LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Major RHOA salary increases for Phaedra Parks, Nene Leakes and all the Atlanta Housewives are expected for the next Bravo season. Last Sunday’s Phaedra Parks Kenya Moore showdown delivered record ratings for Bravo. Next week’s Kenya Moore’s cancer health scare episode is expected to do the same for Bravo. In fact, RHOA ratings have been so high for Bravo this season the reasonably budgeted Housewives show has been beating the big budgeted film cable dramas that week. But how much could the Housewives soon be earning?
After a season in a which fans have asked is Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida getting divorce, does Kenya Moore have cancer, are Kenya Moore and Walter still together, and do Kandi Burruss and Todd get married, Bravo is expected to increase salaries across the board. In 2012, news reports claimed that NeNe Leakes at the time was getting paid in salary plus reunion show a staggering one million dollar per season.
Kim Zolciak at the time was reportedly the second highest paid RHOA member at seven hundred fifty thousand dollars. Rounding out the cast were allegedly Sheree at $700,000, Kandi at $550,000, and Phaedra and Cynthia at $375,000.
But with Zolciak gone, could Kenya Moore soon get paid close to one million a season as well? And will Phaedra reportedly get a substantial increases well? If the 2012 numbers were correct, some RHOA members are still cheaper than the New York housewives, which doesn’t perform as well in the ratings. In season four, Jill Zarin and Ramona Signer were earning $500,000 per season, claimed the Post.“Would a girl talk about how much she gets paid?” Sonja Morgan told news at the time.
This week, Kenya tells news “Phaedra wants everyone to believe I “drink like a fish.” Phaedra asserts that she believes I am bipolar or have a chemical imbalance. The only thing that makes me “crazy” is that I ever believed this woman was my friend. She is a malicious, despicable human being, who intentionally sought to malign my reputation and harm my future business with her debasing lies.” But for now, those remarks, and Kenya’s dressing up like Phaedra, have been delivering record ratings for Bravo.
