Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore announced during the reunion show that most of the drama revolved around her this season.
While that maybe true, Bravo knows who’s the star and fan favorite. NeNe Leakes, who is arguably the most popular star of the entire franchise, was just given a hefty raise.
Leakes allegedly signed a new contract for season six that’s worth $1 million dollars, plus bonuses. That huge payday makes her the highest-paid housewife of the Real Housewives franchise, Radar Online reports.
“NeNe is the one viewers watch,” a Source told Radar Online. “She knows that, Bravo knows that and that’s why they gave her a raise. She likes being on the show. NeNe is really happy with the New Normal and Glee, where she can be a real actress, but she knows her bread and butter comes from Bravo and that’s why she’s coming back, ‘cause she can’t turn the money down!”
All of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast has reportedly signed on for season six.
“Everyone gets it, NeNe is the favorite, but they’re still jealous, of course,” the source added. “They wish they could earn what NeNe makes because they don’t think she would be nearly as popular without fighting with them.”
Leakes has transformed from reality star to actress. She joined the cast of Glee in the third season in a recurring role as the Olympic bronze-medalist and synchronized swimming coach, Coach Roz Washington. NeNe is also starring in The New Normal, as Rocky Rhoades.
