Like many Americans, the Eight Is Enough and Charles In Charge actor has been enduring extreme financial hardships.
His descent into poverty is shown in Broke And Famous: Willie Aames, a special premiering tomorrow (Nov. 5) on VH1.
After a slew of bad investments and fancy splurges, Aames lost it all.
He was so broke, he was sleeping in parks and garages, and didnt have a home, car, computer, or even a phone.
Aames sold all his possessions to make a quick buck, and admits the process was shameful.
However, hes slowly getting back on his feet.
With mentoring, he recently passed exams to become a certified financial planner and spends all day studying the basics of budgeting.
Aames can tell hes learning because he can now hang on to a $5 bill for more than a month without spending it.
