Daytime Emmy-winning actress Eileen Davidson has joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for next season, and the star did not come cheap.

The Days of Our Lives and Young & The Restless legend "has indeed signed on to join the cast for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," an insider says.

How much did she get to bring her star power to the Bravo series?

An astonishing $750,000, which is a record for a cast member.

Compared to the rest of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast salaries, Davidson is head and shoulders above the rest, despite her newcomer status.

How did she command that kind of cash from the producers?

Sources say the dynamics between Eileen and fellow new cast member/soap opera star Lisa Rinna will heave fans "surprised by their relationship."

The returning stars also received huge raises, it's worth noting.

Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, and Yolanda Foster will each earn a cool $500,000, while Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna will be bringing in $450,000.

Vanderpump had been earning just $250,000 a season, followed by Kyle Richards at $200,000, and her sister Kim and Foster netting $100,000 a piece.

It's unclear what Brandi Glanville, Lisa's frenemy and perhaps the biggest lightning rod on all of Bravo, earns/has earned thus far with the franchise.

I'm just shocked that either of these women will be on the show. I'm not a huge soap opera fan, and it can be argued that soaps are trash, but both of these women have substantial careers in entertainment, and are reasonably talented, so not sure why they need this show (though a $750,000 paycheck for 3 months work might convince me) :)
