If there’s one thing the Real Housewives franchise does well, it’s finding women with money. From city to city, the women of The Real Housewives have one thing in common, they are loaded.
But as with most things, wealth isn’t created equally. And naturally, some women have more money than others.
The women of ‘Potomac’
RHOP has some seriously heavy hitting bank accounts. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Robyn Dixon is worth the least out of the women and even she has a net worth of $3 million.
Monique Samuels and Gizelle Bryant are both worth $4 million. Samuels’ husband, Chris, is estimated to be worth $17 million and Samuels makes her money managing his real estate investments and from her blog, Not For Lazy Moms.
Bryant makes her money from her makeup line, EveryHueBeauty, as well as her modeling and acting gigs that she has had.
Candiace Dillard is worth $4.5 million. The former Miss United States makes her money as the CEO of a pageant consulting company and is the co-founder of hair brand, Prima Hair Collection. She also co-owns Chateau Salon Suites, a space for beauty professionals.
Ashley Darby’s net worth comes in at $5 million. Most of her wealth is accredited to her and her husband Michael’s restaurant, Oz.
The richest member of the cast is Karen Huger. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the grand dame is worth $10 million. Most of her money is related to her husband, Raymond, who worked as the CEO of tech company, Paradigm.
The women of ‘Atlanta’
The women of RHOA have a wider range of bank accounts. Porsha Williams is tied for the lowest net worth. In 2013, she was suspected to be worth $16 million but now her net worth is only $500,000.
Cynthia Bailey is also worth $500,000 and now reportedly earns $300,000 per season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Though Eva Marcille is one of the newer housewives, she has a higher net worth than Williams and Bailey. She is currently worth $3 million due to her success as an actress and her modeling career.
Shamari DeVoe is another newcomer, but she’s worth $4 million. She accumulated most of her wealth as the lead singer of Blaque. And she has also worked as an actress, appearing in Bring it On and Honey.
The OG real housewife, Nene Leakes is currently worth $14 million. She reportedly makes $1 million per season of RHOA. In addition to being on the reality show, she has had an extensive acting career, appearing on Glee, The New Normal, The Celebrity Apprentice, The Amandas, The Game, and Let’s Stay Together.
Kandi Burruss is the richest of the RHOA crew by far. She is worth a whopping $35 million! She earned most of her money as a member of the singing group Xscape and through writing songs for popular artists and groups like Whitney Houston, Pink, Boys II Men, Ed Sheeran, TLC, and more. She also has a line of intimate toys called Bedroom Kandi.
Who is worth more?
Though most of the women of Potomac have higher net worths than several of the women of Atlanta, the combination of Burruss’ and Leakes’ wealth makes the women of Atlanta worth more than the women of Potomac as a whole.
