Willie Aames Not in Charge of His Finances

7/29/2008 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Yeah, it's sad that Willie Aames -- aka Buddy from "Charles in Charge" -- has filed for bankruptcy. But what's even sadder is how little coin he had to begin with.

We've gotten a copy of Willie's bankruptcy filing in Kansas (where he lives) and it seems that Aames was lowballed on his low-level fame. The actor received only $14K for being on VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club" and 15 grand for his book "Grace is Enough" about his struggles with drugs and money. He's about $350,000 in the hole, total.

The last time we caught up with Willie, he and his son had just gotten jacked at gunpoint in January but it looks like the real robbery happened well before that. Get this guy a new manager!

14,000? That is all VH1 must make a killing on these so called reality shows. How does one invest in these? Might be a good deal with the Stock Marker and the Bush economy in the crapper. You can always count on the E list celebs acting the fool for a scrap of cash and a minute of fame. Willie Ames cut back on the tats and the junk food maybe you will make it? LOL> or how about get a job like everyone else ya moron!

Obviously, both Willie and Wifie are at the age they BOTH can work. When you have house, bills and children to care for, in this day BOTH may have to work. In other words get off your a$$e$ and get jobs, both of you.

$14 k for celebrity fit club? didn't his team win? I heard the other idiot, dustin diamond trying to get his pay before he appeared on one episode, so I guess they get a flat union fee and then the prizes. Where are they listed?
