Here is what Alison Victoria said in an interview with People Magazine.

“All of a sudden, you start closing on these houses and you start wondering. ‘Where is the profit? Why am I not making any money’? And then you start uncovering more and more. That’s when I realized that I had no idea what was going on”.

Things are not going well for Alison Victoria as either of the business partners are not allowed to take out any building permits in Chicago right now.

She is currently extracting her business and building a new reputation for herself; which is harder than it might seem.

“People just think, ‘Oh, it’s easy. You just get rid of a partner.’ But I have friends that have gone through divorces that aren’t this bad. And those divorces were really bad.”


Although this not the best of time for her; it appears from the interview that she is pulling through the split and credits her boyfriend Michael Marks and her family for helping her stay positive.
