The Real Housewives of Atlanta is a great success and has been for quite some time. The reality series premiered in 2008 and fans of the show practically live for the drama that is the centerpiece of each episode. Focusing on six women, it focuses on their lavish lifestyles, friendships and relationships.
The show’s main stars are Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, Eva Marcille, NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey, and there’s no doubt that each cast member gets paid a penny a season. The series, in fact, is so popular that it is currently one of the most watched shows on television.
There have been several spin-offs, and it seems like every season is even better than the previous one. Just like the cast of most series, there are definitely differences in the amount of money that each cast member receives for each season. This could cause bitter feelings and animosity, especially if there is someone who earns much more than everyone else. So, is it true that NeNe Leakes earns more than the rest of the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta?
RHOA: The salaries of all the cast members
What are the salaries of each cast member? Kandi Burruss, who has been on the show since season two, is extremely well paid, taking home $2.3 million. Cynthia Bailey joined the cast in 2010 and is making quite a bit of money, raking in $1.8 million for season 12.
Kenya Moore, who appeared for the first time in season 5, recently got a pay cut, bringing her salary down from $1.5 million to just $500,000 after being fired and then rehired from the show.
Porsha Williams also joined the cast in season 5 and is not exactly getting a pay cut, having been paid $1.3 million for season 12. And then there’s Eva Marcille who joined the show full-time in season 11 and is doing much less than the rest. How much are they paying her?
After three seasons of the show, she gets $275,000, only $25,000 more than before. So who’s the highest-paid housewife on the show?
