NeNe Leakes misses out on $240K in Bravo paydays … as her row with Kenya Moore appears to be costing her money

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 52, is upset after she was omitted from a pair of episodes of the Bravo series, costing her $240,000 in salary, a source told Radar Monday.

‘NeNe says she feels like she is being targeted by the show producers and she was intentionally cut out of two episodes, losing $120,000 per episode,’ a source told the outlet.

Leakes ‘has not appeared on four episodes so far, but she was paid for the first two’ the insider said.

Her rift with Moore led producers to not invite her to Bravocon, the network’s New York City-based convention held this past November, ‘because they wanted Kenya there and they didn’t want a fight.’

Leakes, who’s appeared on Broadway and been a regular on the TV shows Glee and The New Normal, is very upset about the way Bravo has handled the situation.

‘She really feels like they are doing her dirty,’ the source told the outlet, ‘and she is very frustrated.’

A source previously told the outlet that network officials have not been evenhanded in dealing with the two stars: ‘Kenya gets away with murder time and time again and NeNe gets all of the criticism.’

Despite the hard feelings, ‘show execs do not want NeNe to leave,’ as she remains ‘the driving factor in ratings’ amid her three-year, $2.85 million contract, the source said.

Adding to the speculation is that Leakes recently retained the services of Lisa Bloom.

Happy i now have @lisabloomesq on my team!’ the reality star said in an Instagram post last week. ‘I’ve stay quiet a long time and gathered info along the way. Now I’m gonna make some noise #waitforit #unfair in confidence.’

Bloom told Radar of hiring Leakes, ‘While our conversation is confidential, I encourage everyone to stand up for their rights.’
