PAYDAY FOR NENE!
Last week, it was announced that Real Housewives of Atlanta stars NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak were getting their own Bravo spinoff called NeNe And Kim: The Road To Riches, but that was just a piece of what Bravo had to offer this reality star staple…
The network reportedly gave the reality star a HUGE raise to stay on the RHOA, too: an insider says that after a pretty lackluster season, the 47-year-old wanted off of the show, until Bravo coaxed her with what helps most of us make consolations…MONEY. The same insider explained:
“NeNe absolutely hated Housewives this season. She hated almost all of the other women and wanted off the show entirely, but she is the most valuable person in the entire franchise and Bravo was going to do whatever she wanted to keep her…So they offered her a HUGE raise…now they’re giving her even more money per episode and her bonuses will be bigger too.”
Leakes was already making the most of the RHOA cast, a whopping $1.5o million for this past season (DANG). But the reality star knows she is valuable. The source continues:
“NeNe is a really smart business woman. She even got Bravo to pay her more than they’re paying Kim on the new show. NeNe knows she is the one people want to see and so she’s going to make Bravo pay up to keep her around.”
Wow, keep on raking in the dough, NeNe. My idea: have her become a financial coach. DANG!
