Willie Aames of ‘Eight is Enough’ fame files for Chapter 7
Willie Aames — former star of TV shows “Eight is Enough” and “Charles in Charge” — became caped crusader “Bibleman” while living in Olathe.
In the video series, Bibleman solves children’s problems by quoting Scripture.
But Aames may now be feeling more like Job.
After filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in 1997, Aames is filing for Chapter 7 under his given name of Albert William Upton and his Olathe address. He lists liabilities of $1,160, 901 — including $4,500 to Nordstrom and $45,000 to the former owners of KC Brake — and assets of $375,915. Aames asked his attorney not to comment on the suit.
In January, Aames and his 26-year-old son were robbed at gunpoint while in Los Angeles to shoot a reality series.
