NeNe Leakes is not your ordinary housewife, she’s making bank from her reality show, clothing line and Broadway gig! But how much money does she exactly make? Click through to find out NeNe’s net worth by the numbers!
Did you know NeNe is the highest paid Bravo reality star? The RHOA star earned $1.5 million for the current season, according to RadarOnline, because “she is the most popular housewife of any of the Bravo franchises.” Plus, Atlanta is the most popular of the franchises, so it makes sense!
That’s not her only TV salary, either. The 47-year-old also was paid a hefty sum for each season’s reunion shows, had her own spin-off (I Dream Of NeNe) and competed in Dancing With the Stars and The Celebrity Apprentice. She also had roles in Glee and The New Normal. Plus, if she gets the rumored Fashion Police position replacing Kelly Osbourne, her wallet may get even fatter!
She was also the star of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, which ended its Broadway run in January, playing the wicked stepmother.
In addition to her shows on TV and Broadway, NeNe also launched a ridiculously successful clothing line with HSN! The NeNe Leakes Collection, which “works for every woman, any size,” sold out in under a day! She may even have her own line of wigs coming out soon, too!
NeNe is also a published author! In 2009, she penned a book called Never Make the Same Mistake Twice: Lessons on Love and Life Learned the Hard Way discussing her rough childhood and dished on her RHOA drama.
The Queens, N.Y.-native whose real name is Linnethia Johnson has come a long way, though. She currently lives in upscale Atlanta suburb, Duluth, and has a home in Hollywood Hills, California.
