Even though she’s announced her new spin-off show with Kim Zolciak, a new report claims NeNe Leakes has been offered a huge raise to return to next season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
â€œNeNe absolutely hated Housewives this season. She hated almost all of the other women and wanted off the show entirely,â€ an insider says. â€œBut 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 the spin-off, which she gladly took.”
As for next season of RHOA?
â€œThey want NeNe and so they offered her a HUGE raise. She already makes the most and now theyâ€™re giving her even more money per episode and her bonuses will be bigger too,â€ the source told RadarOnline.
The report claims Leakes made $1.5 million this season. â€œNeNe is a really smart business woman,â€ the source said. â€œShe even got Bravo to pay her more than theyâ€™re paying Kim on the new show. NeNe knows she is the one people want to see and so sheâ€™s going to make Bravo pay up to keep her around.â€
