According to RadarOnline, NeNe Leakes will earn $1.5 million for the upcoming season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. No doubt Leakes is the most popular of all the housewives from all the shows combined. While ratings for the New York and New Jersey housewives may take an occasional slump, the Atlanta peaches manage to keep the show going full throttle.
“Without NeNe, ‘RHOA’ wouldn’t be the ratings blockbuster that it continues to be. While some of the other shows including ‘RHONJ’ and ‘RHONY’ have endured ratings slumps, Atlanta has never had to endure that,” a source told RadarOnline. “NeNe made it known she would need a significant raise to do the upcoming season, and Bravo had no choice but to agree to it.”
Leakes has starred and guest-starred in various sitcoms and also launched a clothing line for HSN. Most of her “NeNe Leakes Collection” sold out in one day.
