According to fellow Thrive promoter Addy Molony, Shan’ann would have likely been making “next to nothing” for the first couple of years. Shan’ann started working as a Thrive promoter in January 2016. It’s not clear whether Thrive promoters tell one another that, or just the police during criminal investigations.
In any event, while Molony couldn’t say how much Shan’ann was earning, in 2018 Shan’ann “hit the $80K mark”. I’m not sure what that means, but it doesn’t mean she was actually earning $80 000 a year. She was earning nowhere near as much as her husband’s meagre salary, and she was also borrowing money from him and maxing out all her credit cards.
It’s very likely that after going bankrupt in 2015, Shan’ann’s two years working at Thrive did a brilliant job at taking the family finances exactly nowhere.
Through Addy we’re also informed of Shan’ann’s reaction to getting an alert on her phone that Chris Watts had used her credit card while she was in Arizona, and ther $62 charge suggested he’d likely bought a meal for two.
Earlier that same date – Saturday August 11 – Kessinger Googled for 45 minutes on “how to prepare for anal sex”.
Addy also confirmed that Chris Watts parents [plural] did not like Shan’ann. When Chris Watts traveled to North Carolina in the first week of August, his parents told them they hadn’t seen their grandchildren in two weeks, even though she’d traveled there to visit his and her family over a 6 week period in total.
