Vanderpump Rules season 7 kicked off with a bang last night in the form of Jax Taylor’s “ Decent Proposal ” to now-fiancé Brittany Cartwright at a seafood shack in Malibu, and if the season trailer is any indication, there’s a lot more excitement where that came from.
The highlights: many Lala Kent tears, alcohol-fueled spats involving one DJ James Kennedy, and an irritated LVP lamenting the fact that Tom Tom has no water, electricity, or gas! Will the Toms figure out the much-anticipated cocktail list for their titular restaurant? Will Jax stay faithful to his soon-to-be betrothed? What storm will hit West Hollywood’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.
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 has served as one of the mainstays of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since 2010 (and is reportedly the richest of that lot, too). She and her husband, Ken Todd, own several Los Angeles bars and restaurants including SUR, Villa Blanca, Pump, and now, Tom Tom. She also owns Vanderpump Pets, a pet accessories company, and a rosé line. In essence, what can’t she do?

half a million dollars for every season of Vanderpump Rules, and her total net worth is estimated at $75 million. Photo: Tommy Garcia/Bravo
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.”
Let’s hope he follows his own advice!

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 she has a sweet new (and seemingly normal!) dude named Beau Clark. (Goodbye and good riddance, Patrick Meagher.) On November 27, the announced that she is penning a book. is about, in Schroeder’s words, “what [she] knows best — being basic,” and will hit shelves in April 2019. She is also a tried-and-true #influencer and frequently posts sponsored content. Next Level Basic
Riot Housewives, Shroeder rakes in about $15,000 per episode of VPR. All in all, her net worth is estimated at $300,000. Photo: Tommy Garcia/Bravo
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 recently hit the big screen in this year’s , and also has her own beauty brand, the aptly-named The Row Give Them Lala Beauty.
Kent’s net worth is more disputed than that of her costars — some report it
as $50,000, where others say it’s close to $2 million. Photo: Tommy Garcia/Bravo
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.

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-fiancé had a spin-off show last year, Vanderpump Rules: Jax And Brittany Take Kentucky, and recently teased a possible wedding spin-off, too. Cartwright is valued at $50,000. Photo: Tommy Garcia/Bravo
Apparently, Tom Schwartz is
worth the least out of the VPR gang, and his net worth rings in at $25,000. 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, so this number will very likely go up. Photo: Tommy Garcia/Bravo
Her net worth ranks in at $30,000, just a hair more than that of her husband. She also
launched a lipstick line earlier this year called Pucker & Pout, with hopes of expanding it into an extensive beauty line. Buh-bye, Tequila Katie! Photo: Tommy Garcia/Bravo
The other Tom in Tom Tom, Sandoval is
worth $400,000. This comes largely from his VPR paycheck — he reportedly makes $15,000 per episode — as well as his past modeling career. Up next for Sandoval? His role as best man in Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding! Photo: Tommy Garcia/Bravo
