What do you do when you’ve already made your first million? Well according to the women from Bravo’s hit reality television show ‘The Real Housewives’, you go out and make more of course! At one point or another, the housewives ranging from Atlanta to Melbourne have tried their hand at creating a business.

Snobby Diva picked the five most relevant (and useful) ventures the housewives have made for your use.
This New York City Housewife has been noted to have the most successful business venture in the history of Housewives. Frankel’s Skinnygirl Cocktails was founded in 2009 and acquired by Beam Inc., a premium spirits powerhouse, in March of 2011. Since then, the ready-to-drink cocktail line greatly expanded its offerings from margaritas to wines and vodkas with natural flavors. The selling point? All of them are low calorie so drink (responsibly) to your heart’s content without worrying about the calorie count.
Being that her husband Dr. Terry Dubrow is a world renowned plastic surgeon and stars on E!’s hit show “Botched”, it’s no surprise that Orange County Housewife Heather Dubrow created a skincare line.
