The ladies of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are obviously all glowing with wealth and stardom, making it difficult to discern the richest horse in this race. But Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 threw down a major gauntlet: Pandora Vanderpump's lavish (and rumored) "one million dollar wedding," designed by the one-and-only Kevin "shi-shi-shi" Lee.
So, let's crunch some numbers. With the additions of Marisa Zanuck and Yolanda Hadid Foster, who is the richest of them all? Is it Lisa Vanderpump? Kyle Richards? Camille Grammer?
The most impressive bank account belongs to the housewife who keeps her cards (and, it would seem, her credit cards) closest to her chest — the ever aloof Adrienne Maloof. And sister isn't some nouveau-riche social climber who met a baller, popped out a few kids, and scored an enviable divorce settlement. (Not that we know anyone like that.) No, Adrienne is co-owner of a whole bucket-load of wildly successful family-owned businesses (Maloof Companies owns, to name a few: the Palms Casino Resort in Vegas, the Sacramento Kings, Maloof Productions, Maloof Music — and pretty much anything else that sounds like, or rhymes with, the word "Maloof").
To put Adrienne's ridiculously vast fortune in perspective, think about things this way: Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino recently sold her granite palace for a cool $3 million. With her reported assets, Adrienne could easily afford to buy Alexis's OC digs a hundred times over, and still have a few bucks left to spare. In short, there's "rich", and then there's "Adrienne Maloof rich.”
And for those statistic-crazy fans out there, here's a handy net-worth ranking for all of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills:
Taylor Armstrong — worth $400,000
Kim Richards — worth $1 million
Brandi Glanville — worth $4.7 million
Marisa Zanuck — worth $5 million (though her husband, producer Dean Zanuck, is worth $20 million)
Yolanda Hadid Foster — worth $15 million (husband David Foster is worth $30 million)
Kyle Richards — worth $20 million (husband Mauricio Umansky is worth $100 million)
Camille Grammer — worth $50 million
Lisa Vanderpump — worth $65 million (husband Ken Todd is worth $85 million)
Adrienne Maloof — worth $300 million
