Nene Leakes is now the un-disputed most popular Housewife of the Real Housewives franchise. The tall and vivacious actress took the reality world by storm and now demands a bigger paycheck than any other lady on Bravo!
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.
Congratulations Ms. Leakes!!
