The Real Housewives of New York City know a thing or two about drama. The ladies are always feuding with one another over something and we just can’t get enough of it.

In addition to catty arguments, the ladies of NY are well-versed in showing off their wealth. The exotic vacations, lavish NYC apartments, and fashion on this show are enough to make anyone jealous. But, as we all know, you don’t actually have to have money to look wealthy.

So, are the women of NYC actually rolling in the dough? And who has the most?

Sonja Morgan

For someone who causes so much drama on the show, Morgan has considerably less money than a lot of the other women. Though an exact amount is not known for Morgan, she is worth around $8 million.

In 2010, the star filed for bankruptcy and claimed nearly $20 million in debt.

Ramona Singer

Singer is one of the original housewives. She is currently worth $18 million.

She makes her money through a number of avenues, such as her fashion line, RMS Fashions, her skin care line, Tru Renewal, and her jewelry, Ramona Singer Jewelry. She also has a Ramona Singer Collection sold on Amazon, and as we all know, she has made her own wine, Ramona Pinot Grigio, which she promotes on the show.

Dorinda Medley

Medley is another housewife who is raking in the cash. Medley is worth $20 million.

While living in London, Medley started her own cashmere company, DCL Cashmere. Her company has had high profile clients, such as Princess Diana and Joan Collins.

Luann de Lesseps

De Lesseps is worth $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. She has most of her money from her marriage to Count Alexandre de Lesseps. But don’t worry, he’s still worth $50 million after divorcing her.

She reportedly makes $20,000 per scene of RHONY, which means if she has one scene per episode, she would make $440,000 per season.

Tinsley Mortimer

Mortimer, one of the newest housewives, is worth $35 million. She was formerly married to Robert Livingston Mortimer, who is the great grandson of one of the Standard Oil presidents.

She also has accumulated money on her own by starring in television shows and through her Riccime by Tinsley Mortimer clothing line.

Carole Radziwill

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Radziwill is worth $50 million, double that of de Lesseps.

Radziwill is also one of the only women with such a long and successful career. Radziwill is an author and well-respected journalist who has published several books. She was also married to Prince Anthony Radziwill who was part of the Polish Royal Family.

Bethenny Frankel

Frankel’s exact net worth is unknown, but it’s safe to say that this mogul is quite comfortable. In 2011, she was named the highest-earning reality star. At the time, she was bringing in $55 million through her Skinnygirl alcohol, two spin-off series, Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After, and her books.

In 2011, she sold her Skinnygirl liquor brand to Beam Suntory Inc. for $100 million.
