That would be a massive pay raise for NeNe, who, as Life & Style has previously reported, raked in $1 million per season before leaving the franchise in 2015 after seven seasons. “The suits at Bravo are willing to pay big money to get the best cast,” says the insider.
And if she takes the money, you can bet that NeNe, 49, will bring the drama, especially because her nemesis Kim Zolciak, 38, has reportedly signed on — for a little less money, the insider reveals.
“NeNe has already declared that she expects to be making more money than Kim,” the insider adds, “and would absolutely not come back otherwise.”
