Many viewers have wondered how much money the cast of the hit show Vanderpump Rules gets paid to create drama on the hit show and now we have some answers.
Tom Sandoval got a bump in salary in February of 2016, but tried to cut his old agent out of the equation and according to documents filed by the agent his salary was revealed, TMZ reports.
Peter Young, the owner of STG talent agency, says he helped Tom land a 5-year contract with Vanderpump Rules. Young says Sandoval got just under $38k for the first 2 seasons. Young was supposed to get 10%, but says he only got $1,300.
According to docs, before season 3, Tom renegotiated his deal without using Young and said, “I just don’t want to pay you anymore.” Young says he’s heard Tom is making $15k per episode now, athough he doesn’t know the exact amount, but since he made the original deal, Young griped to the state labor commission that he still deserves his 10 percent.
The labor commission agreed and ordered Tom to pay up, but Sandoval is appealing the decision. Since Tom is one of the original characters on the show this gives us a basis of the cast’s salaries. Of course, people in smaller roles such as James Kennedy would not make as much money.
