As American Gladiator "Storm," Debbie Clark made $1,500 a day. The time since has roughed her up, though. She and her 10-year-old son Crayton have been homeless in San Diego for more than two years, reports AOLNews.
Clark and Crayton are in an even bigger battle than "the Assault," "the Joust," "the Atlasphere" or any of the other competitions she did on the show. She's in a fight for her life and her dignity.
Not only is she homeless and in pain from her knee injuries, she has to deal with her son's food allergies and ADHD.
"He gets sick and misses school four days a month," she said.
Clark isn't proud of everything she's done while on the streets.
"I've been drinking more than I'd like," she admitted.
Tough tale that might have started improving yesterday. Sherri Shepherd of "The View" womaned up with a promise to pay six months' rent and gas and electric costs.
