The Real Housewives of Potomac star Robyn Dixon filed for bankruptcy in 2013, Radar Online reported. Dixon alleged that she was in $217,000 of debt and only made about $2,000 a month at the time. Her debts included $28,372 in car payments for her 2011 Volkswagen that was later repossessed, $16,577 to American Express, $10,871 to Discover, and around $3,000 to Bloomingdale’s. Her bankruptcy was reportedly discharged in 2014, when she was required to enroll in credit counseling — and to pay $16,183 in years of back taxes to the IRS.
She later told OK! magazine of her financial trouble, “When you hear someone has filed for bankruptcy, people picture people in the casinos just like, throwing money in the air,” adding, “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.” She didn’t specify what any of those things were.
