Brett Butler has announced that she is broke.
The “Grace Under Fire” actress said in a new interview that she was recently six months behind on her rent and that a friend set up a GoFundMe page to help her out.
Butler, 63, revealed that she thinks she may have waited too long to allow a friend to enter. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she recalled telling a buddy, “I was ashamed. Almost ashamed to death. “
Butler is best known for her role on the ABC sitcom that was based on her life, including her struggles with addiction and an abusive marriage. She reportedly grossed $ 250,000 per episode.

“I was really heavy at the bloody, bitter end,” Butler said of the series that ended abruptly in season 5. “
Season five was delayed when Butler first checked into rehab. After a relapse and failure on the set, ABC canceled the series. Of the 112 episodes of “Grace Under Fire,” Butler admitted that she only remembers 80. Even so, she’s not interested in ever seeing the role that made her succeed again.

“I’m trying not to go back to yesterday,” she said. “I think the last time I saw something old it was my first ‘Tonight Show’.”
“I will definitely take the blow of the crash and burn myself,” added Butler.
“I think a lot of missteps go into things before they get to that point with different people – but I was the star of the show so I have to tackle this fully. I am terribly guilty for a Gentile. “Girls.”

In 1998 Butler sobered up. She raised a fortune of $ 25 million from her early acting career but admitted that much of her fortune was “stolen”.
“It’s just stupid on my part not to have insurance for these things. And a lot of money to borrow and give away. I really felt so guilty about having it – I almost couldn’t get rid of it fast enough.” She said.
Butler also starred in Anger Management for two years, a role she attributes to co-star Charlie Sheen.
“It wasn’t for Charlie, there was no way I would have been on that show. It literally saved me, ”she said.
So far, she has received over $ 12,000 in donations from nearly 250 people, according to the friend who created Butler’s fundraising page. The goal was raised to $ 20,000, the friend said, noting, “It just takes a little nudge to get back on her feet.”
