NeNe Leakes told “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” producers to “show me the money!” claims the National Enquirer.

According to the tabloid, Leakes already makes $1 million per season plus bonuses, but she still wants a raise for her return.

“NeNe thinks she is a bigger star now, due to a recurring role on ‘Glee‘ and the now-canceled sitcom ‘The New Normal,'” a so-called insider tells the magazine in insanely fake sounding language.

“Her ego is out of control, but she is wrong if she thinks Bravo will give her more money,” adds the “source.”

The National Enquirer cites the reality star’s recent appearance on the “Arsenio Hall Show” — where she hinted that she may not return for the next season — as a sign she is “playing hardball.”

The alleged insider claims Leakes is “betting the network does not want to lose her.”

“NeNe is playing Russian roulette and may lose a very good payday,” the “source” goes on to say.

Is Leakes really plotting for a pay raise?


Remember, this is the same magazine that incorrectly claimed Leakes was feuding with her “Dancing with the Stars” co-star Candace Cameron in March.

A source close to Leakes tells Gossip Cop that the tabloid’s claim that she’s “out of control” and “playing hardball” with Bravo are “lies.”
