Why am I selling my house?

There are some of the most ridiculous rumors out there that we can't afford it and that we are broke. Joe and I have worked very hard for many years to get where we are today. When we first started the show, we only owned one building. Now we own four or five. Joe was the only one bringing in money for the last few years, because I didn't work and I was with the kids. Now we are both bringing in money. Why on earth would anyone think we are in that position? It's just ridiculous. We do pay our mortgage and we are NOT broke. There is a wonderful thing called the internet where you can look up public records and find out what we paid for our house, the rate on our mortgage, pretty much everything. The truth is this: we put our house up to get away from the negativity. I have to protect my family. I don't want my children around anyone, including family that is speaking badly about me or trying to put me down. I see it happening already. I couldn't believe what my nieces were saying about me, and as the girls get older it will only get worse. Then they will begin to tell my children what they hear about me from their mother. I can't have that. I won't have it. If you bring Zia Teresa's name up to my children they never say a negative thing about her, and as long as I can help it they won’t. They know nothing about what is happening between us, and I would like to keep it that way for them as long as I can.
 
What’s next for the music?

I Just Wanna (feat. Santino Noir) is doing incredible on iTunes! Thanks to all of you! I'm so ecstatic that everyone loves it this much. I just released the video on Vevo and (Thank you, Jesus!) I've been blessed! I couldn't be more excited about any of it. I just started working with someone huge in the music industry, so I'm excited to see where it goes. I truly feel like whatever is meant to be will be. If it succeeds even more, great! If it doesn't, I love my life and my family, and I'm happy either way. That’s what is most important. I love when people come up to me and tell me how they are following their dreams too now after watching me. I get choked up every time. I can't explain how that makes me feel. But I tell everyone it can't be everything. If it works, great, but you can't be devastated if it doesn't. I never live my life just around having business success. Having success in my home is the true money maker!
