'RHONY's Carole Radziwill Shares Show Salary

Former RHONY Carole Radziwill reveals how much she got paid while she was on the show.

"The first season you don't get paid really anything," Carole admitted of her payday on the Behind the Velvet Rope With David Yontef podcast. "The first year everyone gets paid $60,000."

Carole said she refused to sign for that amount. She also revealed that makeup and wardrobe additional expenses come out of their fees.

"I was like, 'I'm not doing it for that. I'll do it for a hundred.' They had blown up the show at that point and right. They'd fired like four people… I guess they were desperate," Carole said.

"I only found out… that Heather and Aviva didn't get $100,000 because then the second season we were negotiating and they gave us $150,000. Heather thought it was great. I'm like, 'It's not that great.' And then I realized they had just paid her the $60,000. Of course, I immediately told her because I wasn't gonna like pretend or lie to her."
