The star of Charles in Charge and Eight Is Enough, after filing for bankruptcy last year and whose house is in foreclosure, has been reduced to holding a garage sale at his Olathe, Kan., home to raise some scratch.
Among the items on sale Thursday were antiques, artwork, a piano, leather couches, a TV set, a mounted lion's head and other stuffed wildlife the 48-year-old had hunted, and movie memorabilia. Aames also signed autographs while a film crew recorded the event for a TV documentary about his life, reports the Kansas City Star.
After his stints on TV and a self-admitted addiction to cocaine, the former child actor became religious and visited schools in a superhero costume as "Bibleman." He moved to the Kansas City area in the 1990s, after filming a syndicated fishing show there.
