Former child star Todd Bridges was so desperate to make cash when hit TV show DIFF'RENT STROKES ended, he became a sleazy Hollywood drug dealer.
The actor was 22, out of work and in debt to tune of $300,000 (£187,500) and so he opted for desperate measures to pay off what he owed and get rich quick.
Promoting his new book, Killing Willis, Bridges tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "I worked four different hotels and I had five girls that worked on the streets."
But he couldn't stop using what he sold - and quickly became a drug addict.
He admits that was the lowest point of his life: "I hated myself. I hated the way I looked in the mirror. I believed everything people said about me."

Todd Bridges is going to be interviewed tonight by Jane Velez-Mitchell on her "Issues" tv show. From what I've seen, I feel bad for the guy--he could not help his friend Corey Haim. Will watch him tonight on the Issues show.
