"L Word" Star - Burn Me 32 Times, Shame On Me

8/25/2008 8:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rose Rollins admittedly has a thing or two to learn about business. And after what she's alleging in a lawsuit, no jury in the world would doubt her.
Rose Rollins: Click to view docs!
In the suit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Rollins, who played a military chick on "The L Word," claims she began a "confidential relationship" with the defendant, Ramon Cartznes, back in 2003. Apparently things went south, because Rollins says the dude took her for all she's worth.

Item: Rollins claims she gave Cartznes $30,000 for a piece of investment property and he fraudulently put it in his name and that was that. She says she's out the money.

Item: Rollins claims she and Cartznes opened several credit card accounts and he racked up $53,689 in charges that he hasn't paid.

Item: Rollin claims Cartznes racked up a cell phone bill of $6,991 that he refuses to pay.

Item: She claims he owes her $2,265 for money she fronted to Cartznes' daughter.

Item: He stiffed her to the tune of $22,064 on Range Rover payments.

Item: In another real estate deal, Rollins alleges he cheated her out of $54,321.

She's suing for nearly $300,000 plus punitive damages. In the suit Rollins says she is "very unsophisticated as to business matters." Duh.

UPDATE: Cartznes, through a rep, tells us, "Rose's allegations in the lawsuit filed against me are completely false. I have the financial records to prove that I owe her absolutely nothing. The information in the lawsuit is untrue and slanderous. I must take all appropriate actions to protect my good name and reputation. Due to the pending litigation, I'm unable to go into details at this time, however, I look forward to defending myself in court against this ludicrous matter."

Can anyone really be THIS naive or dimwitted?

Almost $7,000 in cell phone charges? I think he needs an unlimited plan! I can't imagine what he did to rack up that much.

Stupid B*tch!! It isn't about not about having business "smarts", it's all about your dumb azz gettin' PLAYED.

Next time keep your wallet and your mouth shut about about your financial assets and you won't get rail-roaded by some greedy punk!!!

What's a confidential relationship? Is that when you're dating a confidence man?

Kiss it all goodbye, honey. He never had it so good, and you should have known better. The headline sums it up.

I've met this ramon cartznes guy around before. To homey up top who claims she's a gold digger and he got her the job on the L word is trippin. It's a vigorous process of auditions and call backs to gain a starring role in a show such as the L word. This broke ass dude knows no-one and has no connections. I goggled his name and all I see is a dumb crook who already got locked up for bein grimey! check it out ya self.

Why is it that women are so happy to give over their hard earned cash all in the name of "love?" Here's a hint ladies, if your SO starts asking for large amounts of money on a regular basis, run for daylight!!
