Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live highly anticipated Christmas special, O Come OG Faithful, celebrates the top “OG’s” of its successful Real Housewives franchise. The special will feature the OGs from most franchises, which includes:

  • Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
  • Ramona Singer from The Real Housewives of New York City 
  • Vicki Gunvalson from The Real Housewives of Orange County
  • Nene Leaks from The Real Housewives of Atlanta 
  • Bethenny Frankel from The Real Housewives of New York City 
  • Teresa Giudice from The Real Housewives from New Jersey

And while some fans may hotly object to the list, since technically the series has other women considered to be an “OG,” these are the women who are still on the show and are slated to appear on the Christmas special. Each lady is powerful in her own right, but what about financially? Who is making bank? And who is maybe a little light this holiday season?

6. Teresa Giudice

Franchise: The Real Housewives of New Jersey 

Net worth: -$11 million

Salary per season: $600,000

Unfortunately, not only is Giudice in the red, but she’s also considered to be one of the most “broke” Real Housewives in the entire franchise. Giudice was sitting on top of the world when she debuted on RHONJ. She paid for frivolous items with wads of cash and wouldn’t think of living in a home previously owned by another person. But after she and her husband Joe were busted for bank fraud, bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, she lost everything.

5. Vicki Gunvalson

Franchise: The Real Housewives of Orange County 

Net worth: $7 million

Salary per season: $500,000

The insurance business has been kind to Gunvalson as she’s pulling in a heavy salary these days. Gunvalson is literally the OG of the OG, as RHOC was the first series in the entire franchise. When the series began, Gunvalson was married to Donn and was working from her home. Her pal, Lauri Peterson was also working from Gunvalson’s home office. However, as time went on, Gunvalson’s empire exploded. She divorced Donn, went through a horrible relationship and today seems to be quite happy with new beau Steve Lodge.

4. Nene Leaks

Franchise: The Real Housewives of Atlanta 

Net worth: $14 million

Salary per season: $1 million

Leaks was the OG of Atlanta but left the show for a while to pursue acting. She appeared on Celebrity Apprentice but walked out when tensions flared with Star Jones. Leaks also had a role in the short-lived comedy, The New Normal, plus appeared on Dancing with the Stars. Her rocky marriage was documented on RHOA as she divorced and then remarried Gregg. Although she left the show for a period of time, she’s back on RHOA and better than ever. She’s also considered to be the highest paid Real Housewife throughout the series.

Met some adorable new friends today! ♥️❄️

Franchise: The Real Housewives of New York City 

Net worth: $18 million

Salary per season: $500 million

Singer is almost the “meme queen” of the franchise because she gives the network plenty of material to use. From robotic runways to going on that “Ramonacoaster,” Singer is definitely a mainstay of the New York franchise. She appeared to be happily married to Mario for several seasons but shocked fans when the couple divorced. Today she runs several successful businesses and continues to defy gravity with her ageless skin.

2. Bethenny Frankel

My fur is faux, but I’m real AF.

A post shared by Bethenny Frankel (@bethennyfrankel) on

Franchise: The Real Housewives of New York City 

Net worth: $25 million

Salary per season: $1 million

When Frankel first appeared on RHONYC she was a struggling young chef. Fame and fortune eventually came when she launched her Skinny Girl brand. And the rest is history. During the height of creating her business, Frankel stepped away from RHONYC. Plus she left after a devastating fight with former friend Jill Zarin. During her time away, she married, had a child, tried her hand at a talk show. And then went through a nasty divorce and returned to the series.

1. Kyle Richards

Franchise: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills 

Net worth: $50 million

Salary per season: $270,000

The wealthiest OG of the Bravo special, Richards likely gets the majority of her net worth through her husband, Mauricio Umansky. Umansky is worth a reported $40 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. And while Umansky is an extremely successful Beverly Hills real estate agency, Richards is also a successful business owner. She owns her own boutique and recently produced the series, American Woman, which was ultimately canceled. Richards, along with her sister Kim were also child actors. And Richards famously appeared in the iconic horror film, Halloween.
