She was about to embrace an existence only dreams offer a glimpse of. Yet by some miracle, and despite early skepticism from supermodel host Tyra Banks, it had all paid off… What Adrianne Curry never foresaw back in were all the caveats, broken promises, and pitfalls of reality TV notoriety.
The night of her epic victory, she never could have predicted what lay ahead. That would include a turbulent marriage to a former child star almost twice her age…which would end in divorce. The couple is content curling up with their fur babies and working from home.
He was quite active in the gaming world when they first met and currently does a ton of voice-over work. As she told Casey, not long ago she was around number 28 among Avon sellers nationwide. Following is the casual conversation that Adrianne and I had for Huffington Post: Nobody knew what the hell they were doing and it ended up as great TV!
A post shared by Adrianne Curry adriannecurry on Dec 18, at 7: I know that from being married to a former child star. I greatly appreciated your rawness and candor on those shows. You guys seemed like relatable pals rather than unrelatable aspiring models! Unfortunately, Elyse and I had an immediate falling out.
She was the runner-up who was…Miss Jesus! You and Elyse were hilarious to watch and seemed to have a bond that would last past the season. I know she went to the Hong Kong market and was modeling there and I mean, good for her for taking over a shitty market somewhere! That falling out was my first lesson in the backstabbing and treachery of the industry.
I had told her a whole bunch of my business in confidence. So as you told Kate Casey, that was all you needed to accept the opportunity. Want to hear something funny and fucked up? I think that my ex and I finding people our own age was exactly what we needed. He just found his the second we decided to split…and mine took 4 years to come After that, we tuned in to see you two on My Fair Brady. I was madly madly in love for what I was capable of loving then - with all my heart. I was able to at least walk away and say he was a good businessman and I respect all that he can do.
I am a really loyal person who is not looking at other people during relationships. When did you move from California? We were together 7 years.
I believe he still lives in our old house with his 4th wife. I left him and moved out in August, Man, it was an uncomfortable feeling for sure! I remember people coming over to me and crying…and all sorts of things. A post shared by Adrianne Curry adriannecurry on Dec 15, at 7: I once looked at my grandma who raised me and said that if I could sell fame to make us money, I would kiss it goodbye in two seconds.
If it was sellable, I would have sold that fame a long time ago. Did the television and TV-related opportunities you had help your family financially? He came from a family that made him work as a kid while his mom was a stage mom and his daddy lived off his dime. They took his money and spent it all on themselves.
I mean, I would take everyone out to pizza and then be stuck with a huge bill because everyone left and my really close friends were livid about it. Tell them to fuck off. I think once — ONLY once - when I was 23 or 24, I was standing in line for something and I said the ugliest thing that had ever come out of my mouth!
The first thing I thought was that my grandma would be sickened with me. The number one thing I learned was about the fear of irrelevance. I wore baggy Nine Inch Nails shirts and no makeup. You have a body?! It was me and Shannon the goody two-shoes. It was all really affecting me. Luckily though, my family came together and were able to do it. My ability to be successful as a human being and not be a fuck up and have had the success that I had?
Only recently because I was a fixture in the nerd world for quite a while. He was making some decent money streaming videos on Twitch. I love the privacy I have now. We moved to a retirement town where people are not as privy when it comes to TV and all that stuff.
People still recognize me, but not as much and my perspective has changed. Back in the Hollywood days, I had stalkers, restraining orders There was one woman who would drive two hours to and from my home to sit outside waiting for me to come out. I had to chase her out of my garage with a shovel. A post shared by Adrianne Curry adriannecurry on Dec 11, at 3: We met while I was streaming Hearthstone, a videogame, on twitch.
He played video games for a living and we had a lot in common. We went on 7 dates before we even kissed! A post shared by Adrianne Curry adriannecurry on Dec 22, at 7: However, I know it ties in to your personal Avon story. How did that come about? We came out here for about 8 months and I had a tumor on my uterus. It ended up being benign, but I had major surgery and watched Edward Scissorhands while I was high as a kite on Percocet. There was an Avon lady in the movie. While I was totally loopy and out of it watching, I apparently went online and signed up for an Avon kit.
So, I started selling Avon. Now I get to work from home and I want to have elves and moose in my yard…. A post shared by Adrianne Curry adriannecurry on Dec 18, at 2: And to those who are currently on or have just started reality TV, like new Real Housewives?
Ask yourself how much of your soul you're willing to give up for fame. Realize that half - if not more of the people you meet after gaining TV fame - are coattail riders and opportunists. Anything you do or say will be thrown in your face in 15 years…in your children's faces If fame means more to you than these things, do it up!
