Before it was confirmed that everyone was returning for Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7, there were rumors going around that all of the ladies — NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Porsha Williams, and Kenya Moore — were holding out for raises, but did they get their wish? Read on to find out what Kenya had to say about the possibility of a super-sized paycheck!

The former Miss USA likes to hold weekly Q&A sessions with her Twitter followers, and even though we were taught never to ask someone about money, that didn’t stop one of Kenya’s fans from inquiring as to whether or not she ever got that raise she was reportedly requesting along with the rest of the cast earlier this year.


In typical Kenya fashion, she neglected to give a direct answer to the question (preferring instead to remain playfully coy) but we think we can piece together what went down based on her cheeky response. “Is that a trick question…,” she replied. “I'm a business...man LOL.”

Like we said, Kenya fails to provide a simple “yes” or “no,” but we’re inclined to believe that she did get a monetary boost going into Season 7. She may not be everyone’s favorite, but Kenya is right on the money (pun intended) when she calls herself a businessman. She’s incredibly smart and savvy, and if anyone can get some extra bucks out of Bravo, it’s Kenya. Let’s also not forget that Kenya’s brawl with co-star Porsha Williams during the Season 6 Reunion helped deliver massive ratings, so a raise was certainly justified!

Do you think Kenya and the other ladies deserve raises going into Season 7? Sound off below!
