Rumor has it that NeNe Leakes just received a substantial raise on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” During a recent interview with “Extra,” the 46-year-old reality star addressed rumors that she had been paid $1.5 million to return to season seven of “RHOA.”
“I was not offered $1.5, let’s be clear, yeah, it’s a lot nicer than that,” Leakes stated.
As for whether or not Leakes will be returning for season eight, she says …
“This is my seventh season, I’m the OG of the Atlanta housewives, I’m the only original girl standing. For me, you have to grow up at some point in life and career, I don’t wanna be bickering, arguing, snatching weaves every single day, just doesn’t make me feel good.”
Fortunately for us, Bravo released a super trailer for season eightlast week, featuring a brief cameo of Leakes during a spat with newcomer, Claudia Jordan. If you ask us, Leakes isn’t done just yet.
