Nene Leakes is reportedly demanding a pay increase ahead of production on the upcoming 13th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

After admitting that she's not yet decided on whether or not she will return to Bravo for the new episodes amid her ongoing drama with Kenya Moore, Leakes has allegedly made it clear to the network that if they want her to come back to the reality series for season 13, they are going to have to increase her salary.

Leakes “doesn’t feel like she’s getting the love or the money she deserves” an insider told Life & Style magazine in their latest issue, according to a report shared by All About the Real Housewives on March 10.

As one of the original cast members of _The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Leakes knows how valuable she is to the series and after hearing about the "astronomical" amount Bethenny Frankel was being paid for her time on The Real Housewives of New York City, Leakes is determined to get "what's hers."

Leakes reportedly earned a whopping $2.85 million for the 12th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta but she doesn't feel that the amount will cut it for season 13 and if Bravo doesn't agree, Life & Style's insider said “she isn’t coming back.”

Leakes appeared in a full-time position for the first seven seasons of the Bravo reality show and made a guest appearance during season eight.

She then reclaimed her full-time position for season 10 and has maintained the role ever since.

During Moore's appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen weeks ago, Leakes sent out a tweet in which she asked Cohen to question her co-star about why she had claimed she was being phased out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta during the show's 12th season.

“I guess she would need to ask Bravo why they’re cutting her out of many episodes this season. I’m not the one behind the editing and figuring out the show,” Moore responded to the inquiry.

Although there have been rumors claiming season 12 will be the last for Leakes, Cohen denied Moore's claim regarding Leakes supposedly being phased out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

“I don’t think she’s being cut out of episodes because I think everything that was shot with NeNe is in the show. We’re not cutting anything out,” Cohen explained.

Moore claimed Leakes was being "phased out" after Leakes was absent during a number of episodes of the currently airing season.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 12 airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
