Nene Leakes may have a reason to exclaim "I'm rich, B!$ch! Apparently, she will be the highest paid Housewife in the franchise's history as reports have surfaced that she is set to make a cool $1 million dollars for Season 5. It had surfaced a few months ago that she made $750,000 dollars for last season and being the major star of the show, it is not a shock why she could command that much. Some had criticized Nene for not be as boisterous as she had been in past seasons. To that, she has said that she is growing and building a brand.
