She Was A HUGE Network TV Star, And Now She Is In Desperate Need Of Cash…


Beloved sitcom star from the ’90s faces financial struggles, prompting a close friend to launch a GoFundMe campaign to help get her life back on track.

Brett Butler, the renowned actor best known for her role in the 1990s hit sitcom Grace Under Fire, has recently found herself in the spotlight once again. However, this time, it’s not for her acting talents but rather her financial struggles. One of her close friends, Lon Strickler, has taken the initiative to launch a GoFundMe campaign to help Butler get back on her feet after losing her $25 million fortune to drug addiction and other issues.

Strickler’s heartfelt message in the fundraiser reads:

“Friends and loved ones are reaching out and asking for fans of actress Brett Butler to help her through her time of need. We all love and know Brett from her TV series, Grace Under Fire, as Grace Kelly, and her many TV and stage appearances. But like many others, this past year has put her in a critical situation, and desperation has set in. I’m not exaggerating using those words. It is urgent. Brett has exhausted all of her resources, and the stress of looming eviction is straining her mentally and physically.”

He continues by expressing his admiration for Butler:

“Brett is one of the kindest down-to-earth people that anyone will meet. She has helped me get through some rough times, and I feel it’s time for me and her friends to help get her through this. I have taken the initiative to start this Go Fund Me page because she is a very private person, and I know she won’t ask for help.

“Brett has many fans all over the world. I am praying hearts will open, and you will give what you can. She has made millions of people laugh over the years. It’s time to give back to her for her gift of laughter to all of us. Please help! It is urgent!”

Butler’s battle with alcoholism and an addiction to Vicodin, which was prescribed for her sciatica pain, has been a public one. She has admitted to only remembering 80 of the 112 episodes of Grace Under Fire, and her co-stars and ABC network have not forgotten her behavior and her stint in rehab.

To everyone’s amazement, the fundraiser has seen a tremendous response, raising over $40,000—double the original goal. On August 22, 2021, an emotional Brett Butler shared an update, expressing her gratitude: “Thank you. Flat out. There are way more people reaching out than I’d expected and with more kindness than I believe I deserve. To the folks who took the time to send personal messages of support, that’s been the biggest surprise of all. Some of you brought so much of that Human Being thing to the table that you helped change the way I see things – as in right now and for the better. That can change everything.”

She concluded with a heartfelt metaphor: “If you’re ever queen of the known universe for any length of time and blow up your freaking spaceship in a distant galaxy a really long way from home, angels or good friends are your only hope. And once in a very blue moon, they are rolled into one.”
