OK, I'll withdraw my assertion that he's a slimeball for this reason.

And it seems that he is being proven to be a lot more on the money with his steroid allegations than many people give him credit for.

But he still seems like a slimeball.

Am I the only one reading this as he has a "judgment against the house from another matter" so even if market value is up and he can make the payments it's a matter of not losing a paid off house to another creditor?


"I do have a judgment on my home and it to me is very strange because it didn't make financial sense for me to keep paying a mortgage on a home that was basically owned by someone else," he said in an interview that aired Thursday.

Well, I have to kinda agree with her on that one. That's like not even 1% of his estate. Why would he not give his daughter much more than that?

As for Jose, he signed a contract so the holder of the contract should sue him for the money he owes. We need to get hard on these deadbeat losers.

Two good names for rock bands. Poopy Lemon Slices and Random Sandwiches. Get one to open for the other.

I find it interesting that someone earning 5+ million per year would need a mortgage.

As for all the pharma comments, let me just say:
"I used to have a drug problem, but now I make enough money to afford it."
-- David Lee Roth

"Every time I'd get down to my last few thousand dollars, another $700K royalty check would come along to help buy more cocaine."
-- paraphrase of a Rick James interview

OK, this is one idiot I don't mind beating on.

Didn't Lenny Dykstra also almost go bankrupt after he gave $4 million to a broker who magically turned into $400,000? Lenny then re-educated himself and turned himself into a millionaire 60 or 80 times over by operating a chain of car washes.

Al,
....You can tell I wasn't home in that PIC because my pickemup wasn't parked in the old ladies flowerbed. Next time you are in the neighborhood taking pictures knock on the door and we can have some beers in the yard.
