Casinos to "NYPD Blue" Star: You Crap, You Pay

4/21/2008 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gail O'Grady bankruptcy problemApparently Gail O'Grady is an expert in cards, because she's jacked two Vegas Casinos around, at least according to legal documents.

Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino and Bally's/Paris Las Vegas filed paperwork in U.S. Bankruptcy court, claiming the "NYPD" star owes them a fortune. According to documents, O'Grady, who has filed for bankruptcy, owes Caesars $160,000 in gambling debts and owes Bally's $75,000. Both joints want to make sure the bankruptcy judge doesn't let Gail O off the hook.

According to the National Enquirer, O'Grady owes big bucks to casinos, credit cards, the IRS, her mortgage company as well as to family, friends and "colleagues."

O'Grady admits she took out the gambling loans, but claims the casinos knew her financial situation and knowingly threw caution to the wind.

Gail's reps had no comment.

If she's filed for bankruptcy, the casinos are going to have to eat it, whether they like it or not.

If Gail listed the casinos and the amount owed to them in her bankruptcy papers and she is broke then the casinos are SOL!

Makes me sad. Even if they know you're broke, they don't care and will continue to send invitations for junkets, etc. My father is a gambling addict. He's been in bankruptcy (and taken my mother with him down that road!) and just spent the last weekend in a casino. Which by the way, he owed money to when hey bankrupted a few years ago. They still call. ....and the thrill of possibly making some money is too much to turn down.

Get help, Gail. Sounds like an addiction to me.

Wow, nothing hotter than a babe being a degenerate gambler. Exit question -- how low will she go to get a few bucks for video poker money?

As if that excuse would work for any of the rest of us?
Might as well tell Bank One, "you knew my financial state when you gave me the credit card..."
Uh-huh, don' t cut it babe. And new bankrupcy laws may just see her liable for this debt.
Make her work it off in the strip club!! community service.

That photo of Gail is more than 10 years old. Sidenote: Gail is 4 times divorced. How can she be bankrupt? Was she spending all that alimony at the casinos?

Get naked for Playboy, She fits the requirements for the magazine being that she's no longer relevant and should've been naked 10 years earlier.

When you have a gambling addiction, the problem usually goes deeper than that, and it sounds like to me she has an addiction. You can go through so much money that you do not even realize what your going through or even what you are doing. They call it a functioning blackout. And folks, before you start all your critizing, it is for real.
