Best known as the beloved character of Bo Duke on the 80’s series The Dukes of Hazzard, John Schneider was re-introduced to a whole new set of fans when he appeared on Dancing with the Stars last year. But little did anyone know just how dire life has been for the New York native.

In a new interview with The Tennessean newspaper, Schneider says that he currently owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, spousal support and back taxes. Schneider also continues to financially recover from the floods that caused much damage to his property and belongings at his Louisiana ranch back in 2016.

However, Schneider believes that there are brighter days ahead, and those brighter days will come with the help of his current love Alicia Allain.

“I’d like to have a billion dollars and I will — and I think it’s sitting in that laptop right there,” Schneider says in the interview, referring to the songs and movie scripts he has been writing alongside Allain. “She has a similar dream as a producer. I’m not a numbers guy. She gets numbers. She knows what not to say. I don’t. She has a filter. I don’t. So we’re perfect together.”
