Did Angel Basketball Wives Make Angel Brinks a Millionaire?
During it’s last season Basketball Wives LA and the entire franchise was literally on the “brink” of going off air. But it was season 5 that gave VH1 another opportunity to look at keeping the show running. Although that was the last season for LA, the Basketball Wives franchise still lives on. But we can thank Angel Brinks partially for keeping the show alive with her story line. She was one of the few cast members that actually had a legit hustle and business going. With millions of viewers per week Angel’s fashion line started to draw interest from celebrity females.
Her salary, according to sources, was nothing to brag about. She was only earning $50,000 during season 5. But she knew the show could bring her a plethora of other opportunities. While some reality stars use to show to book club gigs and hostings, Angel simply wanted to promote her custom clothing line.
Her instagram followers grew instantly to over 1 million. Near the final episode she threw a party to promote her clothing line. It was Jackie Christie’s extra dramatic performance in Brink’s designed dress that garnered all the attention. Within 24 hours of that episode airing Angel sold 50 dresses and began receiving calls from celebrities. Within the next year she was designing clothes for K. Michelle, XSCAPE, Lil Kim, Ashanti, Angela Simmons and the queen herself Mary J. Blige.
In 2017 Angel Brinks clothing line which includes accessories, and shoes raked in over $3 million in sales. That’s major for a clothing line by a reality star.
