Lies on lies on lies…
We recently reported that RHOA star Kenya Moore got a big raise to return to the Bravo reality show, a raise to the tune of over half a milli!
Via US Weekly reports:
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore will be returning for the hit reality show’s sixth season, a source tells Us Weekly, and the outspoken former beauty queen could not be more thrilled.
“Kenya is very happy to be back!” the source tells Us. According to the insider, Moore, 42, will also get a substantial raise for her contributions to the Bravo show’s success — a whopping $600,000 for the season, with additional bonuses based on ratings.
“NeNe [Leakes], Kim [Zolciak] and Kandi [Burruss] make $800,000 a season but they can make more for doing certain special things, like Kim taking off her wig,” another source previously told Us. “Phaedra and Porsha make $50,000 per season.”
Moore joined the cast last fall for season five, and quickly got off on the wrong foot with castmates Leakes and Cynthia Bailey.
Here’s the problem. Kenya definitely deserves a raise, and $600k isn’t hard to believe considering Bravo has the money. But the statement goes on to say Kenya’s sworn enemies Porsha Stewart and Phaedra Parks only get $50K.
Those numbers for Porsha and Phaedra don’t sound believable, in fact a close source to the show told Urban Belle exclusively that should have been a sure sign to people that the numbers were fake!
“Kenya’s camp sent that story to US Weekly and the numbers are totally made up. NeNe Leakes is the highest paid housewife in the franchise and that’s not changing anytime soon. If it did, she would walk away in a heartbeat.
Bravo is one of the best paying networks, no one on that show is making $50k. Funny Kenya’s people would make up such low numbers for her least favorite housewives and make no mention of Cynthia’s salary and then suggest Kim gets paid extra for not wearing wigs. The whole story reads like a terribly written bad joke.
Lastly, Kenya has no clue how much anyone else is making besides herself. That’s not the kind of information any of the ladies would be willing to share.
Welp! This wouldn’t be the first time Kenya lied about a story for attention….
