2010 was a big year to make money if you were a top reality star. According to The Daily Beast the "Highest Paid Reality TV Star" is Kim Kardashian, bringing in $6 Million. Number 2 was former Hills hottie with a clothing line of her own at Kohls with $5 million. Two of the Jersey Shore cast-mates cracked the Top 10, The Situation earned $3 million while DJ Pauly D earned $2 million.
The Highest Paid Reality TV Stars according to The Daily Beast:
What's going on after The Hills has signed off the airwaves might be better drama than what occurred during the shows airing.
Just recently Audrina Patridge's mother went on a drunken rant calling the The Hills hotties "tramps" and even more as Us reported calling Lauren Conrad a "bitch."
So with Lauren and Audrina each launching their own reality shows do they see each other as competition?
Asked Monday at the VH1 Save the Music Foundation Gala in NYC about Audrina's VH1 show, Lauren (who has her own MTV show in the works) told Us, "I think it's good for her. And no, I really don't think about it like that at all."
Asked if she had hurt feelings about Audrina's mom's rant, she told Us, "I really don't have a comment on that right now, thanks."
Of course she does, she just keeps her comments private!
Audrina Patridge will make a quick return to reality TV after being booted off Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday night and in her new show will reunite with dancing partner Tony Dovolani.
As People reported,
"My new show with [realty TV producer] Mark Burnett just got picked up," Patridge told PEOPLE backstage after her elimination. "It's going to be on VH1 and we're going to start filming soon. I'm sure Tony will be on that."
Without hesitation, Dovolani interjected, "Absolutely, Audrina's like my little sister."
The pro dancer, who is expected to open his own dance studio with costar Maksim Chmerkovskiy, will invite Patridge and her TV crews to film from his new spot. "I'll be going to Tony's new dance studio with my girlfriends and bringing the cameras," Patridge says.
We were just gonna say how much a reality show with Audrina would be another lame filler show... until she mentioned bringing her girlfriends to the dance studio! We may check this out!
