Ed's Wife-- Shopping Him Into the Poorhouse

6/17/2008 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The one word that's turning Ed McMahon from baller to beggar: Plastic.

Our sources tell us Pamela McMahon, Ed's wife of 16 years, is literally spending him onto the street. We hear she's completely "oblivious" to the late night legend's cash troubles, and shops like their life depended on it. Her AmEx bill is legendary -- the couple reportedly owes them nearly $750K.

That's causing an issue for Ed's friends, who are conflicted about bailing him out. They don't want to see their 85-year-old friend foreclosed on and homeless, but they also don't want to encourage Pamela's passion for Prada.

And to add insult to injury, now Donald Trump wants to exploit Ed's sad situation for publicity. The blowhard famewhore has made a public "offer" to help the "Bloopers" star, but that's news to Ed. Trump's only reached out to the public -- not the McMahons -- as you think he might. A source close to Ed tells us the "people who are talking publicly aren't necessarily the ones who are helping." We hear there are others who "quietly" are trying to assist.

Ed's rep denies Pamela's spending is the reason for their troubles -- the rep says she's not "extravagant."

I saw a snippet of their interview on Larry King. Based on the way Ed was looking at the Mrs. while she talked, I don't think there's any love lost. It was a look of thinly disguised tolerance, as if he thought she was full of baloney but was biting his tongue from saying anything.

The men who marry younger women to satisfy their, um, needs because they're unable to tolerate the inevitable female imperfections that come with aging gracefully should be bashed as much as the younger women who marry those men to enjoy some sort of financial freedom. In other words, if you're going to slam the so-called gold diggers, why not call the men what they are: dirty old men.

Insert comical name here    

Sounds to me like she probably has some sort of emotional/mental problem. He should have sought help for her long before it became a huge problem. Some people use shopping to compensate the same way some use food or gambling or alcohol or whatever.

This just goes to show that Hugh Hefner ain't no fool. He keeps his bitches on an allowance and short leashes.

LMAO @ you a$$hats    

Yeah I saw them on the Dog Whisperer and was thinking, yeah here's this mid 50's decent looking broad with this old decrepid fart. Yeah she's not a "gold digger". LMAO!

He deserves what he get's, and it still is hard to believe he isn't worth 10's of millions.

Kathie is a phony    

I said this from day one! Knew she was only in it for the money! The gold digger probably didn't figure he's live this long, and would cash in on the will. Doesn't he have kids that can intervene? Somebody needs to pry her talons off this guy, and get him into a home. What a disgrace after making all those millions and living the good life to have to die destitute in a nursing home. Do you think this tramp is going to take care of him? HAHAHAHAHA! I think not, once the money dries up!

Sorry, but I have no sympathy for people that make millions then "boo hoo" to the press because they piss it all away! It doesn't matter how much you have, you still have to live within your means.

I watched portions of their interview with Larry King and thought to myself she must be drunk - or something. She babbled on and on and on about nothing. Ed would have been better served to do that show alone.

remember his poor wife never owned a home until Ed...she never had a charge card until Ed. She sounded like a moron on Larry King. She's not disabled, she can find a job.
