Tamar Braxton joining the cast of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta is no longer a rumor - it now looks LIKELY!! And it appears that her fellow Housewives are going to be asked to foot the bill for Tamar's giant paycheck.

MTO News spoke exclusively with a  high level executive at Bravo who told us that they are actively looking to bring Tamar onto the Bravo hit series.

Tamar's contract with WE TV (home of her reality show The Braxtons) is up after the current season, and Bravo is trying to bring her onto their network.

Bravo doing everything in their power to bring Tamar onto the show - including money.

MTO news learned that the Bravo executives have spoken to Kandi, Nene, Porsha and the rest of the housewives expected to return next season, and asked them all to take a pay cut.

The Bravo exec explained, "We're asking the [Atlanta housewives] to take less money so that we can revamp the cast. They're working with us, but everyone will have to chip in to give Tamar a compelling offer."

Tamar is expected to become the highest paid Atlanta Housewife if she accepts her offer. And that's saying a lot. The current highest paid housewife Nene Leakes, makes about $5,000,000 a season.
