If you're willing to sacrifice your dignity for a paycheck, Real Housewives isn't a bad gig. The first ladies of Bravo rake in big bucks to cause a ruckus and argue; in addition they get a massive platform for which to launch their products and tirelessly promote them. Of course, Bravo/NBC takes a cut of the profit but the ends justify the means, right?
RadarOnline decided to breakdown who earns what for the network. As to be expected the biggest earners are the biggest drama creators or have the most devoted fan following.
Teresa was able to renegotiate her contract and fought for a higher salary for season five, along with conditions, i.e. getting to add a friend or two to the cast. Rumor has it Teresa is by far the highest earning Jersey lady, beating out fellow veterans Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. There's also rumors that Teresa is in talks to develop a cooking-lifestyle spinoff!
Larsa was fired after one season of RHOM because viewers found her dull and couldn't relate to her storyline which consisted of complaining about all aspects of her fabulous life and degrading "the help." Meanwhile in the off-season Larsa's former NBA star husband Scottie Pippen maybe filed for bankruptcy because he might be broke.
Currently Larsa spends most of her days parading around with Kim Kardashian for exposure on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, but now she's nobody's latch-key famewhore because she just scored her own show. Who do they think is going to watch that?
Now this is the least who-done-it reality TV blind I've ever read, but it seemingly sheds a lot more light on some drama happening on the show it pertains to. The drama is between one new Housewife who recently spilled a super-duper secret on the show and one veteran Housewife!
So behold some Blind Gossip about a certain Real Housewives show!
"This Television Personality likes to provide details of her pregnancy and birth so that she can seem like a good mom.
Only it’s all a lie. The Liar publicly claims to have carried her children and to have given birth to them herself. The truth is that she used her money to hire a surrogate (for more than one child) so she wouldn’t 'ruin her body' and she could have babies 'whenever she wanted.' Yes, she is that rich and that superficial. No medical issues. Just vanity.
Well, someone on her television show has called her on her lie. The price for spilling the beans? A lawsuit. This woman is rich and vengeful and she won’t hesitate to use her money to squelch the truth so that she can maintain her image… and hurt The Spiller.

The History Channel's Pawn Stars is being sued for a whopping $5 million!
The talent agency Venture IAB Inc. signed Richard "Rick" Harrison, Richard "The Old Man" Harrison, Richard "Big Hoss" Harrison, and Austin "Chumlee" Russell as clients in 2007 and again in 2009.
According to the talent agency, they played a part in the deal that led to Pawn Stars, which premiered July 19, 2009 on History.
However, just six months later, the stars of Pawn Stars terminated their contracts with Venture IAB after alegedly being influenced by two Pawn Stars execs, Mary Donahue and Nancy Dubuc, to sign with a friend of theirs, Michael Camacho.
If you've been watching anything on MTV, chances are you've seen previews for it's new reality show Buckwild. It's like Jersey Shore, but with rednecks…and a lot of dangerous looking antics. I think it would make Honey Boo Boo proud.
Remember when Italian Americans and the citizens of New Jersey had such an issue with our favorite GTLers? Well, West Virginians and Southerners are feeling the same way about Buckwild. I have to say though that all of this controversy is making me want to watch the insanity…even though, as a Southerner, I should be totally offended.
Bravo took a leap of stupidity faith, probably hoping for some big ratings, and shelled out big money to have Lindsay Lohan participate in an episode of Million Dollar Decorators.
All was going fine at first, with Lindsay playing along and filming the process of picking out the approximately $200,000 in swag for her rented mansion earlier this spring. Things went south when the show needed to film the big reveal with the troubled starlet, who blew them off and refused to finish taping the footage needed.
Going ahead without her and filming it at the house was out of the question because the home was reportedly so trashed and messy that there's no way they could recreate the final look. To salvage the episode in the only way they could, the producers were forced to cobble together some post-renovation footage that was taped along the way without Lindsay.
They really can't act too surprised over this. The woman is notorious for being an unreliable, uncooperative mess for the past how many years…
TELL US – SHOULD BRAVO SUE LINDSAY FOR SABOTAGING THE EPISODE?
