Even the rich and famous struggle financially sometimes, proving that making a ton of money doesn't prevent celebs from overspending or making bad decisions.
Christy Carlson Romano and Shia LaBeouf co-starred on the hit Disney show 'Even Stevens' when they were teenagers. Shia LaBeouf went on to become a major star, but the world sort of lost track of Carlson Romano. She went on to voice the lead character in the animated series 'Kim Possible,' and ended up going to university. She was earning a great deal of money at the time but didn't invest any of it or buy a house. She cut ties with her family after college because she didn't like how they managed her finances and went on a spending spree in an effort to make herself feel better. Carlson Romano admitted she never really learned how to manage her money and now wants her own daughters to be educated about their finances. She ended up making and losing millions in those early years, and is sharing her story as a cautionary tale.
