Vanderpump Rules aired part one of its absolutely unhinged reunion on Wednesday night, an hour of our lives best described as peak reality TV. And on top of more drama than anyone was emotionally prepared for, Ariana Madixwent ahead and revealed how much merch she’s sold since Scandoval.
In response to host Andy Cohen asking Ariana and Katie Maloney how much they’ve sold in merch for their upcoming sandwich shop, Something About Her, Katie said “Well, it’s about $200,000,” which Ariana confirmed with a “two-hundred thousand.”
Katie added that “It’s really incredible that so many supportive people showed up to, like, help us,” while Ariana explained, “We were always going to do merch in the shop, and we thought that was something we would do, like down the road… But then people were saying ‘How can we support you?’ And so we launched it early.”
Keep in mind that the VPR reunion was filmed in March, and it’s currently the end of May…so, gonna assume that $200,000 has grown exponentially.
We have a full breakdown of Ariana’s net worth over here, but if you’re curious about her Vanderpump Rules salary, a couple things to note: according to the Hollywood Reporter, the cast went through negotiations in 2017 and 2018 and secured $25,000 per episode. However, they’re actually in contract negotiations again right now, and it seems likely that Ariana will be able to secure herself a raise considering her personal life just earned Bravo its series-ratings high!ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
