I agree that Bravo probably pays the bills. Thank God I have no experience with bankruptcy, but as I understand it, one can still have cash on hand - bankruptcy means you can't pay the total of all of your bills, so everything is frozen with your creditors until you can work it out - they can't sue you, you can't borrow. The courts don't necessarily come along and clean out your bank accounts first (as they do with seniors going into nursing homes , but I digress). From what I've seen, people pretty much go along with their lives under bankruptcy (they get a nasty credit ding) while they're negotiating settlements - and I understand they can't incur any more debt until everything is resolved. Anyone know if this is correct?
