Mean in Life, Mean in Death

Leona Helmsley, a woman in desperate need of a reality check, got the ultimate reality check when she kicked the bucket (a golden bucket with gaudy ass diamonds all over it, I'm sure). And then got a final lashout from the great beyond when she hosed two grandkids and gave her freakin' dog $12 million.

But her legacy will also be that awful, awful picture of her, all scrunched up and mean and bitter and looking more toadlike than human. I'm sure she was thoroughly pissed off when she realized that all the money in the world can't keep you alive. Death does not discriminate even if she did.
