January is the perfect time to stay indoors and catch up on important things like laundry and watching as many Real Housewives episodes as possible.
During the breaks, you can take a look at the homes of the sassiest, wealthiest and most popular housewives here.
If there’s one person you associate with the Real Housewives brand, it’s probably Teresa Guidice. She’s feisty and smart, and holds nothing back.
Starring on Real Housewives of New Jersey since its inception in 2009, Teresa has written six books, been on Celebrity Apprentice and is regularly on the cover of newsstand magazines.
While she claims a net worth of $11 million, she and Joe have had significant legal and financial trouble. The couple were convicted on charges related to tax evasion, as well as mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud. Teresa served 15 months in prison and Joe served 41. They have declared bankruptcy and had multiple homes foreclosed on.
Fortunately, in spite of the drama, the family still has their main home in Towaco, New Jersey. The six bedroom home was on the market for $3.99 million, but when they couldn’t find a buyer, they took if off the market and continue to live there.
While Lisa Rinna wasn’t one of the first housewives on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she is one of the most popular. She has had a successful career on television, from acting on soap operas, to hosting Soap Talk to appearing on Dancing with the Stars. She has also written three books, and her net worth stands around $8 million! Unlike other stars on the show, Lisa has developed a fan following for her congenial nature, her ability to laugh at herself, and for coming across as friendly and approachable.
She lives with her husband in a mansion in, of course, Beverly Hills. She loves her “sanctuary” and regularly posts pictures of her home and garden on Instagram.
An original Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, Lisa Vanderpump spent nine seasons on the show before being given her own spinoff show, Vanderpump Rules.
While trained as an actress, Lisa and her husband earned their $75 million fortune by running and owning dozens of bars and restaurants in London and the LA area. Several have become LA hotspots, and one is featured on her new reality television show.
They bought a mansion in Beverly Hills in 2011 for around $10.2 million. The home, which they’ve named Villa Rosa, has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a two-story library, winery and massive master suite.
Kandi Burrus is a famous African American singer and musician who joined Real Housewives of Atlanta in the second season. She has become a fan favorite, and has had multiple spinoff specials on Bravo. She is reportedly paid more than $2 million per season and her net worth is more than $35 million!
She had a few rough years with her personal life, but in 2014 she married Todd Tucker, and has been happily married since. Todd is featured in Kandi’s spinoff shows.
Their family lives in a 7,000 square foot mansion in Atlanta, which she bought in 2012 for about $500,000.
NeNe Leakes was a Housewife on the Atlanta series from the start, and her bold, even brash personality has built her quite a following, of both fans and haters. She has developed a side career in acting and television, and has also published books tied to her success on Real Housewives. Her strong personality was on full display when she starred in season 11 of Celebrity Apprentice and walked off the show over a disagreement with a cast member.
NeNe is one of the best-paid Bravo personalities, making $2.85 million dollars for each season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Her net worth is about $14 million. She used some of that money to buy a $2.1 million mansion in the Atlanta suburb Duluth in 2015, and has loved living in “Casa Lakes” ever since.
These women are outrageous, dramatic, and sometimes over the top. But their personalities have made them famous and wealthy, so let’s admit we’re not haters, we’re just jealous!
