Selling Sunset star Jason Oppenheim has revealed how he and twin brother Brett managed to turn their lives around after a troubled childhood left them at ‘rock bottom’, living in a halfway house and facing a future behind bars.

Real estate moguls Jason and Brett, who feature on the hit Netflix show running a firm that sells mega-mansions to the rich and famous, were out of control teenagers, regularly getting into fist fights and scrapes with the law.

The wild pair were expelled or suspended from five schools and spent several nights in a jail cell, all while being raised by their struggling single mom Deborah in Fremont, Northern California.

But in a dramatic change in fortunes Jason, 43, exclusively sat down with DailyMailTV to reveal it took an intervention by his hard-line Vietnam war veteran father Bennett to help straighten him and his brother out.

After three years living with his dad Jason says he found a focus that led to him doing better at school before graduating with honors from leading university UC Berkeley.

After working at a law firm he then traveled the world before creating a successful real estate practice on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard with brother Brett – the focus of hit TV show Selling Sunset which is Netflix’s biggest realty series of the summer.

Jason told DailyMailTV: ‘I am not ashamed of my past, but I am not proud of it either.’
