Jill Kelley: Is She A Social Climber?
Some people have speculated that Jill Kelley is a social climber who apparently enjoys a lifestyle. INSIDE EDITION reports on Kelley’s lifestyle and reports that she is in debt.
Living large but drowning in debt.
That's the description being applied to Jill Kelley, the beauty linked to the David Petraeus sex scandal.
Jill Zarin is a former Real Housewives of New York star who now runs a successful jewelry design business. She knows many women like Jill Kelley, whose glossy lifestyle is not all it appears to be.
"A lot of people like to fake it until they make it," said Zarin.
INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent asked, "You've been around these people who feel this pressure to, at least, put on a show."
"They do, because they want to fit into a certain group and a cettain lifestyle. So, it costs money. There's a certain peer pressure," said Zarin.
Who could forget Michaele and Tareq Salahi, the notorious White House gate-crashers. They lived larged but in reality, they battled claims of unpaid bills, and filed for bankruptcy for one of their businesses.
Tareq told INSIDE EDITION, "This is Washington D.C. This is what happens in this city. This city can swallow you up real quick. Just like it did for us. Just like it's happening now for Jill Kelley and General Petraeus."
On Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa and Joe Giudice seemed to have it all. But the couple filed for bankruptcy, with debts of almost $11 million.
On Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Taylor and Russell Armstrong also lived a flashy lifestyle. But Russell hanged himself after going into debt for $1.5 million.
Trent said, "There seems to be this culture of pretenders."
Zarin said, "Well, yes. I think the Housewives is just a sampling of what's really going on out there. It's real life."
