Russell, who is an investor, said in court documents that he had less than $50,000 in assets with his debt being somewhere between the 1 to 10 million range.
As for the reason for the bankruptcy filing, Russell revealed he earned a ton of money during the 1990’s “dot.com boom” but apparently took a huge financial hit when everything crashed. Things also went from bad to worse following 9/11, an IRS dispute, and a “costly” palimony lawsuit filed by a former fianceé.

Part 1 of the Real Housewives of DCreunion aired last night and it did not dissapoint, so let’s get right to the recap!
The reunion starts out with host Andy Cohen asking the ladies what political party they are aligned with. Mary and Lynda are registered Republicans, with Stacie and Michaele being Democrats. Something tells me the Democratic party would rather do without Michaele’s support.
Andy wastes no time in getting down to business as he brings up Michaele’s BS MS claims. Lynda, along with the rest of the world, isn’t buying it and wants to know how Michaele could live & eat the way she does all while having MS for 17 years. Another aspect to this claim that hasn’t been discussed is why and how Michaele never mentioned the MS on the show.

After weathering the storm of a sex tape release, a new Life&Style article is insinuating that there is trouble in paradise for former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson and NFL hubby Hank Baskett.
According to the magazine, Kendra, 25, has decided to move to LA without her husband, who will remain 1,500 miles away from her in Minnesota.
“She’s moving back to LA,” an insider reveals to Life & Style. “It’ll happen in mid-October. She made the decision firmly and told Hank.”
The insider adds that Hank is not happy about the move and having to be away from his wife and 10-month-old son Hank Jr. “Hank is pissed,” says the insider. “The fighting between Kendra and him is bad. They’ve had teary fights and crying fits. They’ve been screaming at each other. He can’t understand why she won’t come to Minnesota. Every day is torture for him.”
The mag reveals that the real reason Kendra is moving to LA is to focus on her career as her Kendra reality show on E! is one of the main sources of stability in her life. Plus Hank has spent the past 2 years of his NFL career playing in at least 3 different states.
“In her mind, it’s not her fault Hank can’t keep a job,” a second insider tells Life & Style. “She has a job too — plus friends in LA and family in San Diego. She’s not going to Minnesota and destroy her career.”
