Anne Heche can't afford child, spousal support

Tbdanneheche051608 Anne Heche may have flipped out on ex-husband Coley Laffoon on a regular basis, but one thing she apparently can't do on schedule is pay her court-ordered spousal support. Since the cancellation of Men In Trees, which even tbt*'s former entertainment editor couldn't bring herself to watch anymore, she can't cough up the $14,798-per-month stipend she's supposed to pay (not including their son Homer's private school tuition), People says.

"I am continuing to look for work, but I have no offers pending and the impending strike by the Screen Actors Guild reduces my prospects for work even further," the 38-year-old wrote in court documents. Superior Court Judge Gail Ruderman Feuer is going to let her slide on July's payment, but told Heche to provide updated income and expense information.

Heche said the only income she has for the year is a $65,000 check for movie work, or about the same as one episode of Men In Trees. In addition, E! Online says she's apparently $364,000 in debt, with only about $35,000 in the bank. We think that's just fine though, since that's about as much as the entire tbt* staff makes in a year.
