How The Real Housewives of Orange County Made Their Millions
Do you know which of the O.C. Housewives is a Canadian heiress, and which one is a self-made mogul? Find out how the cast made their millions.
Tamra JudgeEstimated Net Worth: $800,000
Though she's has a long tenure on RHOC, Tamra surprisingly has the lowest net worth of all the O.C. Housewives. Her reported annual salary of $350K doesn't near the salaries of other Real Houseiwves stars like Nene Leakes or Bethenny Frankel. Tamra's husband is a fitness instructor and together they own Cut Fitness, but if Vicki's to be believed, the parking lot is usually empty...so maybe it's a money pit rather than a big profit driver?
Meghan King EdmondsEstimated Net Worth: $5 million
While Meghan's net worth is estimated at around $5 million, her husband Jim's is much higher - a staggering $25 million. Jim started playing in the MLB way back in 1993 and had a career that spanned nearly two decades. After he retired from pro baseball, he inked a lucrative deal with Fox to be a sports broadcaster. Prior to marrying Jim, Meghan worked as a sales rep for a pathology software firm.
Peggy SulahianEstimated Net Worth: $6 million
Peggy is a stay-at-home mom whose money mainly comes from her husband, Diko, who's the founder of Giovanna Wheels, a company that makes designer wheels and rims for luxury cars. After starting the company over 20 years ago (it's named after the couple's daughter Giovanna), Diko started an umbrella company, WTW Corporation, and now has a group of automotive companies, including GFG and Koko Kuture.
Vicki GunvalsonEstimated Net Worth: $7 million
Vicki pulls in a reported $500K per season of RHOC, which has certainly added up over her time on the show. Outside of the show, Vicki is the owner and operator of a successful insurance business, Coto Insurance, which now has employees in Atlanta, Washington and Bellevue. Vicki has also had a slew of less successful business ventures, though Some of her failed ideas include the ill-fated Vicki's Vodka, a Kardashian-style app, a lipstick collaboration and a skincare line.
Kelly DoddEstimated Net Worth: $9 million
Like Peggy, Kelly stays home (though she obviously receives $$$ from RHOC). Her soon-to-be ex-husband Michael was president and CEO of LeapFrog, a tech company known for educational toys. In 2016, Michael cashed out of LeapFrog, meaning he sold his shares of the public company - presumably for a very pretty penny. The couple recently listed their home for $6 million.
Lydia McLaughlinEstimated Net Worth: $15 million
Lydia and her husband Doug have many of their own business ventures, but Lydia comes from major family money. Her grandfather, Geoff Stirling, was a Canadian media mogul who founded Newfoundland Television and the Newfoundland Herald. Before passing, he had an estimated personal net worth of $100 million. As for Lydia, she's made good money from the string of businesses she and Doug have owned over the years, which include an art gallery, a jewellery line, a digital marketing agency and two magazines - Beverly Hills Life and Nobleman.
Shannon BeadorEstimated Net Worth: $20 million
Shannon's husband David comes from a successful construction family that has its own company, Beador Construction, which David and Shannon now own. The company, which does construction on highways, streets, and bridges, pulls in a reported $13 million per year.
