“The Sopranos” actress Drea de Matteo said flaunting her stuff on OnlyFans to save her home from going into foreclosure.

The famous actress, who spent 7 years on the hit show, admitted she was initially reluctant to join the adult-content platform, but when she found herself in a situation with just $10 in her bank account and debt collectors threatening her home, she knew she had to do something. De Matteo said she took some clothes off and snapped some racy shots, and was able to save her home from foreclosure in just five minutes, according to Daily Mail.

“They put me into foreclosure and my house had flooded, so I was trying to sell the house quickly,” she said.

“At the same time, I lost my mom, and my other mom, who has dementia, had run out of money for her caregiver. I didn’t know which way was up,” she told Daily Mail.

De Matteo praised OnlyFans for “saving her life,” saying she was forced out of work when she refused to receive the COVID vaccine, and she was running out of money at a fast pace.

“It saved us,” she said.

“OnlyFans saved my life, 100 percent. I can’t believe I’m saying that, but it really did save us,” she said.

She went on to say her racy uploads proved to be so lucrative that she not only saved her home within minutes but also went on to earn so much additional money that she launched her own business.

“Anybody that wants to condemn me and put me down, go for it. I just hope you never find yourself in the position I was in to take care of two little kids,” she told Daily Mail.

“It saved my home of many years that was very important to us.”

De Matteo said the money was great, so she continued uploading images and raking it in.

“I kept putting more pictures up. I was like, holy shit,” she said.

She expressed her initial hesitation and how she felt when she first dove into the adult-entertainment world.

“I did it, but I didn’t want to do it,” she admitted.

“I got a lot of heat for doing it and it went fucking viral and people went nuts.”

The famous actress went on to say she has grown to love the OnlyFans platform and feels a new sense of empowerment through her involvement on the site. (RELATED: Adult Content Company Offered Snoop Dogg $100,000,000 To ‘Pull That Thang Out,’ Rapper Says)
