Cortney may lack the fake tan, designer clothes and extensions characteristic of the typical Princess, but beneath the crunchy façade there lurks a royal pain who takes advantage of friends and family to fund a lifestyle that is well beyond her means. Cortney has a “relaxed” attitude towards money – especially other people’s – and her philosophy of “It all comes out in the wash” is rubbing friends and family the wrong way. Deep down, Cortney’s worried that she can’t afford the life she wants, so she continues to have others pay for it while she can.
On the cusp of her 30th birthday, Cortney suspects that her dreams for the future may be permanently on unless she can finally clean up her financial mistakes. Host Gail Vaz-Oxlade tackles Cortney’s biggest misconceptions about money, and shows her the potential damage she’s doing to her future by refusing to take control of her finances.
