Adrienne Maloof: Net Worth $300 million
Adrienne is the richest of any of the housewives on any of the Real Housewives shows. She is the daughter of a billionaire (her father made his money as a Coors beer distributor). Some of her family's holdings include the Sacramento Kings, the Sacramento Monarchs, Maloof Productions, Maloof Music, and the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
Adrienne is currently divorcing her husband of nine years, cosmetic surgeon Paul Nassif (whose personal net worth is $14 million).
Lisa Vanderpump: Net Worth $65 million (With Husband $150 million)
Who doesn't love a Brit with a quirky sense of humor? Lisa is charming and we admire her even more because she is a successful businesswoman.
Lisa started off as an actress, appearing on Baywatch Nights and Silk Stalkings. When she was 21, she married restaurateur Ken Todd and together they opened 26 successful restaurants in London.
Now they live in the U.S. and own two celebrity hang-outs: Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills and Sur in West Hollywood. Lisa designed and decorated all of their restaurants and homes. She is also an amazing cook. If anyone knows how to entertain, she does. Thanks, Lisa, for writing to help the rest of us host a party in style.
Camille Grammar: Net Worth $50 million
Even though Camille only contributes to the show part-time, she still holds our interest. Her greatest claim to fame was her marriage to Kelsey Grammar, the star of popular, long-running sitcoms Cheers and Frasier. Their subsequent divorce, without a pre-nup, left her with quite a fortune: $50 million! Before she met Kelsey (who is worth $120 million), Camille was an actress and dancer. During their marriage she worked as a writer and producer for their company, Grammnet Productions. Now, it seems, she is content to raise her children and be a Real Housewife.
Kyle Richards: Net Worth $20 million (With Husband $120 million)
Kyle has quite the life: enormous house, handsome husband, healthy children, and lots of money. What she also has is a big personality, which probably came in handy as a child when she was a TV and movie actress. Today she is not only known as a Real Housewife, but also as the aunt to Paris and Nicky Hilton. (Kyle is their mother's sister.)
Her financial situation sky-rocketed when she married luxury real estate broker Mauricio Umansky. He is worth $100 million.
Dana Wilkey: Net Worth $12 million
Camille said on the show, "Anyone who really has money doesn't ever talk about it." Apparently, Dana (officially a friend, not a cast member) missed that memo. She talks about her money and what things cost constantly. It may be gauche, but it's certainly interesting to watch. $25,000 sunglasses, anyone?
Dana lived a modest life with her mother until she was a teenager. Her mother died in a car accident and Dana went to live with her very rich father. She has always had a drive to succeed and is a successful business woman in her own right. She founded an agency that does product placement for the entertainment industry and also works as a celebrity party planner. Her specialty is elaborate events, like the infamous $60,000 tea party for Taylor's four-year-old daughter's birthday.
Dana recently broke off her engagement to her son's father. Sorry, Bravo. No castle wedding this year.
Brandi Glanville: Net Worth $4.7 million
This season Brandi officially upgraded her status from a friend to the housewives to official cast member.
Brandi spent 17 years as a model, appearing in Glamour and Cosmopolitan. She also modeled for Giorgio Armani, Chanel, and Gucci. Her marriage to actor Eddie Cibrian launched her into the public eye. Then, when the pair divorced (not amicably), Brandi came away with a nice chunk of change. Sources say she is writing a tell-all book about her divorce. Oh my, nothing like a woman scorned.
Kim Richards: Net Worth $2 million
Children of the 1970s: Raise your hand if you remember Disney's Witch Mountain. That child star was Kim Richards! Kim continued her acting career into adulthood, only taking a break to raise her four children. Kyle and Kim are sisters, which also makes her an aunt to Paris and Nicky Hilton. Quite a successful family.
Taylor Armstrong: Net Worth $100,000
Taylor was born in Oklahoma and worked as a pharmaceutical representative for Pfizer before her marriage to investment banker and venture capitalist Russell Armstrong. Russell fell upon hard financial times and, sadly, committed suicide. Taylor has been very open about abuse that occurred in the marriage. She currently serves as Chief Creative Director of BeautyTicket.com and volunteers for the 1736 Family Crisis Center.
