My guess is she had about $100,000 or less saved. There are clues. She apparently was living in a pretty shitty apartment. She did have modeling work but it was sporadic. Even if she did some shoots in Europe, big deal. They paid for her flight, hotel room and maybe she got paid a couple of thousand a day for a few days work. It's still expensive to live in New York. She had to spend a lot on clothes. For every model that's working there are thousands of girls to take her place. Only the top models can command big money. For her small, unimportant few movie roles she would be lucky to get $5000. You would be shocked what these actors get paid for their initial jobs. It's next to nothing. I always laugh when Howard said Beth had her own money.
