Girls Gone Wild (GGW Brands LLC) has filed for bankruptcy.
It appears they've racked up almost $16.3 million in debt but have less than $50,000 in assets. Pun intended.
Who will write the book on how the women --who are now in their late 20s and early 30s-- felt exposed because of their full frontals. Too much?
Or maybe the reason GGW is broke is because of all the lawsuits. I hope a judge makes former CEO Joe Francis, who hasn't owned the company in two years but is supposedly worth $150 million flash his accounting records. Some would say he's living well. I have visions of him as Edgar Allen Poe in the poem about the ticking in the wall.
The whole franchise was a sign of the apocolypse anyway. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if some fly-by-night soft porn operation isn't parked at Daytona Beach for Spring Break to try and capitalize on the market left behind by GGW.
Have that difficult discussion with your teenagers before some stranger talks them out of their tank top and they end up on some late-night infomercial. Parenting teenage daughters must be one of the hardest jobs on the planet.
