Robyn Dixon of the Real Housewives of Potomac is openingÂ up to OK MagazineÂ about learning the hard way that ‘money doesnâ€™t always buy you happinessâ€™.
Dixon explains that her bankruptcy happened 2.5 years ago and she is still feeling the affects of it today.
â€œIâ€™m back on track,â€ Dixon, 36, revealed about her current finances. â€œItâ€™s not perfect. Itâ€™s not where I want it. We are still dealing with repercussions from everything thatâ€™s happened to us.â€
â€œWhen you hear someone has filed for bankruptcy, people picture people in the casinos just like throwing money in the air,â€ she explained. â€œNo, thatâ€™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 couldnâ€™t.â€
Dixon talks about it is a rebuilding process of getting her life and money back on track.
â€œSo right now, itâ€™s a building process,â€ she added. â€œYou donâ€™t recover overnight. But as long as you stay strong and positive, it will all work out eventually.â€
Even with all the stress and aggravation Dixon has gone through she still believes there is a silver lining in all of this.
â€œWhat doesnâ€™t kill you, makes you stronger,â€ she said. â€œVery clichÃ©, but having money when you are young and fresh out college, it honestly means nothing. You donâ€™t learn real life until youâ€™re actually kind of faced with some kind of struggle or hardship.â€
â€œI appreciate everything that Iâ€™ve gone through because I think itâ€™s made me a more well-rounded person,â€ 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.
â€œOur office is in D.C., but I am allowed to work from home,â€ she added. â€œI do go into the office on a weekly regular basis as well.â€
â€œIn the PR kind of world, you have more meetings out in the field with clients and at site visits,â€ she explained. â€œSo 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.â€
