According to reports, Kenya Moore’s antics during RHOA’s Season 5 has helped her twirl her way right up into RHOA’s season six with a nice pay raise! After holding out on signing a contract for the new season until she was promised some huge bucks to deposit in her bank account, she negotiated a deal that would guarantee her $600,000 for Season 6. Now, that’s a come up!
US Weekly is also claiming that Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss make $800,000 per season, but can make even more money for certain things like when Kim [Zolciak] agreed to take off her wig, and of course spin offs. [Going through a divorce and then remarrying again may have also been worthy of a pay increase.] They also claim that Phaedra Parks and Porsha Stewart make $50,000 per season. That’s a big drop from the $600,000 Kenya will allegedly be making, but relatively better than what a lot of reality stars bank. The average is $1,500-2,500 per episode for the first season with small increases every time the show is renewed.
If those huge pay outs for the RHOA stars are correct, it’s no wonder everyone is jumping in the reality space, and Nene ain’t having it. Over the weekend, she expressed that reality TV was getting too crowded for her taste when she tweeted:
Just saw a list of all the new reality shows that r coming soon! Everybody is a reality star now! WOW! I gotta go
Ironically, her new spin-off, “I Dream Of Nene” is coming soon. She better keep cashing those checks!
