Max Boyens claims he was paid “little to nothing” for Vanderpump Rules

Max Boyens out of Vanderpump Rules claimed he was only paid a few thousand dollars to film the eighth season of the Emmy-nominated series.

“They paid me little to nothing. As a new cast member, you don’t get episodic pay,” he said Us weekly. “You don’t get paid per episode; it is only a flat rate. It’s not much at all; you just get along with it.”

“It was $4,000 [or] something… and they pay you in instalments, too.”

Angry. A check like that is TERRIBLE. And especially considering the cost of living in California, I think that’s just embarrassing. Maybe Bethenny Frankel, Rachel Leviss and Hannah Berner were right — the networks actually berate the reality stars.

As you know, Bethenny has spent the last few weeks rallying the “reality losers” and trying to form a union. She wants better pay, a residual wage and the complete abolition of the “Bethenny Clause”.

It’s tough for the VPR crew

It’s shocking to hear how much the stars of VPR made for their first season of shooting. And if you treat yourself to new models every week, the $4,000 can be gone quickly.

“It was tough because I spent a lot of money. I had to buy a lot of clothes because I don’t want to wear the same damn clothes every episode,” he said. “I spend all the money on new clothes that I have to fly to places with [the cast]and I spend money when it’s my turn to buy drinks for everyone.”

Despite the lack of money, Max was still able to enjoy some evenings thanks to his co-stars.

“It wasn’t a problem [a check] covered [by someone else] Sometimes. Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval have always been very cool in that regard. Especially Scheana Shay too.”

The good thing for Max is that since he was fired from the show in 2020 for his past racist tweets, no network has thought to give him a call. Luckily, he won’t have to pay any more unbelievably low salaries. Bottom up!
