The reality television business is booming, which is why the genre is so popular currently. More than that, reality stars are cashing out.
The salaries of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta‘s cast have been leaked, and these stars are making some serious coins.
According to InTouchWeekly, Joseline Hernandez was the highest paid star on the series… Until she quit, of course. The mom-of-one was raking in an annual salary of $400,000 per season.
If you miss her on television, have no fear. The Puerto Rican Princess is slated to head back on a small screen near you. Produced by The Mane Event producer Carlos King, Joseline Takes Miami will focus on her juggling life as a single mother with her desire to advance her music career. According to Hernandez herself, who spoke to HipHollywood earlier this year, the show will find her working with a “talented array of Latin artists” in attempts to launch herself onto the charts.
Speaking of Stevie J’s exes… Mimi Faust allegedly makes over $100,000 per season. The 48-year-old is an original cast member on the Atlanta branch of Love & Hip Hop, one of the only ones to stay through the entire series.
She typically doesn’t make too many waves. The mom simply raises her and Stevie’s six-year-old daughter Eva Giselle Jordan.
Another original cast member, Karlie Redd, is said to make $50,000 per season. The star’s salary might go up soon, as the drama from her relationship with Sean Garret is sure to be juicy. Rumors that the writer of songs like Usher’s “Yeah!” and Beyoncé’s “Get Me Bodied” would join the LHHATL cast started in February of this year, originating from The Jasmine Brand.
Nothing has been officially announced yet though.
Since Joseline left the show that made her a star, someone else took her spot as the highest paid on the show. Rasheeda and Kirk Frost are now the two cast members earning the most cash off of Mona Scott’s production team. What’s the price of sharing the interworkings of a marriage with the world?
Rasheeda and Kirk, who are still in the midst of a highly publicized cheating situation, are reported to pull in about $300,000 respectively. Kirk makes 300 racks per season, while Rasheeda makes $25k person episode, adding up to the same amount as her husband.
Back in March, viewers watched as Kirk sat with Rasheeda to reveal that he has a baby by another women. “The results did come back, and it is me,” Kirk told his wife. Rasheeda, who has been married to Kirk for nearly 19 years, quietly took a deep breath, before calling Kirk’s actions “careless” and “selfish.”
“Not only some ol f**king girl, now it’s a child, a innocent child. Can you move in? Nah,” Rasheeda continued to Kirk. “But it ain’t even about me. It’s about our kids.” The Pressed boutique owner went on to say that the children they have together look at Kirk like “Man of the Year,” before telling Kirk that they deserve better from him.
The last salaries to be leaked were Tommie Lee’s and Lil Scrappy’s.
Tommie Lee, who joined the show during its fifth season as a supporting character, recently leveled up to a main attraction. With her promotion, she’s said to be getting paid $17,000 person season.
Meanwhile, Lil Scrappy — who has given hip-hop tracks like “Money in the Bank” and “No Problem” — is allegedly pulling in $200,000 per season. He’s been a part of the ATL crew for all seven seasons, so you can do that math.
