The help she needs is more than just money management.  Roll Eyes

On tv to get help?  C'mon   !    I agree with the above comment...find sound advice privately by a trusted professional.

        Is this about Marie Holmes "The lottery winner" or Marie Holmes "The young black female."  Either way i think both could use some good advice!

              Hopefully she gains the sense to move away before Hot Sauce gets out of the fridge. She will hopefully reach for some Mild Sauce or maybe some Salsa.

              Mild Sauce?  LOL!

                The $3 mil bond and the $6 mil bond and about $1.5 mil in bail fees are gone forever, but the $12 mil bond she should get back since "Hot Sauce" is in the cooler now.

                So, in total, she lost about $10.5 mil worth of bond money.

                She also donated $680,000 to her church and gave away free backpacks and school supplies for 400 kids through the Marie Holmes foundation.

                if she indeed lost 10.5 million which i doubt on bail fees etc. she still has plenty left. actually if he didn't get jailed he would have drained even more out of her more than likely. so it was worth it to get rid of him. a lousy 10m won't make any difference in her future endeavors. she did fine and will continue to do fine.

                  I think all she lost was the 10% she paid the bail bondsman. If she had paid the entire amount up front she would have gotten all of it back once hotsauce showed up for his trial and sentencing phase.

                    Marie Holmes has quite a bit more money than Cynthia Stafford and it seems that she isn't as spendthrift either other than incurring the huge bail expense with hotsauce. With some good counseling, she will be fine as long as she listens and sticks to the financial plan they set up for her.

                      I'm reminded of that old saying -- Ya can't fix stupid.

                      Also. a lottery win does not change someone and make them a better person it only magnifies their flaws.

                        The last thing she needs is more attention. She should just stay out of the news, off the networks, away from hot sauce

                        and take care of her kids. She has enough money to be a private person and also get help privately. She's still making

                        bad choices. Whatever she's prompted to say there will be public info, whatever she shares will be dissected and judged.

                        If she had done things quietly, she'd be off the radar now...but bailing out that loser wasn't quiet and won't be off the

                        radar for a long time. I predict more problems. Too bad because she could have had a pretty good darn life.

                          Why was bail set so high?  Sure the guy is a <snip> but geezzzz.  You'd think 100K would have covered it.

                              she could follow in her footsteps...I can see it now. "first fix my life" then an appearance on "The lottery ruined my life"
                              and then after that maybe she'll start her own crappy Springer Spin off.
                              Its pitiful. its like the universe is rewarding the crazies.
