Talk about being rewarded for bad behavior. Kenya Moore is set to make $600,000 of season six of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” according to Us Magazine, with additional bonuses based on ratings.
The former Miss USA (not to be confused with Miss America) brought the drama in Season Five with her famous blowout with castmate Porsha Stewart during which she famously called herself “Gone With The Wind Fabulous”; a fitness DVD rivalry with Phaedra Parks; suggestive text messaging and flirting with Phaedra’s husband, Apollo Nida; and her allegedly fake relationship with Walter, who she later claimed was gay.
Kenya is being paid handsomely for her theatrics as $600,000 is just $200,000 less than what veterans like Nene Leakes, Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss reportedly make for the show. “[Kandi, Kim and Nene] make $800,000 a season,” a source told Us Magazine, “but they can make more for doing certain special things, like Kim taking off her wig.” Conversely, “Phaedra and Porsha make $50,000 per season.”
Hopefully, the raise can help Kenya find a more permanent place to live. What do you think about Kenya landing a bonus for boosting ratings with her antics? Fans of the show, do you plan to tune in for Season Six?
