Her offhand remark that "only the little people pay taxes" was a fairly accurate statement back when she said it, and is still fairly accurate today.

Leona Helmsley, for years the imperious head of a multibillion-dollar real estate and hotel empire, will spend eternity in a $1.4 million suburban mausoleum with a magnificent view, alongside her beloved husband, Harry.

interesting story of how she bankrupted her son's widow...

maybe she did good works for strangers, but she treated her own like crap. She should have emulated the other old woman from NYC who passed last week, good done all the way around, and near universal acclamation. Leona... well, she's gonna come up a bit short in that goal.

She had Harry moved because new construction was obscuring his "view".

She does know he's dead, right?
