After months of negotiating, NeNe Leakes is finally going to return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. RadarOnline is reporting that the cost to bring Nene wasn’t very cheap.
“The network gave her the most lucrative deal in network history,” a production insider said.
Nene is set to make $2 million for season 10 as a part-time Housewife.
“Along with a lucrative seven-figure salary, NeNe has a most favored nations clause which allows her to have preferential treatment when it comes to scheduling filming events around her personal and business schedule,” the source added. “She also is able to keep her side gigs like hosting Fashion Police on E! and include her HSN Clothing Line and her SWAGG Boutique on the show as promotion.”
“Filming started this week and NeNe is expected to be a center storyline,” the insider continued. “The theme for this season is ‘back to basics’ and the focus is representing real women with real relationships and friendships. The network reiterated to NeNe that the viewers are vested in her personal life and career, and that her participation would mutually increase viewership and serve as platform for her expanding brand.”
