Charisma Carpenter is broke and unemployed while undergoing a divorce.
If she started selling "Buffy" memorabilia on eBay, she'd make a mint............
According to Charisma Carpenter, the writers' strike is slaying her earning capacity.
The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel star claims that the ongoing Writers Guild of America walkout has left her unemployed, and therefore without the means to afford the attorneys' fees pertaining to her current divorce proceedings, according to court documents filed Dec. 4.
In turn, Carpenter has requested that estranged hubby Damian Hardy be required to pay her legal bills.
Per her declaration, the last work the 37-year-old actress had was a Nov. 26 appearance on a TV show that has not yet been renewed or picked up. The nearly seven-week-long strike could go on for months and, even if it ends, the Screen Actors Guild contract is up for renewal in June and could prompt further labor action, she said.
Carpenter briefly guest-starred on Fox's Back to You as the single mother of a bully who has been terrorizing the daughter of the bickering news anchors played by Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammar. Grammar's character, Chuck, wants to give the kid's mom a piece of his mind—until he sees how hot she is, of course.
