NeNe Leakes Is The Highest Paid Real Housewife! How Much Does She Make?


Real Housewives of Atlanta Star NeNe Leakes just signed her contract for Season 6, and RadarOnline reports Bravo is paying her $1 million plus bonuses for one Season! This officially makes her the highest paid Housewife! “NeNe is the one viewers watch. She knows that, Bravo knows that and that’s why they gave her a raise,” a source close to production reveals.

“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!” the insider adds.

Apparently, NeNe’s million dollar salary isn’t going unnoticed by her cast mates. “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,” the source said.
