THESE CELEBS DIDN’T HOLD BACK ON THEIR FIRST CHECKS
Tuesday, Aug 29, 2017
Stars weren’t always making it rain when they first started in entertainment, so it’s not surprising that some stars went wild when they got their first check.
Kerry Washington recently admitted that while she was filming ‘Save The Last Dance,’ she was given a per diem and saved her money under a mattress during the filming of the whole movie. She said that at the end, her first purchase was a laptop.
Jennifer Lopez got her start as a fly girl in ‘In Living Color,’ and with her first check, she switched her old Honda that Keenen Ivory Wayansonce gifted her, for a brand news Mercedes.
LL Cool J‘s first check was of $50,000 and claimed that he had never seen so many zeros in his life! Of course, he went out to get his mom a nice Mercury Cougar and got himself a couple of gold chains. This became his signature look.
Aretha Franklin always had a fancy taste and had wished for a mink and chinchilla fur coat. Finally, when she got famous, she was able to buy one of each. Dang!
See the video above to find out how our own Dish Nation hosts spent their first checks!
