With reality stars earning exorbitant per-episode salaries (Kate Gosselin earns a reported $250,000 per episode of Kate Plus 8), it’s no wonder they’re cruising around in some pretty spectacular vehicles (with camera crews in tow).

As a whole, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan makes the flashiest statement. Kim Kardashian rotates between a Bentley Continental CT convertible, a gray Ferrari F 430 (with after-market tires), a white Range Rover and a white Rolls Royce Ghost. Sister Khloe usually tools around in her white Range Rover, but both she and brother Rob have been snapped by paparazzi getting into Porsche Panameras. Oldest sister Kourtney and mom Kris Jenner both cruise around Calabasas in Mercedes Benzes, while Kourtney’s baby daddy, Scott Disick, goes ultra-flashy in a Rolls Royce Drophead Coupe.

Fellow E! star Holly Madison of Holly’s World had her Porsche 911 painted pink (fitting for Las Vegas) and former co-star/fellow playmate and current star of Kendra, Kendra Wilkinson, drives a Lexus IS and her hubby Hank Baskett rolls in a black Range Rover. Other reality stars hitting the road in a Range Rover: American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, Celebrity Rehab’s Janice Dickinson and Dancing with the Stars’ Maksim Chmerkovskiy. He also has a white Mercedes Benz SL500.       

Evelyn Lozada of Basketball Wives used to drive a Range Rover that ex-fiance Antoine Walker bought her, but she traded that in for a new silver Porsche Panamera. And fellow sport spouse, Amanda Davis of Football Wives, has a blinged out Freightliner SportChassis, which is like a semi truck without a haul.

Also ostentatious is Paris Hilton (of Paris Hilton’s My New BFF), who recently traded in her pink Bentley for a Rolls Royce Ghost, and also teases the paparazzi in a Cadillac Escalade Hybrid. The equally extravagant Kimora Lee from Life in the Fab Lane used to have an Escalade to chauffeur her around New York City, but when she’s in L.A., she drives herself in a cobalt blue Ferrari.

Another fashionista with a fabulous set of wheels is the star of The Rachel Zoe Project, Rachel Zoe, whose husband, Rodger Berman, bought her a vintage Porsche 356 Speedster convertible for their 10th wedding anniversary.

But there’s also other end of the style spectrum, where we have Billy Bretherton, known as Billy the Exterminator, who drives a Toyota Tundra pickup when he’s called out for a job.

And what about Ms. Moneybags Gosselin? She drives a black Toyota Land Cruiser around Redding, PA.
