The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members’ salaries from Bravo were leaked online. Find out which housewife earns the most money on the hit reality series.
The ladies on The Real Housewives of Atlanta love to show off their expensive cars, jewelry, and houses and while some of them may have had a good amount of money before they starred on the Bravo series, these women make a very good salary as the stars on one of Bravo’s most popular reality television shows.
Radar Online obtained documents revealing the Bravo reality stars’ salaries for the cast of Season 9 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Kandi Burruss was the highest paid talent on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. This season, she made $1.8 million.
Cynthia Bailey raked in $1.2 million for her participation in Season 9. Bailey’s ex, Peter Thomas, only got $20,000 for his time on the show.
Kenya Moore was paid $1.4 million this year for continuing to stir up the drama.
It turns out that this season, Sheree Whitfield was much less in demand apparently making only $800.000 for her appearance on RHOA.
Ultimately, it was revealed that Porsha Williams was paid the least by Bravo this season, bringing in only $700,000.
So Kandi Burress made more than a million dollars more than Porsha Williams did for Season 9.
So what do you think abou the salary Tea….CORRECT or NAH?
Awwwww, This little girl dressed up like Taraji P. Henson in ‘Hidden Figures' and it's so precious, we're ugly crying
In case you needed any further proof that empowering female role models are so, so important, this little girl just dressed up like Taraji P. Henson’s character in Hidden Figures, Katherine Johnson. The fact that this young girl picked a hugely influential scientist to be her new idol is so inspiring, and we’re honestly tearing up over here.
This is exactly why sharing the stories and accomplishments of marginalized people is SO important. Look at the impact it’s already had! We couldn’t love Hidden Figures any more if we tried.
So here’s what happened. A little girl named Laya dressed up like Taraji P. Henson in Hidden Figures, and it’s basically the sweetest thing we’ve ever seen. Her mom posted a photo of her, writing,
“Laya’s most current role model, (Taraji P.Henson) Katherine Johnson. Hidden Figures aftermath.”
Just look at her! It’s so, so cute. See? This is exactly why little girls need to be able to see themselves in powerful roles on screen.
Awww! Taraji completely fangirled over the little sweetheart, and it’s SO PRECIOUS.
Our hearts honestly can’t take this level of cute! We can only imagine how excited this little one was to have Taraji send her such a loving message. We know we would be! Nothing but heart eyes for all this #girlpower going around.
Music News: Ne-Yo Announces & Previews New Album!
Ne-Yo is cookin’ up his next album, and to get the fans ready he has shared a behind-the-scenes look at a recent recording session he had with fellow R&B singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger.
Taking to his Instagram on Wednesday night, Ne-Yo posted a one-minute clip with the caption: “The process…. Much love to my dude @ericbellinger Thanx for adding to the sauce boi boi!! This album is going to be special. I promise.
For the first time in his career, the “Sexy Love” singer is working with a handful of other songwriters to enhance the process and give him a fresh take. Speaking about his decision to do so, Ne-Yo explained: “It’s not that I can’t do it myself, I can definitely do it myself, but this time I decided to bring in some folks to expand on what I already had … That’s what its about, it’s about expanding it’s about evolution, while at the same time staying true to who you are.”
Ne-Yo and Eric Bellinger have been building their working relationship more recently, but Eric is credited for penning the title song “Think Like A Man” which Ne-Yo sang along with Jennifer Hudson, for the soundtrack to the 2012 comedy Think Like A Man.
Fat Joe Signs with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Management
In a move that marks an important reconciliation between former foes, Fat Joe is joining Jay Z’s Roc Nation.
On Wednesday (Jan. 18), Don Cartagena’s publicist issued a statement on the news, calling Joey Crack’s upcoming Plata o Plomo project with Remy Ma his “first release after joining the Roc Nation management family.”
This is another sign of harmony between Jay Z and Fat Joe, following a longtime feud. Crack alluded to this on “All the Way Up (Remix),” which featured Hov and was released via TIDAL. “They ain’t wanna see the Squad and the Roc,” he rapped.
Their past differences date back to the 1990s, when a fight between Terror Squad and Roc-A-Fella reportedly broke out. Former T.S. member Cuban Link later revealed that Memphis Bleek and/or other members of the Roc initiated the infamous confrontation.
“Bleek rocked ni**as with a bottle,” he said in a 2013 interview with Forbez DVD. “Bleek rocked somebody from Terror Squad with a bottle…I’m not sure, even, if Bleek is the one who did it, but it was definitely Bleek and them. Somebody from, at the time, our camp Terror Squad, got rocked with a bottle. Ni**as came back to the V.I.P. bleeding and then after that, ni**as got it popping. Ni**as started chasing the whole Roc-A-Fella…And some other ni**as from Roc-A-Fella got hit with bottles and they got fucked up. They got chased out…Jay wasn’t even there.”
According to Cuban — who has since sparked his own feud with Fat Joe — the bad blood carried over when Big Pun and Fat Joe later met with Jay Z. “They had a little private meeting after that situation happened,” he said. “Joe and Pun went to meet [Jay] inside a room…Jay was a track star inside the room, around a couch. That’s what I know. Those are things everybody don’t know, but I know. He was by himself too…Who wouldn’t run around a couch? In Jay Z’s defense, Jay did see me one time at a DMX listening party. He came up to me…He said, ‘It was never personal.’ Even with Pun, Pun’s beef with Jay was never personal. It was more of what Joe was implicating and putting in his head. It was more jealousy towards Jay. It wasn’t even real shit where they had a situation. Joe always felt like Jay was telling Joe’s story, like he was the real ni**a and Jay was fake.”
The feud continued into the 2000s and in 2003, Joe’s Terror Squad basketball team met Hov’s S. Carter squad at the famed Rucker Park in New York. Revolt called this “one of the most infamous tournaments” ever to take place at the park, one that only heightened tensions between the two camps. A delay caused Hov to forfeit and Joe would gloat about the win on “Lean Back.”
“Kay keep tellin’ me to speak about the Rucker,” he rapped. “Matter of fact, I don’t wanna speak about the Rucker / Not even Pee Wee Kirkland could imagine this / My ni**as didn’t have to play to win the championship.”
Cooler heads have since prevailed and a truce followed when “All the Way Up (Remix)” came to fruition with the help of Memphis Bleek and Noreaga.
“I reached out to N.O.R.E, because he had a serious relationship with Memphis Bleek,” Pun told AllHipHop. “He got Bleek on the phone, and I told Bleek about the plans. He called Jay Z, and Jay Z called me back in like five minutes. He said, ‘Let’s’ do it. I can’t wait.’ The rest was history.”
Following the song’s release, Joey told Billboard why this was such an important collaboration. “It had to happen,” he said. “It was something on my bucket list forever. God blessed us and it came true. I couldn’t sleep this morning because I’m so happy for the people.”
Plata o Plomo is due Feb. 17.
Actor Miguel Ferrer Dies: ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ & ‘Crossing Jordan’ Star Was 61
The son of Oscar-winning actor Jose Ferrer and Rosemary Clooney, and cousin of George Clooney, he was set to reprise his role as FBI Agent Albert Rosenfeld on David Lynch’s revival Twin Peaks, which premieres May 21 on Showtime.
“Today, NCIS: Los Angeles lost a beloved family member,” showrunner R. Scott Gemmill said in a statement. “Miguel was a man of tremendous talent who had a powerful dramatic presence on screen, a wicked sense of humor, and a huge heart. Our thoughts go out to his wife Lori, his sons, and his entire family. He will be greatly missed.”
Ferrer joined the cast of CBS’ popular spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles in 2012, opposite Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Linda Hunt and others. He came in early on as the assistant director of NCIS and at first was a hard-as-nails unpleasant sort to the team. But during the course of the ensuing seasons, his Owen Granger warmed up to them and became a friend. There has been an ongoing mole-hunt storyline in the current eighth season of NCIS: LA, and Granger was stabbed while in police custody in the most recent episode that aired Sunday.
A veteran of 40-plus movies and scores of TV shows, Ferrer launched his career in the early 1980s with small guest shots on such series as Magnum, P.I., CHiPS and Cagney & Lacey and features including Heartbreaker, The Man Who Wasn’t There and Star Trek: III: The Search for Spock. He would go on to focus mostly on TV throughout that decade before landing the Twin Peaks role in 1990.
Ferrer is notable for his early breakout role in Paul Verhoeven’s Robocop (1987) as Bob Morton, the ambitious and sleazy corporate climber who spearheads the Robocop program to great success, only to be murdered by his envious boss.
The Santa Monica native toplined the short-lived Stephen J. Cannell-creator cop drama Broken Badges in 1991 and also starred in Lynch’s 1950s romp On the Air the following year. He appeared in a number of features during the 1990s but continued to star on short-run TV series including Fallen Angels and Al Franken’s LateLine.
In 2001, Ferrer landed a role in the NBC drama Crossing Jordan, starring opposite Hennessy’s Boston medical examiner. The show was among the top 20 in the year-end ratings for 2001-02 and remained on the air until 2007.
After that series wrapped, Ferrer starred opposite Michelle Ryan in Bionic Woman, which lasted nine episodes, co-starred with Ally Walker and Tisha Campbell-Martin in the LAPD drama The Protector in 2011. But his next role, in NCIS: LA, would be his biggest.
Ferrer also was an accomplished drummer before turning to acting. He played in bands, toured with his mother and Bing Crosby and recorded with the Who’s Keith Moon.
Ferrer is survived by his wife Lori, sons Lukas and Rafi and his brothers and sisters.

Mariah Carey speaks about Prince: ‘He was just one of a kind’
Mariah Carey opens up about her friendship with late singer Prince.
During tonight’s episode of “Mariah’s World,” the 46-year-old takes the stage in Paris after learning about the late icon’s shocking passing, admitting she didn’t know if she’d be able to “make it through” the performance.
“I’m not sure if everybody has heard the news yet that we lost one of the greatest, most incredible geniuses that we’ve ever had in music,” Carey can be heard telling the crowd. “He was just one of a kind and just so amazing and I didn’t know if I was gonna be able to come out here and put on a show and be festive.”
Minutes later — after it appears that the songstress took a minute to get her thoughts together, she realized that when in Paris, the only thing to do would be to carry on — after all, “that’s what Prince would want me to do,” she said. “I think he would want me to get through it.”
“He was a friend to me too and he talked me through [things when] I really, really needed somebody,” she shared with her audience. So, to honor her late, close confidante, the “Infinity” singer asked the audience to join her in a moment of silence for her “incredible” friend.
Previously reported, though the tragic death of Prince Rogers Nelson is still fresh on the minds of many fans, the Purple Rain star passed away at 10:07 a.m. on April 21, 2016 at his Paisley Park home. He was 57. Despite rumors of drug addiction — even AIDS — the singer’s death certificate cites that he did indeed die of a Fentanyl overdose.
Since his passing, those closest to him, including his protégée, Judith Hill, have shared words of love for a friend who uplifted them. “There was a very intense relationship. I deeply cared for him,” Hill told the New York Times at the time, revealing that before his tragic passing, “He told me that he loved me and that he would always be there for me.”

Carmelo Anthony On The Knicks: “If They Feel Like My Time In New York Is Over, Then It’s Time to Talk”
Could Carmelo Anthony’s time with the New York Knicks be coming to an end? The NBA star finally speaks.
Last week, in a news article written by someone claiming to be close to Phil Jackson, it was rumored that Carmelo Anthony is willing to waive the no-trade clause in his contract in an attempt to leave New York for the Clippers or Cavs. However, Carmelo Anthony has never said this and the comments come without proof or merit.
Charley Rosen, the writer and former assistant coach under Jackson, also wrote, “The only sure thing is that Carmelo Anthony has outlived his usefulness in New York.”
It was only a matter of time before Carmelo was asked about these comments, to which he replied, “If that’s the case than that’s what’s coming from that side I guess it’s a conversation we should have. If they feel like my time in New York is over I guess that’s a conversation we should have.”
Despite being made aware that the comments did not come from Jackson himself, it appears Carmelo is very clear on the messenger’s close relationship to the Knicks president.
“Listen,” Anthony said, “if that’s what they feel … if that’s what’s coming from that side that’s what’s coming from that side. I haven’t thought once about that to be honest with you. I hear it. I hear all the rhetoric that’s going on out there and I still come to work every day and play and bust my ass and try not to worry about it.”
In conclusion, Carmelo is adamant that he has no desire to leave New York. “I’ve never even thought about that,” he added. “I guess people are talking about it but it’s not something I’ve thought about so far.”
