Remember when Nene Leakes was on the fence about returning for the next season of #RHOA because she believed she as well as the other cast members were due for a raise? Apparently producers feel her $1 million dollars per episode is more than enough.
The Bravo network has reported that although all six of the Atlanta Housewives have been invited back for season 7, Leakes is still standing by her request for a raise. The reality star was rumored to have been hit with a major pay cut and her screen presence was reduced to part-time.
Leakes may have put the rumors to rest after taking to her Twitter account on Friday and releasing a statement:
“I’am NOT comin back 2 RHOA because I was fired, NO I quit, NO I wanted more money, NO they cut my salary & yes all this is BULLS**T”
I love Leakes as much as the next person but all good things must come to an end and she may have stayed on the show a bit past her prime. Leakes was the only original cast member remaining on the show as well as the highest paid out of all of the other present wives.
Leakes will be far from unemployed if she stays true to her departure. After finishing up as a “Dancing With the Stars” contestant she took on a 10-day role hosting Cirque Du Soleil’s Zumanity show in Las Vegas. In addition to her spot on #RHOA she also had a spin-off, “I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding” which covered her wedding ceremony to Gregg Leakes, whom she re-married in 2013 after divorcing him 2011.
Time will tell if Nene stays true to her tweet, but if she does, will #RHOA be the same?
