Bravo executives sent out their renewal contracts yesterday for the Real Housewives of Atlanta – and their decisions are SHOCKING. MTO News exclusively learned that for the first time in the history of the show NONE of the housewives were fired.
MTO News spoke with a Bravo executive who told us that all of the peach holding housewives were asked back, but there were a few changes.
The executive explained, “Everyone was asked back, except Tanya – who made it clear that she no longer wants to be a part of the show.”
The executive continued, “But there has been a reshuffling of the cast – Kandi got a substantial pay cut, and Kenya got a raise.” The executive described Kandi’s pay cut as a “demotion.”
According to the Bravo insider, Kenya is now the highest paid housewife, earning approximately $1.5 million for the coming season. She’s followed by Kandi at $1 million, and Porsha at slightly less. Kandi had been the highest paid housewife, earning close to $2 million last season, the insider told MTO News.
“Drew and Latoya will be back, and Latoya was offered a peach,” explained the insider. It’s not clear, however, whether Latoya will accept the role.
But if you think the cast is fully set -you’d be wrong.
The insider told MTO News, “We’re looking for potential new cast members – and I expect there to be new ladies next season.”
There have been rumors that former housewives Phaedra Parks and Sheree Whitfield are angling for a return to the top-rated show.
