The producers of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills begged Paris Hilton to appear in the show finale alongside her aunts Kyle and Kim Richards!
But, alas, it wasn’t meant to be.
A show insider revealed:
“Paris was asked to be a part of the finale which will take place in mid-July… She is a big fan of the show and totally supports her family appearing on it, but had to decline because she will be out of the country. Paris will be extremely busy promoting hernew album, and just has too much going on right now to commit to taking on anymore projects.”
The insider continued:
“Producers were hopeful Paris would be able to be a part of the finale, which they could have promoted and publicized. Paris definitely would have greatly bolstered the ratings for the finale, but, her schedule just couldn’t accommodate it.”
That would have been so good for the ratings shes probably too busy fighting off paps lol.
If your sitting there watching The Real Housewives and thinking “I wonder how much money they get” Well now you can find out.
Sources have revealed how much cast members from various installments make every year and some of the numbers on those paychecks are HUGE!
Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Vicki Gunvalson has been with the series the longest and, as a result, is making $450,000 a season! In stark contrast, newcomer Heather Dubrow is only making $30,000.
Although the series began out here on the west coast, the real money is back east. Our gurl NeNe Leakes is the top earner and takes home $750,000 per season, but that number could easily rise to $1 million by next season!
