In today’s ‘In Case You Missed It’, we take a look back at the fierce women on the cast of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ and their net worths. You may be surprised when you find out who’s the wealthiest. Enjoy!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey are perhaps some of the toughest wives on television. Not one of these ladies will stand for any drama. The women on this show are extremely loyal to one another. Perhaps it’s because a lot of them are actually related!
The family and friend dynamics on this franchise always keep things interesting. There is never a shortage of drama for the New Jersey women.
Another thing they never seem to be short of is trying to show each other up. All of the women on this show continue to amaze viewers with their wealth.

Although some of the women have had their fair share of financial trouble – they always seem to come out on top.
From least to greatest – here are New Jersey housewives net worths that are worth mentioning.

Even though she’s no longer a regular on the show, Jacquline Laurita was part of the franchise for five seasons.
Ultimately, she decided to leave the show due to an issue with the network. During her time though, viewers were able to take part in her emotional journey.
Jacquline’s last season on the show featured the current adversity she was facing. Neither problem was a small one.
This Mom of three’s youngest son was diagnosed with autism.
Jacquline and her husband, Chris, did everything in their power to help their son.

In addition to facing daily challenges with Nicholas, the Laurita family also starting having financial problems.
They lost a majority of their fortune, which of course greatly impacted their net worth.
The couple has a new business venture though that is helping them to rebuild their bank account.

Their new company is called The Little Kernel, and it is a popcorn company. Cute name, right?
As of now, Jacquline is estimated to be worth $500,000 dollars. That’s really not bad at all after losing basically everything.
Melissa Gorga joined the New Jersey Housewives cast during the third season of the show. When she joined, a majority of her storyline consisted of her battle with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice.

Since then, the two have resolved the family drama between them and are now tighter than ever.

Melissa never allowed herself to fall into Teresa’s shadow, though. It’s not surprising that she quickly established her own identity on the show.
Between her singing career and a new business venture, Melissa has been busy. Much to her husband’s dismay, Melissa opened up her own store called Envy by Melissa Gorga.
Envy does not majorly contribute to her overall $1.5 million dollar net worth, but we’re sure it helps a little!
Most of the money Melissa does have comes from Joe, her husband, who is a successful real estate developer.

Now in her second season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dolores Catania has become a favorite amongst fans. She tells it like it is, and has no time for women who are going to be catty.
For the most part, if the drama doesn’t involve her she stays right out of it and minds her own business.

We can’t really blame her for that. Anyway, Dolores is a busy woman. Not only is she a single mother of two, but she is also is the mama of four rescue dogs.
She’s quick to tell everyone that her rescue dogs actually rescued her and she’s completely obsessed with them. They’re totally adorable!
Before opening up her two gyms, Powerhouse Fitness Centers, Dolores spent time working as a corrections officer and they changed careers to be a real estate agent.
There is no doubt that she earned every penny of her $3.5 million dollar net worth.
Dina Manzo is the youngest in the Manzo clan. Her and sister, Caroline, were both members of the first two seasons of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Dina then decided to take a break, but then rejoined the wives for only season six. She left the show entirely after that due to relocating to California.
