CSI Actor Gary Dourdan Has $200 in Cash... Bless His Heart.
The troubled actor, who was rumored to be on that stuff, filed papers on August 30th -- and according to the documents, has a little over $1.8 mil in assets, although he's deep in the hole to the tune of $1.73 milli to creditors.
Live within your means, baby. Live within your means.
If you have a fly gig paying you the same amount of money each week that most people make in a year - save it. And I get the whole fame thing, people love famous people, so I know you can't live on 15th street in the hood, but guess what... when that show ends and you know you don't have anything lined up - sell that $2 million dollar mansion, buy a $350,000 condo in a really nice building with security - and live your life. Trying to live a lifestyle that cost $15,000 per month when you have income of $5,000 and spending your savings to keep it up is all kinds of dum.
A large chunk of Gary Peter's debt, $1,689,704 million -- is owed to various banks, including Union Bank, which apparently holds the mortgage on his home that may be in default.
As for his assets -- $200 cash, $3k in a bank account, $4k in furniture, $200 worth of books, $1,500 in clothes, $500 in watches ... oh and a 2006 Dodge Charger worth $7,000.
Here's the kicker ... Gary says his disposable income is only $321 a month ... claiming his bills ($14,562 a month) eat up just about all of the $14,883 he pulls in on average.
The good news ... the actor says he "anticipates major acting roles" in the future ... which can help pay off his debt.
