Tammy Ly Explains Why She Keeps Her Bartending Job Despite Thriving Real Estate Career
Tammy Ly has a jam-packed résumé — so it’s no surprise that fans are often curious about her multifaceted career.
Not only is the “Bachelor” Season 24 alum a super successful real estate agent in New York, she is a real estate investor, house flipper, insurance agent, model, actress, and bartender.
With so many sources of income, why does Tammy keep her part-time gig in the restaurant and nightlife industry? The franchise star — who will appear on Season 7 of “Bachelor in Paradise” — explained why in an Instagram Story video shared on Sunday.
“So, I had a lot of questions about why I still bartend even though I have, like, six other jobs,” she began. “I feel like people who bartend will be able to relate to this because it’s such a thrill. I work at a restaurant during the day and then it transitions into nightlife and lounge-life.”
Tammy continued, “The transition point from, like, 10 p.m. when dinner’s over and everyone’s coming out to get bottle service and then the bar just gets so packed. It gets fast-paced instantly. It is the most thrilling thing that I can’t even explain.”
The multihyphenate went on to say that her bartending gig is “so much fun.” She elaborated, “And all my friends work there. And if I’m going to socialize, I’d rather get paid for it.”
Tammy also hinted that pouring drinks can be rather lucrative. “P.S. People who usually ask this question don’t know how much bartenders make,” she added in a caption.
During an exclusive interview with BachelorNation.com in May, the entrepreneurial TV personality revealed how she keeps up with her busy work schedule.
“I have a lot of planners. My Google Calendar is my best friend. I also have an assistant that helps me out and a business partner who helps me out. I hate saying this, because it sounds so cliché, but I do 110 percent in each of my jobs,” she noted at the time. “People who work with me in real estate, they would never think that I did anything else. I go into every job knowing that I need to be present, and I need to put 110 percent into everything that is in front of me.”
