14. NeNe Leakes – $1.5 Million
Bravo hit the jackpot when it started its Real Housewives franchise. Starting with Real Housewives of Orange County in 2006, it has been releasing spin-off ever since. One of the highest paid housewives is apparently Nene Leakes of “Real Housewives of Atlanta”. Though she is no longer a regular on the show, it was reported that she was paid $1.5 million per season before she had officially left the show.
