The only original member of The Real Housewives of Orange County who’s still on the show, Vicki Gunvalson, gets paid $500,000 per season. She’s worth $7 million, mostly from her career in the insurance and financial services industry. Vicki’s been expanding her business in Bellevue, Washington and Atlanta, and who knows, maybe Oklahoma is the next city Gunvalson will conquer now that her daughter lives there. But she’s no Heather Dubrow, the brunette on RHOC; Dubrow’s worth $30 million. She’s married to plastic surgeon Terry Dubrow.
A lot has changed in the life of Vicki Gunvalson since the first episode of RHOC. She got divorced from her second husband, Donn Gunvalson, she got a lot of plastic surgery (facelift, boobs), became a grandmother (twice) and is in a relationship with a man no one seems to like or trust, Brooks Ayers, a healthcare sales adviser. On the RHOC “secrets revealed” reunion this week, she didn’t flinch when asked if she’d charge Brooks rent if he ever moved in with her. Yes. Vicki has said many times, “I want the power and the money, and I want them both.”
