What is more shocking to me is high number of real estate agents on the show who've been hit. There's Playboy Playmate Jeana Keough who had notices of defaults filed on 3 of her 4 properties! And then Tamra Barney who shortsaled her own house after slashing her house 30%. Lisa Wu Hartnell of Atlanta lost her $2.9M house to the bank for a mere $1.9M. All of them are agents!
One real estate agent housewife they didn't mention was Gretchen Rossi of Orange County. (Fun fact: Gretchen, Slade & I were classmates during a weekend workshop. They actually were really nice.)
Just goes to show that even if you are an agent (much less a reality TV starlet), it doesn't mean you're impervious to the real estate mess. The problem with "Keeping up with the Jones" mentality is that there will always be someone richer & prettier than you. It's a never ending self-inflicted psychological game. Be grateful for what you have & live within your means.
See how your favorite housewives dealt with what so many other Americans are going thru here. Good luck ladies! I feel ya.
