From a press release:
“Bad With Money delves into even deeper personal territory with the story of his struggle with debt—a journey that takes him through drug addiction, prostitution, fraud and multiple betrayals.
“In this gripping play-by-play of some of his biggest mistakes and their consequences, Rimalower offers a no-holds-barred self-portrait as an addict, and casts light on one of the last societal taboos.
“People tend to be familiar now with alcohol and drug addiction—and I've got those, too. But spending money I don't have is really my drug of choice. And considering how many people suffer from the same problem, it's staggering how seldom it's discussed.”
I'll have to see this, even if it makes me squirm. I am an inveterate spendthrift, the olden-days term for someone who is not only bad with money, they're the worst. I can list dozens of things I did to lose what was a substantial wad of cash I once had, and the timing couldn't be better—as we prepare to sell our place and part ways, I'm looking for a job and sifting through some pretty poor (and at least a few smart!) investments I made along the way.
I'll see you at the show. Drinks can be on you, dear readers.
A well-prepped thief, likely one who follows the society papers, has pulled a million-dollar heist by burglarizing a Houston socialite who had recently shown off the contents of her three-story closet on TV.
Theresa Roemer told Good Morning America that her closet holds two million dollars worth of Birkins and other modern-day booty. She now says:
“No one deserves this. I don't care if you're wealthy. I don't care if you're poor. Your personal belongings are your personal belongings.”
Well, of course, though there's a big gap in the pain of being a poor person with no insurance losing your one and only TV and being a socialite losing a cool million in haute couture.
