Former "Eight Is Enough" star Susan Richardson is reportedly broke and suffering from a long list of serious health problems.
Richardson, 60, told the National Enquirer she suffers from diabetes, has had a series of strokes, has a digestive problem that has caused her to lose all of her teeth, and is down to 60 pounds.
"I had a series of mini-strokes. Then I discovered I had a rare disorder that made my esophagus go spastic," she told the magazine (via Hollywood.com). Richardson said she lives in a "rotting trailer" in Wagontown, Pa., that she can't afford to heat.
"There's always something wrong with it. I desperately need a new trailer but I can't afford it," she said.
Richardson played Susan Bradford, the fourth oldest child, on "Eight Is Enough" for four seasons, beginning in 1977. She didn't get much work after the series, though she reprised her role in the 1998 TV movie "An Eight Is Enough Wedding."
