Mom With $135,000 In Credit Card Debt Who Spends $400 A Month On Starbucks

This lady who appeared on Oprah lives the life of a big house in the burbs, new cars, six beautiful kids, and spending way beyond her husband's $5,000/month salary. Felice drops $400 a month on Starbucks, $240 on tans and manicures, and her children have no health insurance.

"I have six kids and I sell their toys sometimes just because I don't like them." When money runs dry, as it often does, she takes out cash advances. She handles the family finances and hides receipts from her husband underneath a baby blanket in a drawer.

"When I do shop, I do kind of get a rush. It makes me feel good... but afterwards, though, I get depressed. I'll buy something even if I really don't like it because I have to come out with something."

They're on the brink of being totally financially destroyed with $135,000 in credit card debt, $1,700 a month for three cars, two mortgages at $685,000, and are two weeks behind on their mortgage payment. Before you make Felice out to be the totally baddie, the husband is just as culpable for not asking more questions and making sure the numbers add up. He even says that he would get credit card bills and not know where $10,000 of it came from. Source.

Wife listens in as husband is killed in car vs. train crash

A man was on his cell phone with his wife when he crashed into a freight train on Tuesday, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Investigators said they are unsure whether Santiago Cadena, 33, was trying to beat the train or didn't see it coming before the crash happened around 2:30 p.m. Cadena's wife told authorities that she overheard the wrenching, screeching crash, said DPS Sgt. Chuck Havard.

Cadena was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. Because of its weight and power, Havard said, the train was not damaged. None of its cargo spilled and no one else was injured, he said. » Article here

Sorority girls turn fine dining restaurant into a frat house

Vomit. Bar fights. Broken toilets. Sloppy drunkenness. My, how feminine and charming. It seems a visit by a UF sorority to the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City earlier this month turned into a scene that would appall Miss Manners, and now the chapter could face discipline.

About 250 UF students - Zeta Tau Alpha members and their dates - traveled from Gainesville to the historic restaurant for a semi-formal date night. By the time Columbia staff kicked them out, the group had vomited throughout the restaurant, engaged in fights, and stolen liquor from the bar, according to catering manager Caroline O'Connor.

She declined to comment further to the Gradebook, but said in an e-mail to UF President Bernie Machen: "The group turned our 102 year old fine dining restaurant into a frat house."

O'Connor said 80 percent of the students, many of them underage, arrived drunk. Guys in the group broke a bathroom toilet and baby changing table and ripped a handle off the entrance door. » Article here

A baby sitter was arrested Monday after police said they found a 3-year-old boy in his care riding a bicycle more than a mile from his home in the middle of traffic.

"The child was on the street going in and out of traffic and being chased on foot by a (white female) attempting to get him to stop," Officer David Blackwell reported. » Article here
