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.

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.
