For a show called The Real Housewives, the events that occur can often seem pretty unreal — but the series are simply a look at what the world is like when money is just an object. The combined net worth of The Real Housewives of Dallas stars is reportedly over $20 million, and according to a popular turn of phrase used by The Notorious B.I.G., it can be assumed that since these women have more money, then they are bound to have more problems. One of the problems that might arise this season will likely manifest itself in the conversation that many people (or at least reality stars) with wealth have — "Who among us has the most?"
If there's one thing that people on reality television who have a lot of money enjoy, it's having more money than other people around them. Calculating net worth serves as a concrete number signifying their "status" when it comes to finances, but it doesn't begin to touch the aspects of their life that bring them true value. While some Real Housewives may refrain from bringing financials into petty arguments, others may use this as a weapon when the arguments start getting real. So fans can stay in the loop, here's a look at the cast members' estimated net worth.
According to her Bravo bio, Deuber works as a medical professional in the world of plastic surgery, and she is listed as having a net worth is reportedly $1.5 million, according to the-net-worth.com. Deuber works primarily as an assistant to her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Deuber, as well as managing her own practice focused on aesthetic injectables, according to her bio. It appears that these two are a medical power couple of equal clout, and their prowess in plastic surgery likely makes them very popular amongst their colleagues in Dallas.
As a model, actress, and entertainer for over 15 years according to her bio, Hendra is no stranger to the cameras. After years of experience, including hosting her own fashion web series, Hendra has accumulated an estimated net worth of $1.8 million, according to the-net-worth.com. Her history on camera will likely help her feel right at home on RHOD.
Locken is used to being in the limelight, having first come to national attention as a top 10 finalist for Miss USA in 1989. Since then, Locken has appeared in a variety of commercials and accumulated a net worth of approximately $2.5 million, according to the-net-worth.com.
Stephanie Hollman is married to the locker king of Dallas — Travis who operates Hollman, a company that serves as the "largest producer of wood veneer and plastic laminate lockers in the United States." While that may not sound like a glamorous job, it's nothing to sneeze at — Stephanie's net worth is reportedly $18 million, according to the-net-worth.com, making her the richest of the Real Housewives of Dallas. Becoming an actor or a famous surgeon may provide brief fame, but if you're looking for that cold hard cash — get into the locker business.
Redmond is a unique case among the Real Housewives, as there aren't listings for her on usual net-worth resources. Furthermore, it looks like given Redmond's primary career she doesn't have a very high net worth. Redmond served as a cheerleader for the Dallas cowboys for five years, but according to The Atlantic, Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders reportedly make "$150 per home game, and there is no pay for rehearsals." But, it seems that Redmond has done well for herself regardless, fitting in nicely alongside women whose net worth exceeds a million dollars, although being a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader living in Dallas probably also has its own set of perks.
The Real Housewives of Dallas are just the latest in the long-running Real Housewives series, and many of the same occurrences can be expected, but with a special southern twist. And, while these strong, financially successful women might end up arguing over rich people problems, the audience may just watch and realize that maybe instead of measuring net worth in finances, it's also valuable to measure one's net worth in the parts of their life that bring them joy — be it children, charity work, or even financial prowess. We'll just have to see how much of those things factor into these ladies lives on Monday night.
