The Richest 'Vanderpump Rules' Cast Members Ranked from Lowest to Highest (& the Wealthiest Has a Net Worth of $90 Million!)

When Vanderpump Rules debuted in 2013, it followed a cast of aspiring models, actors and musicians as they struggled to make it in the entertainment industry.

Now in its ninth season, fans have watched as the stars of the show have launched makeup lines, scored book deals and even started their own restaurants.

The show itself has also become quite lucrative for the cast. According to THR in 2020, the “core cast” of the series made around $25,000 per episode after negotiations that took place in 2017 and 2018, with Lisa Vanderpump said to make more than double that number.

We’ve compiled the net worths of Vanderpump Rules cast members, past and present, and ranked them from lowest to highest. Click through the gallery to see who make it to the number one spot!

Lance Bass Says Jax Taylor Is Stepping Away From Their Business, Jax Says He Isn't Amid His Controversial Comments

Lance Bass recently mused on his podcast that his business partner, Jax Taylor, should also be let go from Vanderpump Rules due to past racist comments that have surfaced.

One of the instances happened when he commented on the size of 90 Day Fiance star Jay Smith’s nose back in 2018.

Lance said, “He will lose out. I do not see Bravo keeping him. I have a feeling soon this will be done. It gets bigger and bigger.”

“It’s going to cost him everything,” he added “He’s stepping down from [our] Just Add X [business venture]. We can’t be involved and associated with any of this going down. We have to do the right thing.”

Just Add X is a cocktail mix company and unfortunately, Jax has a different side of the story.

“Last week the Just Add X website had been hacked, showcasing some hateful slurs, which Jax felt horrible about. In an emotional state, Jax had texted Lance and the Just Add X team offering to step down from the company if that was the direction they wanted to take,” Jax‘s rep told Us Weekly. “The team immediately followed up with a phone call with Lance and the team reassured and fully supported him.”

The statement added, “It was decided that Jax would continue to stay on the team and that they all had his back given these unpredictable times. The statements from Lance on the podcast today are not only untrue but also extremely confusing and shocking to say the least. Jax is still very much a partner and founder of Just Add X and supports the team and the brand whole-heartedly.”

Bravo just fired four other stars of Vanderpump Rules for racist comments.

These Celebs Want Vanderpump Rules' Jax Taylor Fired

Jax Taylor is being put on blast by a handful of celebs for his past actions.

The Vanderpump Rules star was one of the big names from the Bravo show who wasn’t fired over his treatment of Faith Stowers in the past.

Faith still thinks Jax should be fired, alongside Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute and these two other stars.

“I got DMs from other shows, from other females on other shows saying that Mr. Taylor had said some crazy things to them that were racial,” she explained during an interview with US Weekly. “So I think he gets a pat on the back a lot. But I think that if you’re going to do it for two people, they should do it for some other people as well.”

Faith isn’t the only one calling for Jax‘s actions to have consequences.

Billie Lee, who is transgender, claimed that Jax refused to film with her on the series.

“He refused to film with me because I was trans and called him out on his white cis privilege,” she tweeted. “Stop celebrating his disgusting actions. #CancelJaxTaylor.”

Another complaint comes from 90 Day Fiance‘s Ashley Martson, who says Jax made racist comments about her husband’s appearance.

Ashley called out the network before sharing receipts of Jax‘s comments about Jay Smith‘s appearance.

“Your mans nose is the size of his head…” Jax commented on one of Ashley‘s previous Instagram posts.

She went on to explain why the comment was offensive: “When your nose or my nose is referenced as large it’s probably just a large nose. Black people have been historically colored to an ape or monkey, meant to be derogatory.”

“One of the most well known racial stereotypes is referencing a black persons nose, again suggesting it is similar to that of an ape,” Ashley continued, adding that she’s “happy to send any literature your way from history books to help you understand as to why a white person shouldn’t EVER comment on the size of a black persons nose or lips for that matter.”

Fans are also wondering why Jax is still with the network. See their reactions below:
