Life Before “Rehab Addict”, Ex-Husband Steve Lane
Pregnant and without a degree, Nicole didn’t have many options – it was either to start working as a waitress or to launch her own business. Well, she started her own cleaning company, while also attending a course which would give her a license to become a realtor.

However, Steve and Nicole divorced in 2009 and she was again left on her own. Nevertheless, her business blossomed during these years, and from a cleaning business Nicole became more focused on an antique store, and also obtained her realtor license.
She started with small jobs in the Minneapolis area, but gradually expanded and she found herself renovating World War II houses, making them look like they were built in the new millennium. She was becoming more popular, and it was in 2009 that she felt the first rays of success. A picture of her reached the production company Magnetic Productions, and as a result she made her first television appearance in the show “Sweat Equity”, and just six months later Nicole got her own show.
Nicole had a camera crew from the DIY network which would follow her on her restorations, and the series “Rehab Addict” premiered on the 14th October 2010, which quickly became extremely popular, launching Nicole to stardom, and certainly increasing her net worth.
As the show’s popularity grew, it has moved to HGTV since the fourth season, and Curtis herself started appearing in other shows similar to “Rehab Addict”, such as “Daryl’s Restoration Over-Hall”, “Beach Flip”, and “Home & Family”, among others.
