We already know that Nene is very rich, but RadarOnline.com reports that her pockets may be getting a little fatter thanks to a nice raise from Bravo. A source close to production claims that the reality diva has just signed a $1 million contract to be on season 6 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
“NeNe is the one viewers watch. She knows that, Bravo knows that and that’s why they gave her a raise,” the insider said, adding that NeNe also has the potential to earn some bonuses under her new deal.
Supposedly, the ladies of “RHOA” signed on for season 6 before they even shot the season 5 reunion. But no matter when the cast inked their new contracts, NeNe wasn’t going to hesitate to secure her spot on season 6.
“She likes being on the show,” the source said. “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!”
While all the wives will be well-compensated for allowing Bravo cameras to follow them around, there are whispers that NeNe’s “RHOA” co-stars feel a little funny about NeNe earning top dollar.
“Everyone gets it, NeNe is the favorite, but they’re still jealous, of course,” the insider claims. “They wish they could earn what NeNe makes because they don’t think she would be nearly as popular without fighting with them.”
