This Is How Much The Vanderpump Rules Cast Is Worth

Vanderpump Rules season eight kicked off with a bang last week, and we found our favorite first family of West Hollywood happily nested in Valley Village. There was also a crying Scheana, Tom Schwartz in a t-shirt dress, and some fresh meat named Max Boyens. And if the season trailer is any indication, there's a lot more excitement to come.

The highlights: many alcohol-fueled spats, a booze cruise, the wedding of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, and Tom Sandoval getting arrested. And that's just a minute-long clip. What other storms will hit Bravo's first family this season?


What we do know is that, since the show's inaugural season in 2013, the SURvers' stars have been on the rise — and so too have their bank accounts. So who is the richest? Ahead, we break down how much money each Vanderpump Rules star is worth.

Lisa Vanderpump

It should come as no surprise that the VPR matriarch reigns supreme when it comes to money in the bank. In addition to co-producing and starring in Vanderpump Rules, LVP served as one of the mainstays of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for nearly a decade (and is reportedly the richest of that lot, too). She and her husband, Ken Todd, own several bars and restaurants including SUR, Villa Blanca, Pump, Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, and Tom Tom. She also owns Vanderpump Dogs, a dog rescue organization, Vanderpump Pets, a pet accessories company, and a rosé line. In essence, what can't she do?

She reportedly earns half a million dollars for every season of Vanderpump Rules, and her total net worth is estimated at $75 million.

Jax Taylor

This bachelor-no-more reportedly earns $25,000 per episode of Vanderpump Rules for being The Bad Boy at the center of the SUR orbit's drama. And he is now adding premade drink mix entrepreneur to his résumé, with Just Add X coming in 2019.

He has an estimated net worth of $400,000, most of which comes from his Bravo paycheck, with help from his paid appearances and sponsored social media posts. In 2016, he told Complex, "If I’m smart about it, and if I live reasonably, I’ll be good for the rest of my life."

But last May, according to E!, Taylor was hit with a $80,424 tax lien, right around the time he announced that he and Cartwright purchased a home together.

Stassi Schroeder

Things are pretty peachy for Stassi these days.

In addition to serving as a cast member on VPR since its early days, Shroeder is the host of podcast Straight Up With Stassi, and has appeared in Summer House, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Amazing Race, and Hollywood Medium. Ever the renaissance woman, she also created a national holiday and has a rosé line with Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney-Schwartz called Witches of Weho. And she has a sweet (and normal!) dude named Beau Clark.

She also is the New York Times-bestselling author of Next Level Basic — a book about embracing your basicness.

According to Riot Housewives, Shroeder rakes in about $15,000 per episode of VPR. All in all, her net worth is estimated at $300,000.

Lala Kent

Despite her relative newbie status — Kent didn't become a full cast member until season 6 — she is quickly catching up to her costars when it comes to net worth. In addition to starring on VPR, she has hit the big screen in such films as The Row and the upcoming Axis Sally with Al Pacino. She also has her own beauty brand, the aptly-named Give Them Lala Beauty, and a burgeoning music career. She recently teamed up with Vanderpump costar Scheana Shay for a new song and music video.

She is engaged to producer Randall Emmett, who is thought to have a net worth of $16 million. Kent, herself, is reportedly worth $2 million.

Scheana Marie

Before Vanderpump Rules, Scheana Marie made her Bravo debut on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, when it was revealed that the SUR server had an affair with Housewife Brandi Glanville's ex-husband Eddie Cibrian during their marriage.

Now a full-fledged Bravo star in her own right, Scheana Marie made $63,000 for season 3 of VPR according to Betches, and is making even more now. She also made out with a nice chunk a change following her divorce from Mike Shay in 2017 — the likes of $50,000. Her reality TV stints, plus a few acting gigs (did anyone see Femme Fatales?), a Vegas show called "Sex Tips," and a pop single called "What I Like," have all contributed to her wealth, which reportedly adds up to a total of $150,000.

Brittany Cartwight

Once Cartwright and Jax Taylor met in Vegas in 2015 and he convinced her to move to L.A., the rest was history, and she soon became a crucial member of the SUR orbit. In addition to being a cast member on VPR, she and her now-husband had a spin-off show, Vanderpump Rules: Jax And Brittany Take Kentucky. Cartwright is valued at $50,000.

Tom Schwartz

Apparently, Tom Schwartz's net worth rings in at $2 million. He wasn't an original cast member and never worked at SUR, which might be why. (Well actually, he did a shift...sort of...) But he is one half of Tom Tom, his biggest claim to fame to date.

Katie-Maloney Schwartz

Her net worth ranks in at $30,000. She launched a lipstick line called Pucker & Pout, with hopes of expanding it into an extensive beauty line. Buh-bye, Tequila Katie! She and Tom bought a house in Valley Village last year for $1.9 million.

Tom Sandoval

The other Tom in Tom Tom, Sandoval is worth $2 million. This comes largely from his VPR paycheck — he reportedly makes $15,000 per episode — as well as his newfound career as a restauranteur. He and Ariana Madix bought a house in Valley Village last year for over $2 million.

Ariana Madix

Ariana Madix joined the cast of Vanderpump Rules in 2013 when she became a server at SUR and met Tom Sandoval, her future boyfriend and co-author of Fancy AF Cocktails. Madix's main income stream comes from Bravo, though she's also a frequent poster of sponcon and a former actress (see: Anger Management and College Humor).

Last year, Madix and Sandoval purchased their Valley Village pad for $2 million. Her net worth reportedly rings in at $1 million.

Dayna Kathan

The state of the newest SURver's finances are unknown, but if she's anything like her cast mates, she'll go on to make a pretty penny. Apart from her gig at SUR, Kathan is a stand-up comedian. She also appeared on Vanderpump Rules in season 7, when the girls went to Solvang, CA, for a wine tasting trip.
