One of NeNe Leakes’s favorite catchphrases, “I’m rich, bitch!” leaves little room for guessing. She’s made it abundantly clear to her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars that she’s at the “Donald Trump” level of wealth, which — while clearly an exaggeration — doesn’t really even seem like that good of a deal. Is that really the best comb over money can buy?
But just how accurate is NeNe’s claim?
To be honest, it looks like NeNe has got some bank to back up her bluff. She’s worth a hefty $4.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. In addition to the whopping $750,000 Ms. Leakes is raking in for each Real Housewives season (the most of any Bravo housewife!), the savvy entrepreneur has parlayed her reality show character into a legitimate career.
After a memorable turn on The Celebrity Apprentice, NeNe landed a starring role on NBC’s now canceled The New Normal, and even snagged her own spin-off, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.
Between that job and her various other television appearances, NeNe’s Ebony cover of her bathing in diamonds is more realistic than we thought!
