She takes responsibility for spending like a drunken sailor...but it is sad, she could be set up for life, and instead she is drowning in debt.

"The Nineties also saw me buy a saxophone while waiting for a train in Cardiff because I fancied myself as Lisa Simpson (sax-playing daughter in the Simpsons cartoon). "

OMG I love that.

Iím 56, single, broke and soon to be homeless. This, despite a long career of well-paid, high-profile work for which I have travelled the world and lived a lifestyle most people only dream of.

Well there's your problem, dontchathink?  We could all be broke and homeless at age 56 if we "travelled the world and lived a lifestyle most people only dream of".  Ruining your shit is easy.

A lifestyle, I now see, which has left me destitute having frittered away more than £1 million with nothing to show for it.

"I blamed many factors for my demise. The recession, the changing nature of the media industry, the banks who threw money at me, falling house prices, the people who promised me work and didnít deliver: Iíve railed at them all.

But, the horrible truth is, there is only one person responsible for this mess. And thatís me."


At least she is finally starting to get it and stop blaming everyone but herself.
