Mia Thornton is downgrading in a major way.
The Real Housewives of Potomac star revealed on Instagram that she and her family had to move out of their new Potomac mansion due to “financial setbacks.”
“Reverse, reverse. Yes, we MOVED!” Mia shared on January 5. “This was bittersweet as we anticipated living in the big house for at least 3 years while we decided to build/purchase, continue to rent, who knows, but due to unforeseen circumstances, our big space got cut short. One thing about me, I never stay down for long. Minor setback! Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to show you our new space! Elevator up … Penthouse Living, we return!”
Mia noted that she was “sending love, peace, and prosperity” to all her followers before adding, “Life is tough, but don’t give up when things happen to you. Keep pushing, realign with your purpose and keep pushing!”
In the comments of Mia’s post, one fan called her out for shading Wendy Osefo’s finances, while others hinted that karma was coming for Mia.
Mia admitted that she “has been humbled” and “promises to do better” when it comes to judging others.
She added that she is “grateful,” “fortunate,” and is “not taking anything for granted.”
The reality TV star and her family moved into their Potomac abode in December 2021 after leaving their Penthouse apartment in Baltimore. The Potomac house, which is located down the street from co-star Karen Huger, isn’t “cheap” and costs $10,000 a month to rent. Mia and her husband, Gordon Thornton, put a ton of money into the rental when they moved in to make the home more their style.
“Gordon and I decided to rent for the time being,” she explained at the time. “We wanted to get the kids into a home.”
“Even though it is a rental home, there were a few tweaks that I had to do,” Mia added. “I have spent somewhere north of $65,000.”
However, after some recent financial and business woes, the RHOP couple was forced to downsize, as reported above. In October, Mia revealed that Gordon’s brother revoked their access to their company’s bank account and “robbed us of everything we own.”
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs on Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
