Leona Helmsley and “Trouble” the Dog: Two Prissy Bitches

When the Queen of Mean, Leona Helmsley, died recently at the age of 87 she left behind a will, like most knocking on death’s door do. But in the billion-dollar world of Helmsley (hotel owner, real-estate mogul and dead-ringer for The Joker) no request was too wild.

Leaving the majority of her blood ties with nary a nickel Helmsley left her dog, Trouble, with $12 million dollars in her passing. That’s right – a furry little pooch by the name of “Troubleâ€? has more money than you will ever see in your lifetime. Kibbles n’ Bits indeed.

I love animals; I just don’t give them millions of dollars to sustain a posh lifestyle that’s completely out-of-touch with reality.

Some will scoff at my standpoint and state that Helmsley also donated millions-upon-millions of dollars to charity.

Fair play – just not entirely fair.

When one makes a million-a-millisecond and donates to charity only to keep a shining reputation intact, I can scoff. Especially when her employees were reportedly treated like dogs, pun graciously intended.

It’s times like these where Michael Vick’s attitude towards dogs seems completely justified. Throw the man a bone.
