There's pressure to flaunt the good life on a show like the Real Housewives of Vancouver, and it seems Reiko Mackenzie pulled out all the stops to create the illusion.
Turns out most of them were leased. Among the leased cars were a 2007 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Ferrari F430 Spider, Lamborghini Murcielago and 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia.
Makes sense. While I believe Reiko holds a Ferrari 458 Italia, probably as a lease, we've never seen her in any of her other cars. Ever. They were probably leased for the show.
She's also tweeted about driving a Fiat but that's a relatively inexpensive car. And we've never seen proof of it either.
Allegedly was also leased for the show. If you've been following Reiko on Instagram, you'll notice she's moved between at least three properties last year. One was to a farm and we all know out-of-town properties don't exactly cost an arm and a leg.
This article says she lives in Kerrisdale but a quick look at their real estate shows it's not exactly a high-rolling area.
A lot of the expensive shoes Reiko posts to her social media accounts is often in the store. Gives the impression that she can't afford these goods at all but posts the pictures to create the illusion she can.
And a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes she wore to an ET Canada interview are three years old. Which begs the question, did she get them second-hand?
As further testament to her limited financial resources, her ex-husband Sun Mackenzie is allegedly short on child support. And if we remember from the show, she relies on him to fund her lifestyle.
However it looks as if Reiko's set to launch a film career. She's signed up with a talent agency so maybe we'll see her on tv some more. You can view her "demo reel" too.
