Seems Dougie has his own issues with TPTB at Y&R now, and melodramatically cleaned out his dressing room or what was left of it a few weeks ago. He should check the mirror for stains on his t-shirt before going out, and what's with the puffy shirt?? .. lol.

By a lawfirm in Irvine who are representing a crook. Who owes me a hudge amont of money for Building without Building and Safety Permits in my condo complex. She is connected to Hawaii. And an Attorney named Chuck Kleintop. Who laundered a 20 million dollar devorce to theses crooks. Run by a Judge Choy. A judge who was taken off the bench for laundering a million dollars of the IRS’S money to his attorney friends. He was asked to step down by the IRS as a Judge . He illegally got on the bench for my case, within weeks of being taken off. Judge Choy crossed state lines to California, and locked me up in prison in Hawaii. While he illegally sold my property out from under me. With a fake deed he created while I was in Prison. By taking my name off it. A Judge in California who had jurisdiction, ordered my home could not be sold. And that Judge Choy had to register his devorce decree in California. He refused the California judges order. Evicted me, and left me homeless for 8 years without support or my property.

[quote] This current illegal action here in California, is connected to Hawaii, and Attorney Chuck Kleintop. Who colluded with Judge Choy. In L.A. an attorney who works for the the women who build without permits. Has fraudulently attached my home. Skipped the board, and broken every law in the book. I will be pressing criminal charges this week.

And why not? A lot of seniors do it as a way to stay in their own home. And in her case, she doesn't even have any kids to leave anything to, so why not enjoy that "red carpet life" at the Hollywood Museum for as long as she can.
