Will you lend a hand?
Reality TV can’t pay the bills forever, as Bad Girls Club alum Danielle Victor is learning. She’s come up a little short just at the start of 2018. However, her 200 thousand Twitter followers have to be good for something, right? Danni V set out to make her social media followers good for something by asking all of Twitter to help her pay her rent.
“Guys, rent is due in 1 day and I have $10 to my name, haven’t worked in 5 months, can’t land a TV gig, haven’t been on a date date in over a year, I’ve been sick since Christmas Eve, like I need 2018 to come through and bless my whole life because I can’t,” she wrote.
She elaborated on exactly how deep in the hole she is in a later post.
“I’m exactly $4,859 short on my bills including rent that’s $1700. If anyone following me loves me my paypal is [email protected],” she explained. “Help Danni be great again.”
Society always look at people asking for help a little sideways. That goes double for people who have been on TV. For some reason, a stint on a reality TV show makes the fact that they’re broke more offensive to people than the poverty of the beggar on the street. So, the negative comments started to flow in Danni’s direction almost immediately.
“And if anyone wondering if I’m serious, the answer is yes,” she said. “No one knows half the sh*t I’ve been through 2017 or why I didn’t ‘manage’ my expenses. So if you talk sh*t get blocked. Other than that donate or don’t.”
She told her followers that she doesn’t feel good having to ask for a hand. “For a minute I’ve been feeling unsuccessful and like a loser but before I lost all my money I was pretty spoiled, reality check,” she said. “Hate being broke and I hate asking for help but sometimes you have to ask for it.”
The fact that her problems were coming at a time when people are generally in a celebratory mood wasn’t lost on Danni.
“Hard to even enjoy NYE when nothing is lined up for the new year. Like sure let’s toss and get drunk tonight and cheers to the fact rent won’t be paid tomorrow,” she continued. “Exactly what I feel like doing.”
She started to push back against people who took the opportunity to kick her while she’s down with quote tweets of her request for help.
“Dudes like you make me laugh, be the first to RT someone you don’t know to make yourself feel better,” she said to one hater. “Don’t know what I’ve been through or that I never ask any1 for favors so take your and shove it right up your but hole and get the f*ck out of my notifications.”

“People are so mad I said I was broke publicly. Like I really get half of America so bent out of shape,” she continued.
Even though she hasn’t paid her rent as of publication, Danni is finding some inspiration to hopefully pull herself through. “Looking forward to an Amanda Bynes comeback this year. If she can turn her life around, so can I,” she said.
