I can’t even believe this is really life right now because somehow I was able to get the one-and-only Perez Hilton to chat with me on the podcast!

Many of you may already know this about me, but I am a total celebrity news junkie. I know it’s silly, but I think I just like the fantasy of it all. Plus, that life is just so far removed from my own, it’s kind of like watching an episode of Teen Mom. It’s fascinating and entertaining, but I’m really glad that it’s not my own reality.

With that said, I’ve been a long-time reader of, going back probably when he started his blog back in 2005. I’m not lying when I say I’ve gotten into a routine of checking his website at least once per day, which is how I discovered his video about filing for bankruptcy when he was younger. I couldn’t believe he, a celebrity blogger, also had a personal finance story to tell, and I wanted to know more!

So, after watching his video, I tweeted at him saying I’d love to have him on my podcast, and to my delight, he said yes! And within a week, I had a recording of our interview together and could not wait to share it with you for Season 6 of the More Money Podcast!

In our interview together, we talk about it all. His money mistakes, the lessons he’s learned, how he hopes to achieve financial independence through passive income streams and real estate investing, and what he’s going to teach his kids about money when they grow up.

I hope you love this episode as much as I do because it really was so much fun to record! Thanks a million, Perez for taking the time out of your crazy busy schedule to talk money with me, I’ll never forget it!
