Dr. Phil made waves when he inadvertently introduced the world to the catchiest viral insta-reality star of 2017. Of course, we’re talking about 13-year-old firecracker Danielle Bregoli. If her name doesn’t sound familiar, it’s because the Internet knows her as the “Cash Me Ousside” girl.
It’s not unusual for unruly teens to showcase their worst behavior in front of Dr. Phil’s audience, but Bregoli’s ‘tude and instant catchphrase made her a star overnight.
During a taping of Dr. Phil, the Cash Me Ousside girl proudly proclaimed in her southern twang that she’s “from the streets” and boasted that she stopped attending school in the 7th grade. Her mother, Barbara Ann, explained the bad behavior continued at home and said her daughter runs away at least four times out of the week. Bregoli’s spunk was so comical to the audience that the teen turned on the audience, and that’s when the “cash me ousside” phrase was born.
Now that she’s an Internet sensation, everyone wants to know who Danielle Bregoli is. Click to slide 14 to find out the first wild fact.
14. She’s An Epic Bragger
The Cash Me Ousside kid might have her 15 minutes of fame right now, but that’s not stopping her from going after Dr. Phil. After the appearance skyrocketed her to official meme status, she returned to the show only to proclaim she’s the reason for his resurgence. “I made you just how Oprah made you! You were nothin’ before I came on this show.”
At least she knows her Dr. Phil history, but that brag still takes real brass!

13. She Made A Big Impression On Producers
While we all assume there are certain liberties a daytime talk show will take to rev up the dramatic aspect of a certain guest, as it turns out Bregoli is every bit of what she claims to be. In fact, during her background meeting with the show’s producers, the unruly teen stole the keys of the producer’s car and decided to take a spin.
12. She Was Banned From An Airline
Bregoli isn’t just making an impression on Dr. Phil’s audience. When she’s not wowing audiences, she’s apparently starting fights with random people on flights. She’s only been an Internet sensation for a short amount of time, but in that time she’s managed to get herself banned by Spirit airlines!
During a flight with her mom, the newly-minted reality star started a fight with another passenger. Afterward, she and her mother were banned from flying Spirit.

11. She Infringed On The Brand Champion For Cheddar
Naturally, once the star realized that she was famous, the next step was to try and capitalize on that in an effort to make some serious dough. Bregoli decided to cash in on her famous catchphrase by starting an apparel line of sweaters. The only problem? She’s in major trouble after copying the Champion logo. Whoops!
10. Paging Nurse Bregoli
Even though she’s trying to get her entrepreneurial skills on while she still can, Bregoli has different aspirations for later on in life. The teen revealed she really wants to become a nurse in an effort to help other people. With that in mind, she has a long way to go in both maturity and schooling before her dreams are fully realized.
9. The Cops Have Been Called How Many Times!?
If you thought she was too much to handle on Dr. Phil, then you might be surprised to find out that the cops have been called to her house multiple times. When we think of a few times, usually we’d guess three to four. Well, in Bregoli’s case, the cops have been called an estimated 51 times. The charges range from running away from home, stealing cars, and domestic disturbances.

8. She’s A Target For Online Bullying
Once you become an Internet sensation, it’s easy to become a target for cyberbullying and that’s exactly what happened to the teen after her appearance on Dr. Phil. It’s said that she deals with cyber threats from people on social media on a daily basis. Sounds like a pretty intense experience.
7. It All Started With Her Parents
The hard times didn’t start with Bregoli. In fact, her environment was reportedly troublesome from very early on. Her parents were embroiled in a legal battle for years over custody, child support, and visitation rights. Seeing as this is still an on-going battle, it isn’t a shock that the teen decided to act out.
6. She Wasn’t Always A Bad Kid
Believe it or not, Bregoli wasn’t always a badass teen spouting catch phrases to her detractors. She was actually a sweet kid before she hit puberty. Back in 2009, she stood by her mother as she battled breast cancer and exhibited excellent behavior during the tumultuous time.

5. She’s Been To Rehab
After the show sent the Cash Me Ousside girl to rehab, it’s said that she’s making strides. Keep in mind, it only took her a few days since her insta-fame to go ballistic on an airplane, so we’re not too sure how much progress she’s made. However, she did develop a connection with a horse at the rehab named Chief.
4. Her Mother Is Soaking Up The Fame
Although her mother seemed distraught on Dr. Phil, it’s said that she’s embracing her daughter’s newfound fame. She’s benefitting by requesting luxurious hotels and additional appearances on TV. In addition to the airline incident, the mother has been captured going off on people on camera. Hopefully, she’ll set a better example for her daughter once the fame wears off.
3. Even Church Uses Her Catchphrase
You know you’ve hit the pinnacle of insta-fame when churches are using your catchphrase. According to one source, the Britt David Baptist Church is desperately trying to pull in younger worshipers and to do that, they decided to adopt the cash me ousside phrase in an effort to be hip with youth.
2. She’s Kind Of A Big Deal
If you didn’t realize by now, Danielle Bregoli is kind of a big deal. After she blew up on Dr. Phil, she’s become an Internet sensation, which naturally means she has a ton of followers on social media sites. Overnight, the teen received over 5.3 million followers on Instagram.
1. Her Father Is A Cop
With how many times the cops have been called to her house, you might be shocked to find out that Bregoli’s own father is a cop. He’s a Sheriff in Palm Beach, Florida, and despite her bad behavior, her father says that he hasn’t given up on her. It’s said his time with her is limited due to the ongoing custody battle.
While Danielle Bregoli is definitely making the most from her 15 minutes of fame, it’s a wonder if anyone around Bregoli is looking out for her best interest. It’s said that the person who sees her the least, her father, is trying to do right by his daughter.
Recently, the father has started a GoFundMe to “Save Danielle.” The money raised will assist in legal fees in getting Bregoli the proper help for a happy life and a better future. So far the campaign has raised $2,105 in 3 days.
