Stars of the hit Bravo reality TV show the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reportedly earn different salaries and bonuses every season, and new reports suggest that veteran housewife, Nene Leakes, is the show's top earner.

Leakes, 44, earns $750,000 per season and an additional $250,000 bonus for doing the reunion show, according to celebrity gossip website MediaTakeOut.

Newlywed housewife and pregnant mother of three, Kim Zolciak, 33, who along with Leakes has been a cast member since the show's very first debut, is the second highest earner, raking in $600,000 per season and an additional $150,000 bonus if she attends the reunion show.

Renowned producer Kandi Burruss, 35, has been a real housewife since season 2 and reportedly earns $450,000 per season and a $100,000 bonus for doing the reunion show.

Atlanta-based attorney Phaedra Parks, 40, who recently found herself mired in controversy after allegations that she was involved in running a car theft ring, is paid $300,000 per season plus a $75,000 bonus if she agrees to do the reunion show.

Former Alabama-born supermodel Cynthia Bailey, 43, also earns $300,000 per season plus a $75,000 bonus if she agrees to the reunion show.

Newcomer Marlo Hampton, 35, and Peter Thomas, Cynthia's husband, are paid $75,000 each and are both contractually obligated to be available for filming upon request by the show's producers.

Zolciak's husband, Kroy Biermann, 26, and Park's husband, Apollo Nida, both receive $50,000 each and also must be available for filming upon request.

Sheree Whitfield, who was reportedly let go recently, is the third highest earner with a reported $550,000 salary per season along with a $150,000 bonus if she shows up for the reunion special.

The 42-year-old, who, like both Leakes and Zolciak, is an original cast member, was reportedly fired by Bravo producers due to her salary demands, according to S2S Magazine.

The mother of two allegedly approached producers for more money and ended up in tears when they not only refused to give her a pay increase but decided that it was time to let her go.

Whitfield has not addressed the axing rumors although a friend said that their very well could be some truth to the reports.

"The way Bravo operates is that they don't tell you [anything]. So, I don't know. I heard people talking about it, but until one of the producers tells me, I don't know it for a fact," the insider told S2S.
