6 Richest Miami Housewives and Their Very Lavish Lifestyles

6: Adriana de Moura

Background

Adriana de Moura was born on November 26, 1965, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Her family struggled when she was young, yet Adriana persevered. She moved to Paris and studied French art and civilization at the Sorbonne University, earning a Bachelor's in Communication Studies. Art became her passion, and pursuing it has taken her to over 50 countries, becoming fluent in five languages. 

Claim to Fame

Adriana de Moura has always turned heads wherever she's gone and certainly made a name for herself in the art world as an expert art dealer, but her more global renown came following her appearance on the reality show The Real Housewives of Miami. Interestingly, Adriana de Moura wasn't exactly the richest housewife in Miami on the show, but rather the richest fiance. At least for most of her appearances on the show, as she didn't marry her then-fiance Frederic Marq until after a long period on the show. 

Wealth & Income Sources

Adriana de Moura is estimated to have a net worth of $10 million. Her appearance in more than 40 episodes of The Real Housewives of Miami helped develop a significant portion of her income and wealth as she earned an average of about $75,000 for every season of the series she was on. She has also gone on to earn money from other speaking engagements and entertainment positions.

However, Adriana de Moura has also earned a good fortune through her entrepreneurial endeavors, specifically her work as an art gallery owner and expert art dealer. She has also enjoyed a steady sidestream of income from modeling and was commonly seen at the height of her modeling career gracing the runways of the most renowned fashion events.  

Real Estate

Adriana de Moura has made several smart real estate investments in Miami and beyond. She recently listed a Spanish-styled Miami home for a cool $5 million. 

Philanthropy

Adriana de Moura proudly proclaims herself to be a philanthropist and is often seen supporting a variety of charities. Of particular importance to her is the Angles for Humanity non-profit, which is an organization that aids children born in poverty, much as she was, via health and educational assistance and outreach. 

5: Marysol Christina Patton

Background

Marysol Patton is a true Miami native, having been born on January 9, 1967, in Miami, Florida to Elsa and Don Patton. Her father was a well-known and well-respected yacht builder who frequently brought his wife and daughter with him when meeting with customers around the world. Marysol thus, from a very early age, was exposed to an upscale, adventurous world and its many different cultures. She saw how to run a luxury business and relate to upscale clients. These were invaluable life lessons that would later help her luxury business excel. 

Claim to Fame

This richest Miami housewife made an early name for herself via her company, The Patton Group. The Patton Group was a Public Relations and Events Agency that catered to the ultra-rich and ultra-influential, working with most of Miami's top brands and personalities as well as boasting several international clients. The Patton Group is where Marysol Patton made the bulk of her wealth and fame, but it isn't her only claim to fame. Marysol Patton also appeared as a cast member of The Richest Housewives of Miami as the wife of Steve McNamara, president of Anzac Contractors. 

Wealth & Income Sources

As of 2023, Marysol Patton is estimated to be worth $15 million. Most of her wealth came from her success with The Patton Group.

Wealth & Income Sources
