Up until now, we could only imagine the amount of cash the cast of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” were bringing in as the highest rated “Housewives” franchise on Bravo. We no longer need to wonder as the yearly salary of the housewives – and the husbands – have been revealed!
Kroy Bierman, Kim’s new husband pulls in $50,000 and must be available per request to film. Phaedra’s hubby Apollo Nida also makes $50,000 and must be available to film “at a moment’s notice.”
The highest paid husband is the controversial Peter (Cynthia’s husband), who makes $75,000 a year with immediate availability to film as requested.
The newest addition to the RHOA clan, Marlo Hampton (although not an official housewife), also makes $75,000 and must film at the producer’s request.
Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey make $300,000 plus $75,000 for the reunion taping.
Kandi Burruss makes a hefty $450,000 with a $100,000 bonus for the reunion.
Sheree Whitfield commanded $550,000 with a $150,000 bonus for the reunion show.
Kim Zolciak makes $600,000 with a $150,ooo reunion show bonus.
The highest paid housewife is NeNe Leakes with $750,000 and a bonus of $250,000 for the reunion show.
WOW, It must be nice! No wonder fired housewives try their best to stay on the show and others vie for a spot! Are you surprised at how much they make a year? Is anyone shocked that NeNe makes the most??
