Todd BridgesFormer 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 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 Access Hollywood, "I worked four different hotels and I had five girls that worked on the streets."
However, 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."
