Real Housewives of Potomac’s net worths, ranked: Karen Huger, Gizelle Bryant, Wendy Osefo, Candiace Dillard ... which RHOP season 6 cast member is the richest?
Ever since its 2016 debut, The Real Housewives of Potomac has catapulted its cast of fierce and fabulous women into reality TV superstardom. The show is the eighth iteration of the popular American reality TV franchise and showcases the lives, loves, triumphs and shenanigans of a group of housewives living in and around Potomac, Maryland, an area close to Washington, D.C.
Among the franchise’s avid aficionados, the unofficial verdict is that Potomac is currently the best Housewives series on air. This well-deserved distinction is in no small part thanks to the cast’s signature sass, singular charm and effortless ability to produce some of the quickest and funniest quips in reality TV history.
Furthermore, the Potomac ladies, unlike some housewives from other cities, show an authenticity and willingness to tackle some deep and personal matters that has surely increased their likeability … and the show’s ratings.
But who is the wealthiest of this bold bunch of beauties? We take a look at the current cast’s estimated net worths, according to the stats nerds on the world wide web.

While Karen is well known for her razor sharp tongue and meme worthy one-liners, her estimated net worth of US$10 million additionally ranks her as the wealthiest housewife of the series.
The self-proclaimed “Grand Dame” of Potomac is married to Ray Huger, a successful tech entrepreneur who Karen has referred to as the “Black Bill Gates” and is reportedly worth US$40 million.
While the couple has endured some major tax-related money woes in recent years, their net worth is still reported to be the highest of the group. Evidently an opportunist, Huger has also made the most of her reality TV fame and launched her own fragrance line, La’ Dame Fragrance by Karen Huger.
Ashley Darby: Estimated US$5 million
