Former Sitcom Star Reveals She's Homeless THR

The former star of a successful ABC sitcom revealed that she's homeless after running out of money and battling addictions, according to The Hollywood Reporter's The Live Feed blog.

Brett Butler, who starred on "Grace Under Fire" for five years, tells "Entertainment Tonight" that she "did everything but crack and needles, pretty much," according to the piece. After the Chuck Lorre-created show was canceled in 1998, she moved to a farm in Georgia. But she ran out of money and wound up in a homeless shelter, the piece says.

Butler says she hopes people will forgive her for "making someone's day miserable over the choice of a word in a 22-minute show. A lot of times, I'd be an ass and didn't even think I was." The actress is working on a comeback and is developing a reality TV show about her psychic abilities, the article adds.
