The top four stars of the show were all given a raise of $5,000 per episode, which amounts to a whopping $80,000 raise, as they cashed in on the drama following Thomas Ravenel’s departure.

The upcoming “do or die” season sees the show securing Kathryn Dennis, Cameran Eubanks, Shep Rose and Craig Conover for $480,000 for the 16 episode season, the source told Radar.

Their insider claimed that producers of the hit show warned the cast about the strings tied to their raises.

“Season 7 is a do or die season for the show, they have to deliver,” the source said the stars were told.

The new season’s filming was delayed until January 2020, as previously reported, as producers searched for fresh faces to fill the void left by Ravenel’s firing.

“Without Thomas they need the drama to come back.”

Thomas, 57, left the show after he was hit with allegations of sexual assault.

“Thomas’ cousin, Lee Ravenel, was approached to be on the show, but he declined,” the source added.

The cash boost for the stars is an incentive to create new drama.
