ATL Housewives

Re-Volt Over Electric Bills

12/12/2009 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak are locked in a stand-off with the people at "Real Housewives of Atlanta"-- and we're told it's partly due to a power struggle over their electric bill.



Sources close to the ladies tell TMZ both women are in the midst of contract negotiations with Bravo for next season -- and a major point of contention is the electric bill. We're told the ladies are sick of having to pay giant electric bills out of their own pocket after the show tapes at their homes and drains tons of juice from their sockets.

We're also told the women are demanding an upgrade in travel arrangement -- because they're tired of having to use their own airline miles to upgrade from the coach seats provided by the show.

There are more demands -- including stipends for wardrobe, hair and make-up.

Calls to Bravo were not immediately returned.

Hey Bravo get rid all so called "reality shows".... I am burned out on them...Have some balls to have talent do scripted shows. These rich "skanks" of all these "Housewives" needs quit living off their sugar daddies. Here's an idea for a show "Hoes of Tigers" so the 13 and counting can fight over the schumck, Tiger... and Elin can take him to the cleaners.

Give 'em what they want Bravo. Without these two there would be no point to watch the Atlanta "Real Housewives" series. In fact, the entire set of each respective Housewives series should be entitled to what they are asking for. This seems like a rather basic and reasonable expectation of compensation.

There is nothing first class about these heifers, so it shouldn't matter where they ride. I am tired of these broke, phony "housewives." And Nene is one of the most unattractive women that I've ever seen - with makeup. How can her husband stand that?

Nee Nee is the main one people tune into watch. The other ones don't have a personality that jumps from the screen, (bad or good) like Nee.

Bravo, pay your bills, give them some wig money and stop indulging all of Andy Cohen's whims about becoming a tv start himself.

Nene is a no class, loud mouth nothing, I would let the whole show go. The only one that is real is Candi.

They are on a reality show with cameras around them all the time. They entertain me quite well and makes me so happy I'm not them. So give in to their demands, it's the least the network can do for making so much off of them.

They could quit!! They get paid a lot of money for ????. Now they think they are stars. Bravo needs to replace them and then maybe they will all quit with the threats. When they did the last show with Andy they all decided not to talk about anything personal..so it was an hour of nothing, Kim singing her 'song' that enough of you idiots bought that she thinks she can sing now...good god!
