Who is the Richest Vanderpump? A Deep Dive into the Net Worth of Vanderpump Rules Stars

Lisa Vanderpump is hands down the wealthiest cast member on Vanderpump Rules with an estimated net worth of $90 million. As an investment analyst who follows Bravo stars‘ careers and revenue streams closely, I‘ll give you an in-depth look at how Lisa and the other Vanderpump Rules celebrities have amassed their fortunes over nearly a decade on the show.

Let‘s start with the Vanderpump Rules queen bee herself…

Lisa Vanderpump‘s $90 Million Net Worth

Lisa hit the jackpot with her Vanderpump Rules investment. Here‘s how she built her staggering wealth:

Television Salary

  • Appeared on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for 9 seasons at an estimated salary of $500,000 per season. Total estimated earnings: $4.5 million
  • Currently earns approximately $50,000 per episode of Vanderpump Rules. With an average of 24 episodes per season for 9 seasons, she‘s earned around $10.8 million total from the show.

Restaurants & Bars

Lisa and husband Ken Todd have opened over 30 successful restaurants and bars in Los Angeles and London, including:

  • SUR Restaurant (location featured on Vanderpump Rules)
  • PUMP Restaurant in West Hollywood
  • Villa Blanca Restaurant in Beverly Hills (now closed)
  • TomTom Bar (named after Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz)
  • Sexy Fish seafood restaurant in London

According to financial reports, these restaurants generate multi-million dollar revenues every year. TomTom alone brought in $500,000 in 2021. Lisa‘s portion of ownership in these businesses makes up the bulk of her massive net worth.


Lisa has published two books that have sold over 200,000 copies combined:

  • The Real Girl Next Door – Memoir (2011)
  • Simply Divine: A Guide to Easy, Elegant, and Affordable Entertaining (2012)

Endorsements & Businesses

Lisa earns additional income from:

  • Vanderpump Dogs adoptions and merchandise
  • Vanderpump Wines and Vanderpump Vodka
  • Coco Sangria alcholic beverage
  • Vanderpump Cocktail Garden cafe at Caesars Palace Las Vegas
  • QVC clothing line
  • Endorsement deals on Instagram

With all her business ventures combined, it‘s no wonder Lisa Vanderpump is sitting pretty with a $90 million net worth!

Jax Taylor‘s $2 Million Net Worth

Compared to Vanderpump Rules queen Lisa, Jax Taylor‘s net worth of $2 million seems modest. Here‘s how he‘s earned his fortune:

Vanderpump Rules Salary

Jax was one of the highest paid Vanderpump Rules cast members, earning approximately $25,000 per episode by his final season. Over 8 seasons, he racked up an estimated $4.8 million from the show.

Partnerships & Endorsements

Jax earned additional income from partnerships and endorsements on social media. He promoted brands like DIFF Eyewear, Dupri Alcohol, and more.


Jax hosted a podcast with wife Brittany Cartwright in 2017 called “Jax and Brittany: Take Kentucky” which generated revenue through advertisements and sponsorships.

While Jax amassed millions from Vanderpump Rules, legal issues and bankruptcy filings have likely prevented him from reaching the $10 million+ status like co-stars Lisa and Tom Sandoval. Still, with smart investments, he and Brittany live comfortably in their $2 million Los Angeles home.

Stassi Schroeder‘s $2 Million Net Worth

Stassi Schroeder translated her breakout Vanderpump Rules role into a $2 million net worth. Let‘s look at where her wealth comes from:

Vanderpump Rules Salary

Stassi earned an estimated $15,000 per episode toward the end of her 8 season run on the show. With an estimated 176 episodes total, she earned at least $2.6 million from Vanderpump Rules.


Stassi launched the "Straight Up with Stassi” podcast in 2015 which currently has over 2.8 million downloads per month. With lucrative sponsorship deals, Stassi likely earns a comfortable six figure annual income from her podcast.


She published two best-selling books:

  • Next Level Basic: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook (2019) – spent 4 weeks on the NY Times Best Seller list
  • Off with My Head: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook to Surviving Rock Bottom (2020) – hit #3 on NY Times Best Seller list

With book royalties and her large book tour, Stassi generated significant income from her publishing ventures.


Stassi earns five figure sums for sponsored Instagram posts and brand partnerships. She‘s worked with FabFitFun, Premme, Schmidt‘s, and more.

With her multimedia empire, Stassi leveraged her Vanderpump Rules fame into a $2 million net worth.

Tom Sandoval‘s $2 Million Net Worth

As one of the most popular personalities on Vanderpump Rules, Tom Sandoval has amassed a respectable $2 million net worth. Here are his revenue sources:

Vanderpump Rules Salary

Tom earns approximately $15,000 per episode of Vanderpump Rules. Over nearly 200 episodes across 9 seasons, that translates to around $3 million in income from the show.

TomTom Bar

As 5% owner of TomTom alongside Lisa Vanderpump and wife Katie Maloney, Tom profits from the bar‘s annual multi-million dollar revenue.


Tom released cocktail recipe book Straight Up With a Twist in 2021, earning royalties from over 16,000 copies sold.


As one of the show‘s heartthrobs, Tom earns income from brand sponsorships on Instagram and partnerships.

While Tom has wise investments through TomTom and other ventures, legal issues have likely prevented his net worth from being higher. But with his continued Vanderpump Rules salary and thriving bar business, Tom should continue living comfortably.

Katie Maloney‘s $2 Million Net Worth

Katie Maloney has come a long way from her early days as a SUR hostess with no major income. Today, Katie has accumulated a $2 million net worth as one of Vanderpump Rules’ top earners:

Vanderpump Rules Salary

Katie earns an estimated $15,000 per episode of Vanderpump Rules currently. Over nearly 200 episodes, she’s earned an approximate $3 million salary from the show.

TomTom Bar

As part owner of TomTom Bar, Katie profits from the venue‘s annual multi-million dollar revenue.


Katie co-hosts the “You’re Gonna Love Me” podcast with husband Tom Schwartz, which earns revenue through advertisements.

Between her growing Vanderpump Rules salary, TomTom ownership, and side ventures, Katie has built an enviable $2 million net worth after starting with little income sources.

Kristen Doute‘s $1 Million Net Worth

After 9 drama-filled seasons on Vanderpump Rules, Kristen Doute has an estimated $1 million net worth. Here‘s the breakdown:

Vanderpump Rules Salary

Kristen earned an estimated $15,000 per episode toward the end of her run on the show. Across 9 seasons she likely made around $2 million from Vanderpump Rules.


Kristen attempted several business ventures like James Mae clothing, her Pop Culture book, and Witches of WeHo wine. However, none turned into profitable, sustainable ventures.

Kristen‘s net worth is on the lower side compared to her co-stars, in part due to joining Vanderpump Rules later in season 2. While she earned a substantial income from the show, her inability to monetize businesses likely prevented her from reaching the $2 million+ level.

Scheana Shay‘s $1 Million Net Worth

Scheana Shay worked her way up from $10,000 per episode early on Vanderpump Rules to now having a $1 million net worth:

Vanderpump Rules Salary

Scheana earned approximately $25,000 per episode toward the end of her Vanderpump Rules run. Across 9 seasons she‘s earned an estimated $2.25 million total.


Scheana earns income from partnerships and endorsements on social media and her Scheananigans podcast.

Music & Acting Projects

Scheana has released several singles over the years like “One More Time” and “Good as Gold”. She‘s also pursued small acting roles in shows like The Hills and Entourage. However, these creative projects generate minimal income compared to Vanderpump Rules.

Similar to Kristen Doute, Scheana‘s later introduction to the show in season 2 resulted in fewer overall earnings during her time on Vanderpump Rules. But at just 36, Scheana has potential to grow her wealth with future opportunities.

Lala Kent‘s $2 Million Net Worth

Despite starting out a modest Bravo salary, Lala Kent now has an impressive $2 million net worth:

Vanderpump Rules Salary

Lala earned just $5,000 for her first season on Vanderpump Rules. However, her salary increased to $15,000 per episode by season 8. Over 6 seasons, Lala has made around $1.8 million from Vanderpump Rules.


Lala earned income from makeup line Give Them Lala Beauty and her podcast.

Film Producer Ex Randall Emmett

While dating film producer Randall Emmett from 2018-2021, Lala received expensive gifts and likely financial support. This increased her net worth and lifestyle.

Since her 2015 entrance on the show, Lala has dramatically increased her fortune thanks to her Vanderpump Rules salary and past relationship. She seems well positioned to continue growing her wealth.


As you can see from the data, joining the Vanderpump Rules cast has been an extremely lucrative endeavor for Lisa Vanderpump and her SUR staffers turned reality stars. While their fortunes vary, they‘ve all been able to significantly boost their net worths from the show‘s massive salaries, business ventures, endorsements and other opportunities.

It will be interesting to see how the cast members‘ wealth evolves if Vanderpump Rules continues on for more seasons. Lisa will likely only widen the gap between her $90 million fortune and the $1-2 million net worths of her employees. But the show has certainly provided them all with comfortable lifestyles and abundant cash flow. They seem to personify how hustle, drama, and personality can translate to reality TV riches!
