LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – How much does Bravo paid its Real Housewives per year? If you are cast member of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, New York, New Jersey, or the original Orange County, you might be surprised by today’s news, especially if your check stubs don’t match. Since 2010, news reports have claimed that Bravo has dramatically increased annual salaries among its Housewives. But are those annual salaries for some Housewives now near one million per year? Yes, claims a new report today.
In 2011, Jill Zarin told news that RHONY salaries were allegedly increase so much by Bravo that the women were paid in season four as much as they were paid in seasons one to three, combined. “The first, second and third season salary pretty much added up to the fourth season. I worked really hard.” Zarin said by season four Bravo dramatically increased salaries across all franchises. “They’re getting a lot of money now, so that’s another thing.”
In December 2010, one report in Wetpaint claimed that RHOA cast members were getting $360,000 per year checks. At the time, that report didn’t claim any difference in salaries among the cast members, claiming each Housewives in Atlanta was getting thirty-thousand per episode.
In October 2011, the NYPost claimed that RHONY members earned seven-thousand five hundred per season in earlier seasons. But in season four, Zarin and Ramona Signer were earning $500,000 per season, claimed the Post.“Would a girl talk about how much she gets paid?” Sonja Morgan told news at the time.
So if you are a Bravo housewife currently, and you are getting paid roughly three hundred to five hundred thousand dollars per year, you might not be pleased to learn other women are getting paid more, a lot more. MediaTakeOut is claiming that Bravo is paying at least one housewives one million dollars per year, and others almost as much.
The new report claims that NeNe Leakes gets in salary plus reunion a staggering one million dollar per year check from Bavo. Kim Zolciak gets seven hundred fifty thousand dollars. Rounding out the cast are Sheree ($700,000), Kandi ($550,000), and Phaedra and Cynthia ($375,000).
And what do husbands of housewives get paid? Interestingly, the report claims each man gets his own amount. On RHOA, Peter gets paid more than Kroy and Apollo, claims the report.
