We told you earlier this month that NeNe had demanded more money from the show because she felt like she wasn’t getting paid enough money.
We know that she was making $1 million per season, but the self-proclaimed star of the reality show felt that the only reason the viewers were tuning in was simply because of her and how interesting she comes across on TV.
Nene needs her head check if what this source is saying is actually true.
Oh wait — this story originates from MediaTakeOut so the chances of it being true are second to none, but we’ll go along with what they are alleging and then see if it makes any sense to what we’ve already heard from credible outlets.
So according to the site, Nene demanded more money and the producers said no. Instead of negotiating a deal, they didn’t bother and are reportedly now looking for a new housewife to fill Nene’s position. One that’s cheaper, more interesting and doesn’t hassle the team.
“NeNe Leakes has NOT BEEN ASKED TO RETURN to the Atlanta Housewives,” the site’s sources have reportedly confirmed.
Okay — so here are the facts. Producers of Real Housewives, including Andy Cohen, have not started negotiating deals with any of the cast members because the show just wrapped up.
Deals are not being discussed for another 2-3 months, which would be weeks before the cast then start shooting their first scenes for the forthcoming series. At least this is from what Andy has stated in the past.
But, chances of Nene being axed are still quite high seeing that a lot of viewers have been complaining about her diva behavior and how awful she treats people around her, including the crew members at the show. Kenya Moore famously said that Nene behaves like the queen on set.
It’s too early to tell, but we’ll update you with further information.
