Helmsley left her beloved white Maltese, named Trouble, a $12 million trust fund, according to her will, which was made public Tuesday Aug. 28, 2007 in surrogate court, according to published reports.

Actually, I don’t know the dog, but sure wish I did. In fact, if they are taking applications for a dog caretaker, hit me up. I’ll keep Trouble, a/k/a the 12 million dollar dog, well fed and dressed. When she eats steak, so will I (can’t have Trouble eating alone, now can I?) We could also get our hair and nails done and dont’ forget the shopping. We could wear matching outfits. 🙂

Better be nice to your rich relative or you’ll be just like the Hemsley offsprings, wondering, why in the h-e double l did Leona leave a dog $12 million.

Thanks Rich for your breakdown on Leona Hemsley’s will. To read more, visit The Rich House.
