How Much Do 'Real Housewives' Get Paid? NeNe Leakes Is Top Earner Across Franchise

"Real Housewives" get paid big bucks for airing their dirty laundry on TV for millions of viewers.

According to OK! magazine, which listed the salaries for the casts of "Real Housewives of Atlanta," "Real Housewives of New Jersey," "Real Housewives of New York City," "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," "Real Housewives of Orange County" and "Real Housewives of Miami", NeNe Leakes makes the most from Bravo. It pays to stick around: Longtime cast members LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Vicki Gunvalson also make big bucks for their long-lasting "Real Housewives" shows.

Click through the gallery below to see the top earners from each show and they are a far cry from what "Beverly Hills" housewife Brandi Glanville claimed. (Note: These salaries do not include other deals or businesses, like Ramona Singer's wine, Lisa Vanderpump's restaurants, Teresa Giudice's cook books, etc.) And click back over to OK! magazine for a full "Real Housewives" salary breakdown.
