NeNe Leakes apparently thinks she's worth her weight in gold!
While it seems all but certain that Bravo would like NeNe to return to Real Housewives of Atlanta, the budding spinoff star claims she plans to ask for more moolah if the network wants her to hold a peach!
But NeNe doesn't think she's above her castmates – with ratings for season 6 being massive, NeNe thinks everyone deserves a larger chunk of change. “All of us deserve a raise,” NeNe announced to Life & Style. “I haven’t asked for more money yet, but I damn sure plan to!” NeNe reportedly makes $1 million per season.
You all know Million Dollar Listing: New York is one of my guilty pleasures for Fredrik Eklund's karate moves alone. However, no one does frat boy charm and silly arrogance quite like Ryan Serhant. Those eyes. That pig (I miss you, Kevin Bacon!). Those suits (gracious, those suits). Sure, he often comes across as a cocky S.O.B., but I think he's a real softie underneath it all.
Of course, I should know given that I got to chat with Ryan before this season's premiere. Most exciting ten minutes of my March, by far. Sad, I know. I just like to remember it when I watch…like when he talked about the time capsule town house that was finally featured on last week's episode. Apparently, I'm not the only one that Ryan gives interviews to (I'm shocked–I thought we had something special), and he's opening up about his personal philosophy–and rumors of a MDL crossover!–in a new one.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!

"This year’s campaign features over thirty-five bravolebrities, who are starring in a three-ring circus – Bravo style," boastedBravo.

Kim Kardashian stepped out in Paris with her daughter North West to do some shopping at Givenchy. Nori is adorable, but I'm fixated (as always) on Kim's super white scalp contrasted with her super orange face! It's mesmerizing.
"She has a problem with where the whole show is going. Last season was really dark," Porsha reported. "She said she feels like it's changed." Porsha also emphasized that if NeNe left the show it would be a mutual parting and that Bravo has no intention of firing one of their biggest stars.
NeNe Leakes' future with Real Housewives of Atlanta continues to be a source of speculation. If you're a natural cynic like myself, you're probably starting to think this looks like a big ole' PR stunt by Bravo (and NeNe)!
First there were rumors that NeNe was demoted for angering Andy Cohen, refusing to bring the drama, and making unreasonable demands. Then came the rumors, started by NeNe herself, that she had quit the show. Then NeNe made a prominent appearance at the Upfronts and along with Kandi Burruss was the only RHOA star to represent. Now I firmly believe all the ladies from RHOA will be invited to return, will they all accept – who knows, but with with ratings this high Bravo is not going to mess with success too much!
However, NeNe continues to stoke the rumors that she may leave the show. In a recent interview with NaughtyButNiceRob she admitted she is considering downgrading her role. "I will still work for Bravo – I’m happy to stay on. We just need to work out some things," NeNe revealed. "I’m happy to do some things. I don’t know if I’m happy to be a full time Housewife."
Guess what – they still haven't! No surprise there.
Dr. Glenda Price, President of the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, informed The Wrap that neither Real Housewives of Atlanta star has written that check! ”To date we have not received any funds from these individuals,” Dr. Price confirmed.
