Many reality stars are parading around flaunting their “riches” even while they’re flat broke! Others have amassed huge fortunes through their shows and advertising campaigns, but have turned around and lost it all. Even some legitimate celebrities have met desperate times and taken up gigs on reality television. This list takes a look at the precarious positions of being wealthy in Hollywood land, and those who have fallen from grace.
6. Janice Dickinson
The self-proclaimed “world’s first supermodel” has spent a good portion of her career on the reality television circuit, including a stint on America’s Next Top Model, Celebrity Rehab, and The Surreal Life. In spit of these appearances, the once sought after beauty has gone from riches to rags. In 2013, the Los Angeles Times reported that Dickinson had filed for bankruptcy and owed more than $500,000 in unpaid taxes! She also owed thousands to doctors including Dr. Uzzi Reiss of the Beverly Hills Anti-Aging Center in California. In the same year, Dickinson became engaged to leading psycho-pharmacology doctor, Robert Gerner. The two have yet to tie the knot, but the relationship may have saved her from the poor house.
