I just read teen idol and icon David Cassidy who recently passed, left his entire estate to his son. He had a daughter too but they weren't close so he left her out.

His entire estate was $150k. That was shocking. I know he was sick at the end but all those years of being in a hit TV show and being a musician amounted to very little in the end.


We talk a lot on here about money. It's still shocking someone could make millions and still blow it all and have so little in their retirement years. I mean it's not like he had a regular job where you aren't raking it in. And even then, with tremendous earnings, he saved next to nothing compared to what he earned.

I know he made good money off me with the song "I Think I Love you" that was my jam!

it good.
Play "I Think I Love You"
on Amazon Music
Ba, ba, ba, ba.
Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba.
Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba.

I'm sleeping
And right in the middle of a good dream
Like all at once I wake up
From something that keeps knockin' at my brain.
Before I go insane
I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed
Screaming out the words I dread:
"I think I love you!"

This morning
I woke up with this feeling
I didn't know how to deal with
And so I just decided to myself
I'd hide it to myself and never talk about it
And didn't I go and shout it
When you walked into my room.
"I think I love you!"

I think I love you.
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for.

I think I love you.
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way.

I don't know what I'm up against.
I don't know what it's all about.
I got so much to think about.

Hey, I think I love you.
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for.

I think I love you.
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way.

Believe me,
You really don't have to worry.
I only want to make you happy
And if you say,
"Hey, go away," I will
But I think better still,
I'd better stay around and love you.
Do you think I have a case?
Let me ask you to your face:
Do you think you love me?

I think I love you

Celebrities back then weren?t as rich as they are now, and they didn?t get the kind of royalties someone like Seinfeld gets, they call it FU money... 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 days ago -

I read he made $600k an episode, that sounds like a lot for back then. But say it's true...the show ran for a few years, he should have had plenty even if he never worked another day in his life. Not counting what he made off his hits.

When he and his wife divorced, they sold their 7000 sq ft home for 1.8 m. He filed for bankruptcy soon after in 2015. I don't get how you maintain a lavish place like that when you're broke. But hey Michael Jackson did it on a much grander scale. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 days ago -

Oops, sorry, just checked again. His salary was $600 a week. Wow, lol. Less than 100k a year.. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 6 days ago -

600 a week wasn't bad in those days. You either manage money or it manages you. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 days ago -

True, but the studios controlled everything back then. He wasn't making even close to what he would now with endorsements, public appearances and the millions in sales of products with his likeness, T-shirts, posters and such. Still, he should have never been broke. 

witchywoman --- 6 days ago -

40 years ago. Maybe you should calculate how much it cost to live per year and you can see that the little money he made so long ago has probably been gone for a while. It's called reality, Sifi. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 days ago -

Lol. His salary on the show wasn't all he made. The reality is......he was a drunk who squandered everything he was blessed to get. He made almost 90k in 1970. The average salary then was $6100 a year. Reality Witchy 

witchywoman --- 5 days ago -

Oh come on. The fact is that people that make a lot of money live differently than we do and I'm not defending his drunkenness nor referring to it. Let's remove it from the equation.

Even those that are healthy, when you make more money you spend more money and you live at a different level. And if the money doesn't keep coming in at that level you end up broke.

So what is the point of this topic? Sounds to me like it's just another one like the one you argued with Dorothy on. 

witchywoman --- 5 days ago -

Maybe if Trump's tax plan was around in David's day he's still have more money because the plan is going to redistribute wealth from the middle class to the rich. And that's reality. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 days ago -

redistribute wealth from the middle class to the rich. And that's reality.

You must live in a different reality than the real world. Over 80% of taxpayers will pay less and thats the fact. Math doesn't lie. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 days ago -

Let's remove it from the equation.

It can't be removed from the equation when its a huge contributing factor to poor financial decision making. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 days ago -

"Oh, come on....let's remove it from the equation"



Why would you? The FACT is his poor decisions is WHY he's broke. And the reality is, he made way more than any working class stiff and lost it, and his health, by abusing alcohol to the point of multiple organ failure. Some of you hate facts and it's kinda disturbing.

And some people with nothing rise to amazing levels, like Ben Carson... 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 4 days ago -

In the liberal mind, there's no such thing as personal responsibility. 

mutton --- 4 days ago -

Celebrities and money do not compare to the average person. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 4 days ago -

How so Mutton?

I actually see the same behavior. The celebs make a ton more but they go broke like they never had a Dime. It's about how you spend, appropriate and manage money. It cannot be denied when someone in the rank and file class of workers saves enough money to get through life somehow but a person making millions goes broke. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 4 days ago -

I watched a program about big money lottery winners. 3/4 of them were broke in 5 years. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 4 days ago -

A whole lot are dead, too. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 4 days ago -

It's weird, isn't it? We're kinda taught that money is the key to happiness bc it will relieve all our worries. Then when we get it, and don't have those issues, happiness doesn't occur and in fact, ruination often happens.

We tend to see working as a drudgery that we want to be free of ASAP. Truth be told, it's probably saved a lot of people. Lol

I agree. Money is a lifeline for some, and a rope with which to hang yourself for others.

His entire estate was $150k. That was shocking.



I didn't realize you were so superficial and or hung up on cash.































































Not!

LMFAO
