At Least Shannon Is Still Making Money!

| Filed under: Shannon Elizabeth

Good for her?

Shannon Elizabeth came in second place winning $80,000 in the World Series of Poker "Ante Up for Africa" at Rio in Las Vegas.

Professional poker player Phil Gordon took the top spot with $129,086 in winnings, which he gave to Refugee International and Project Enough.

We wonder if Shannon donated her winnings or kept them for herself — she must be somewhat of a charity case these days since she's not actually a working actress!

    Wasn't she stealing money at poker games in her home recently? There's no way that money's going to charity.

    I remember back in the American Pie days when all the guys I knew were drooling over this chick. Now she's not even Z-lister. Just goes to show that beauty doesn't necessarily open all the doors, you gotta have the talent to back it up.

    You know Acting isn't a 9to5 job some of these people will go years in between gigs. And they can afford it.

    way too skinny,try modeling



  10. 10

    Um, when you're playing for charity, like "Ante Up for Africa," it's understood that anything you win will go to charity. She doesn't have the choice to keep a penny, I don't think.

    Who writes these blogs??? Apparentaly it's a fourth grade drop out, because this imbecil is constantly mispelling, and using the wrong terms!!! Sooooo annoying! Shannon should do what she wants with the money she worked hard to win.

    Re: cali kitty – LOL Theres no way..Oh nm..Since you have kitty in your name Im assuming you're a girl..LOL yea, Don't be jealous you fat ass go run on the treadmill.

    Do skinny people constantly tell you you're "way too fat"? Id imagine so.

    She kept it. She holds poker games at her house in LA. She hardly ever plays but collects mad cash since she is "the house". She's a shyster who gives lady players a bad name.

    Are you using cheap Mexican labor to take care of your posts? That's the only way I can think possible to have so many spelling and grammatical errors in about 5 sentences. Congrats.

    Mario there are a lot of actors and actress's who are out of work. She is not the only one. Next time you eat out check out your wait staff most are out of work actors. Yeah, the way of the world is affecting them too. I'm glad she is not drunk and driving. She could be worse off. I think it takes talent for winning that kind of money. Kudos to her on no matter what she plans to with the money! Go girl.

    She's one of the TOP celebrity poker players out there. You can say its her 2nd career. She's been doing it since 2005 (I think). She goes out and plays at least 3 times a month. Coming in 2nd to a professional didn't nudge you to dig a little beeper to see what she's been up too? I guess its easier for you to make fun of people like a little ignorant bitchy school girl. Its a fun and easy way (for her) to make money, and lots of it. She'll do movies again when she's ready. Her last movie was out this year. (Lol I was going to say straight to dvd so I typed STD…but, um, it didn't look to good). And I'd double check that story you wrote about her allegedly stealing money last month at a poker game held at her home.

    What - is your day not complete until you diss Shannon Elizabeth? What has she ever done to you - you moronic, imbecilic idiot!!! She is the most caring, generous person you will ever meet but wait you've already judged her sight unseen.



  18. 18

    You're so hateful Perez/mario/or his fat ugly sister….

    LOL! If you did you job you'd know that she's a poker player now and hasn't been acting for a while. You're such a clueless retard Perez.

    She's referred to poker as her current "second" career - She doesnt seem desperate for money or desperate to work as an actress. Nice of Gordon to donate his winnings. Classy move and a great tax write-off. But Shannon had no need to similarly donate her winnings, over half of which will go to taxes. Give her a break. Not everybody works for free.



  21. 21

    Thank god she is so smart and beautiful. Now keep your money and instead of giving it to an "unsustainable continent" like Africa. Their carbon output is killing us!

    A percentage of all of the player's entry fees would likely go to the Ante Up For Africa charity, with a portion of that going to the winnings.



  23. 23

    LOVE Shannon! She is lovely!

    Poker? You hardly know her.

    Guys, Shannon didn't play any tourney on her own dime, and especialy not the Ante Up For Africa Charity Tournament. She had 2 different guys pay her buyin. No idea how she got those guys to pay her buyin, but one of them only agreed to give her 2500 towards her buyin on the condition that if she were to win any of the money, she would give his half to charity. The other guy split the other 50 percent with her, and he too gave his money to charity. Shannon didn't spend a penny to play in that tourney where the whole idea is to give everything back to the cause. She did however keep 25 percent of what she won. She never donated a cent of what she was allowed to keep. That's the kind of person Shannon is. Annie Duke even says in an interview "Thank God Phil Gordon won." Shannons a liar. A manipulator. And a homewrecker. She goes after married men and will scheme at all cost to beneifit herself.

    Re: samanthaG – Shannon's Ex husband is Joe Reitman who is Annie Duke's current boyfriend. Somebody is a homewrecker in this group and it isn't Shannon. I think it is pretty cool of Shannon to remain friends with Joe and Annie. Most poker pros have sponsorships including Annie and Joe. This was a charity event I am sure Shannon paid for her own fee.

    She's broke. Friend of mine paid her buyin. She flirts with him to get what she wants. He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer. He likes her attention though. But he only gets it if she needs something. She abuses her fame.
