NeNe Leakes Says Kenya Moore Is Paid “Pennies” to Be on RHoA!

While Bravo will never officially release the salaries of its stars of the Real Housewives franchise, we can usually find out a pretty accurate number from the stars themselves — especially those with looser lips. So when the self-proclaimed “very rich” Atlanta gal NeNe Leakes brought up her co-star (and adversary) Kenya Moore’s pay, we were tempted to believe her.

Former friends (frenemies?) NeNe and Kenya have been facing off on Real Housewives of Atlanta for a few weeks now, and that drama has transferred off-screen to social media. During this week’s March 9 episode of the Bravo reality hit, NeNe was less-than-pleased to see Kenya and Marlo Hampton talking behind her back on-camera, and she lashed out at the former Miss USA on Twitter.

“She is dying 2 be Queen B on the pennies they give her LOL! It's never gonna happen boo so relax,” NeNe writes.

Girl, bye! If NeNe is looking to get under Kenya’s skin, she chose an effective tactic. After all, there’s nothing that these Hotlanta ladies value more than their status amongst one another — i.e. being the “Queen Bee”. And for those wondering, yes, this is an adult version of high school.

Now, we don’t have the goods to back up Linnethia’s statements, so we can’t confirm how much Kenya is paid to be on RHoA — or how it compares to NeNe’s paycheck. But this isn’t the first time the OG Housewife intimated that Kenya’s place on the show was in jeopardy, as just the other day she hinted that someone would get fired before Season 7. Time will tell…

What do you think of NeNe’s statement? Tell us in the comments below.
