We all know by now that some of The Real Housewives have been putting on a facade about how rich they really are.

However, while some are simply trying to pull the wool over our eyes about their finances, there are, in fact, some cast members who are loaded, no matter which way you look at it.

You might be surprised by some of the women who made the list, and you might also be shocked at those who didn’t make the cut.

Our list includes several current Housewives and a few former cast members who have long bid goodbye to the show but are still doing well.

Leaving the popular Bravo franchise didn’t put a dent in their pockets, and that’s how you know they’re rolling in dough.

Here’s our list of the ten richest Real Housewives.
