NeNe Leakes has reportedly been offered $2.5 million to return next season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
â€œNeNe is always a ratings plus for the show,â€ a insider explained. â€œAnd the producers want to make sure the show stays strong. The reason it stays strong is NeNe, so theyâ€™re throwing money at her.â€
Although the RHOA reunion is still airing, a source told RadarOnline that Bravo execs want to ensure that Leakes continues to be a part of the show, because their new casting didnâ€™t work out this year.
â€œKim [Fields] was not good,â€ the insider said. â€œThe show needed NeNe to make her interesting, and they know that.â€
â€œNeNe always holds out for as much money as she can get,â€ the source insisted. â€œShe will string the Bravo people along forever in order to cash in. Sheâ€™s no dummy.â€
