Pamela Flood has admitted the past 18 months were the worst of her life after a lengthy court battle with a vulture fund.
In October, the TV presenter and her husband Ronan Ryan won a High Court appeal against a repossession order granted over their house on Dublin’s Mount Prospect Avenue.
Last week it emerged the couple, both 49, agreed to sell their family home in Clontarf as part of a deal hammered out with Tanager.
Speaking for the first time since the deal was signed, former Miss Ireland Pamela admitted it had been a difficult time for her family.
She said: “The last year and a half or so [were tough] but I hope that in the last year or so people, without going into too much detail, understand a little better than the fibs that were told last year.
“And that people get it and realise we are not bad people and that we didn’t do anything wrong.
“Last year has been the worst year of my life for obvious reasons but we learn from things and perspective is your friend. It is all good now.”
The house has been put on the market with an asking price of €695,000 although it is believed viewings will not start while Covid-19 restrictions remain in place.
While the couple sell the property, they will continue to run their catering business Counter Culture.

According to court documents the agreement will eliminate the €1.2million mortgage debt they owe to the fund.
There has also been a stipulation put in place to put the pair in a position to downsize to a new home.
During proceedings last year, it emerged they had not made any mortgage payments on the property for eight years.
In an Instagram Live post, Pamela, who fronted fashion show Off The Rails with Caroline Morahan, said her celebrity made the ordeal worse.
She added: “What should be private is not private and I think that is really wrong.
“There are upsides too. Sometimes you are in the middle of Aldi or Dunnes and some people come up and say they loved the show and they miss myself and Caroline and that is really lovely.”
