Good news for NeNe Leakes. Last summer, the IRS slapped a federal lien on her saying she owed $824,366.01 in unpaid taxes.

On January 17,  2017, according to paperwork obtained by TheDirty, she paid off every penny!

Yes, Leakes in recent years has made serious mounds of cash. She has an HSN fashion line, she’s a regular on E!’s “Fashion Police” and has appeared on ABC’s “To Tell the Truth.”

Leakes left the show after seven seasons but did make a brief appearance season eight. She has not appeared in season nine as of yet.

As expected, Kim Zolciak-Biermann appears on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” later this season for the first time since season 5, when she left in a huff – and the promise of a spin-off show.

Zolciak-Biermann recently finished five seasons of her spin off “Don’t Be Tardy.”

Speaking of both Biermann and Leakes, Bravo would love them back on “Real Housewives” for season 10, according to TMZ.

Wendy Williams on her talk show recommended that Leakes leave RHOA behind, even if the money is good.

“Never hated you, girl. I think you made more of a thing between me and you than there really was,” she said. “Here’s my deal. You don’t go back to [Real Housewives of] Atlanta. That is stepping down. You built that kingdom. What you need is your own show.”

The growing rift between Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks has not closed since “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season ended.

Burruss dissed Parks while guest hosting on “The Real,” saying that she has no story line, she has no boyfriend and she’s not getting much work done. Ouch! Rolling Out provided this exchange from the Feb. 3 show:

Jeannie Mai: We were cruising your Facebook page when we found this little gem posted a preview of an upcoming episode of “The Real” Housewives of Atlanta. J-Mar Vaton Tymes wrote, “So over Kandi and her rude behavior. She doing anything for a paycheck and keep using Phaedra name as a storyline.” Kandi, do you want to hit reply on that?

Kandi Burruss: Oh gosh. I want to hit reply on that, but they’re going to be mad. [Laughs.] OK, first and foremost, sweetheart I mean come on, I mean, I don’t have to do anything for a paycheck. I get multiple paychecks. Can we google first?

KB: If you gonna come at me with a diss, let it be something that makes sense. So I don’t have to do anything for a paycheck, but then also the whole thing about using Phaedra as a storyline, uh, what’s her storyline? If it wasn’t for, you know, the stuff that’s going on between me, her or my family or whatever — the things that you know, we say and she says about us, what is her storyline? I don’t see a boyfriend, I don’t see any work getting done. I don’t see nothing [sic]. I saw one charity event, but other than that, it’s like a friend of the show at this point.

JM: And we keep it real here at “The Real.”
