REPORT: NeNe Leakes INKS $1 MILLION Contract For "RHOA" Season 6, Now BRAVO'S HIGHEST Paid HOUSEWIFE!
It pays very well to be a Bravo Housewife...at least for NeNe Leakes. Reports are surfacing that the reality star has signed on for season six "RHOA" for a cool million bucks! Get the deets inside.....
During season four of "RHOA" when Nene Leakes first uttered "I'm very rich", many viewers gave her the side-eye. Fast forward to season six, Nene is collecting tv checks from "Glee", "The New Normal" and just signed a contract with BRAVO for a reported $1 Million dollars (and that doesn't even include her bonuses!). It turns out she is "very rich."
According to Radar Online, a source with intimate knowledge of the season 6 contracts said, "NeNe is the one viewers watch. She knows that, Bravo knows that and that’s why they gave her a raise."
So how did the other housewives respond to the news? Radar's source tells them, “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."
Though NeNe seemed to be burning the candle at both ends for season 5 as she commuted between Atlanta and LA, she's really happy with the way things are working out. The site's source says, “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!”
By the way, all of the "RHOA" cast members have reportedly officially signed on for another season.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays on Bravo at 8/7c.
