90 Day Fiance fans took notice when Danielle Mullins Jbali started begging them for cash.
They wondered why a reality star would have to crowdfund $5,000. Aren’t they normally loaded?
Not so much when it comes to 90 Day Fiance, unfortunately.
As we previously reported and as RadarOnline has confirmed, most of the stars are only paid a little.
And it turns out that some of the people you see appear on the TLC series aren’t paid at all for their trouble.
If you’ve wondered why these stars create GoFundMe accounts, charge for videos, or work minimum wage jobs — this is why.
1. Danielle Mullins is asking fans for cash
She needs to raise $5,000, she says, or risk losing the trailer that is currently her home.
2. Danielle has a lot of fans; it could work
Despite her controversial role on the show — where some saw her and Mohamed Jbali as a pair of villains who deserve each other — she could raise the funds.
3. But why does she need the money?
She says that it’s because she’s in negotiations with the landlord of her trailer park over past due rent, and that she may need to pay to have her home moved elsewhere if she’s evicted.
4. She promises that she hasn’t misspent her 90 Day Fiance funds
“I bought my home, bought appliances, did some repairs to the home, paid for a STNA class, put a down payment on a newer car . It was not spent foolishly. I have not received a tv show check in a year,” Danielle wrote on social media.
5. So how much did she have to begin with?
We don’t know — but she wasn’t raking in the dough in the way that Real Housewives or even Honey Boo-Boo’s family does.
6. Remember David and Annie?
There was a creepy episode of 90 Day Fiance when David’s friend asked Annie for a “massage.” There’s more context but it only makes it worse. The fallout from that revealed a lot about how 90 Day Fiance operates.
