Jill Dillard Net Worth

Jill Dillard Net Worth

Jill Dillard is one of the Duggar family sisters. If you follow the show, then you know she spent many years on TV with her family. However, she doesn’t have an extremely high net worth. How does she earn her money? And what is Jill Dillard Net Worth?

Who Is Jill Dillard?

The Duggar family is a huge family. They began appearing in television documentaries when there were fourteen kids, eventually becoming popular for a reality show that ultimately ended up called “19 and Counting.” In our article about Jessa Seewald, one of the family’s 19 children, we shared a link to the Duggar family tree. Therefore, we won’t recap it all here.

As you can see there, Jessa’s sister Jill, born in 1991, is the second-oldest of the Duggar girls, born just before Jessa. They have a couple older brothers and a whole slew of younger brothers and sisters.

Jill’s Family

In addition to her family origin, of course, she also now has her own family. Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard in 2014, thus the name change. In April 2015, they had their first child, Israel. About two years later, they had their second son, Samuel. They’re expecting their third son in July 2022.

It’s been a rough couple of years for the little family in some ways. In fall last year, they experienced a miscarriage of their child River Bliss. So, while the pregnancy is exciting, it’s probably also been a little bit scary. It probably doesn’t help that the 30-year-old mom and her hubby both tested positive for COVID-19 during the pregnancy.

Josh Dillard Trial

Of course, if you follow the Duggar family celebrity news, then you know that Jill’s also had to cope with the situation surrounding brother Josh’s criminal behavior. As we shared in our post about Jessa, she and Jill were the first two of four sisters to come forward and share that Josh had molested them when they were younger.

They came forward in 2015, but the process has been a long one. At first, they wanted to just put it behind them. Two years later, they sued the city and others for causing so much emotional distress to them regarding the situation. In 2021, they finally went to trial against Josh himself for their distress. Meanwhile, Josh was convicted for other criminal charges related to possession of child “pornography” (child sex abuse materials).

Jill Dillard Coming Forth About Josh Duggar

Recently, as all of the information about Josh has been coming out, rumors have surfaced that Jill might have actually revealed the abuse to her parents as early as 2003. For example, in a 2014 episode of the family show discussing Jill’s upcoming marriage, Josh makes a comment about how Jill is a tattle tale to their parents. Looking back, people now wonder if he’s referring to her telling them about the molestation.

Furthermore, a family friend speaking on the stand at Josh’s trial, says that Josh revealed he’d been caught by a sibling in the act. She hit him and “ran to their parents.” People suspect they’re referring to Jill, although he hasn’t confirmed this. Regardless, Jill has separated a lot from her family over the years. Like many of her siblings, she chose to eave the primary show about the Duggar family.

Jill Dillard Net Worth and Career

Surely, Jill Dillard earned some money from her appearances on “19 and Counting” (and the earlier iterations of the show.) Of course, we don’t know the family dynamics around money earned before the kids turned 18.

Although Jill left the family show, she was a main cast character in the spinoff show “Counting On.” The spinoff stars several of the siblings; the earliest episodes were almost exclusively about Jill and Jessa and their families. In fact, there’s some overlap between the two shows: “Counting On” started in 2017 and Jill didn’t entirely leave “19 and Counting” until 2017.

In 2014, the two girls teamed up with their sisters Jana and Jinger to co-author a book called “Growing Up Duggar.” The book did well, so some Jill Dillard net worth surely comes from those sales, as well.

Jill Dillard, Midwife

In 2015, Jill Dillard became a Certified Professional Midwife. That same year, she and her small family spent ten months in Central America doing missionary work, where she presumably put some of her training to use to help others. However, this was likely volunteer work.

Moreover, her related work in the United States came into question and thus was short-lived. A Redbook article explains that when she was in training, her midwife mentor was found responsible for problems in a client’s birth. Her license was revoked. Although Jill did her her CPM, the article explains that this is different from (and much easier to get) than a Certified Nursing Midwife license. Regardless, according to that article, Jill stopped working as a midwife.

Dillard Family Blog

Jill Dillard has over 1.7 million Instagram followers. They also have the Dillard Family Blog website. They share recipes, photos, family updates and more. The website is ad-supported, so some of Jill Dillard net worth comes from those efforts as well. Additionally, they have a Dillard Family Official Youtube, which has over 100K followers and more than nine million views.

Financial Challenges

A family blog post celebrates husband Derick’s graduation from law school. Therefore, the family’s overall net worth will presumably come from his work as a lawyer in the years to come. He worked at various law jobs while attending school. However, law school is expensive, so we aren’t sure where this leaves their finances at the current time.

And the family’s financial challenges didn’t start there. The List explains that Derick has been very open, with Jill’s support, about how hard the larger Duggar family’s financial choices have been on their growing family. The couple feels like they were prevented from taking advantage of opportunities that could have forwarded them financially. There also seems to have been some argument over Jill’s money from her time on the family’s show.

What Is Jill Dillard Net Worth?

The List and other sources generally place Jill Dillard net worth at approximately $400,000 – $500,000. The larger Duggar family’s net worth is about $4 million. However, when you divide that up between all those kids, it doesn’t really amount to so much. Wealthy Genius says that she probably earned somewhere between $25,000 to $75,000 per episode on average for the years that she was on the show. Of course, that’s still nothing to sneeze at.

’90 Day Fiance’ Louis & Aya Gattone Net Worth

'90 Day Fiance' Louis & Aya Gattone net worth

Most reality television celebrity couples don’t make it. When you’re talking about a show like “90 Day Fiance,” the chances of staying together in a happy coupledom seem slim. However, some do make it. And fans love those stories. So, of course, fans love Louis & Aya Gattone who were on the very first season of the show and are still together. They obviously didn’t make most of their money from the show, since it was just a season of work. So how do they earn their money. And what is ’90 Day Fiance’ Louis & Aya Gattone net worth?

What Is 90 Day Fiance?

If you’re not familiar with the show, it’s a reality television show all about relationships. Specifically, one person lives in the United States and the other lives in a different country. They have fallen in love, sometimes having met in person during travels and other times only knowing each other online. They want to get married, and live together, which means that they have to apply for the K1 visa or Fiance Visa. They have 90 days to get married after the person who isn’t a resident of the US arrives in the country. Hence, the title. The show follows their struggles as they try to develop their marriage in such a pressure cooker.

Who Are ’90 Day Fiance’ Louis & Aya Gattone?

Louis and Aya Gattone are one of the original couples from the earliest seasons of the show. In fact, they are among the few original 90 Day Fiance couples who are still married. ScreenRant breaks down their relationship timeline:

Louis and Aya met online through an international dating service. Aya is from the Philippines, and she really would have loved to remain there. However, she didn’t have any children, yet. Louis, on the other hand, had two young children from a previous marriage. He didn’t want to move to another country and leave them behind. Therefore, they decided that Aya would moved to the United States. They sharing this process on the first season of 90 Day Fiance in 2014.

Like any couple under such pressure, they had their challenges. However, they decided to go ahead with the quick marriage. In 2018, they had their first child together, a son named Giovanni. Two years later, they had their second son, Stefano. They are still reportedly happily married n 2022.

Where Does ’90 Day Fiance’ Louis & Aya Gattone Net Worth Come From?

Many “90 Day Fiance” couples leverage their appearances on the show to earn money through continued television appearances. In fact, there are several 90 Day Fiance spinoff shows. Some are entire shows devoted to one couple’s journey. Some are “Pillow Talk” series in which past couples watch the current season and provide commentary. These couples obviously continue to earn money from their appearances.

However, Louis and Aya opted not to go that route. They appeared on the first season of the show and then began to quietly fade back into a private life without the cameras around. Unlike many of the other people on the show (couples as well as those who have not stayed together), they didn’t go the route of becoming influencers either. So, then, how do they earn money? Where does ’90 Day Fiance’ Louis & Aya Gattone net worth come from?

Rustic Charm by Design

If you head to Louis’ Instagram account, where he has fewer than 2500 followers, you might see a post advertising their business account: Rustic Charm By Design. This Instagram account only has 21 followers as of April 2022. However, the link in the bio leads you to their business website. Here they sell “Handcrafted Jewelry and Woodwork Crafted For Your Style.”

The website says that both Louis and Aya are creative individuals who decided to work together to launch handcrafted wood items. They range from earrings to Adirondack chairs but are all tied together by two themes: rustic charm and being “designed to fit the space and style of whoever owns it.” So, it’s unclear how much of ’90 Day Fiance’ Louis & Aya Gattone net worth comes from this endeavor, but it seems to be a business that they put a lot of love into.

Louis Gattone’s Career

Louis’s Instagram account also links to a blog that he updates sporadically, mostly with stuff about his coaching experience and workouts, but also sometimes with other aspects of life. In April 2019, he shared that life was very busy. Their first baby was not quite one year old, and he had a lot on his plate. Through this post, we learn a little bit about his work.

As if then, he was working a full-time job, a second part-time job, and attending school for his Bachelor’s Degree. He notes that his company reimburses the cost of his education. He doesn’t say here what these jobs are. However, a post over on The Ivy Tech Blog reveals more. There we learn that he went back to school in his mid-thirties in order to get a degree in Cyber Security and Information Assurance. That post says that he graduated in late 2017, so there’s some discrepancy between the dates.

It looks like perhaps the 2019 post was a repost at a later date, as the information is similar between the two. In the latter post, it says that he had a full-time job as a warehouse manager and a part-time internship at a cyber security company while he was in school. In both posts, he emphasizes that he couldn’t do it without Aya. She takes care of the house and kids while he works and attends school.

What Is ’90 Day Fiance’ Louis & Aya Gattone Net Worth?

Unfortunately, we can’t find specific information about ’90 Day Fiance’ Louis & Aya Gattone net worth. However, Louis has a LinkedIn profile. It says that he works as a Senior OT/IoT Cybersecurity Consultant for EY. A review of the EY job search site reveals that they claim to offer competitive pay. If you head over to Glassdoor, you’ll see that the average Cybersecurity Consultant salary is $87,456 while the average earnings per year (presumably including bonuses) is $109,387. Since his job paid for his education, he presumably doesn’t have any student debt. They live in an average-priced area. Therefore, they have average American net worth.

Chelsea Houska Net Worth

Chelsea Houska Net Worth

Chelsea DeBoer Houska is one of the original “Teen Moms” on the reality television show of the same name. In fact, she started on the show when it was “16 and Pregnant.” Then she went on to share her life through the series for years. Recently, she chose not to return to the “Teen Mom” show. She’s leveraged her celebrity status for enough success that she doesn’t need to film anymore to make a living. So, how does she make her money, and what is Chelsea Houska Net Worth?

Who is Chelsea DeBoer Houska?

Fans of “Teen Mom” have had the opportunity to watch Chelsea Houska grow up on television. She was a teenager when she and her then-boyfriend got pregnant with her first daughter, Aubree. This, obviously, was the premise of the “16 and Pregnant” show. The television series took off and became “Teen Mom.” We’ve watched Chelsea grow from her teenage self into a mom with a great marriage, several children, and a lot of business sense. In fact, she’s one of the ten richest Teen Mom stars.

Chelsea, Teen Mom

Teen Mom’s Fandom page explains that Chelsea became pregnant with her daughter, Aubrey Skye, when she was a senior in high school in a small town in South Dakota. She was an athletic softball player for her high school but dropped out in her senior year when, on the first day of school, she went into labor early. She eventually got her GED and enrolled in cosmetology school.

In the early seasons, we see Chelsea struggle with the responsibility of being a Teen Mom. Aubree’s father Adam is in and out of the picture. We see Chelsea’s supportive father Randy constantly frustrated by Adam’s shenanigans. Over the years, Adam will continue to be in and out of his daughter’s life. Chelsea will eventually cut ties with him, although she’ll do her best to keep him involved as a father, despite his seeming lack of effort.

Chelsea and Cole, Parents

Fans of Teen Mom love to hate Adam and love to love Cole DeBoer, the man that Chelsea ends up marrying. They started dating in 2014. By season six of Teen Mom, we see them move in together, still in North Dakota. They married in October 2016. Immediately, he becomes an amazing father figure (and eventually let’s just say father) to Aubree. There are touching scenes of him attending her father-daughter dances with her over the years.

Although Chelsea didn’t plan to be a teen mom, she did want a big family. In addition to Aubree, she and Cole are parents to a son named Watson and two daughters named Layne and Walker.

Chelsea, Business Woman

After getting her GED, Chelsea went on to cosmetology school. As she grew into her adult self, she also became interested in business. She and Cole worked together to start a clothing line. She has gone on to do a lot of working in the fashion industry. At the same time, she grew her skills as a social media influencer. She has 6.5 million Instagram followers, for example.

Bella & Rae Co.

Chelsea has developed a few different businesses over time. For example, she’s a co-owner of Bella & Rae Co. The company began when co-founder Laurie teamed up with co-founder/photographer Calli to promote her businesses. Chelsea joined them in 2019 to round out the company with an influencer. Basically, they work together to create amazing photos for social media. They have designed preset photography packages to help others do the same. That’s what this company is all about.

Itzy Ritzy

This is the aforementioned fashion business that she and Cole worked on together. It’s changed over time. Right now you can find it on Amazon. The Chelsea and Cole Collection for the brand is a line of products for parents including stylish diaper bags and packing cubes.

Aubree Says

This seems to be Chelsea’s big passion project. On the website, she shares how what she’s always wanted most was a happy family in a cozy home. The business sells products designed to make the home cozy. Her “limited edition line of home goods” includes art prints, blankets, table runners, candles, mugs, and cozy accessories like beanies and slippers.

Chelsea and Cole on HGTV

The couple is working together in the home decor and design sector. For example, check out the Instagram account “Down Home DeBoers.” They share a variety of inspo photos of their South Dakota Farmhouse home for over 700,000 followers. This is the dream home that they’ve built together, using his construction skills and her eye for design.

Most recently, they’ve signed on for a new reality TV show (after leaving “Teen Mom” for good.) This one is on HGTV, it’s called Farmhouse Fabulous, and it’s a documentary-style show depicting their new business in the home design sector. They loved working on their home so much that they want to do the same thing for clients. So, some of the Chelsea Houska net worth will come from the business itself and some from the filming of the business for HGTV.

What Is Chelsea Houska Net Worth?

According to the list of richest “Teen Mom” stars, as well as other sources, Chelsea Houska net worth is about $2 million. Approximately half of that reportedly comes from her earnings on “Teen Mom.” The rest, obviously, comes from her various business and influencer endeavors.

However, there’s a lot of debate around her net worth. Some sources cite it as low as $60,000 in 2021 and $200,000 in 2022. We expect it’s higher than that, probably closer to the low millions cited on the other sites.

One potential cause of the confusion is that she’s currently dealing with a $3 million lawsuit. Consulting Company Envy alleges that she and Cole owe them that amount for failure to pay out money related to a collaboration. Basically, Envy provided consulting services over a period of four years. Part of the contract was that Chelsea and Cole would give them a certain percentage of royalties earned from various related deals. Envy says they haven’t been paid. However, the couple argues that actually Envy owes them money and they’ve filed a countersuit. They’re working on a settlement.

Bethenny Frankel Net Worth

Bethenny Frankel Net Worth

At this point, there are so many “Real Housewives” that it’s hard to keep up with all of them unless you’re one of the most dedicated fans. However, a few of these women stand out as particularly well-known. Bethenny Frankel is one of those women. She’s a self-made millionaire with multiple business pursuits and an active lifestyle. So, what is Bethenny Frankel net worth?

Who Is Bethenny Frankel?

Bethenny Frankel is most widely known as one of the first women on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” She began the show in 2008 when it premiered. She continued as a primary cast member for eight seasons over the years, although she left for a time and returned later. However, this actually wasn’t the first show that she was on. Three years prior to the show’s premiere, she was the runner-up on “The Apprentice:Martha Stewart.” That tells us a lot about her because she’s as much a business woman as she is a reality TV star.

Bethenny Frankel’s Younger Years

She was born in 1970, making her just over 50 years old today. She always wanted to be an actress, so she moved to Los Angeles when she was in her early twenties. However, she earned less through acting and more through her work for famous people. She served as a personal assistant to Jerry and Linda Bruckheimer and as nanny to Paris Hilton. She also took on set work. For example, she was a production assistant on “Saved By The Bell.”

Bethenny Frankel’s Television Career

As aforementioned, Frankel was the runner-up on the Martha Stewart version of “The Apprentice” in 2005. In 2008, she started appearing in “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Her popularity on that series led to several spinoffs including “Bethenny Every After” and “Bethenny & Fredrik”. For a couple of years, she had her own daytime talk show, simply called “Bethenny.” Most recently she starred in reality TV show “The Big Shot with Bethenny.” This is another business-themed reality competition show.

Bethenny Frankel’s Businesses

As you can see, she’s all about business. In fact, according to her website, this latter show is part of a “multi-year deal with MGM Television and Mark Burnett to generate unscripted television projects that she will produce.” She has her own business called B Real Productions through which she’s doing this work.

Early Businesses

As soon as she got to LA, she started building up her network of connections. She also started forming businesses. Her early businesses included:

  • A party-planning business called In Any Event
  • A resale clothing business
  • BethennyBakes for healthy cookies and meal delivery

Skinnygirl

If you’re a fan of “Real Housewives of New York City,” then you already know that she’s the founder of Skinnygirl. She promoted this widely on the show. At the time, the brand was known for its “skinny” cocktails. However, she sold off the cocktail portion of the business. She kept the rest of the brand, though.

It’s a lifestyle brand for women featuring “skinny” foods like popcorn and salad dressings, as well as supplements, clothing, eyewear, and kitchen accessories. When she first launched the brand’s jeans on HSN, they all sold out within just a couple of hours. She’s clearly got a good head for business.

Just B Podcast

A couple of years ago, she started a podcast called Just B, which is all about being a businesswoman. As soon as it launched in fall 2020, it started topping all of the podcast charts. She shares her own thoughts about business (and life). She also interviews others in various industries.

Brand New Book by Bethenny Frankel

Most recently, she completed a book project called “Business is Personal: The Truth About What It Takes To Be Successful While Staying True to Yourself.” This book has a May 2022 release date. Of course, people expect it to top the charts as soon as it comes out, just like her podcast did.

Note that this isn’t her only book. She released several books related to the Skinnygirl line including a self-help book, a recipe book, and even a novel called “Skinnydipping.”

Charity Work

Also notable is the charitable arm of her business, which she calls BStrong. They give emergency assistance to people inc crisis all around the world. At this time, they’re helping in Ukraine. The Teal Mango reports they’ve given $20 million to this effort. Past assistance has included those affected by tornadoes, fires, and other disasters.

Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, USA on September 12, 2010.

Bethenny Frankel’s Personal Life

Of course, reality TV stars’ personal lives aren’t very separate from their business lives. We saw her life play out on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Then, she had her spin-off shows. The first one, “Bethenny Ever After,” was a reality show about her engagement and marriage to Jason Hoppy. The show’s premiere was Bravo channel’s highest-rated premiere at the time. The show documents their early relationship including their daughter Bryn’s birth.

This wasn’t her first marriage. She was married to entertainment executive Peter Sussman for less than two years in the 1990s, a choice she openly regrets. It’s also not likely her last marriage. She and Hoppy separated in 2012, although it took another nine years to finalize their divorce. She is currently engaged to film producer Paul Bernon.

What Is Bethenny Frankel Net Worth?

Obviously, most of the “Real Housewives” have a large net worth. The main point of the show is to let viewers glimpse into the lives of rich women. However, because of her smart business sense, the Bethenny Frankel net worth might be higher than many of the others. She has over 2.5 million Instagram followers for her primary account alone.

Celebrity Net Worth explains that Bethenny Frankel net worth comes in large part from her sale of Skinnygirl Cocktails, rumored to be between $39 million and $64 million, with additional incentives related to its future growth. However, her net worth also comes from all of her other businesses as well as her real estate sales, of which there have been several multi-million dollar homes over the years. They place her net worth at about $80 million.

Fun fact: She’s been on the cover of “Forbes” magazine. Moreover, she’s made their list of “Highest-Paid Women in Entertainment.”
