"I was homeless living in a car with my dad. We eventually got a room at the downtown YMCA for five bucks a week," revealed Phil McGraw, or Dr. Phil as he's known to the masses today. He's now worth an estimated $245 million but the talk show guru wouldn't change a thing about his past. "I cherish those memories. That was my time to learn how to deal with stress and adversity - lessons I'd never have learned any other way at this age. I learned what it meant to work hard, to stay focused and to set goals."
3 Tyler Perry - Current Net Worth $350 Million
2 David Letterman- Current Net worth $400 Million
1 William Shatner - Current Net Worth $650 Million
Its hard to believe that after the success of the original Star Trek, its beloved Captain Kirk would end up penniless. But that just what happened to William Shatner when the series came to an end. In an interview with Details magazine he revealed, "It was the early 1970s and I was recently divorced, I had three kids and I was totally broke. I lived out of the back of my truck under a hard shell." Fortunately, his luck began to change in the 1980s thanks to a renewed interest in Star Trek which led to a series of feature films and major coin for Shatner's bank account.
