Question: I'm 50 years old and absolutely hate my job. It's stressful, requires long hours and I have a tough boss. So I'm wondering about early retirement. Fortunately, I have about $1.6 million dollars saved up and the only debt I have is a mortgage on my house that equates to less than half its value. I also lead a very frugal lifestyle.

Good summary.

I can't help wondering if Updegrave pulls that generic article out of his... um... "back pocket" whenever he's having trouble making deadline.

In court papers, Joe, who owns a stucco and stone company, lists his monthly income as $3,250; Teresa pulls down $3,333 a month for her Bravo gig. The couple gets another $10,000 in "monthly assistance from family members."
I wondered what motivated them to seek the big-bucks life of glamorous reality-TV stars.
