Reality pays, especially for NeNe Leakes!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has inked her contract for season 6 of the hit Bravo show, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that she got a raise and is now the highest paid housewife, pulling in a whopping $1 million plus bonuses for the season!
“NeNe is the one viewers watch. She knows that, Bravo knows that and that’s why they gave her a raise,” a source close to production revealed about her pay hike.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, all of the Atlanta ladies signed their contracts for season 6 before the season 5 reunion has even fully aired, and NeNe is more than pleased with her deal.
“She likes being on the show. NeNe is really happy with the New Normal and Glee, where she can be a real actress, but she knows her bread and butter comes from Bravo and that’s why she’s coming back, ‘cause she can’t turn the money down!”
However, that million-dollar salary isn’t going unnoticed by the other ladies in the cast.
“Everyone gets it, NeNe is the favorite, but they’re still jealous, of course. They wish they could earn what NeNe makes because they don’t think she would be nearly as popular without fighting with them.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays on Bravo at 8/7c.
