Here's How Much Katie Maloney-Schwartz Is Really Worth

Katie Maloney-Schwartz is an OG cast-member on Bravo's unstoppable mega-hit Vanderpump Rules. Married to Tom Schwartz, he of Tom Tom fame, since 2016, the Utah native is known for her sharp tongue and no-nonsense attitude, dispensing with wannabe bullies including Jax Taylor and DJ James Kennedy with effortless aplomb. Aside from being an in-demand reality star, with all the perks associated with such a job, Maloney-Schwartz has her own wine company with BFF Stassi Schroeder and ex-BFF Kristen Doute, called Witches of Weho, as well as her own beauty site, Pucker and Pout (via Stylecaster).

Although she's certainly a fan of the finer things in life, with her hubby telling Decider in a joint interview he's still "salty" about the amount the couple spent on their wedding, there's no denying Maloney-Schwartz has earned the right to splash out. She's completely self-made, and has worked hard enough to justify expensive homes, second wedding rings, and everything else besides.

Katie Maloney-Schwartz has made reality TV her business

Her side hustles likely bring in decent money, but Maloney-Schwartz's main gig is still Vanderpump Rules. Although she doesn't waitress at boss Lisa Vanderpump's Sexy Unique Restaurant anymore, the checks she earns from appearing in the show are nothing to be sneezed at. If you're wondering how much the Vanderpump Rules cast members make per episode, it's enough to make us all wish we were reality stars.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, OGs like Maloney-Schwartz, Schroeder, and Doute, have been earning $25,000 per episode since renegotiating their contracts in 2017 and 2018, compared to the $10,000 each they made for the first season. The core cast therefore banked a massive $525,000 each for seasons 6 and 7, or closer to $600,000 a piece if you take into account the three reunion episodes they're contracted to take part in.

Maloney-Schwartz and her bar-owner husband are spending their money well, too. According to Reality Blurb, they recently purchased a $1.9 million home just a stone's throw from his business partner, Tom Sandoval, and partner Ariana Madix in swanky Valley Village (where Taylor and wife Brittany Cartwright also own a home, as well as Doute). It's a smart investment that will surely stand the test of time for the happy couple, but according to Celebrity Net Worth Maloney-Schwartz isn't doing too bad in her own right regardless. She's worth an impressive $500,000 to date.
