‘RHOA’: Kandi Burruss Responds to the Claim That She Makes the Most Money from Filming the Show
The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) cast still has its feuds this season. One of the feuds is between Kenya Moore and Nene Leakes. Moore publicly brought up their salaries to address one rumor about Leakes and her position on the show.
The new mother claimed Kandi Burruss makes the most from filming. Find out what Burruss had to say about that and the rumors around their salaries.
Kenya Moore claimed Kandi Burruss makes the most out of the cast
Moore talked about her feud with Leakes on The Wendy Williams Show. The talk show host accused her of being after Leakes’ paycheck.
Williams said that Leakes is the “top biller” on the show, but Moore claims differently. “Kandi makes the most money, OK? So, if I was coming for anybody’s purse and bag it would be Kandi’s,” claimed Moore. “And Kandi is the real HBIC on that show OK? I’m just a player.”
She continued, “I have a nice coin. I love my little bag I take home at night and it feeds my child very well. So I’m not coming for anybody’s money.”
Burruss doesn’t think it’s appropriate to talk about salaries
Now the rumored highest-paid star is responding to Moore’s comment. She doesn’t seem to want to open up about her salary.
“Oh gosh, I don’t think it’s appropriate for you to talk about what you’re getting paid,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “You know what I’m saying?”
She then said, “I’m not going to confirm neither here nor there. What I will say is, I’ve seen what the blogs said for years, and they’ve never had my salary right, OK?”
Burruss said this isn’t just the case for her. “When I see those reports that will come out about how much each person makes on the show, I’m like, ‘Who’s giving them this information?'” she asked. “Like, who’s really sending it in to say, ‘Oh, this person makes…’ I know I’m not telling anybody how much I make!”
The good thing is that Burruss is happy with her deal. She said, “Bravo has treated me well, as well as they treat everybody well on this show.”
What is the latest rumor around their salaries?
Burruss claims the rumors around their salaries are not true. But some fans might be curious about what kind of numbers are being put out there.
Radar Online claimed to have the salaries of the cast of season 12. The blog claimed Moore was paid $500,000, Porsha Williams was paid $1.3 million, Cynthia Bailey was paid $1.8 million, Burruss was paid $2.3 million, and Leakes was paid $2.85 million.
This information would certainly go against Moore’s claim that the songwriter is the highest-paid cast member in the cast. However, Burruss wouldn’t confirm or deny whether that is true.
Leakes did take some time before filming with the rest of the cast this season because she was still negotiating her contract. In the end, the cast seem to be happy with whatever they are taking home.
