Candiace Dillard wants Bravo to give her that coin!
The Real Housewives of Potomac star felt that since she was a part of the main storyline for season 5, she deserved a big fat raise for season 6.
However, Bravo disagreed. According to Tamara Tattles, Bravo contracts are pretty standard across the board. For every season you are asked back, you get a 10% raise. Sometimes, Bravo will give in to salary increase demands if they deem the Housewife worthy of it.
Bravo didn’t think Candiace deserved more than the standard 10% salary increase for season 6, which didn’t make the former beauty queen turned reality star happy. She had her attorney negotiate with the network, which didn’t do much to help the situation.
She then decided to take a page out of NeNe Leakes’ book and sit out the first few filming days for season 6.
Days into her hissy fit, Candiace finally came to her senses and signed her season 6 contract when she realized she was losing money by the day.
It turns out this isn’t the only drama going down in Candiace’s life. TT also reports that Candiace may have “cash flow issues” as she asked Bravo to advance her first episode paycheck early.
Bravo did oblige as they follow a set schedule to pay their stars; checks are delivered either on the first or the fifteenth of the month.
It seems like Candiace may have bitten off more than she can chew with the purchase of her new $1 million home in Upper Marlboro, MD. She’s also currently still on the hook for her four-story townhouse, located in Oxon Hill, Maryland, which she recently put on the market for $799,000.
RHOP is expected to return to Bravo in mid-to-late 2021.
