Nicole’s GoFundMe page read:

Please help me and my family as we have exausted all of our funds. We spent all of our money on lottery tickets (expecting to win the 1.5 billion) and are now in dire need of cash. With your small donation of at least $1.00, a like and one share, I’m certain that we will be able to pick ourselves up from the trenches of this lost and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again! PLEASE, won’t you help a family in need. DONATE NOW.

In exchange for donations, Nicole promised to make people her #MCM (Man Crush Monday) or #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday).

    On one hand, I feel for her. It’s a bad position to be in. On the other hand, as is blatantly obvious, she got caught up in ‘Powerball fever’, and put herself in that position. It’s no different than people here who cash their paychecks, go to the casino boats and lose it all. They’re willing to gamble everything they have against odds that are purposely stacked against them. Then when they lose it all….

    Sorry lady, you’re on your own. Goodnight.
