EXCLUSIVE! “Eight is Enough” star SUSAN RICHARDSON’s broke, toothless and living in poverty stricken squalor!

Former “Eight Is Enough” star Susan Richardson is in dire straits after suffering devastating health and financial problems – and The ENQUIRER has an exclusive interview with the desperate actress as well as shocking photos of the dilapidated trailer where she lives.

“I don’t want to complain too much, but I’ve had my share of problems,” Richardson told The ENQUIRER.

Richardson, now 60, shot to fame playing middle-of-the-pack daughter Susan Bradford on the popular sitcom during its run from 1977 to 1981. But she’s fallen on hard times and is wracked by medical problems that have caused her to lose all of her teeth and drop 60 pounds.

Compounding her misery, she lives in a rotting trailer in Pennsylvania – and doesn’t even have enough money to heat it!
“There’s always something wrong with it,” she said, choking back tears. “I desperately need a new trailer but I can’t afford it.”

Meanwhile, she’s lost touch with her “Eight Is Enough” co-stars over the years, but The ENQUIRER contacted her TV dad, 84-year-old Dick Van Patten, to get his feelings about Richardson’s dire situation.

It all makes for sad but riveting reading in The ENQUIRER, which also features a special report on Hollywood moms out of control. This is one issue you won’t want to miss!
