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.
If it seems as if you’re being bombarded with a new Housewives franchise every couple of weeks, it’s likely because you are.
The latest franchise coming our way tonight is the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The premiere episode, airing at 10/9c on Bravo, will introduce us to the six new ladies who are getting ready to stick their heads into the Bravo Housewives toilet.
While the most of the other housewives series feature unknowns, this series stars some well known names. The most famous cast member would have to be Camille Grammer, who recently filed for divorce from husband actor Kelsey Grammer after 14 years of marriage. In case you haven’t been keeping up with the divorce drama, Kelsey then went on to impregnate his new girlfriend just weeks after Camille filed for divorce, and just last week, Kelsey announced publicly that his much younger girlfriend suffered a miscarriage.
So what can we expect in tonight’s premiere? A Bravo press release states “Sisters Kyle and Kim Richards have trouble seeing eye-to-eye on anything and aren’t afraid to fight it out. Kyle, who promised her mom she’d look after her sister isn’t sure if she can keep her word with so much inter-family drama happening. Meanwhile, Lisa VanderPump happily welcomes house guests to join her and her husband Ken. Lisa’s personal trainer and close friend may turn out to be the house guest that never leaves. But in a mansion like Lisa’s, who can blame him? Join these ladies in the lap of luxury and enjoy a rich serving of drama tonight.”

Not only is Bravo officially announcing the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills today, the network is also announcing the new franchise will debut on October 14!
The premiere date is a bit of a surprise considering the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 3 is set to debut on October 4. It seems Bravo is wasting no time over-saturating us with their Housewives franchises.
And when it comes to the Beverly Hills cast, it includes Camille Grammer, who recently filed for divorce from Frasier star Kelsey Grammer, who has since gotten his much younger girlfriend pregnant. Adrienne Maloof, who is part of the Maloof family, which owns the Sacramento Kings NBA team and the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
