The cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County started the franchise and a new report is revealing their salaries.
Tamra Judge, who joined the show in season three, has had drama with a lot of her cast mates. Judge reportedly makes a whopping $600,000 per season. A source for Bravo claimed these numbers were not accurate and explained that the wealth is split in some situations. For example, Tamra’s son, Ryan Vieth and his baby mama, Sarah Rodriguez, split $200,000 to be on the show as family members, an insider said, pulling in hefty paychecks even though they’re not full-time cast members. “Sarah and Ryan have a great story line,” a source shared, pointing to their vicious fights over their daughter and Judge bailing them out time and again.
According to RadarOnline, the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, makes $750,000 per season. Vicki is known for her outrageous storylines with her love life and ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers.
But what about newbie Kelly Dodd? “Kelly was only given $150,000 to come back again,” a source claimed. Wow. That’s quite a difference!
Are you surprised by the difference in the salaries?
