This was very rough on her relationship with her now husband. Before the wedding in 2019, financial hardship had met the early stages of their romance. Brittany was still living in her hometown in Kentucky when she decided to pack up and move out to El Lay because flying back and forth to see her husband was getting too much. expensive The 44-year-old Bravo the star said of his wife:
“It cost her. This is the beginning of the show and it cost her between $800 and $900. She was in Kentucky [working at a bar and Hooters] and $800 is a lot of money [to spend on airfare].”
Just a few months into their relationship, the couple tried to make long distance work but struggled due to the extra costs:
“It was like three months in. Because I had to work, I was going back and forth to see you. I was at work for a week and then I would see you next week. It was like two months. “
In fact, by 2019, Jax was rumored to be the highest paid cast member on the show — but back in the beginning, this was a real struggle for them! Everything that flies and travels, it is not surprising that she decided to make the big move. Given how big a role she had in season four, it’s wild that they insisted they paid her anything for her time!
Brittany and Jax aren’t the first to open up about it VPRperhaps lack of paychecks. last month, Kristen Doute published on the Good morning podcast to host Josh Peck she only got about $10,000 for a whole year as a lump sum:
“Season one, we made $10,000. It was actually $5,000, and then they added like, $5,000 more.”
While he was in 2019 on the Juicy juice podcast, Jax said he did a little more than that — and got some extra promotions and deals, too:
“It was $15,000 to do the whole season. They were giving us a lot. There were incentives and right off the bat I was getting promotions and deals and things like that. “
Damn! The difference in viewpoints from the women and Jax is quite revealing, to say the least.
