Vicki Gunvalson Has Sooo Many Business Ventures

by Marenah Dobin

When I think of Vicki Gunvalson from The Real Housewives of Orange County, two things come to mind. The first is "Woohoo," her signature phrase that she shouts whenever she's out on the town. But in stark contrast, the second thing that comes to mind is Vicki constantly talking about how much she works. It is honestly pretty excessive (and occasionally condescending to the other ladies), but I really do believe that she works as much as she says. If you watch the show, you've no doubt noticed this trait, too, and might be wondering about Vicki Gunvalson's net worth.

As the "OG of the OC" she's the only original Real Housewife left standing. She has her insurance business (you know, the that one she chronically brags about) and she does plenty of other things, too, so I feel like Vicki has to be worth a lot of money, right?

According to CelebrityNetWorth.com, Vicki has an estimated net worth of $7 million. She is all about being a smart businesswomen and as such she knows better than to put all of her eggs in one basket. That $7 million comes from a variety of different business ventures.

Vicki is the only original Housewife remaining on RHOC, the first series in the franchise. It is reported that Vicki makes $500,000 per season on Real Housewives. I wish I got paid that much to argue with my friends!

She Sells Insurance

We all know that Vicki sells insurance, because she has mentioned it a million times. Vicki's company is called Coto Insurance and Financial Services. Her company sells life, health, auto, home, and business insurance. With her perseverance and the publicity of her hyping it up, I'm sure her business profits are constantly increasing.

She's An Author

Vicki has an autobiographical book called More Than a Housewife and a second book titled Let's Talk Money: A Women's Guide to a Lifetime of Wealth about women's "unique set of challenges when saving for retirement and building an income that lasts."

She Is A Paid Pubic Speaker

You can hire Vicki to speak at events about topics such as selling insurance, starting a business, being a mother, and staring on reality TV. It has been reported that it can cost up to $10,000 to hire her for a speaking engagement.

She Endorses Products On Instagram

She has her own promo codes for online store coupons and endorses fashion and beauty products with accompanying photos and hashtags. I have no idea how much money this brings in, but it has to be a good amount considering how often she takes these deals.

She Has A Jewelry Line

Vicki has her own line of diamond jewelry available on Amazon called Vicki's Diamonds. Her collection has rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.

She's A Spokesperson For ClubDetox

Vicki is a spokesperson for ClubDetox, which means that her testimonials encourage people to become members on the site to access to weekly recipes, workout plans, and detox guidance in addition to buying products like cleansing juices.

She Is An MKCollaboration Celebrity

Vicki Gunvalson is a MKCollaboration Celebrity, meaning she gets to designate favorite items in categories such as clothing, accessories, makeup, and jewelry. Her fans get to "shop Vicki's faves." You can even get looks featured on RHOC!

Wow. Vicki has utilized her business acumen in a wide variety of areas. It seems like no matter what happens the "OG of the OC" will have plenty of backup plans if anything ever falls through.
