Being a Real Housewife means taking on a pre-conceived reputation of being flighty, ditzy, married to a wealthy man and enjoying a love of drama. However, many of the women from this franchise are not that wealthy. The rest are, but they aren’t all wealthy because of their rich husbands. Some made it completely on their own, others have successful businesses that have allowed them to change their lives since becoming famous, and many are just good with their money. We’ve compiled a list of the wealthiest housewives in the franchise. While going through this list, you’ll note that some women inherited a fortune. Some had nothing and built their net worth from negative to beyond positive, and certain franchises are equipped with more successful women than others. You’ll even note that one of the oldest housewives franchises doesn’t have even a person on the list.
