debug: I could loan her $6000.  She can pay it back in cash or take it out in trade.

This sounds like a messy divorce that may have locked up the joint accounts until it's done.
LH has been in the business for too long to not be financially smart. Or at least to have the right people in place to handle it.

AdolfOliverPanties: Garret Dillahunt is awesome.


I'm watching Raising Hope on Netflix, and dude is hilarious.  Complete scene-stealer.

StRalphTheLiar: Are you black? I've heard she's only into brothers.


That and the truth aren't identical, but they're kissing cousins.

Happy Hours: their $46,000 tax refund from 2011

Uh....that's a tax refund that's more than a lot of people earn in a single year. She's either full of shiat or she is horrible at managing her money and quite probably both.

Game of Thrones will not last forever and she may never get a job after it. She probably will get other jobs, but as an actress it's certainly not guaranteed. WTF is wrong with these people?

I do believe they live on a different planet than most regular people.


Let's not forget that she's either getting divorced or just finished one up (I can't recall). That's a pretty awesome way to empty one's bank accounts without necessarily being a boob (though I'm assuming there might be boobishness from the other party in the divorce).

A messy, bitter divorce can suck up money like a black hole. It's entirely possible she and the ex have bankrupted each other.

Yep, a messy, bitter divorce is the single stupidest thing 2 people can do.  My brother is in one right now and I can't tell him that his lawyer will agree to ANYTHING because he's getting paid to try it.  They are getting to the point where combined they will owe more in legal fees than the liquid value of the assets they are fighting over.


Sounds more like an argument that marriage is the stupidest thing two people can do, with divorce being a close second.

So want to make a joke about the characters that are scheduled to die this season, but that would be impolite to those who insist on a world free of spoilers from a book published over a decade ago.

Happy Hours: Like....a house she can't afford if she doesn't keep pulling in a salary that somehow gets a $46,000 tax refund. Cars she can't afford. Other luxuries she can't afford. COCAINE


A kid with medical problems and a pre-existing condition that had rendered him uninsurable.

I did not know that, but isn't she from England and isn't health care free there?

Sorry, I don't keep tabs on the personal lives of celebrities. A cursory glance at wikipedia says she has 1 child, but I didn't notice any medical conditions mentioned there and a similarly cursory look at imdb shows she's been working for over 20 years as an actress. How the hell can she be broke?

It was probably unfair of me to throw out cocaine as a possible explanation although I wouldn't rule it out, but seriously how the hell is she broke? $46,000 tax refund pretty much says it all. You don't get that kind of refund unless you earn a lot more than that

Happy Hours: I did not know that


Sorry, my misread at another article -- it was her pregnancy that made her uninsurable, due to it being considered a pre-existing condition, and also leaving her unable to work. Medical care ain't cheap, even relatively "routine" prenatal/neonatal.

I suspect she was functionally stuck in the US for a bit in hopes of a job; not sure on the details. (I don't pay much attention to the entertainment world, either.)

Happy Hours: It was probably unfair of me to throw out cocaine as a possible explanation although I wouldn't rule it out, but seriously how the hell is she broke?


I can't rule it out either; and yeah, likely takes some work... particularly with the income a $46k refund suggests. Even still, it's also not clear whether she or hubby is the spendthrift. Her request for the refund going to a dual-signature checking account suggests him.

AntonChigger: StRalphTheLiar: abhorrent1: I'll give her a few grand for a few hours of her time, if you know what I mean.

Are you black? I've heard she's only into brothers.

OH SNAP.

/thread over everyone, go home.


I don't get it. But I don't watch that show.

Hyjamon: Keep in mind these (actors/actresses) are people who make a living by playing pretend. I imagine that if you are really good at pretending, you would might not have the best grip or ability to stay in reality.


I read an interesting article some time ago about a" regular" guy who dated a supermodel for several months. It was less him bragging about awesome sexxoring with a supermodel , and more about how bewildering she was by the mundane facets of life that you or I take for granted, such as balancing a checkbook.

Part of the problem is the economic nature of the business. Actors are not employees, they don't draw regular paychecks. When the are working on a project, they get paid in lump sums. When they aren't working on a project, they are essentially unemployed.

Oh sure, you or I could easily take a huge lump sum of money and figure out how to budget that out until our next presumable project, but that's because we have years of experience in managing out expenses relative to our income. Supermodels and actors often don't. Many hire personal accountants, but many do not.

Many actors use their star status to prolong and strength their careers, and to maintain their star status, they are expected to behave and appear like stars. That means flying around to attend lots of PR events, and wearing designer clothes, and going on lavish vacations, and buying expensive property (which adds more monthly overhead). To say nothing of the "normal" stuff, like raising kids, or going through messy divorces.

Its not surprising that this person, despite being a well-respected actor on one of the hottest shows around, is having a cash-flow problem.

So, messy divorce, and all her usual sources of money are completely locked down.  Yeah, I can't blame her for that.
