Billie Faiers broke down in tears on Wednesday night’s episode of The Family Diaries.
The 32-year-old cried on the ITVBe show after having problems with an ongoing home renovation.
Tonight’s show sees her husband Greg tending to the garden landscape with his own hands – but Billie is less than impressed.
She shook her head at her husband and asked, “Why can’t we build a brick wall?”
Greg was taken aback by his wife, asking her: “But why are you saying that now?”
The reality TV star is said to be at war with her neighbors – and she hasn’t even moved into her new mansion yet.
The former TOWIE star took possession of their four-bedroom property in Brentwood, Essex in January 2020 and has been renovating it since.
The noisy construction seems to mean the reality TV star is no longer talking to her neighbors, who have also tried to block planning permission applications from the celebrity couple.
In the latest installment of the story, Billie and Greg recently splurged a whopping £20,000 on trees to avoid prying eyes.
According to The Sun, The Mummy Diaries star and her partner purchased the Laurel tree, which, for £240 per tree, can grow 15 to 35 feet tall.
The new garden feature is perfect for adding privacy – especially with neighbors you may not want to see into your garden and grounds.
Billie and Greg are said to have become entangled in a bitter feud with nearby residents, due to their opposition to the celebrity couple’s renewal plan.
After a neighbor told the council their ambitious vision would “erode the local character and quality of the space”, the couple were forced to revise their original plans.
“Honestly, we don’t go there much, so we haven’t met anyone yet. But that’s not a great start, is it?” Billie admitted when discussing her new home and neighbors after the fight.
She continued: “The house is old, whoever wants to buy it has to fix it.
“There was only one neighbor on our side and he had a lot of reasons why he didn’t want us to move on, but in the end it turned out to be a bit silly.”
Despite a bad start, Billie still looks forward to moving her family into their new permanent home.
