Vicki Gunvalson’s Huge Salary Cut After ‘RHOC’ Demotion
The hits keep coming!
Not only was Vicki Gunvalson demoted on the Real Housewives of Orange County, but she also took a major cut on her whopping $1 million salary, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.
According to an insider Vicki, 57, will be going from earning $60,000 per episode to a mere $20,000.
“With her $60,000 per episode before this, her ‘RHOC’ salary was approximately $1.26 million,” said the source, noting that even if “The OG from the OC” appeared in all 21 episodes of Season 14 of the Bravo hit, she would earn $420,000 total — a far cry from her former salary.
“A new Housewife begs for $5,000 an episode, so for Vicki to be getting that much she is very lucky,” sniped the source.
In other bad news for the reality star, “Vicki likely won’t be in all of the episodes this season,” the insider said.
As Radar recently reported, Vicki was left out of a new RHOC Season 14 cast photo, which included Tamra Judge, 51, Shannon Beador, 55 and Kelly Dodd, 43. Gina Kirschenheitr, 35 and Emily Simpson, 43, were also returning and were joined by the newest addition to the cast, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, 41.
However, Vicki ignored the slight and instead posted on Instagram a message gushing about the show’s upcoming debut on Aug. 6.
“For the past 14 years I’ve opened up my life, my loves, my ups and downs on The Real Housewives of Orange County and I am proud to be the ‘OG of the OC,’” she wrote.
“I am back again this season right in the middle of the action, and I hope you have as much fun watching the show as I did living it in front of the cameras,” she added.
