Every year…the same story.

NeNe Leakes was reportedly ready to leave “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” fed up that her career has outgrown the Bravo series, but the network ponied up some huge coin to keep her around – and this time a spinoff series was part of the deal.

All of this, according to Radar Online:

Leakes announced her new reality show with Kim Zolciak, called “NeNe And Kim: The Road To Riches” last week, and a source revealed what the behind-the-scenes negotiations were.

“NeNe absolutely hated Housewives this season. She hated almost all of the other women and wanted off the show entirely,” the source told Radar.

“But she is the most valuable person in the entire franchise and Bravo was going to do whatever she wanted to keep her. So they offered her the spin-off, which she gladly took,” said the source.

As Radar previously reported, Leakes did the bare minimum to promote RHOA this season, but the Bravo execs didn’t care and made her return virtually impossible to turn down.

“They want NeNe and so they offered her a HUGE raise. She already makes the most and now they’re giving her even more money per episode and her bonuses will be bigger too,” the source claimed.

Leakes was already making a whopping $1.5 million for this season and she made sure she leveraged her unhappiness for her upcoming shows.

“NeNe is a really smart business woman,” the source said.

“She even got Bravo to pay her more than they’re paying Kim on the new show. NeNe knows she is the one people want to see and so she’s going to make Bravo pay up to keep her around.”

    If she hated it that much, there isn’t enough money. Dave Chappell can explain. Last Sunday was the best show, without her. Bravo got the deal she didn’t. How much is Andy going to make off her rump shaker? Kandi got her own spin off and so did Kim. Why is she sharing a spin off?

  2. Please let this bitch exit all media outlets stage left. This no talent wig wearing woman is one of the worst image of African American women and all women I have ever seen.

    • I agree, she has no talent , but she is greedy as hell. That is what its all about MONEY!! She needs to go back to the pole, that way she would definitely get the attention she is dying to get from people. Does this woman not realize that is hated in so many ways, not to mention an embarrassment to females that have pride about themselves.
