Kenya Moore Getting Housewives Pay Raise. Her Net Worth Biography Wiki
Since she joined the cast in season 5 Kenya Moore has been the center of all the drama on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Her personal struggles and cat fights with the other cast members have helped the series regain it’s ratings. The ratings boost might explain why Kenya Moore is being paid a salary of $600K which is more than co-stars Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey who have been on the series for 3 seasons. She was Miss USA 20 years ago but has gotten the new crown as the ultimate hustler. Her net worth in 2013 is $7 million which includes her recent pay raise. So what does it take to go from a $75K salary to almost 7 times that in one year?
In season 5 Kenya had a large fan following and apparently she knew her worth. Moore and her management made a request to Bravo for a competitive raise compared to her co-stars or she would be out the door. It seems Bravo had no hesitation since the series earns over 3 million viewers EVERY Sunday which drove the cost of advertisement on the series to $100K per 30 seconds. The show is also a hit internationally in Brazil and England who reportedly have 4.2 million viewers collectively for both countries. That’s even bigger dollar signs for the network. The show also is a hit with internet viewers through Hulu who also send Bravo a percentage of the ad revenue. Which might explain why Bravo offered NeNe Leakes $1 million from season 6.
On top of the ladies big salaries they also get $100K for filming the reunion show. WOW!!! That $600K pay check might seem like a lot but to the network it’s only a small percentage of what the network is earning.
Just imagine what Kenya might be getting if she makes it to season 7!
