The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards is looking for a big pay raise, Life & Style magazine has learned, especially now that she knows co-star Lisa Vanderpump pockets $2 million a year to appear on RHOBH and spin-off series Vanderpump Rules.
“She believes she should get $1.5 million per season, with additional money for appearing at the reunion,” an insider says.
The source adds that Kim, 51, who was not a regular cast member last season, will remain a “friend” on the next season. “She wouldn’t even make $150,000 for that,” says the insider.
But Kim feels she’s worth big money — with Lisa’s nemesis Yolanda Hadid now just an occasional guest star, “Kim believes that there is simply no drama without her.”
Bravo execs aren’t necessarily on the same page. “Kim is absolutely delusional if she thinks producers are going to give her anywhere near Lisa’s huge paycheck,” the insider explains.
