Bethenny Frankel sold Skinnygirl for millions but she's still hungry for more money, has learned.

Sources told Page Six that Frankel took in over $1.5 million for the latest season of The Real Housewives of New York, and is leading the cast battle to get salary increases as she has "been deemed reliable reality TV… she is controlled chaos."

"They can't pay everyone $1 million — they can't afford that," an insider said, noting that the other women including Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps could take in up to $400,000.

A show insider also revealed that now "there is the usual back-stabbing, claw-digging and nastiness" going on behind-the-scenes to top each other's salaries.

"When the show first started, these women were making $15,000 for the season," another source noted.

As reported, Jules Wainstein is leaving the show as her divorce battle rages on. The rest of the cast for season nine has not been confirmed yet.
