“Although it was difficult for me to commit to being a cast member full-time, producers allowed me to join the show as a guest Housewife. They would also work with my schedule.

She went on to openly discuss Paddy’s views on her new venture and said, “Let’s just let it be known that it did not go down well at my home.” Patrick wanted me not to appear in the public eye. Patrick didn’t even want me to be on this program.

He thought that it was all about glitter and glamour and showing off wealth. Which is very far from my daily life.

“And it was not quite the right fit. I don’t have a glamourous life, and I don’t go to fancy parties and shop for Chanel bags every day. That’s the Housewives reputation.”
