The Sopranos star Drea de Matteo has revealed what she told her son who was upset with her OnlyFans career. 

In her visit to The Sage Steele Show on Wednesday, de Matteo explained that her son isn't fond of her latest career path even though she's been making a lot of money. According to the actress, she had to give her son some tough love to explain that he's going to have to deal with it because her job as an OnlyFans model has allowed her to take care of herself and her family.

"'Do you like that jacket you just asked me to buy you?'" de Matteo said she asked her son. "'You like all the things that you want that make you happy? You like that new PC that you begged for for Christmas? Because you wouldn't have that shit if Mommy didn't show her ass!"

She added, "That shuts him up because he's a little greedy little bastard, too, sometimes. I mean, he's 12, you know?"

Matteo joined OnlyFans last August after she was struggling financially to make ends meet. In a conversation with the Daily Mail, de Matteo explained how things got bad for her and her family

"They put me into foreclosure and my house had flooded, so I was trying to sell the house quickly. I wanted to try and sell it before they took it," Matteo told the . "At the same time, I lost my mom, and my other mom, who has dementia, had run out of money for her caregiver. I didn't know which way was up."

She continued, "It saved us. OnlyFans saved my life, 100 percent. I can't believe I'm saying that, but it really did save us. Anybody that wants to condemn me and put me down, go for it. I just hope you never find yourself in the position I was in to take care of two little kids."
