    Vargas stated he had about half of his winnings left so I hope he spend it wisely and makes money off of it.  Stafford, just went overboard on spending with her Royles Rorce, gold chairs, bags, and paintings.  I think she stated she hired a attorney and financial advisor and she still went broke?  Jesus.  Enjoyed the show.

      May 2007 to January 2016 to run through millions of dollars.  Buying what? I wonder.  She was set for life and blew it.

        Can't find any proof of her filing for bankruptcy.

        I also looked and didnt find anything.  Not the person listed in Florida.

        The show stated she filed January 6 so that was not too long ago.  Even though it came as no surprise I feel sorry for her.  Rags-to-riches-to-rags and shock, no mention of the gold digger "husband".  All that money gone.

          She got about $45 mill after taxes. More than enough to last her a lifetime if she had spend it wisely. Then she split it with her father and brother, donated a million to charity. Buy Bentleys, expensive paintings etc... plus her failed movie investment. She also said she lost money in the stock market. At least in the end she got to live out her dream.

            I wonder if she paid off her house and put some money aside for property taxes every year.  Because she has a bunch of kids living with her.  I don't understand why lottery winner can not just live a simply lifestyle.

              I feel sorry for the kids. They had it made. Now, who knows where they will end up. She could put the money in to safe investments. Even if she was only making $200,000 a year in interest, that's plenty to buy an upper middle class house, car, and take care of those kids.

                And wtf was Vargas thinking? He tried to go up against a multi-billion corporation that's been around FOREVER! Yes, it was his dream. However, he should have had the forethought to understand that the wrestling show was going no where. I heard he went to film school. He could've made low budget movies and tried to strike gold like Paranormal Activity.

                  Or just get your money and just chill for a while and not open any businesses that they know nothing about.  Like stafford, didn't she open a movie business in LA with the other movie places like paramount.  Not smart.

                    And no one has heard anything about the father or brother doing lavish things with their share.  Smart.

                          She may ask for handouts in order to take care of those kids. Her father and brother would be smart to say no. Sorry, but you blew a huge amount of money. You gotta learn something. Maybe, she'll use the Secret to win another $112 million.

                              Last year I'd said that if Cynthia hadn't filed for bankruptcy yet, it meant all her lavish spending was a ruse to simply look like she's spending money when she really wasn't. But here it is, I was simply one year too early. Boy, her sister must be cackling with glee. Queen Nefertari Productions tanked years ago. That's the point at which she could have dialed back on her spending and still be okay. She had no problems telling people no, so that wasn't the problem.  $20 million take home is still a lot of money even with 5 dependents. She gave good financial advice on CNBC so she has some financial awareness. No excuse for this. She should have been able to buy her handbags, house and Bentleys with millions more to spare. Absolutely no excuse for this.

                              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                              The odds are about the same.
