At one point in 2015, she even competed in Donald Trump’s game show, The Apprentice. Outside of reality television, the blonde has even acted on a few occasions. In 2013, she made her official acting debut in the popular series, 90210. Since then, she has appeared in a few other titles including the made-for-television film, Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens, which was released last year.

How did Brandi Glanville Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on November 16, 1972, in Salinas, California, Brandi Glanville was raised in Sacramento, with her two siblings, Tricia and Michael. Blessed with good looks, she later moved to Paris, France at the age of sixteen to pursue a modeling career. Signing to Elite Model Management, her work brought her to several cities around the world including New York, Europe, and Los Angeles. By the time she was seventeen, she was taking part in runway shows.
Fast forward to the early 2010’s and Granville landed herself a supporting role in the reality series, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. One of the most popular installment of the Bravo franchise, it centered around several ‘housewives’ in the Beverly Hills area, including Adrienne Maloof, Lisa Vanderpump, Taylor Armstrong, and Camille Grammer, among a few others.
Introduced in episode four of season two, Gossip Girls, she went on to make a handful of appearances throughout the season. Having proved herself to be popular with fans, it was eventually announced that she would be joining the cast as one of the main housewives starting from season three (alongside fellow newcomer, Yolanda Foster).
For the next three seasons, Glanville starred on the show alongside the other women. In total, she was a main cast member for three years, from 2012 to 2015. Following the end of season five, she left RHOBJ; with that said, she did return as a guest in season six.
How much did Brandi Glanville receive as part of her contract with Bravo? According to sources, the blonde reportedly made $175,000 USD per season. If we were to multiply this by three, that would work out to be well over $500,000 USD (not including her earnings as a guest from season six).
What other shows have the blonde been featured in over the years? A familiar face on television (since her debut on RHOBH anyway), she has been invited onto numerous programmings including Today, Steve Garvey, Good Work, The Real, The Doctors, and Cocktails with Khloe, to name a few. Some other highlights from her reality television career also include the shows The Apprentice, and Famously Single.
In addition to her successful career in reality TV, Glanville has also dabbled in acting. In 2013, the blonde made her official debut in an episode of 90210. Since then, she has participated in a few additional titles including Missing at 17 (2013), The Hungover Games (2014), and Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens (2016).
Outside of television, Glanville also has a few other ongoing projects. For instance, she currently hosts her own podcast called Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, in which she discusses popular culture, as well as various aspects of her life. In addition to that, she also writes a weekly column for the Australian magazine, NW.
A New York Times bestselling author, she has also written two books- Drinking and Dating, and Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders, which were published in 2014 and 2013 respectively.
With all that she has going on, it’s no wonder she has a net worth of ~$1 million!
