‘RHONYC’ Star Brynn Whitfield’s Eviction, IRS Debt, and Financial Struggles Revealed
Real Housewives of New York City star Brynn Whitfield flaunts luxe life on screen, but behind the scenes, she’s grappling with financial woes just like the rest of us.
Bravo’s fresh face, Brynn Whitfield, 36, isn’t as luxurious as she seems. RadarOnline.com uncovers a history of fiscal fumbles, including a looming $30k in state and federal tax debts. The Big Apple isn’t always sweet, she once risked eviction after skipping out on a staggering $7,000 rent bill.
In 2013, Brynn Whitfield inked a one-year lease and stuck to the terms, but when her landlord transitioned her to a monthly lease at $2,500 a pop, things took a sour turn. By August 2014, an eviction notice landed on her doorstep, citing her and her supposed subtenants. Court documents presented by the landlord allege that Brynn had unpaid dues lingering from as far back as July 2013, and for the months of October, November, and December.
Brynn lagged behind on her payments from the early months of 2014, as reported by The Sun. Fast forward to October, and the landlord was knocking on the court’s door, seeking a “final judgment against Brynn and her subtenants, Jane and John Doe.” The plea? An eviction warrant and a claim for all unpaid rent. Ultimately, the judge directed the Bravo star to settle her outstanding debt for her posh Upper East Side residence.
After a shocking summer report, it seems the reality star’s money troubles run deeper than viewers thought. Los Angeles county officials have verified that Brynn has tax hangovers from recent years. She owes around $28k, split between a $11,359 state tax lien from 2021 and an IRS pinch of $16,487 from 2019. RadarOnline.com is actively seeking statements from both Brynn and the network.
Bravo’s season 14 sensation has quite the resume behind the drama. Outside the glitz and glamour of the show, Brynn is a force in the brand marketing and communications industry. Operating as an independent marketing communications consultant, she once took the lead in PR after earning her Bachelor’s degree in Communication-Public Relations & Advertising from Purdue University in 2008.
Much like her two fellow newcomers in season 14, Brynn isn’t donning a wedding ring just yet. Instead, she cheekily labels herself as a ‘trophy wife in training.’ Off-camera, she channels her energy into her passions: yoga and the art of interior design. Brynn’s addition to the ensemble comes on the heels of a tepid season 13 — one that not only suffered low ratings but also saw its anticipated reunion episode shelved.
