Here's How Much Money Erika Jayne Is Really Making On RHOBH

Fans of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" have been fixated on the finances and legal woes of longtime cast member Erika Jayne, following the bombshell accusations surrounding her estranged husband, Tom Girardi.

As the Daily Mail reported, Girardi has been accused of embezzling millions of dollars from the victims of a 2018 Boeing plane crash, among other tragedies, to fund his luxurious lifestyle with Jayne. Much of the fallout from the accusations that first emerged back in 2020 have been featured during Season 11 of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," during which Jayne has claimed to have "zero dollars" to her name. 

In a trailer released ahead of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Season 11 reunion special, Bravo host Andy Cohen is also shown telling Jayne, "I know what you make on this show," during a heated exchange, leaving many fans curious to know what the "Pretty Mess" singer actually makes per season on the hit reality show (via Showbiz Cheatsheet). 

Erika Jayne takes home a six figure salary thanks to RHOBH

According to The New York Times, Erika Jayne is currently earning at least $600,000 per season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," a figure that perhaps wouldn't cover her infamous $40K-a-month glam squad that was regularly featured on the show.

Speaking to Us Weekly, one insider claimed that Jayne's current salary is likely to increase dramatically if she decides to return for Season 12. "It's going to be much more next season ... The ratings were off the charts because of her story line and what she's exposed. What she's dealing with [regarding] Tom [Girardi] and the court is not over yet so you can only imagine what next season is going to bring," the source commented. 

The insider went on to say that after being "put through the wringer and following producers' orders," Jayne will almost certainly "demand a higher paycheck" if she's asked back for another season. However, the additional cash will likely be used to cover much of Jayne's upcoming legal costs, as she is currently being sued for a massive $25 million amid her husband Girardi's bankruptcy case. 

By comparison, Jayne's fellow longtime cast mates, such as Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna, are believed to earn a similar amount per season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," while Dorit Kemsley reportedly earns a much lower figure of $100,000 each year (via Showbiz Cheatsheet).
