She’s raising the roof.
A horrified homeowner who was told it would cost $10,000 to fix her leaking roof has laid bare her unique way of raising funds: by staging a strip show on top of her house.
Terah Meishalyn, 24, bought her three-bedroom property in Little Rock, Arkansas, less than a year ago but was left reeling when its roof started leaking last month.
Builders said the situation needed to be addressed quickly and quoted the eye-watering amount for repair costs. But when Meishalyn’s insurers refused to foot the bill, the “panicked” former dental nurse was forced to get creative.
“I thought ‘Oh my gosh, how am I going to scrape together $10,000 for an issue that clearly needs to be fixed soon?’” she recalled in an interview with Kennedy News. “I was obviously feeling a little bit down about that and figured I might as well use humor to deal with the situation because I could either laugh or cry.”
Meishalyn subsequently scaled the roof of her home to take a series of humorous selfies to share online.
To her surprise, the snaps quickly went viral and viewers urged the Little Rock native to get raunchy on the roof and charge for the content.
“When I originally posted, I didn’t even put anything about OnlyFans,” the homeowner insisted. “People started commenting, like, ‘Just start an OnlyFans — make money that way.’
“I have a job, but I would consider myself pretty and thought that I probably could make a decent amount on OnlyFans, and it would be a very quick way to scrape together that money,” she further explained. “So that’s why I originally started it.”
She also thought it might be unique — and “really funny” — to showcase suggestive photoshoots from her roof.
“It’s definitely very out of the ordinary, right?” Meishalyn explained. “Most people if they’re posting sultry photos, they’re just in a bed or sitting on a chair or something.”
However, as soon as she started staging the rooftop strip shows, she decided to end them — and not because her neighbors might have been prying.
“I very quickly realized I’m just not cut out for that,” she said of life as a raunchy rooftop showgirl.
“In no way shape or form do I look down on anyone who does that to make money, but just after looking at the content, I didn’t think I was cut out for it or could do that.”
Meishalyn didn’t disclose whether she actually raised the $10,000 needed before quitting the DIY project, but the steamy displays still managed to blow the roof off for some aroused fans on social media.
