TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates Features Penny-Pinching Entrepreneur and Former Pro Wrestling Star, Goldy Locks
Nashville, TN — She’s a rock artist who’s shared the stage with the likes of Pink and Bret Michaels. She’s Goldy Locks: rocker, motivational speaker, a former pro wrestling personality with an attitude. She is a fierce fitness buff, celebrity photographer and an entrepreneur with a hot line of accessories. At one moment sensitive and funny, and next minute an abrasive, outright badass, Goldy is also a notorious cheapskate.
With her seemingly endless supply of energy and ideas, this penny-pinching diva shares her sometimes-startling cost-saving tactics in a forthcoming episode of TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates.
Members of the touring rock band that bears her name are accustomed to Goldy’s stingy do-it-for-less strategies. Foregoing even the cheapest motels, they sleep in a cramped van and act as lookouts while Goldy “crashes” other people’s machines at a laundromat with her own dirty duds, smuggled in inside a guitar case.
Those fancy stage costumes? Likely something cobbled together from a mix of thrift store fare and discarded items scavenged from a neighbor’s trash. A renovated hospital serves as home and office, complete with lingering gems like the salvaged bedpan repurposed for the use of Goldy’s beloved cat, Annie.
“My motto is, ‘Don’t you dare throw it away, whatever it is,’” Goldy says. Her unique line of accessories, artistically crafted from found and salvaged materials, is a reflection of that philosophy.
And just wait to learn Goldy’s jaw-dropping savings tip for, uh, personal hygiene needs.
Country Music icon, Dolly Parton, has been quoted as saying, “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.” In contrast, Goldy Locks takes penny-pinching to the extreme in order to make things look like a million bucks.
Goldy Locks will reveal her unconventional cheapskate skills on TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates, Wednesday, Nov. 5. Wednesday, November 5 at 9PM ET/PT. Fans can comment on the episode during the show using #ExtremeCheapskates and @goldylocksrocks on Twitter as the show airs.
