Eddie Griffin Broke As A Joke

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If comedian Eddie Griffin wants to avoid going broke, he better quit having kids.

Griffin stars in Eddie Griffin: Going For Broke, a reality series that follows him supporting his eight kids, two ex-wives, four baby mamas, and huge extended family.

According to his mother, the only way Griffin can truly avoid bankruptcy is to keep it in his pants.

He says, “My mom calls me George Washington because I’m practically the father of our entire nation.”

To save money in this tough economy, Griffin has vowed to stop fathering children and shop in bulk at Costco.

He also continues to tour as a stand-up comic and has released a music CD to make ends meat.

Griffin admits that years of being overly generous with his family and friends got him here, but that’s okay.

He says money “comes and goes” but his entourage is forever.

Going For Broke premieres Monday (Sep. 14) on VH1.
