Robyn Dixon of the Real Housewives of Potomac is opening up to OK Magazine about learning the hard way that ‘money doesn’t always buy you happiness’.
Dixon explains that her bankruptcy happened 2.5 years ago and she is still feeling the affects of it today.
“I’m back on track,” Dixon, 36, revealed about her current finances. “It’s not perfect. It’s not where I want it. We are still dealing with repercussions from everything that’s happened to us.”
“When you hear someone has filed for bankruptcy, people picture people in the casinos just like throwing money in the air,” she explained. “No, that’s not what happened. There are clear reasons why we went through what we went through, and some things we could avoid. Some things we couldn’t.”
Dixon talks about it is a rebuilding process of getting her life and money back on track.
“So right now, it’s a building process,” she added. “You don’t recover overnight. But as long as you stay strong and positive, it will all work out eventually.”
Even with all the stress and aggravation Dixon has gone through she still believes there is a silver lining in all of this.
“What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger,” she said. “Very cliché, but having money when you are young and fresh out college, it honestly means nothing. You don’t learn real life until you’re actually kind of faced with some kind of struggle or hardship.”
“I appreciate everything that I’ve gone through because I think it’s made me a more well-rounded person,” she continued.
Now Dixon is focusing her life on being a Real Housewife, as well as a publicist for TAA PR in Washington D.C.
“Our office is in D.C., but I am allowed to work from home,” she added. “I do go into the office on a weekly regular basis as well.”
“In the PR kind of world, you have more meetings out in the field with clients and at site visits,” she explained. “So I have a very flexible job, which I appreciate as a mother with two kids. I want to be there for my children as well.”
