It amazes me how celebrities think they can live the good life, spend spend spend and not think about the consequences. Sadly one doesn’t have to be a celebrity to get into the kind of trouble that has seen Kerry been declared bankrupt twice in 5 years.
But who is at fault or to blame for allowing Kerry to fall into financial ruin twice?
The cowboy loan shark sites such as Cash Lady, which funny enough was the company Kerry was recommending, Wonga, Pounds to pocket etc. They offer a quick money solution at ridiculously high interest rates (high being exorbitant by any sane or intelligent person. We are talking hundreds and even thousands of percent).
It is funny (not) how these ex rich folk always blame bad financial management after they declare bankruptcy. There they have been living the high life for many years and not paying the correct tax and then boom, one day it all catches up on them.

UKCV: Jonathan Ross, Chris Moyles, Barbara Windsor, Graham Norton and Terry Wogan will be among hundreds of big names left worse off. That is hundreds of millions of pounds the BBC, Channel 4 and ITV could be saving if they insisted these over paid idiots (some of them) take a 50% salary cut. It’s not as if they are hard done by, considering most of them are multi-millionaires and have been overpaid for years.
Jonathan Ross pictured on the left is reportedly paid 18 million pounds for presenting his chat show / tv show. He will have his 3 year contract slashed by 4.5 million pounds. The poor man is going to be totally distraught losing Â£1.5 million a year. He was recently suspended for 3 months for his part in a prank call to Andrew Sachs, so it’s amazing how the BBC feel the need to pay this jerk so much money each year?
Here are a few more well known UKCV facing huge salary cuts:
Chris Moyles (Loud Mouth DJ)
2009: Â£472,000 (-Â£158,000)
Davina McCall (Big Brother Presenter)
2009: Â£400,000 (-Â£100,000)
Graham Norton (Camp Chat Show Host)
2009: Â£1.9MILLION (-Â£600,000)
