The Real Housewives of Atlanta: How Much Are the Stars Paid?

by at .

The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns in early November, and there have been some casting shake-ups.

After a year of suspense, Kenya Moore is off the show.

It doesn't pay to hide your wedding from the cameras, folks. Not when you're a Real Housewife.

But Kenya's vacancy doesn't just make room for new faces -- it also frees up some cash.

Season 10 had some incredible ratings, so a lot of these Housewives got raises for Season 11.

How much are the stars raking in?

1. Which Housewives are making bank?

Which Housewives are making bank?
And which Housewives are just getting by? (Just kidding, even the ones making the least are still raking in the dough)

2. Kandi Burruss

Kandi Burruss
Kandi has gotten a raise thanks to some savvy dramatics last season. Her $2 million salary has gone up to $2.2 million.

3. Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia Bailey
Cynthia is raking in $1.75 million, which is a six-figure raise from her previous salary of $1.6 million.

4. Porsha Williams

Porsha Williams
Porsha Williams got a massive bonus to go with her baby bump. Her salary went from $800,000 to $1.25 million. That is a raise of nearly half a million, folks.

5. Marlo Hampton

Marlo Hampton
Marlo is technically just a "friend" of the Housewives, but few people's friendships turn out to be so lucrative. Marlo is drawing in $275,000 for her recurring role.

6. NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes
NeNe has been raking in the biggest paycheck of any of the Housewives, and that doesn't look like it's going to change any time soon. She was making $2.5 million last season. Now, she's making $2.75 million. Being a living meme pays off.

7. Eva Marcille

Eva Marcille
Eva is only returning for her second season, but she's pulling in $250,000. That's a nice payday, though if she compares it to Marlo or NeNe, she might get a little hot under the collar.

8. Tanya Sam

Tanya Sam
Tanya is only getting paid $100,000, which is not much compared to what any of the other women on the show are raking in.

9. Shamari DeVoe

Shamari DeVoe
Shamari is also getting an entry level salary of $250,000.

10. Kim Zolciak-Biermann

Kim Zolciak-Biermann
Kim was only a "friend of the Housewives" in season 10, and only a guest in season 9. Fortunately, she doesn't need season 11 -- she has her own life and her own show.

11. Alas, poor Kenya

Alas, poor Kenya
Kenya Moore will not be returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Not this season, anyway.

12. Kenya made big in Season 10

Kenya made big in Season 10
Kenya raked in $1.5 million ... but got fined nearly a tenth of that, $125,000, over her secret wedding.

13. We hope that Kenya is happy with her choices

We hope that Kenya is happy with her choices
She got Marc Daly and she got her pregnancy. But she lost her job. We hope that it was worth it.
