After a big shakeup where multiple main cast members and those who are considered guests of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills decided to not come back for Season 11, fans didn't know what that meant for the future of the show. Luckily, Season 12 has proven that a few mainstays are still here to keep the drama going. On top of that, one of the freshest additions to the main cast — Crystal Kung Minkoff, has been making waves as a housewife.
Fans new and old by now know that Crystal is married to director and producer Rob Minkoff. It's only natural, then, for those same fans to wonder about who he is and how lucrative his career is outside of reality TV. Some women are cast on the show because their spouses are just as hungry for the reality TV fame as they are. In Crystal and Rob’s case, that doesn't seem to be true, but fans are still curious about Rob all the same. Here's what we know about Rob's net worth (and more).
So, what is Rob Minkoff's net worth?
Given Rob's profession as a movie producer and director, it makes sense that he has made quite a lot of money throughout his career. He's been in the business for the past few decades, and unlike some of the husbands on the show from the past and present, Rob has actually worked on movies you likely remember well.

Net worth: $1.4 million
Rob Minkoff is a director known for his work on The Lion King in 1994 as well as Stuart Little and Stuart Little 2. He also produced the Stuart Little TV show and the 2003 Eddie Murphy movie The Haunted Mansion. More recently, Rob has worked on The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show and the upcoming Blazing Samurai and Chinese Odyssey. He has a net worth of roughly $1.4 million, per Net Worth Post.

By adding Crystal to the cast for Season 11, 'RHOBH' finally offered fans Asian-American representation.
While Crystal’s husband has an impressive resume, the most important part about Crystal's fairly recent addition as a main cast member on the series is the Asian-American representation she brings to a show that has been mostly white-washed up until the last few years. When she was revealed to be a new housewife, fans quickly shared their excitement on Twitter and reflected on its past lackluster representation of various ethnic groups.
"Everyone is talking about Kathy Hilton; meanwhile, I'm excited that we're getting an Asian-American housewife: Crystal Kung!" One fan tweeted, adding, "Long overdue for Bravo to cast other minority ethnicities to the mix. Something tells me she's going to bring the heat."
Garcelle Beauvais also joined the cast in Season 10 as the first Black RHOBH cast member and has continued with the show ever since.
Crystal Kung Minkoff's job is pretty impressive too.
Although Rob is a well-respected TV and film producer and director, Crystal has business ventures of her own that fans are likely to see her delve into on RHOBH. She founded Real Coco, a company dedicated to making healthy snacks and drinks infused with coconut. She has also worked in movies a bit herself. She had a small role in The Forbidden Kingdom and played News Reporter #1 in Flypaper.
These days, however, the majority of Crystal’s time seems to be spent with Real Coco and, of course, the two children she shares with Rob. Being a full-time mom and entrepreneur is hard work. Though as one of the newest additions to the ever dramatic RHOBH, fans can see that her life has only gotten more and more interesting, to say the least.
