Micheal Vick is in the news again this week as everyone is monitoring his bankruptcy documents. Recently, it was revealed that he spent thousands just days before heading to prison on items such as a $100,000 S-Class Mercedes to drive his family to and from the jail during visits. Other documents reveal that he is putting his mother, Brenda Boddie’s Virginia home on the market because he can no longer afford the $4700/month mortgage and has hired a local realtor in Virginia to try and sell off the property:
To make matters worse, his mom, Brenda Boddie, won’t earn her $100K income anymore — because she works for Michael’s company, which is now kaput. The home is one of several Vick bought when he blew through more than $18 mil over a couple of years. We reached Vick’s mother at home and she politely declined to speak with us. (Source)
I can’t take it. Atlanta’s Fox 5 has decided to do an investigative report on The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Linnethia “NeNe” Leakes and her husband Greg. They uncovered that the eviction was VERY REAL and that it was retracted only after an agreement had been reached for the unpaid rents and the couple left because they could not afford it.
Also in the report, Fox 5 revealed that Greg Leakes was a rental manager who screwed up horribly at his job. He was sued by a client after he rented their home to a friend who walked out on the lease. The client had to hire a private investigator to find the renter AND Greg Leakes and eventually sued both for several thousand dollars.
As of June this year, Greg Leakes no longer manages properties because the state requires him to have a license.
