It's Ed McMahon's wife, Pam, who's driving him into the poor house.
She's supposedly a shopaholic!
Pammy's AmEx bill is called 'legendary' — there's a reported $750K due on the card!
Ed's friends are 'conflicted' about bailing him out.
Who knows if Pammy would keep her hands off the loaned money, right?
Insiders also say that Donald Trump's public proclamations of wanting to help Ed out are probs all part of a publicity ploy.
The Donald supposedly has never approached Ed privately to offer help.
What a rat!
When reached for comment, Ed's rep denied that Pammy's spending is the reason for their troubles.
Of course…sounds exactly like something a paid mouthpiece would say!
