When contractors told Meishalyn she needed a new roof, she was shocked by the cost of $10K
She created a “funny” plan to raise the money by taking risque photos on the roof and posting them online to raise $10,000 to fix her leaky roof.
Last month, Terah Meishalyn, 24, discovered that her roof was leaking when she bought her house in Little Rock less than a year ago. Her home insurance company said it would not cover the cost of replacing her entire roof, which would cost around $10,000.
“I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I don’t know how I’m going to raise $10,000 for a problem that is clearly urgent,” Meishalyn told Kennedy News. Because I could either laugh or cry, I decided to use humor to deal with the situation since I was feeling a little down about that.”
A self-described “silly” photo shoot on her roof helped her cope with the situation, and she posted the photos to a Facebook group where people asked for advice.
Meishalyn, a former dental assistant, said that people began commenting, “Just start an OnlyFans – make money that way.”
“I have a job, but I would consider myself pretty and thought I could make a decent amount on OnlyFans, and that would be a very quick way to earn money,” Meishalyn told Kennedy News.
Her initial idea was to take some risque photos on the roof wearing only a black leotard and post them online, but she soon realized she wasn’t cut out for it.
“I thought it would be really funny if I started doing suggestive photo shoots on my roof, it would be so out of the ordinary, wouldn’t it? Most people post raunchy photos of themselves in bed or on a chair.”
In no way do I look down on anyone who [posts risque photos to OnlyFans] for money, but after looking at the content, I didn’t think I’d be good at it or capable.”
According to Fox News Digital, Meishalyn is still trying to raise money for roof replacement, including setting up a GoFundMe page. However, a local roofing company in Little Rock has offered to tarp the roof in case of storms.
