Ha, well this is funny! I love it. The Real Housewives of New York City ladies are definitely not broke in normal standards, but apparently they are for the Real Housewives franchise. I mean I have to admit, I watch these shows, and I find it funny when I read about one of their houses going into foreclosure. Not on a personally level, of course I feel bad for them, but they are on a show that is set up to show off the glitz and glamour and being broke like the rest of normal America is not part of that.
Apparently Bravo is looking more towards the making the cast like the cast of its Beverly Hills franchise – super rich! I think in NYC you an find that!
Of course Bravo gave a casual response to this rumor, saying: “We are always casting for new housewives in every city.”
So I was curious – what do these ladies actually have?
The site Celebrity Net Worth gives an estimate of celebrities net worth using public info, but with anything, it is hearsay and speculation.
Jill Zarin is worth $35 Million, mostly from her husband business and family money.
Sonja Morgan $30 Million – From her ex-husband’s John Adams Morgan “old” money, but she recently filed for bankruptcy.
Ramona Singer is worth a cool $18 Million from her businesses and her husband’s jewelry company.
Kelly Bensimon $15 Million From her modeling and world-renowned photographer ex-husband, Gilles Bensimon.
Bethenny Frankel $100 Million – From her best selling books, videos, selling her SkinnyGirl brand and $40k per episode!
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is surprisingly only worth $2 Million!
Alex McCord is the brokest wife of them all, only banking $400, 000. As if that wasn’t already obvious!
