Although it’s unclear exactly how much she makes, many of the Real Housewives are not paid the same amount of money. Their pay seems to depend on how many seasons they’ve been on the show, and how “famous” they are. For example, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Denise Richards made $1 million, according to Showbiz CheatSheet.
However, if we were to estimate Windham-Burke’s salary, we could compare it to her costar Kelly Dodd’s, who got paid $150,000 for her second season, according to Showbiz CheatSheet. Comparably, Real Housewives of New York star Leah McSweeney originally was supposed to be paid $3,000 per episode during her second season, but negotiated it up to $10,000 per episode, according to Page Six.
