Nene Leakes Signs $1 Million/Episode Salary with Bravo; Housewives Jealous?

has signed on for another season of Real Housewives of Atlanta for a whopping $1 million according to new reports which officially makes her the highest paid Bravo housewife.

Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the richest of them all?

None other than the original housewife from Atlanta whose sassy attitude and outspoken personality has earned her acting gigs on both Glee and The New Normal.

Radar Online explains:

“NeNe is the one viewers watch. She knows that, Bravo knows that and that’s why they gave her a raise,” a source close to production revealed about her pay hike.

As previously reported, all of the Atlanta ladies signed their contracts for season 6 before the season 5 reunion has even fully aired, and NeNe is more than pleased with her new salary.

“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!”

It looks like all those claims by Leakes about being incredibly rich are finally coming true.

You know what they say – you have to speak things into existence – and it seems like Nene did just that.

So how do Nene’s puppets cast mates feel about the whopping $1 million check going into Nene’s back account?

Radar’s source says the ladies are incredibly jealous:

“Everyone gets it, NeNe is the favorite, but they’re still jealous, of course. They wish they could earn what NeNe makes because they don’t think she would be nearly as popular without fighting with them.”

Of course, Leakes could start a fight with pretty much anyone so the other members are quite replaceable if Nene’s drama is their new selling point.

Congrats NeNe! Seems like she was the only reality star who remembered to only have her ratchet on for the cameras and turn into a businesswoman as soon as they turn off.
