I’m Very Rich: Nene Leakes Inks $1 Million Contract For RHOA Season 6; Makes Her Highest Paid Housewife!

Nene Leakes At NBC Studios

I’m very rich,” said Nene Leakes! Now this Georgia peach is going back to the bank because she just inked a lucrative $1 million contract plus bonuses for season 6 of Bravo’s RHOA. This makes the Glam-Mother the highest paid housewife.

Radar Online reports, “NeNe is the one viewers watch. She knows that, Bravo knows that and that’s why they gave her a raise,” a source close to production revealed to them.

Nene is more than pleased with her deal. “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!

Everyone gets it, NeNe is the favorite, but they’re still jealous, of course. They wish they could earn what NeNe makes because they don’t think she would be nearly as popular without fighting with them.”

All of the ladies signed their contacts to return for season 6.  The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays on Bravo at 8/7c.

Nene Leakes Speaks On Being The Last Original Housewife On The Show, Divorcing And Remarrying Greg & More

Nene-Leakes-Good-Music-Dinner

There aren’t too many reality stars that actually capitalize off the show and turn their 15 minutes of fame into a multi-million empire. Well, Nene Leakes of Real Housewives Of Atlanta did. The outspoken reality superstar turned business mogul has an empire which includes real estate, a restaurant and shoe line. Nene is more than just reality TV. She also has a recurring role on Fox’s Glee and a regular role on NBC series, The Normal. It is quite obvious that Nene is a brand! The very stylish “glam-mother” recently sat down with Katie Couric for an interview. Check out what she had to say below:

On finding her new reality difficult to fathom at times:

You know, when you’re working and you’re doing stuff over and over and over again, you hardly get a chance to sit a chance to sit and be like ‘Oh, thank you Jesus,” because you’re going from one thing, to the next, to the next. But, I do have those moments where I’m home and I’m like ‘I cannot believe my life,’ like I went from there to there all in a second.”

On why she’s the last original housewife on the show:

Many didn’t have their options picked up again… When people watch the show, they only see what’s happening on the show, so they don’t they don’t really get to see what’s going on behind the scenes. There’s a lot of things that are happening behind the scenes and the only thing that I can say is that it was meant to be and those girls that left, they deserved to go… A piece of me feels bad when each girl leaves the show.”

On why the Bravo franchise’s Atlanta spin-off is so successful:

Well we’re Atlanta girls. We’re the Georgia peaches and we are the only brown girls in the franchise so we are veryyyy different.”

On divorcing and remarrying Greg:

I’m very excited about it [remarrying]. That [the divorce] was to teach Greg a lesson… I think he learned something. Today, a lot of women let men do things that they shouldn’t let them do.”

Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reality Star Nene Leakes Talks Divorce & Getting Back Together With Ex-Husband Gregg

Nene-Leakes-and-Gregg-ATL-Housewives

Greg wanted his wife back and he sure did get Nene back! The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star, actress and business mogul recently co-hosted The Talk and while on set, she confirmed that she and her ex-husband Greg are on good terms and are dating again. Was their whole divorce staged for the money and higher rating? Nene mentioned that their marriage started falling apart when she wanted to step out of Greg’s shadow and branch off on her own. Below are some excerpts:

Gregg and I had been married for 15 years and we had issues.[…] As you guys know, I’m on a reality show, and a lot of the time what happens on these reality shows is that these women are married to successful men, and you’re in their shadow, and once you step out of your own shadow and away from theirs, it can start a little conflict.

I am not sure if Gregg was ready to see me as his wife out in the forefront, making my own money, doing my own thing. That was very difficult for him and I felt like Gregg wasn’t doing all there things that he should be doing as a husband, and I decided to divorce Gregg.”

On Letting Him Go So He Could See What Life Was Like Without Her
He brought his a** back, because the grass is very brown over there. There were other issues going on that were deeper than that. When you are married, there is a certain amount of respect that I desire!

On If There Was Infidelity
Julie Chen: You alluded that it wasn’t just the two of you in the marriage.

Nene: Well, there certainly wasn’t three of us. Because I can’t handle that! Because I am so vocal, I felt like I was accused of doing something wrong in our relationship… and actually it wasn’t me, to be honest, Gregg did something I did not approve of.

Julie: And he came forward with that and although you divorced, you are now a couple but not married.

Nene: Yes, we legally divorced and we were separated for about a year-and-a-half, and now we are back together.

Nene Leakes Credits Herself & “We Are The Only Brown Girls” For The Success ‘RHOA’

Don’t we love the new season of RHOA? The first two episodes have been really good. This season premiere was the most watched show in Bravo’s network history. In a recent interview with The Insider, Nene mentioned that the show does so well because of herself and because they are the only “brown girls.” Nene does a great job at branding herself. Watch her interview below:

In the…’Real Housewives’ franchise, we are the only brown girls,” said Nene. “You can always turn on the TV and see those Beverly Hills girls, those Miami girls, those New Jersey girls, [and] New York girls and you still sort of…get the same flavor, but when you turn and see the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ you’re getting a group of brown girls.”

Nene added that women on RHOA are “super entertaining and “fabulous.” “With us, we’re not so plastic surgery,” she said. “[On] these other franchises, everybody’s so plastic…We’re just regular girls. We’re really keeping it real, and I’m always surprised when people say, ‘Are you guys scripted?’ We’re so not scripted; we’re just a disaster.”
