In the midst of the continuing Hollywood strikes, one of the stars of a prominent US television program revealed the horrifying reality about her pitiful pay.
Brittany Cartwright claims that despite being prominently featured in season four of Vanderpump Rules, her bank account in no way reflected it.
The Kentucky-born Bravolebrity joined the cast of the popular reality series in 2015 and remained there until 2020, according to Page Six.
“I wasn’t paid at the very, very last episode of my first season of Vanderpump Rules. I was in financial trouble, the 34-year-old admitted on her podcast When Reality Hits on Friday with husband Jax Taylor. “I was very exhausted by it.”
The 2019 newlyweds talked openly about the amount of money they spent at the beginning of their relationship.
Taylor, 44, claimed that because of Brittany’s relocation from Kentucky to Los Angeles as a result of financial difficulties, their long-distance relationship had become an ongoing travel expenditure.
“It’s was costing her,” he said. “This is the beginning of the show, and it was costing her $800 to $900 ($A1240 to $A1390).”
“She was was in Kentucky [working at a bar and Hooters], and $800 is a lot of money [to spend on airfare].”
“It was like three months in,” Brittany added. “I was traveling back and forth to visit you since I had to go to work. I would see you the following week after a week at work. It lasted around two months.
The couple’s remarks are similar to those made by their co-star Kristen Doute, who recently disclosed how little money she made for the show’s first season.
The 40-year-old remarked on July 27 that there wasn’t much money in the bank. “It was $5,000 ($A7738) and we received an additional $5,000 if we won the primary.”
The news coincides with a report from Deadline that all three of the former Vanderpump Rules cast members are working on a spin-off for Bravo.
