Beautiful celebs who used to be homeless

Claudette Ortiz has officially become the latest celeb to share that she’s been homeless. The City High singer and “R&B Divas”  cast member recently told BOSSIP that just before signing on for the program she was struggling to find a home for herself and her three children. According to Ortiz, she worked a series of odd jobs but ultimately couldn’t make ends meet.

“Prior to the show, I had really hit rock bottom and I was at a crossroads where I just had to [do the show]. All the little odd jobs that I was doing … those things were not enough to raise my children,” said Ortiz.

She then detailed the night she received a life-changing text message and an invitation to join the TV One reality show.

“I was having a rough night,” said Ortiz. “I had to leave the place I was at, and I was driving with the things in my trunk and my kids were asleep and I had nowhere to go.  … That night I was upset and I was crying. … That’s was when I got the text. I never wanted to be a part of reality shows because I never wanted to expose my children on anything like that.”

Like Ortiz, there are several other beautiful women who at one point were downtrodden and homeless.
