With Real Housewives of Atlanta reaching its 12th season this year, it's not shocking to hear that the ladies behind the fan-favorite reality show are making some serious bank. With major followings both on TV and on social media, these women mean business and are walking away this time around with large paychecks—even with one alleged pay cut. According to a report from RadarOnline, here's what each leading lady is making for the current season.
NeNe Leakes Salary
Star NeNe Leakes surely knows how to keep herself in the spotlight, which has resulted in her being the highest-paid woman of RHOA. The actress, who has appeared on the show since 2010, is reportedly seeing $2.85 million in earnings for Season 12, which is a pay increase from previous seasons.
Kandi Burruss Salary
Longtime RHOA star Kandi Burruss, who first appeared on the Bravo show in 2009, lands second place in terms of salary. The singer is reportedly making $2.3 million for Season 12, which is also a raise from previous seasons.
Cynthia Bailey Salary
Cynthia Bailey joined RHOA in 2010, and has since become a major part of the series. The model is reportedly cashing in for Season 12 at $1.8 million, which is a small raise from previous seasons.
Porsha Williams Salary
Porsha Williams first appeared on RHOA in 2012, and more recently scored a spinoff limited series called Real Housewives of Atlanta: Porsha’s Having a Baby, a three-part special which aired in April 2019. The star is reportedly making $1.3 million for Season 12, which is a small bump from previous seasons.
Kenya Moore Salary
Although Kenya Moore left RHOA in 2018 after six years on the series, she's returning for Season 12, for which she's reportedly seeing a payday of $500,000. RadarOnline reports that this is a major cut from her past salaries, as she saw $1.5 million in earnings for Season 10. People reported at the time of her departure that the decision was due to "messy" contract negotiations.
Eva Marcille Salary
Eva Marcille joined RHOA as an official cast member in 2018 after previously only appearing on the show as NeNe Leake's friend. The model is reportedly making $275,000 for Season 12, which is a slight pay increase from the previous season.
