Since the conclusion of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 6 the rumor mill has been buzzing regarding the return of Porsha Williams and NeNe Leakes to the show for another season.

Earlier this month Leakes, the show’s breakout star, posted a cryptic tweet alluding to a possible departure, however recently she gave an update to Life and Style magazine as she revealed her demands for a raise from Bravo’s top rated series in addition to her displeasure over last season.

“All of us deserve a raise,” she declared to the weekly glossy. “I haven’t asked for more money yet, but I damn sure plan to!”

“Everybody has been invited back, but I don’t know exactly what I’m doing. This past season was very dark and toxic; there was a lot of negativity. I just don’t want to work with so much negativity.”

The 46-year-old’s latest salary request comes a year following her widely reported $1 million pay increase, which crowned the reality star as the “highest paid” Housewife, according to Radar Online. And while, Leakes has admitted that everyone has been invited back for the show’s 7th season, Williams has remained open to returning to the show despite reports of being fired.
