Katy Mixon began her acting career while she was still studying in college. Her first acting role was in the theatre production of Shakespeare’s play Julius Ceasar in 2001. She portrayed the role of Calpurnia, and the play was displayed during the Utah Shakespearean Festival. Thereafter, Mixon moved to Los Angeles in 2003 in search of better opportunities. Two years later, she featured in a play titled American Standard at the Los Angeles Edgefest.

Katy’s Physique And How It Has Affected Her Career 

Katy Mixon is not a very tall woman; she stands at a height of 5 feet 7 inches, which nicely complements her body weight of 61 kg. She also has a body that measures 33-27-35 inches for bust, waist, and hips, respectively. While she was still with her ex, Bobby Deen, a rumor once went round that the two were expecting a baby. As it would later be the case, there was no pregnancy, and what was thought to be a baby bump was indeed found to be just fat as she gained some weight.

Not long after that, she appeared in a piloted season of American Housewife, titled The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport, which later became the second season of the show. Speculations emerged that Katy only added weight to fit into the character of the mother of three in the show. As though to support the speculation, she shed off the excess weight. She once revealed that the weight issue has been one of her greatest insecurities. Her weight loss has been said to be thanks to diet pills called Pure Natural Garcinia.

How Much is the American Housewives Star Worth?

Although she is now making thousands of dollars for her roles in movies, it is noteworthy that Katy started her career pocketing only $12 for her role in the play, Julius Caesar. At the time, she was combining her college studies and her career as an actress.

Needless to say, she has come a long way in her career. Although she has not featured in hundreds of films, she has still been able to amass a good fortune for herself. Katy Mixon has a net worth that has been estimated at a massive $10 million. A better part of her fortune was made from her career as an actress, as well as her other endeavors.

Meet Her Husband And Family

An adorable woman with beauty and grace on her side, Katy Mixon is a married woman. She tied the knot in 2016 when she got married to retired American track and field athlete who represented the US and won Bronze at the 2007 World Championships, Breaux Greer. The duo started dating in 2013, although it is not known how they met. Three years later, they decided to spend the rest of their lives together.

Their union was blessed with the birth of their first child, Kingston Saint in 2017. A year and 3 days later, they welcomed a daughter, Elektra in May 2018. The parents were surprised when they realized that less than a year after the birth of their son, they were already expecting a daughter, but they still found it thrilling.

While Greer is the man Mixon decided to spend the rest of her life with, he is not the first man she has dated. Before the two met, she was once in a relationship with American television chef and restaurant manager, Bobby Deen. They started dating in 2009, and just when many were expecting to hear the sound of wedding bells, they parted ways in 2012.

Deen was left heartbroken when their well-publicized relationship came to an end after the actress decided to move to Los Angeles. Still, it did not take him too long before he started yet another relationship with Claudia Lovera, which led to marriage in 2013. They are now blessed with three kids.

Katy Mixon Once Sued Her Nanny For Extortion Attempt

In 2019, the American Housewife star and her husband dragged their former nanny, Laree Hammer, to court after the latter claimed she was still being owed by the celebrity couple after she was fired close to a year before then. According to court documents, the couple is suing the former nanny after she “concocted a series of harassment claims” intending to embarrass them and get monetary settlements after she was fired for breaking confidentiality agreement, inappropriate dressing, and failure to follow feeding schedule for their daughter, among other things.

While Katy is seeking compensation of $100,000 for a breach of a non-disclosure agreement, Hammer, on the other hand, also filed another lawsuit, claiming $500,000 in compensation, $150,000 in labor law penalties, and another $150,000 in unpaid wages. She further accused Katy’s husband of sexual harassment. As of this writing, the case is still ongoing and yet to be concluded.
