[ # ] Charisma Carpenter says she’s broke cause of the WGA Strike in divorce
December 14th, 2007 under WGA Strike

Charisma Carpenter, who is earning residuals from all the replays of Buffy and Angel on TNT, claims that she is broke and wants her ex to pay for her divorce costs according to E!

"At the present time, [Hardy] has the ability to work full time and make more money than I am currently making," Carpenter states. "[He] should be paying my attorneys' fees and costs…The court should uphold the spousal support waiver, but if it does not do so, it should award spousal support to me."

The 2004 Playboy cover girl says that her and Hardy's prenup includes a waiver of spousal support by both sides in the event that their marriage fails to last seven years. Carpenter filed for divorce Aug. 2.

But Hardy, who stated in a declaration filed Nov. 27 that he quit working for awhile to be a stay-at-home dad for their four-year-old son, Donovan Charles Hardy, maintains that he wasn't fully aware of what he was getting into before he agreed to the premarital arrangement.

"I do not recall any discussion regarding the waiver of spousal support, and no one explained to me what rights I was giving up regarding spousal support by signing the premarital agreement," Hardy stated.

He claims that before the couple swapped vows in October 2002 he earned $18,000 a year working as a hotel bellman and supervisor. Meanwhile, Hardy stated, Carpenter is capable of making up to $500,000 a year (what he says she earned in 2004) as an actress.

"I have recently returned to work, but I am making less than $2,000 per month and I cannot afford to go to school at this time," Hardy, a high school graduate, said.

What a b!tch. How could she be broke with all the residuals she has been making off of Buffy and Angel and Playboy? She was also slated to guest on the cancelled Big Shots, but her episodes have yet to air. She blames the strike but if it wasn't for the upcoming strike at the time Big Shots would not have been on the air long enough for her to even have a shot of role.
I watched both Buffy and Angel and it was her looks not her acting that kept her on the shows. I hope her husband who earns $24,000 a year wins out when they are in court on January 9th..
