Bravo-lebrity: Adrienne Maloof from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Business: Maloof Cos.

Post-Bravo: Maloof is now a more recognizable face of the portfolio. “I was always involved, but behind the scenes,” she says. And her first collection of high heels launches next month.

Bravo-lebrity: Chantal Chadwick from Gallery Girls

Business: End of Century gallery and boutique

Post-Bravo: The company’s monthly expenses are a little less painful. “We get lots of tourists,” Chadwick says. “And our online business has gone up a ton. It’s insane the amounts of people you’re reaching.”

Bravo-lebrity: Caroline Manzo from The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Business: The Brownstone event facility

Post-Bravo: The Manzos today sell three signature sauces — vodka, marinara, and tomato basil — by the bottle. “The sauce gives us a chance to reach people everywhere,” says Manzo.

Bravo-lebrity: Jill Zarin from The Real Housewives of New York City

Business: Zarin Fabrics

Post-Bravo: Housewives made Zarin Fabrics “a worldwide brand,” says Zarin. The store’s online business also grew, perhaps because “Jill Zarin” has its own tab on the home page.
