Terrell Owens Breaks Down Over His Financial Problems on 'The T.O. Show' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Sep 6th 2011 5:15PM
Terrell Owens worries about finances on 'The T.O. Show'Terrell Owens is used to multi-million dollar NFL contracts, not the uncertainty of unemployment. While rehabbing his knee and trying to get back into football, he hit a low point on the 'T.O. Show' (Mondays, 9:30PM on VH1). Feeling dire about his financial situation and frustrated by his rehab, Owens couldn't help but shed some tears.

Since he could no longer count on an NFL salary, Owens was trying to be more conscious of his accounts, but the person he had managing them was nowhere to be found. "This has been going on for the last... three to four months," said Owens. "Every time I call about my accounts or what have you, he's always gone. Football season is on a standstill, so I have no income at this point. None."

His money problems range from mortgages on his properties to child support. "I just don't get it," he said. Whenever he does get it, it doesn't look like it'll be good news.

Chicago needs a receiver. beside being the windy city Chicago is also know as "The city of wide shoulders", So that may be an option for you. What Chicago does not need is a loud mouth stupid spoiled brat. Be a "TEAM" player. Take a lesson from Walter, just simply put the ball down and call it good enough, you will earn respect that way. If you do these things, I could learn to like you, lets start with that. Learn to be humble and thankful because if you ever DO get another chance Terrell, I am sure that next time it will be your last., make count do it the right way, its what Grandma would have wanted for you.

In the meantime get your house in order. Sell everything you have get a job and get a studio apartment and plead your case to get the child support reduced. That is all you can do, you are out of options. You WILL learn humility. You should learn responsibility and thankfulness and save for the future because as you can see now there is no guarantee about what tomorrow will bring.

Two things;

(1) "Spoiled". He never grew up. He still acts like a child blaming everyone but himself. So far, he has lived his life with his mouth wide open and insulted everyone around him. Because he was in such great shape it forced us to think he was just living large and held everyone accountable to his higher standard. Quickly we found out though, that in reality, he is just "stupid" and a "spoiled" brat. He did not grow up right and I, partly, blame his grandmother (whether its a slap in her face or not), for raising him this way. He never learned when to keep his mouth shut, never learned manners and he never learned that sometimes there are things that are just better left unsaid. He never learned to respect other peoples feelings and he never learned pay backs are hell. He never thought about the consequences of his own actions, and how it effected other people, partly because he was never taught too, but mostly because he was too "stupid" to understand what Grandma was trying to teach him. I have no doubt she did TRY to teach him respect.

(2) "stupid". When you wear your "stupidity" on your sleeve it does not take people long to realize that you are an idiot. T.O. was raised a narcissistic, self centered, spoiled little brat but, as far as "Stupid" goes, well that one is on you Terrell. There IS no one else to blame for that.

Every action has an opposite equal reaction. The insults he dealt out are now coming to bare, and he was too "stupid" too see it coming. He is now being forced to bow his head in humility and do some really deep soul searching. We shall see if he asks for forgiveness and learns to be thankful for what he has. I think Grandma would have wanted him to be humble and thankful. Lets not forget, she did raise him, and she had to deal with his "stupidness" too. The humble approach would go alot farther than this pride swollen aloof-ness that is so synonymous with T.O. The only one who can change that however, is, Mr Owens himself, and I don't see him getting past his "stupid" blind pride and be able to turn things around. That's why nobody likes him because, the root of the problem is, "stupid" IS what he IS. The "stupid" things he DOES are disturbing and uncomfortable to be around and everyone wants to distance themselves from that kind of self destructiveness.

The real problem for T. O. is the eventual end to this self destructive nature is a very dead end road indeed. So T.O. is at a crossroad right now. One path (that I am sure his grandma would not like) leads to inevitable and certain destruction and the other road leads to a humbler but richer, more meaningful, sustainable life and, he would be honoring his grandmother in the process because, I am sure she would want that for him, she did love him, and that is also obvious.

So, This your final wake up call T.O Which path are you going to take. I am betting on,
(1) "stupid" does as "stupid" is.
(2) too "spoiled" to think it may be his own fault and change

I could live like a king on a million dollars and that monkey cannot live with all the money he made. Too bad that just show you how stupid those jocks are. Most spend like they are rich and have no concept of saving or investing for the future.

Freeze your accounts! make a large enough withdrawal to support you and your family for a year, set up a separate account that only YOU have access to (no power of attorney), and investigate the hell out of your "advisor(s)", "family" and "friends". Take no prisoners, just like you didn't when you were with the 49ers!

THIS IS NO TIME TO CRY... it's time to take the BULL BY THE HORN & handle ya biz!!
Since you're not playing with the NFL - You got nothing but time on your hand... start investigating & find out what happened & how -- (make some pop visits to someone's office or home) THIS IS YOUR FUTURE... not the Accountant's, so he/she doesn't give a sh**t. -- Seek legal counsel - cause it's time to MAN UP & get you finances straight, otherwise you might end up @ your MOMMA's house!
I was always told that in business, "You might not be an Accountant or a financial guru; but you DAMN SURE BETTER KNOW WHAT YOUR ACCOUNTANT IS DOING AT ALL TIMES," cause at the end of the day... when the taxes, etc. come due, the GOVTMT comes after YOU not them.
It's sad, cause it doesn't seem like you got any funds set aside for a rainy day... You knew you couldn't play ball forever!!

In today's world, there's no excuse for NOT KNOWING... It's too easy to search the INTERNET & learn just about anything you want to know... if you really want to know.
T.O. put his financial future TOTALLY in the hands of someone else & they knew he wasn't conducting any audits... Now it's a lesson learned the hard way.

He obviously invested all of his eggs in some Ponzi scheme. Since when do you need to hunt someone down to get to your money??? How hard is it to set up a deep discount brokerage account and invest in broad market ETF's?

You're suppose to meet with your accountant every month and go over the bills. YOU are suppose to sign your own checks.

As far as no income.... HELLO!!!!!! there is a camera in front of you. You're silly reality show.
