Eight Is Enough star Susan Richardson is desperately ill, totally broke and living in a decrepit, broken-down trailer, according to a new report in The National Enquirer.
The 60-year-old former actress, famous for playing Susan Bradford on the classic TV series that ran from 1977-1981, is diabetic, has suffered a number of strokes and has an incurable digestive tract condition that has sadly caused her to lose her teeth.
However, despite her run of bad luck, Richardson is carrying on regardless, trying to scrape by on a small pension and making canes for military veterans out of birch branches she collects in the woods.
“I don’t want to complain too much, but I’ve had more than my share of problems,” Richardson tells the Enquirer in an exclusive interview.
