He should’ve retired years ago, Regis Philbin, has a son who happens to be extremely broke, due to suffering from a spinal cord defect that lead to getting his legs amputated. He is so broke, his wife decided to talk to National Enquiry about how penniless they are.
“Our finances have gotten so bad we had to file for debt consolidation, and we barely have enough money to eat. Sometimes we have to borrow money from friends to buy food!” Judy Philbin told The Enquirer.
“To make ends meet, Danny has taken odd jobs. He worked for a while at a bookstore and more recently, he’s been working 12-hour days making decorated light switch covers to sell at weekend craft fairs.
“But at this point, we don’t even have enough money to pay the $70 fee for a booth at a craft fair!”
Judy is appealing to her famous father-in-law through The Enquirer because she says: “Danny is too afraid to ask his father for help.”
His father, you know, the man whose made millions from his television show Regis and Kelly. Hopefully, this cry out for attention, I mean money will reach out to the old man and he’ll help his son out.
