How did Gina Liano Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on May 18, 1966, in Victoria, Australia, Gina Liano grew up in suburbs of Brighton with her three siblings, two of whom work as fashion designers. As a teen, she went to Star of the Sea College, an independent day school in Melbourne, from which she graduated in 1983. Following her graduation, she went to Monash University, where she received an undergraduate degree in 1992. During that time, she also collaborated with her sisters in running a number of boutiques. From there, she eventually went back to school; she later obtained a law degree in 1996.
Having received her law degree, she started to work as a lawyer in 1997. As of 2017, she has been in the legal game for 16 years (and counting). Throughout her professional career, she has represented many high profile clients, from Hollywood celebrities and athletes.
Things weren’t all positive, however- in 2013, the brunette was diagnosed with cancer. Remaining positive in the midst of the devastating news, she underwent 12 months of chemotherapy and radiation, which successfully led her to go into remission. Having recovered from the biggest battle of her life, she re-emerged even more determined to live her life to the fullest.
Putting the ordeal behind her, she carried on with her law career for the next several years. Though she never intended to get involved with television, she was later cast in the reality series, The Real Housewives of Melbourne in 2014. An international spinoff of Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise, it chronicled the lives of several ‘housewives’ in the Melbourne area.
One of the original housewives, Liano has been on the show since the get-go. Some of her fellow co-stars include Jackie Gillies, Chyka Keebaugh, Andrea Moss, Janey Roach, and Lydia Schiavello, among others. As of 2017, she is one of four to have remained for the entire duration of the series.
Premiered on February 23, 2014, on Arena, The Real Housewives of Melbourne proved to be a success, upon its debut in Australia. Responsible for her rise to fame, it has receives a handful of accolades including an ASTRA Award nomination and a Screen Producers Australia Award nomination. Currently, on its fourth season, the series continues to be a hit on television, where it regularly draws in hundreds of thousands of viewers tuning in every week.
Just recently, it was announced that the brunette would be receiving her spin-off titled, Judge Gina, though an official release date has not yet been revealed.
How much is she paid for starring on The Real Housewives of Melbourne? Surely, as a spinoff of one of the most popular reality series in the U.S., the pay is decent? Unfortunately, as much as we’d like to know, there has been no word on how much the reality stars are paid. Having said that, it would probably be fair to assume that it’s similar to what the cast of The Real Housewives of Sydney makes, that is- around $70,000 AU (approximately $53,000 USD) per season, as they are produced by the same company.
Since her debut on RHOM, Liano has appeared in a couple of additional shows including Have You Been Paying Attention? and The Celebrity Apprentice Australia, both of which have presumably helped to increase her presence.
Speaking of television, she has also dabbled in acting. In April 2015, she was cast as Mary Smith, a recurring character in the Australian soap opera, Neighbours. Hired after impressing the casting directors during a screen test, she made a handful of appearances on the show between 2015 and 2016. Her first screen appearance, according to Wikipedia, was on June 30, 2015. Obviously, this acting gig would have provided her some additional funds.
What other projects has she been a part of? Aside from her law and television career, she recently also launched her shoe line. On top of that, it’s said that she’s also currently working on a perfume collection. Oh, and let’s not forget about the autobiography that she released in 2015.
