How Much Tamra Judge Really Made From Real Housewives

Real Housewives of Orange County alum Tamra Judge starred on the hit Bravo series for 12 seasons, which is an impressive feat considering other cast members failed to stick around for more than one. And during her time on the show, fans witnessed Judge start multiple businesses, all the way from her gym, Cut Fitness, to her stint as a realtor. Of course, it takes a decent amount of capital to launch a profitable venture, and it's fair to wonder where the mom-of-four got the cash to bankroll her career aspirations. The obvious answer is Real Housewives, although some fans might be in the dark about exactly how much Judge made during her reign. The question is especially intriguing because when viewers first met Judge, she was a stay-at-home mom who didn't have any career prospects. 

So, how much did Tamra Judge rake in from Real Housewives? We reveal the staggering figure below.

Tamra Judge has a sizable treasure chest

When Tamra Judge left Real Housewives of Orange County, she was reportedly making $900,000 a season. Of course, Judge didn't start with this figure, although it's unclear what she made for her first season. To give some context, RHOC star Gina Kirschenheiter was reportedly paid "$63,000 by production and $5,450 by NBC Universal" for her first stint on reality TV, as outlined in court documents obtained by People.

With the money she earned from RHOC, Judge went on to launch Cut Fitness, and most recently, a CBD company. The ex-reality star also bought some luxurious houses with her dough, and she recently sold her Coto de Caza home for a hefty $2 million. Not too shabby.

In light of the coronavirus epidemic, Judge's gym is temporarily closed down, so we're not sure what she'll do for money going forward. It's possible her rumored spin-off with BFF Vicki Gunvalson will work out, or perhaps she'll fall back on her reported net worth of $2 million.
