NeNe Leakes has reportedly been offered $2.5 million to return next season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“NeNe is always a ratings plus for the show,” a insider explained. “And the producers want to make sure the show stays strong. The reason it stays strong is NeNe, so they’re throwing money at her.”
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 didn’t work out this year.
“Kim [Fields] was not good,” the insider said. “The show needed NeNe to make her interesting, and they know that.”
“NeNe always holds out for as much money as she can get,” the source insisted. “She will string the Bravo people along forever in order to cash in. She’s no dummy.”
