Leona Helmsley Gets Charitable From The Grave
Sure, she was once dubbed, “The Queen Of Mean”, but you can’t stay mean forever-or at least you can’t “stay” forever. Indeed, it looks like Leona Helmsley is doing her most generous work…from the grave.
A collection of Leona Helmsley’s swanky threads — including but not limited to — her famous Ferragamo flats, nearly a dozen fur coats (PETA members stay in your seats), and the suit she wore to prison, will be auctioned off this spring at Leslie Hindman Auctioners in Chicago.
The collection rocks designers like Bob Mackey, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior, with the estimated price tag somewhere around 100,000 dollars.
The good news: before Helmsley died she requested that all her property be auctioned off and the proceeds given to the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
Well it looks like the woman who once famously said, “We don’t pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes”, is finally gonna help those little people pay them.
