There are many articles about the actual net worth of the Real Housewives franchise. They are, presented to us as wealthy women, so it’s always a surprise to some fans when they are, in fact, broke.
Here’s the latest article about the wealth of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, mostly known, some surprises. Not vouching for the accuracy.
From the article:
Kandi Burruss is an American R&B singer-songwriter, actress, record/TV produce (web show Kandi Koated Nights). This former member of the group Xscape from Atlanta also runs a clothing boutique TAGS, designs intimate products for her Bedroom Kandi line.
Net Worth: $35 Million
Kandi may be worth more than this. By making her Bedroom Kandi line of sex toys into franchises, she may become the next Mary Kay. This woman has the Midas touch. (Get that pre-nup, girlfriend!)
Porsha Stewart and the Stewart Foundation for Cancer Research, Bravo claims she is also working hard to develop a career in music in 2013.
Net Worth: $16 Million
UPDATE: Kordell Stewart filed for divorce March 22, he plans to leave Porsha with nothing except her salary from Bravo, an estimated $150,000.
Not really. She’s a housewife married to an ex-football player, Kordell Stewart. If they divorce, she won’t get even half that, especially if they remain childless. Kordell Stewart has a son with Tania Richardson, one of Sheree Whitfield‘s old pals (Season 2)
Television personality, actress, and former stripper, has a recurring role as Coach Roz on Glee. She has also appeared on Maury, The Celebrity Apprentice, The Amandas, The Game, Let’s Stay Together, andhas a recurring role on The New Normal.
Net Worth: $4.5 Million
This seems accurate. Nene has taken advantage of the opportunities afforded her very well.
Well-known entertainment attorney and philanthropist. Managing partner of The Parks Group, P.C., a law firm based in Atlanta that mostly targets athletes and entertainers.
Net Worth: $2 Million
May be accurate, since Phaedra seems to pay little attention to her law practice these days, foolishly (IMO) wasting time and resources on booty videos, tasers and other such nonsense.
Former Miss USA, actress, TV personality, currently TV/film producer and CEO of Moore Vision Media.
Net Worth:$1.5 Million
It’s hard to say about the volatile Ms. Moore. She needed a job so desperately she left Los Angeles to move to Atlanta and participate in RHOA with a fake storyline.
Founded The DeShawn Snow Foundation, a nonprofit to help teen girls develop better self esteem. Snow also has served on the boards of three additional charities.
Net Worth: $1.5 Million
What did her ex-husband, former basketball star Eric Snow, leave her after the divorce? Even with the baby mama drama, it seems she should be worth more than this.
Professional wig designer by day, wanna be singer by night. Released two singles: "Tardy for the Party" (which reached number three on iTunes) and "Google Me."
Net Worth: $500,000 (downgraded in 2013 from $1.5 Million)
Query: Does this include Kroy Biermann’s NFL salary?
Was a housewife on seasons one through four. A fashion designer, she launched She By Sheree (clothing line) and made a guest appearance on the TV series The Game, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, The Bonnie Hunt Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the 2009 Soul Train Awards.
Net Worth: $250K
Only ex husband Bob Whitfield and her mother, Roberta Ferguson, know if Sheree has any money. The house she is building, dubbed Chateau Sheree, is on land owned by her mother. Sheree has restraining orders against three local Atlanta bloggers for trespassing on the property.
Lisa Wu Hartwell:
Lisa Wu Hartwell Real estate mogul and entrepreneur who launched Wu Girls jewelry line after the real estate market crashed. She has also created and developed Hart 2 Hart Baby clothes, and has another clothing product line sold by Closet Freak.
Net Worth: $100,000
After Lisa aka Sharon Millette, ran through football player Ed Hartwell’s money, she left him, looking for a new wallet. Her first ex-husband, entertainer Keith Sweat, has full custody of her two oldest children.
Net Worth: $50,000
I doubt this is accurate. Cynthia probably receives more than that in child support for her daughter from her relationship with character actor Leon Robinson.
