Here are the Wealthiest ‘Real Housewives’ Stars!

“The Real Housewives reality franchise has taken over prime time television. Millions of people around the world tune in to watch the guilty pleasure and to get a taste of what it’s like to walk a mile in custom thousand-dollar pumps and drink champagne with almost every meal. Some of the women, like Lisa Vanderpump, have become so popular from the show that they’ve gotten their spinoffs.

Cameras follow these ladies around from sunup till sundown, observing hundred-dollar manicures and wild parties, which often end in drinks being thrown in each other’s faces. But what happens when the cameras aren’t rolling? And who were these women before they started on the series? Take a look at some insider info about your favorite Real Housewives stars.

Dorit Kemsley

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Estimated net worth: $50M

Dorit Kemsley earned her degree in communications and moved to Italy to gain some real-world experience working in the fashion industry. After working in a swimwear company for a decade, she moved to New York to open her own business, Dorit, which focused on swim and resort wear for women. But the industry wasn’t the only thing that would be budding in New York…

Dorit met her husband, Paul, when she was living in NYC, and they got married in 2015 in an incredibly lavish ceremony in the city. Now, the couple lives in a gorgeous mansion in Beverly Hills with their children. She recently fell into some bad publicity after adopting a puppy from Lisa Vanderpump’s animal rescue and then abandoning it only to end up back in a kill shelter (when it was rescued from a no-kill, at least.) According to “Radar”, Dorit and Paul are facing some severe financial turbulence these days.

Denise Richards

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Estimated net worth: $12M

Before Denise Richards agreed to let cameras follow her around for the sake of the Housewives, she was used to being on the set of significant films. The bombshell actress starred in several blockbuster hits, including “Wild Things” and “Starship Troopers.” She also played a Bond girl in the 1999 Pierce Brosnan movie, “The World is Not Enough.” She recently gave an interview in which she said she asked her daughter not to watch “Wild Things” until she’s older – no matter how proud Richards may be of her fantastic acting in that movie.

Aside from her extensive list of film credits, she’s also known for her marriage (and divorce) with Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen, with whom she has two daughters. She was remarried in 2018 to Aaron Phyphers, who she famously revealed…is very well endowed on an episode of the show, when she was out to lunch talking to Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards. The actress mainly focuses her energy on her youngest daughter, Eloise, these days.

Vicki Gunvalson

The Real Housewives of Orange County

Estimated net worth: $7M

Gunvalson is known as the “OG of the OC,” according to Bravo, and for a good reason. After being married for eight years to Michael J. Wolfsmith, things ended in a pretty lousy split. But rather than letting it destroy her, she turned around and built her own fortune in the form of her insurance company, Coto Insurance. Gunvalson is said to be worth an estimated $7 million.

After the whole situation where Gunvalson accused fellow OC housewife Kelly Dodd of being a druggie, her role on the show has been reduced to that of the occasional appearance. But she’s also appeared on several other shows over the years, including “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” “Watch What Happens: Live and Dr. Phil.” She has her website, vickigunvalson.com, where she sells her insurance and links to all of her other ventures and social media pages.

The couple’s son, Josh, is behind bars on an attempted murder charge, although he continues to maintain his innocence to this day. The family is still working always to try and get him out of prison.

But even if she is a super successful entrepreneur, it doesn’t mean everything is sunshine and unicorns. She’s had quite the dramatic past few years, thanks to her teenage son coming into the spotlight for transphobia. Needless to say, she’s had to do some serious damage control.

Lydia’s “old money” wealth was passed down to her from her grandfather, Geoff Stirling, who was a media mogul in Canada where she is originally from.
