If you thought Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s queen b, NeNe Leakes was doing a lot of hollering about being rich before, if the current rumors are true, chances are you haven’t seen anything yet. Word on the streets is that it’s like Christmas for some RHOA stars over at the Bravo offices, as this is generally the time of year that the ladies renegotiate their contracts. Insiders say that NeNe Leakes inked a deal so sweet it made her the highest paid housewife in the franchise.

Sources revealed to Radar Online that both Bravo and NeNe know that viewers tune in each week to see her, which is a tidbit that Leakes appropriately used to her advantage when it came to negotiating her contract for Season 6.

“NeNe is the one viewers watch. She knows that, Bravo knows that and that’s why they gave her a raise,” said the production insider.

The source went on to imply that the relationship between NeNe and Bravo is mutual and that both parties are happy.

“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! 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.”

NeNe’s renegotiated contract reportedly consists of a $1 million salary plus bonuses, which haven’t been disclosed.

While we can’t confirm whether the rumors are true or not, we can say that 2013 appears to be a great year for the über fabulous “glammother.”


Would you say $1 million is appropriate compensation for a reality star?

    Is it 1million per episode or 1 mil for the whole season. Because if it’s the latter then that’s not great.

    Wow, it is so amazing that you can cuss, fight, have a foul mouth, women call each other b’s, act a fool long enough on reality television you can get a million dollar contract. It sad instead of getting and education, this is showing young women especially black women to skip education, get a reality television show act a fool, cuss and fight. It is a shame it reduces down to the lowest term of this.
