Erika Jayne’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” salary has become a hot topic of conversation after Bravo released the trailer for the upcoming four-part reunion.
There’s a point in the reunion when Andy Cohen asks Erika why she didn’t leave her estranged husband Tom Girardi sooner than she did. “Where did I want to go?” Erika replied, perhaps hinting that she didn’t have enough money to do it on her own. “I know what you’re doing on this show,” Andy continues.
Because of this part of the reunification alone, many fans wondered how much money Erika was paid per episode of “RHOBH” and whether it was enough for her to live without Tom’s support.
Here’s what you need to know:
Erika is paid very well for her time on Real Housewives. According to The New York Times, Erika made $ 600,000 for season 11, which was filmed over a period of several months.
In May 2021, The Sun estimated that Erika was making about $ 500,000 per season of the show. Perhaps that was her salary the year before, because the “housewives” should receive salary increases when their contracts are extended.
Erika has also made money from her music career and has published several songs over the years, according to People magazine.
Meanwhile, Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Erika has a net worth of $ 5 million. According to Page Six, she is currently being sued for $ 25 million in the bankruptcy proceedings of her future ex-husband’s former law firm.
If Erika is brought back for the next season of “RHOBH,” which TMZ report says will be that the new season will be filmed soon, it is possible that she will see a raise.
According to Us Weekly, sources say that Erika’s act for the final season of “RHOBH” generated huge audiences and that she could be rewarded for it. “The ratings were off the charts because of her storyline and what she revealed. What it is dealing with [regarding] Tom [Girardi] and the dish isn’t over yet so you can only imagine what the next season will bring, ”a source told the outlet.
The source told the outlet that Erika’s “RHOBH” salary “will be much higher” for the next season and that the reality star will “ask for a higher paycheck” if asked to return.
It seems possible that Erika could make more than $ 750,000 for the new season of the show, based on the salaries of other “housewives” in the franchise. According to Screenrant, former “RHOBH” star Denise Richards made $ 1 million per season, while former “RHONY” star Bethenny Frankel took in a little more.
Screenrant reports that Nene Leakes was the highest paid “Housewives” star of all time, grossing $ 2.85 million for her final season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”. Will Erika get such a high boost? Everything is possible.
