Soap opera star Eileen Davidson just signed on to appear on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Season 5 and her gigantic salary is said to be bigger than veteran cast member, Lisa Vanderpump's hefty paycheck. Radar Online reports that Davidson, who is known for her roles on "Days of Our Lives" and "The Young and the Restless," signed a deal with Bravo for $750,000, the highest salary ever paid to a "RHOBH" star.
Lisa Vanderpump has always been rumored to be one of the bigger wage earners on "RHOBH." However, she has never earned as much as Eileen Davidson, despite being on the show since 2010. Radar Online reports that Vanderpump will not rule this season, making approximately $500,000, up from the $250,000 paycheck she earned last season.
Another soap star, Lisa Rinna, who played the role of Billie Reed on "Days of our Lives" in the 90s, also signed a contract with Bravo to become a new cast member on "RHOBH"this season. Her salary is rumored to be $450,000 and is considered to be on the low end compared to the other women's pay.
How much will the other "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast members make this season? A production insider revealed to Radar that Kyle Richards and Yolanda Foster will earn, at the most, $500,000. Kyle's sister, Kim, will bring home $450,000 and Brandi Glanville, who made approximately $175,000 last season, is rumored to be receiving slightly more than that to appear on Season 5.
