“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks has been filming the show for a couple of years now and she has shared some aspects of her life. Recently, she has been keeping a low profile because she has been making headlines about her husband's supposed fraud charges. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Feb. 26, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks is now revealing that she wants to get paid like a movie star to film the show.
Of course, NeNe Leakes reportedly got $1 million for filming this previous season, but given all the legal issues that she is going through, it appears that she wants more money to keep sharing her story on the show. She has revealed that some aspects of the show are scripted, which means that she thinks that she should get paid like one.
“We’re not members of SAG so it’s not like we’re getting benefits from replays," Phaedra pointed out. "We’re talents that aren’t being considered as actors, so they're getting talent for a nominal fee. They've found a way to make money and cut the cost on studios and productions so they’re making the largest profit with the least amount of residual.”
Phaedra believes that she doesn’t get much more money compared to how much the show actually makes. Do you think she should get paid like a real actress?
