Bethenny Frankell 46 of RHONY, is “seeing red” over Nene Leake’s 49 new deal for her return to RHOA. Nene departed the show in 2015 after 7 seasons so she could pursue other interests.
Nene will now be the highest paid housewife in network history with a salary of TWO million dollars, She is expected to have a central story line in the upcoming season. Nene was also able to negotiate the “nations clause” which means the show will shoot around her schedule. Until now, Bethenny has been the highest paid housewife and is not happy to be losing that status.
The Bethenny/Nene rivalry goes back to 2014 when Bethenny was planning to rejoin the cast of RHONY. Up till then Nene was the highest paid housewife but was planning on taking time off which she subsequently did. At that time. it boosted Bethenny into the highest paid slot.
It is expected that Bethenny will continue to stay relevant by introducing her new boyfriend, Russ Theriot to her fans.. Hopefully Nene’s new salary will help rid her of her financial woes. It was reported by the DailyMail, last year that Nene reportedly owed $824,000 in back taxes to the IRS.
