Remini secures a ‘King’-size salary

“King of Queens” star Leah Remini will get a princely sum for the eighth season of the show. After weeks of sometime strenuous negotiations, Remini has renewed for one more year of the CBS comedy, essentially tripling her salary in the process, insiders familiar with the situation said. It’s believed Remini will now collect a weekly paycheck in the same ballpark as the $400,000-plus per episode that co-star Kevin James will be making next season for his acting services. (James also gets paid for his role as a producer on the show). With megahits like “Friends,” “Frasier” and “Everybody Loves Raymond” now gone, James and Remini are now believed to be among the highest paid – if not the highest paid – actors working on network television. Matt LeBlanc is making serious coin for his work on NBC’s “Joey,” while it would figure that at least two of the Eye’s “Two and a Half Men” might snag big raises from Warner Bros. TV once the show is sold into syndication. (There’s no evidence any such raises are in the works.)
