Helps Advise the Young Women on Their Out-of-Control Spending Habits
"Christina" � Christina fancies herself the classic "Single Girl in the City." Life is a whirling party of overseas travel, pedicures, massages, yoga, tanning and fancy gourmet dinners against the backdrop of New York City. But Christina doesn't have the income to back up her jet-setting lifestyle. Not only does she have mounting bills, but she has no health insurance because she prefers to travel. Plus, she's about to lose the car she doesn't even need to unpaid parking tickets. Moving in with Christina are her divorced parents, Lorraine and Henri, who will live together under the same roof for the first time in years. They are shocked to discover how huge her debt is. With the help of money coach Farnoosh Torabi, they will try to make Christina face reality, on the series premiere of "Bank of Mom & Dad," airing WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 (10:00 p.m. � 11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on SOAPnet.
Adapted from a BBC format, "Bank of Mom & Dad" each week will visit a young adult woman with a wayward lifestyle and out-of-control spending habits, who has to go through a major reality check as she faces up to her debt. With the help of Farnoosh, Mom & Dad will move in for one week, taking total control in an emotionally charged intervention where the parents have to approve every dollar spent. Best known for her work in Seventeen Magazine, on Quicken Online, WalletPop (AOL), MSNBC and CNN, Farnoosh ("You're so Money") will help plan a road map for change and the tools to make it happen.
