ARE THEY "VERY RICH"?: The Alleged Salaries Of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta

 

NeNe Leakes once infamously said, "I'm very rich".... and now we may know why.   If these reports are true.  Get the deets on NeNe's alleged salary and find out house much the other housewives may make inside......

 

Hello Beautiful posted the alleged salaries of the "RHOA" stars and they are actually make pretty good money....if all is true. NeNe Leakes (the "rich" one) is said to make $750,000 a season on the show (and that's pretty damn good for a housewife), plus a $250K bonus.  So that's a million dollars total.  Kim Zolciak--who made maybe 5 total appearances the entire season, oddly supposedly made the second most. 

Meanwhile, her rival Sheree Whitfield is said to make close to $700K.  I hope she saved some because she's not likely to return next year.  And since many people aren't feelin' her......the options are limited.

Here's the reported breakdown:

NeNe Leakes – $750K per season, plus a $250K bonus for doing the reunion show

Kim – $600K per season plus a $150K bonus for doing the reunion show

Sheree – $550K per season plus a $150K bonus for doing the reunion show

Kandi – $450K per season plus a $100K bonus for doing the reunion show

Phaedra and Cynthia – $300K per season plus a $75K bonus for doing the reunion show

Marlo – $75K – she must be available for filming on request.

Peter (Cynthia’s husband) – $75K – he must be available for filming on request.

Kroy and Apollo – $50K – must be available for filming on request.

Hmmm.  Reportedly, The "Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast drew in about $165K max...for the season.  And they had one of the highest rated seasons of the whole franchise last season.  So the RHOA numbers do seem a bit inflated.  But who knows.  Either way...we all know faking it till you make it is a Housewife specialty.  Do you boos....

Trust me, there's no effing

Trust me, there's no effing way they're getting paid that much. I'm going to go ahead and guess at the most Nene and Kim make $500,000 a season. AT THE MOST. Not to mention it's so cheap to live in Atlanta, if they were getting that much we'd actually she Chateux Sheree.

I'm sorry, but even IF this

I'm sorry, but even IF this is what they are making (and I doubt it), a million dollars after taxes is 500,000, and that ain't rich. And spending the way they spend and front on the show, they will be broke quicker than these broke-ass athletes that make tens of millions a year!

Hmm.. well based on this,

Hmm.. well based on this, they can all go ahead and stop calling themselves rich. Nene makes the same amount of money a doctor or lawyer would.. so she is upper middle class.. People with real money dont have to announce it.

i agree!!! people that are truely rich do not feel the need to broadcast, the money she is making is more money than she had now she thinks she's rich, typically rich ladies have more than 1 birkin bag....ijs

It's easy to tell who is not

It's easy to tell who is not rich based on these comments. Clearly, folks received tax refunds rather than had to pay taxes, so you aren't rich. $1 million isn't a lot of money, especially when a person IS paying taxes. Someone who earns $1 million would owe at least 40% of their earnings to the IRS. I'm pretty sure these women, if they're smart, have attorneys negotiating their contracts. They likely have agents & business managers. Now deduct 10% of the manager, 20% for the agent and whatever the attorney charges & see how rich they end up. It's sad that Black people think because Nene is on RHOA and "a rich guy is interested in her" that makes HER rich. A recurring role on Glee may pay well. But again, deduct the same fees or greater and see what's left. Unless these women have mass merchandise marketed with their names or likenesses, they are probably fairing as well as the standard middle to upper-middle class citizen. Kandi is worth the most because she receives publishing money and multiple successful business ventures that consistently yield income. Kandi may have one of the "lesser" story lines, but she is using RHOA as Bethenny used RHONY to build her brand. Learn how business works and stop thinking some man with $20 is going to save you, because he won't, unless he can get something from you in return. Smh

Say what you want about Nene.

Say what you want about Nene. She makes that show. Everyday she's hustling(music)plus got a rich guy interested in her. Y'all know damn Sheere is jealous. Glad she is know longer on the show. Always starting uncecessary trouble, and pretends to be sooo classy. Bet she will miss that Bravo check. Maybe she will be a nanny for Kim, since she's such good friends with her. Preferr Marlo, over Sheere.

I think Phaedra should make

I think Phaedra should make more, because she adds quite a bit to the entertainment of this show. Why her salary is so low, when most of the interesting stuff has been because of her, IDK.

It's been reported in the AJC

It's been reported in the AJC (Atlanta's big daily newspaper) that when "The RHOA" first came on the air, they were making between $10,000 to $15,000 per episode. According to the AJC's television reported, they are now making between $20,000 to $25,000 per episode. So, these current estimates are in the correct ballpark. However, I wouldn't call someone making this amount of money rich. They are doing well--and better than I am--but still not rich in my opinion. In my newspaper reporter days, I interviewed and attended charities with folks (CEOs, business owners, heirs, etc.) who make minimums of at least $1 million a year, take three to six month vacations, live in massive mansions (one of about six), have fleets of expensive cars (they give what they call old cars, such as 4-year-old BMWs, Jags, etc., to the maids, pool guys, gardeners, etc), etc. These folks are rich. They are worth at least $100 million easily. They've gone their entire lives living in mansions, driving expensive cars, traveling the world, etc. This is what I call rich. The Atlanta housewives are just a group of women who are doing well. There's a big difference. With the exception of Kandi, none of them are rich in my opinion. And even she is not at the level as the folks I associated with in my newspaper days. My advice to the women is to spend wisely and invest. I’ll give the show another season—maybe two—before Bravo pulls the plug on it. The ratings are going down. What’s going to happen when the chicks stop coming in. Rich is when your money works for you, not when you have to work for the money. These women have to work for their money. Look at the Kennedys. The family fortune that was made more than 80 years ago is still lining the pockets are heirs. Look at the Wal-Mart family. I can go on and on. These folks are rich.

That is all good, she is a rich bitch but Ne Ne's attitude is broke as hell and STANK. It's wonderful to make alot of money , it's what you do that matters too and her personality screams I got money bitches but no morals or compassion for anyone who can't kiss my ass

I'm interested in seeing how much the other real housewives get paid from the other shows (especially Beverly Hills and New York). Those chicks were very wealthy before Bravo unlike ATL housewives.
