Hot on her high heels are Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer of The Real Housewives of New York City, who pull in a cool $500,000 each per season. After castmates Alex McCord and Jill Zarin got the boot last season, the two remaining NYC stars were given huge raises - nearly doubling their salaries, according to Star.

Orange County's Vicki Gunvalson, the only member of the Southern California show who’s been featured for all eight seasons - is next with $450,000 per season.

Fan favorite NeNe Leakes, who now appears on NBC's The New Normal and has previously appeared on Fox's Glee, pulls in $350,000 a season for her loud-mouthed antics on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She's accumulated a net worth of $4.5 million, thanks to her popularity with viewers.
