What is NeNe Leakes’ RHOA salary? NeNe Leakes has become a household name in the world of reality television. As a result, she’s been able to expand her brand on the small screen, and now Leakes is a legitimate actress who happens to have roles on two successful shows, Glee and The New Normal. Leakes hasn’t been quiet about any of her success, and when she’s not beefing with any of the past or current housewives on Real Housewives of Atlanta, she is usually bragging about her bank account. NeNe’s favorite phrase is “I’m very rich,” and she just loves to throw her success in the faces of the rest of cast of the hit Bravo reality television show. However, some have been skeptic of NeNe’s claims of wealth. Quite frankly, although reality television stars get a decent check for their time on the television screen, most of them haven’t managed to accumulate actual wealth unless they take advantage of other opportunities, such as the Kardashian clan has been able to do with their numerous business ventures. But as the self proclaimed star of RHOA, NeNe claims she gets a rather nice sized check from Bravo.

NeNe’s alleged salary has been revealed, and Radar Online claims the reality television star makes $350,000 a season, making her the highest paid housewife on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Out of the entire franchise, the top billed housewife is Teresa Giudice, star of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Giudice makes about $600,000 per season.

In related news, whispers in the industry suggest NeNe plans to make her bank account even bigger by getting her own talk show. According to several sources, NeNe is in talks now to bring her own talk show to the small screen. NeNe did recently tell her fans that something big is in the works, so it’s possible there could be some truth to this rumor.

    350,000 isn’t bad. But I don’t see how she’s rich. I would think as a newer actress, she can’t command that much from her sitcoms.

    LOL. She is not rich. I am proud of her for hustling, but she can’t be rich yet.

    That’s it? She should make more than that. RHOA gets more ratings than the NJ hags. Why are they getting paid more? Because they are white women? Please.

    I honestly thought she made more. I mean that’s not bad for only allowing cameras to following you around for a few weeks, but I did think she made twice that.

    She may be rich but she sure isn’t wealthy. And there’s a huge difference between the two.

    This sounds about right. It’s too low when RHOA brings in more ratings than all the other housewives. IJS.
