Appeared in: The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Reality TV star, fitness competitor, cookbook author, and former inmate number 65703-050 — you could say Teresa Giudice (right) has done it all. In 2013, she and her husband (left) were convicted of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud, among other charges.

Before serving 11 and a half months of a 15-month sentence (she was released early on good behavior), Giudice was a RHONJ cast member since season one. Her career includes publishing books Skinny Italian, Fabulicious, Turning the Tables, and more. Some of her cookbooks were New York Times Bestsellers. Giudice’s other television appearances include being on The Celebrity Apprentice.

Behind Melissa Gorga’s (right) success in book publishing and retail brands was financial trouble. At least in 2016, she and husband Joe owed various places money, says Celebrity Net Worth. There was the $2.25 million in a 2007 mortgage, for instance.

The couple also owed $250,000 to various creditors. Before appearing on RHONJ, Gorga stayed at home with their three children while husband Joe worked in real estate. When joining the cast, Gorga tried her hand in music, books, jewelry, and more.

So not all of the Real Housewives are filthy rich — some of them used to be filthy rich like Ms. Danielle Staub (left). Staub became known for her appearance on RHONJ and the drama that happened post-show.

Staub unfortunately had to declare Chapter 7 bankruptcy in June 2012, says Celebrity Net Worth. She listed $500,000 to $1 million worth of debt. To add salt to the wound, Staub had to deal with the release of compromising photos.

Before she was a Real Housewife, Kim Richards was a child star with roles in Disney movies and TV shows in the 70s and 80s. Her reported net worth is a bit confusing.

Celebrity Net Worth indicates Richards made $100,000 per season of RHOBH but also says her total net worth is $100,000 … Regardless, she probably has more money than you, dear reader, or myself.

A celebrity dentist, Karent Sierra truly believes a “perfect” smile can change lives. Sierra was born in New York City but was raised in South Florida — she calls herself a Miami native through and through, however.

Sierra has always had star quality even before appearing on RHOM — she was crowned “Miss Carnival Miami” in 1992, modeled on Latin TV commercials and infomercials and was an occasional hand model (yes, that’s a real job). After RHOM, she dumped her telenovela boyfriend after suspecting him of cheating.

Unlike her Real Housewife peers, Salahi (center) had a very unique entrance into the public eye. She and her then-husband, Tareq Salahi, crashed a White House dinner held for the Indian prime minister in 2009.

Also unlike her peers, her season of Housewives wasn’t that popular. Celebrity Net Worth described the The Real Housewives of D.C. as “ill-fated.” It did chronicle the Salahis’ White House dinner crashing but maybe viewers were just not into it.

Some clients say she’s an excellent lawyer while others complain about her not keeping in touch with them. Interestingly, Phaedra Parks is also a mortician, says the bio on her website. With her forays into business, TV, writing, activism, and more, Parks is indeed a Renaissance woman.

Adrienne Maloof traded the arid landscape of Albuquerque, New Mexico for lush sea breezes in Beverly Hills over a decade ago. A good portion of her money possibly comes from her family’s enterprises in sports and entertainment.

BravoTV says that the Maloof family has been involved with the Sacramento Kings, Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Sweeping Palms Entertainment, and skateboard competition Maloof Money Cup. The TV channel’s website says Maloof is also very charitable with her large chunks of cash.

Dorit Kemsley is no exception. She’s made some of her income possibly from her swimwear company, Dorit. She and husband Paul “PK” Kemsley live with their two kids in a 10,000-square-foot house that’s filled with staff and Paul’s live-in client, Boy George.
