provided a ball-park estimate of reality star incomes, including Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag from MTV’s series The Hills:
Well, Lauren “L.C.” Conrad does get to operate ongoing hot war with Heidi Montag in the pages of Us Weekly every week, free of charge. If that’s not a fine compensation, I don’t know what is. Oh, wait. Yes, I do. How about an estimated $10,000 to $25,000 per episode? That’s the general industry range for top reality stars such as Conrad, Montag, wannabe K-Fed or Spencer Pratt.
Lauren Conrad makes ten to fifteen grand for sipping lattes, talking on her phone and teaching teenage girls how to butcher the English language. I, on the other hand, receive no compensation for being so unbelievably sexy that my looks actually fight cancer. There is no God.
