinot Grigio and bicker with our co-stars? Sign us up!
