Helps Advise the Young Women on Their Out-of-Control Spending Habits
Episode 109 ("Jackie") � Jackie is a 26-yea-old dietician who is spending way beyond her means in order to solicit high-end clients and project an image of success and luxury. Although her dad foots the bill on her car payment and her boyfriend pays all the rent, Jackie is depleting her savings to support her lavish lifestyle while attempting to pay off her debt. At the rate she's going, she'll have no savings in two years. With the help of money coach Farnoosh Torabi, Jackie's father, Stephen, will move in to force her to face the ugly truth about her life, on a new episode of "Bank of Mom & Dad," airing WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 (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, and on Quicken Online, WalletPop (AOL), MSNBC and CNN, Farnoosh ("You're So Money") will help plan a road map for change and provide the tools to make it happen.
