Well it must be good to be NeNe Leakes! And it's probably good to be Phaedra Parks, too -- but about $400,000 less good. Have you seen how much these girlfriends get paid to be on Real Housewives of Atlanta? Clearly I am in the wrong business.
Check out the bank these ladies make for bringing their living rooms into our living rooms. Not bad! I'm not surprised that they made this much money. RHOA is HUGE for Bravo. They'd better pay those ladies well! No, what surprised me were the big differences between their paychecks.
These are ballpark figures according to Celeb Dirty Laundry:
Cynthia & Phaedra: $300K each
Damn, NeNe! Either she's got mad negotiating skills or she's working some kind of magic the other Housewives don't know about. And what is up with Phaedra? She was major! Did she settle too easily, or did she just not realize what she was bringing to the show when she negotiated her fee? Because that is just wrong.
Now that these numbers are out there I'm thinking the reunion is going to explode -- should they even put Kim and NeNe in the same room with each other? And for that matter, when Kim found out how much NeNe got paid was there an EMT on standby? That's gotta piss her off!
Are you surprised at how much more Nene makes than everyone else?
