As if you didn’t already know, NeNe Leakes is very rich! The reality star turn actress is now the highest paid house wife of the Bravo franchise. Leakes has signed a $1 million deal to return for season 6 among the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ cast. In fact, Leakes had already signed the contract prior to filming the two part reunion show special.
According to Radar Online, “She likes being on the show. 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!”
Leakes is now the only remaining original cast member since the show began following Kim Zolciak’s exit this season.
The question now remains, who among the season 5 cast mates will make their return as well?
Although securing a spin-off, Kandi Burruss is also rumored to make a return. When asked by a fan, via Twitter, if she’d return, Porsha Stewart answered, “There’s a strong possibility”. This comes as no surprise, however. It’s rumored Porsha’s husband, Kordell Stewart, did not want his wife to return to the show. But, with their marriage ending and a divorce filing by the former NFL player, Stewart’s best bet is, perhaps, to make a return — becoming a household name in her own right.
