She’s getting money, honey!

Nene Leakes is returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but at a steep cost for Bravo.

After a three-month negotiation, the in-demand reality star will be earning more than $2 million for the new season, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

“The network gave her the most lucrative deal in network history,” a production insider said.

And in addition to the cash, she'll be receiving major perks.

“Along with a lucrative seven-figure salary, Nene has a most favored nations clause which allows her to have preferential treatment when it comes to scheduling filming events around her personal and business schedule,” the source added. “She also is able to keep her side gigs like hosting Fashion Police on E! and include her HSN Clothing Line and her SWAGG Boutique on the show as promotion.”

“Filming started this week and Nene is expected to be a center storyline,” the insider continued. “The theme for this season is ‘back to basics’ and the focus is representing real women with real relationships and friendships. The network reiterated to Nene that the viewers are vested in her personal life and career, and that her participation would mutually increase viewership and serve as platform for her expanding brand.”

Leakes, 49, left the show after seven seasons to pursue other opportunities.

Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield are all expected to return full-time. Williams’ friend Shamea Morton will make appearances alongside Kim Zolciak.

As Radar previously reported, Moore’s rumored wedding will not be featured on the season — but her work trip will be.
