ROBIN WILLIAMS RETURNING TO TV BECAUSE HES BROKE

Robin Williams covers the latest issue of Parade magazine. 

Robbin Williams talks about having to return to TV because he has no money left.  Two divorces have caused him to loose almost all his money.  It was either go do stand up from city to city or get a job on TV.  Here is what Robin shared:
Back to TV: “It’s fun. I’m having such a blast doing it with Sarah. She’s a sweet woman. And the idea of a father-daughter relationship—since I have a daughter, I’ve done the research on that.”
Returning To TV: The idea of having a steady job is appealing. I have two other choices: go on the road doing stand-up, or do small, independent movies working almost for scale [minimum union pay]. The movies are good, but a lot of times they don’t even have distribution. There are bills to pay. My life has downsized, in a good way. I’m selling the ranch up in Napa. I just can’t afford it anymore.”
Being broke: “Well, not all. Lost enough. Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it ‘all the money,’ but they changed it to ‘alimony.’ It’s ripping your heart out through your wallet. Are things good with my exes? Yes. But do I need that lifestyle? No.”
On drinking again: “One day I walked into a store and saw a little bottle of Jack Daniel’s. And then that voice—I call it the ‘lower power’—goes, ‘Hey. Just a taste. Just one.’ I drank it, and there was that brief moment of ‘Oh, I’m okay!’ But it escalated so quickly. Within a week I was buying so many bottles I sounded like a wind chime walking down the street. I knew it was really bad one Thanksgiving when I was so drunk they had to take me upstairs.”
Being in Rehab: “It was not an intervention so much as an ultimatum. Everyone kind of said, ‘You’ve got to do this.’ And I went, ‘Yeah, you’re right.’”
On USO tours: “I do those because it’s like the real version of Good Morning, Vietnam, meeting people and seeing what I can do to help. They’re the best audiences I’ve ever had. The most powerful experience is visiting the wounded in hospitals. A friend of mine’s doing a program in San Francisco at a veterans’ hospital, getting them to do improv comedy as therapy. And it’s really helping. Comedy can be a cathartic way to deal with personal trauma.”
On  Alcohol Anonymous. “I felt so good about the first AA meeting I attended that I went out and drank the next day. And then I felt so bad that I came to the [next] meeting and said, “I screwed up. I can’t come back.” A friend said, “Why not?” I went, “I drank after the meeting.” And he said, “Hey, we don’t shoot our wounded. Come back.”
On social media. “It’s weird today. There are YouTube videos on a daily basis of assassinations, suicide bombers…. You’re inundated with images that are so brutal, and it has a numbing effect. The shock wears off.”
Do you Tweet?:“That stuff kills conversation. And people taking pictures with their phone or recording you, sometimes surreptitiously, is creepy. They come up and just start talking to you, and you can see the red light on their phone.”
What a dumbass.  Now the dude is broke.  If you are worth millions and you know they will take you to the dry cleaners when you get divorce why the fuck do you marry someone.  Just fuck a bitch once in a while.  These people are so stupid.  You don't fuck with my money.
