In news that is likely to be greeted by all struggling parents and lovers of obedient and virtuous children as an omen betokening the end of civilization, Danielle Bregoli, better known as the “Cash Me Outside Girl,” has been given her own reality-TV series.
Yes, the 13-year-old girl who, as keen fans of Dr. Phil and his comprehensive on-screen descriptions know all too well, is a “car-stealing, knife-wielding, twerking” daughter who “tried to frame” her mother “for a crime,” is being rewarded for the carefully generated outrage of previous weeks with her very own show, according to a report on TMZ.
No doubt the news will only serve to foment further outrage around Bregoli, who became the obsession of teenage delinquents everywhere after telling Dr. Phil that if anyone wanted to rein in her behavior, they’d have to, “Cash me outside, howbow dah?”
Her mother, Barbara Ann, explained that the phrase “means she’ll go outside and do what she has to do.”
Since then, Bregoli, who again is only 13 years old, has stayed in the headlines via a series of episodes that have only served to confirm the impression of an out-of-control and in-need-of-help teenager.
First she was pulled off a Spirit Airlines flight following an attack on another passenger who she claimed pushed her (cellphone footage of the altercation shows Bregoli screaming, “What’s up bitch?” in the crowded and chaotic airplane), then truly disturbing cellphone footage emerged of her brawling with her mother in a nasty domestic row started circulating on the internet.
The video shows Bregoli being called a “bitch” by her mother and pinned to the ground by her, and cast a very different light on the dynamics of the mother-daughter relationship from that shown on Dr. Phil.
It is believed the deeply unsettling footage was shot as long as three years ago, meaning Danielle could have been as young as 10 in the video.
There were calls for children’s advocates or police to investigate the footage—but Bregoli has defended her mom, telling a TMZ camera crew that the encounter was nothing but “play fighting.”
“Me and my mother are not fighting on the floor. We are play fighting,” she told TMZ. “My ex-best friend took it to a whole other level. It wasn’t what it was at all. We were play fighting on the floor and I hit her too hard and she kind of pushed me on the floor. That’s all that happened.”
Danielle added, “People need to take their head out of shit they shouldn’t have their head in. My mother is not abusive, she doesn’t abuse me. I love my mother.”
Danielle, who is now said to be attempting to charge thousands of dollars for public appearances, was also filmed getting into a fight in Florida bar.
Security cam footage of the incident—which was triggered after one of her teenage friends allegedly threw an ice cream at a bar patron—was posted on YouTube last week.
According to a post accompanying the video, the woman at the center of the row had suggested that Bregoli was out past her curfew.
TMZ reports that the reality-show deal was signed with “a major TV production company” but offered no further details.
