Reality TV star NeNe Leakes has been a fan favorite on the Bravo hit reality show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta“. She is now laughing her way to the bank as the highest paid housewife, after securing a $1 million contract. Her saying “I’m Rich Bi%@#!” now has true meaning…guess you can create your own reality.
Many may be shocked that an ex-stripper and divorcée could land such a big deal. But it goes to show that viewers still appreciate a loud mouth, crap talker, who “keeps it real“. I have to agree, she is my favorite housewife, and although she briefly became “Angry NeNe“‘, this season she has gone back to her roots.
But is she worth $1 million in cold cash? Well, based on the huge ratings of the show and her roles on “The New Normal” and “Glee“, she is now a bonified star. It’s a good time for her to cash in on her fame and share in the networks profits, since she was a huge part of its success.
This probably hit her in the nick of time, since rumors that her new sitcom “The New Normal“, is on the chopping block. Love her or hate her, she is still the only reason many watch “Housewives of Atlanta“. NeNe clearly has a huge fan base with over 1 million twitter follower’s.
In the end, reality shows have provided an outlet for everyday people to find success without a huge amount of talent. I am all for it…since not everyone can be a triple threat like Jennifer Lopez.
Good for her…she gives hope to ALL the strippers around the world. There can be a light at the end of the tunnel (or pole). Although NeNe has somehow blocked me from following her on Twitter…she is still my fav:).
On another note, never could figure out why they call them housewives? Never see them clean a house, care for a child and most are not even married. What’s up with that? Guess I could star on that show…well 2 out of three.
