Park Overall’s Net Worth is Surprising!

Park Overall

Known for her heavy Southern accent, Park Overall has made her mark in two vastly different careers as an actress and politician. Since leaving Hollywood, she has been a women’s rights activist and fights to make a difference in politics. However, most people probably haven’t heard of her. So, what is Park Overall’s net worth?

Who is Park Overall?

Park Overall was born in Nashville, Tennessee in March 1957. Her life was always heavily influenced by politics, as it continues to be today. Overall’s father was a federal magistrate. In her adolescence, she worked on political campaigns for Tom Wiseman and Jim Sasser.

She graduated from Tusculum University with a degree in English and briefly attended a graduate program in Tennessee before moving to New York to pursue a career in acting. One of Overall’s first roles was in an off-Broadway play about Andy Warhol called Skin. After that, she played a number of other roles on stage and eventually went on to costar in a television series on NBC called Empty Nest.

Empty Nest: Breakthrough Role

Empty Nest proved to be Overall’s breakthrough role. It was on the air from 1988 to 1995 and even led to spinoff roles in other shows. At the turn of the century, she starred in a two short-lived TV series Katie Joplin and Ladies Man (1999).

Overall’s first feature role was in a film called Tainted (1988). That year she appeared in four additional films, including a voice-only role on Talk Radio.

During this time Overall was working on other projects as well. In 1995, she voiced a character in the animated series The Critic. She also appeared in several made-for-television movies, many of them appearing on Lifetime. You may have spotted her in one of her many guest appearances throughout the 90s as well. She appeared on The Golden Girls and Reba, which have both since been syndicated.

More recently, she has appeared in To Kill a Mockumentary (2006), Beer For My Horses (2008), and In the Family (2011).

Overall’s Political Life

Fun fact: Park Overall is a distant relative of President Barack Obama. The two don’t hang out much though and never crossed paths in politics.

Overall’s main moments in the spotlight have had to do with environmental causes. Most of the time, the issues Overall has taken a strong stance on have an impact her native East Tennesee. For instance, in 1995, she called out Champion International for polluting the Pigeon River. The chemicals found in the river were traced back to the company and have been tied to the high rate of cancer in Hartford, Tennesee.

It is also well known that Overall has been a critic of Nuclear Fuel Services, a company that processes uranium in Erwin, Tennessee. In the past, soil samples contaminated with uranium have been traced back to the plant.

Finally, in April 2012, Overall ran for office, hoping that having a larger role in government may help her voice be heard. She entered as the Democratic candidate opposing Bob Corker. However, she fell short of garnering enough support to break through the primaries.

Park Overall Net Worth: $3 Million

Although her political career has been fairly non-existent, she still had a small acting career before setting her sights on politics. This is what has Park Overall’s net worth sitting comfortably around $3 million.

Her best, and longest, role as Laverne Todd in Empty Nest is what earned Overall most of her cash. It should also be noted that she won three Viewers for Quality Television Awards. Additionally, Overall was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards. So, it is safe to say the film and television she’s appeared in has been popular.

It should also be noted that lived in a home in Los Angeles while she was actively performing in television and film roles. The house was sold for just over $1 million in October 2015. She currently resides in Horse Creek, Tennessee. This $1 million definitely contributed to the star’s overall wealth.

When it comes to Park Overall’s net worth moving forward, there’s no reason to believe it will change drastically. Overall isn’t currently working on any projects and was last active in politics when she endorsed Bernie Sanders in 2016.

Readers, what do you think about Overall’s wealth? Are you surprised?

Kim Rhodes’ Net Worth is More Than You’d Think

Kim Rhodes typically stays out of the spotlight unless she’s in an upcoming movie. However, she has been seen in the news more often because she has decided to speak out about women’s rights. While it hasn’t landed the Supernatural star any new gigs, it is getting her some publicity. So, what is that doing for Kim Rhodes’ net worth?

Who is Kim Rhodes?

Kim Rhodes was born in 1969 in Portland, Oregon. After graduating high school, she attended Southern Oregon University and went on to achieve a Master of Fine Arts degree from Temple University. This set her up for a career in acting and she soon landed her first role in a soap opera.

She began acting immediately after earning her undergraduate degree and performed on the soap opera Another World while attending grad school. Rhodes and Mark Pinter were nominated for a Soap Opera Digest award as “Favorite New Couple.” Her time on Another World ended in 1996.

At this time, Rhodes continued acting at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival until she picked up her role on As The World Turns. Her time on this soap opera was short-lived (only one year). From 2005 until 2011 Rhodes played Carey Martin, the mother of twin boys on The Suite Life of Zach and Cody and The Suite Life on Deck.

In 2010, Rhodes landed her role for which many people know her today. She was cast as the sheriff on the CW’s hit show Supernatural. Rhodes first appeared in the fifth season of the show and has returned every season since. While spin-offs with Rhodes as the main character have been rumored, none of the ideas have taken off the ground yet.

Other Career Highlights

That’s not to say she hasn’t had plenty of other work in the meantime though. In addition to her appearance on Supernatural, she has also appeared on a number of other television shows such as Star Trek, CSI, and Key and Peele. Rhodes has also played a number of small roles on the big screen in films like Christmas With the Kranks and Atlas Shrugged: Part 2. 

Like many other actors and actresses, Rhodes has also performed some voiceover. In her case, she has voiced characters in video games. Many people may recognize her voice from Star Trek: Away Team (2001) as Yulana Oxila and Star Trek Online (2015) as Jhet’leya. How has each of these factors impacted Rhodes’ wealth?

Kim Rhodes’ Net Worth

Kim Rhodes’ net worth is estimated to be around $6 million. Much of her net worth has stemmed from her recurring roles on television shows. Maybe TV actors and actresses are able to accrue a bit of money fairly easily because they are paid per episode. While there is no information available about how much Rhodes is paid per project, it can be assumed it is a pretty penny!

A portion of her net worth can also be attributed to the value of her home in Los Angeles. Rhodes lives there with her husband, fellow actor Travis Hodges. The couple has one daughter, Tabitha. Hodges has not had a wildly successful career, so it is not likely his finances are contributing to their collective net worth.

Rhodes does not have any publicly held investments or luxury vehicles that may contribute to her net worth either. For the most part, she stays to herself and her family when she’s not playing a sheriff, mom, or a soap opera babe on TV.

Are you surprised by Kim Rhodes’ net worth? Did you think it would be higher?

How Much Is Big Chief’s Girlfriend Worth?

Big Chief Girlfriend

If you’re a fan of Street Outlaws you know who Big Chief is and you probably know a bit about his personal life. At the end of 2017, he divorced his wife and soon after began dating Jackie Braasch publicly. So, who is Big Chief’s girlfriend and how much is she worth?

Big Chief’s Girlfriend: Jackie Braasch

Big Chief got married extremely young. He and Alicia Shearer met one another when he was 18. After years of marriage, Big Chief and Shearer decided to call it quits. Not long afterward, he began publicly dating Braasch.

Chief and Braasch have more in common than he and his late wife did. Braasch is a racing driver like Big Chief. It is assumed the couple met at a racing event and hit it off from there.

She has been enamored with racing since she was a child. Her father, a racer, introduced her to the scene and she began racing at the age of eight. Braasch grew up watching races and working on cars with her dad, which led her to pursue a career in racing for herself. Her sister, Erin, is also a racecar driver.

During her career, Braasch has competed in a number of races and has won championships as well. In May 2015, she became a Car Chix girl and regularly competes in Car Chix competitions. All of this led her to her current relationship with Big Chief and the occasional appearance on Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws but how has it all impacted her net worth?

Braasch’s Net Worth

There are no solid figures where Braasch’s net worth is concerned. However, it is safe to assume she has a net worth sitting in the six figures. Because she and Chief aren’t married, his $2 million net worth has no impact on her finances whatsoever.

Her estimated six-figure net worth stems from her prize earnings as well as mechanical work she’s done. Outside of her relationship with Big Chief, she hasn’t spent any time in the spotlight to have incredible earnings so her net worth is relatively modest.

One thing that definitely contributes to her overall wealth is the value of her Dragster, which she uses to win races. Typically, a top fuel dragster engine (by itself) is worth around $58,000, not to mention any additional modifications she’s made.

It is not yet known how Big Chief might impact her wealth but, for now, Braasch is content keeping their relationship low-key. If the pair does decide to get married, she will share wealth with Chief. However, it is important to note he will likely also have additional bills, including alimony and child support, should the pair ever get married.

For now, the couple is happily dating and both are continuing to do what they love: race.

What do you think about Big Chief’s girlfriend? Do you think they’ll eventually get married?
