In season 10 of the hit series Real Housewives of Atlanta, the show’s star NeNe Leakes is making bank. The queen of reality tv didn’t take any BS when she negotiated her multi million dollar salary for season 10. It’s reported since Phaedra was let go, producers were scrambling to make sure the show wouldn’t lose it’s ratings. And Parks who was earning $600K allowed Bravo to free up some salary space for other cast members.
They gave each of the women a raise and were able to keep Shamea and Marlo as friends of the show. They also signed on Eva Marcille. With that the network also rolled out the red carpet for NeNe Leakes. The original star was top priority and production signed her on for 2 years worth $2 million. That’s big considering NeNe is also getting $15,000 per hosting gig and appearance fees. On top of the big check Leakes is getting $85,000 just to film the reunion.
Real Housewives of Atlanta makes a lot of money not just in the states but around the world. In South Africa, England and Canada the show gets $150,000 per 30 second ad. Since the show airs in more than 40 countries it’s estimated the show alone earns $250 million per season.
