Why do rich people never pay their bills? It seems Jeri’s ex-boyfriend was a deadbeat and so was she. She lived together with him in sin before hooking up with Fred! It’s all revealed in this recent article, which I will only briefly excerpt.
Money was a problem for the couple. In 1994, [Jeri] Kehn was ordered to pay $10,000 in unspecified civil damages related to a 1990 car accident in Naperville in which she swerved across three lanes on a highway and struck another car, totaling it. The outstanding balance was paid off in 1999.
In 1996, the Davidson County court in Nashville ordered a $900 judgment against [Jeri] Kehn in a case brought by an anesthesiologist, and garnished her wages at a communications company. In 1997, the court ordered a $1,700 judgment against [Jeri] Kehn for unpaid medical bills at Nashville’s Baptist Hospital and again ordered her pay garnished. But [Jeri] Kehn had left for another job, and the debt is still listed in court records as unpaid.
I suppose she just hasn’t the money, the poor dear. And her deadbeat ex-boyfriend?
[Bernard T. “Chip”] Alvey has suffered larger-scale financial woes. At one point in the late 1990s he owed $93,000 to a builder, and in 2005, the Internal Revenue Service won a $270,000 judgment against him.
And apparently they lived in sin.
The couple never married, [“Chip”] Alvey said, though the court documents involving both of [Jeri] Kehn’s medical debts give her name as Jeri Kehn-Alvey.
A hyphenated name, but no ring on her finger. How sad.
[“Chip”] Alvey, who now lives in Louisville, couldn’t recall just when he and [Jeri] Kehn broke up but said it was probably before she started dating [Fred!] Thompson. He said they haven’t spoken in four or five years.
Probably? It just gets more and more sordid. I haven’t the heart to excerpt any more. But you’re 40 now, young lady. And your hubby, Fred!, is pretending to run for President. Don’t you think it’s time to pay that $1700 bill? If you’re ever going to be First Lady (well, second, in Fred!’s case), you really need to set a positive example.
There’s so much more in the article, but I haven’t the heart to quote any more. Jeri, you’re so very.
Update: Since we get so many search engine hits for pictures of Jeri Thompson (sad isn’t it?), here’s one of her with former World Bank hunk, Paul Wolfowitz. Where was Fred!?
“Psst, Paul can you loan me some money to pay off my debt?”
(a brief hushed pause)
Together: “Hahahahahahah! Bleargh!”
Fred (offstage right): “Polish my trophy….”
(another brief hushed pause)
All: “Hahahahahahah! Bleargh!”
“Chip” (offstage left): “Jeri, is that you?”
Jeri: “Do I know you?”
(yet another pause, longer than the last)
Fred & Jeri: “Hahahahahahah! Bleargh!”
Chip sobs. Paul combs his hair.
Thompson searches for his.
The curtain falls. The audience boos.
