“Real Housewives of Atlanta” NeNe Leakes is worth at least $4.5 million, though it could be a lot more. She recently signed a $1 million deal to return for the sixth season of Bravo’s popular reality show, which makes her highest paid housewife in the cast.
One of NeNe’s favorite catchphrases is “I’m rich, bitch!” While she hasn’t always had a big fortune, she has recently added to her net worth with guest starring roles on “Glee” and “The New Normal.” In 2011, NeNe competed on “The Celebrity Apprentice.” At the time, she declared she was “very rich,” though Donald Trump Jr. seemed skeptical.
“All the celebrities on the show play for charity. She received a small appearance fee, sure, but that was it,” he told Wetpaint. “And as far as I know, she’s not involved with any of our other business or corporations. So I’m not sure what she’s talking about.”
NeNe has also become an entrepreneur, opening up her own franchise of Italian eatery chain, Famous Famiglia. It was rumored that she was involved with the restaurant’s founder, John Kolaj, but in January 2013, NeNe announced she was reuniting with ex-husband Gregg Leakes.
