Richard Johnson Page Six - June 6, 2008 -- ED McMahon's years of boozing are partly to blame for his going broke. Johnny Carson's famed sidekick - who once had real-estate holdings of more than $200 million - is in danger of losing his Beverly Hills home in a foreclosure. "You drink and you don't pay attention to your business affairs," his manager, Johnny Podell, told Page Six. "He wasn't paying attention and probably got some bad advice." McMahon, 85, who also suffered through two expensive divorces, hasn't touched a drop in more than 10 years, and needs a break, said Podell. "I'm hoping America will rally around him and somebody will have a great idea to make him a spokesman."
