Just announced on CNN. No news stories yet at Google News.Her funeral should be interesting...Wonder if any of the "little people" will show up?

Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

Seriously, who could resist such a lovely face?


NEW YORK - Leona Helmsley, the hotelier who went to prison as a tax cheat and was reviled as the "queen of mean," died Monday at age 87.

Helmsley died of heart failure at her summer home in Greenwich, Conn., said her publicist, Howard Rubenstein.

re: Queen of Mean Leona Helmsley dies at 87

Helmsley and her husband, Harry, ran a $5 billion real estate empire that included managing the Empire State Building. She was tried in 1989 on tax evasion charges in a sensational trial that included testimony from disgruntled employees who said she terrorized both menial and executive help at her homes and hotels.

Her image was sealed when a former housekeeper testified that she heard Helmsley say: "We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes."

Here's hoping her home in the afterlife is smack in the heart of the ghost gayborhood.

She had one?! (there, got that one out of the way early on)

Heart failure? But wouldn't that imply she'd had one?

My eyes, my eyes!

Brezhnev in drag!

I know we shouldn't speak ill of the dead... but she looks like she died years ago, and they forgot to tell her.

I think Brezhnev would be insulted by that comparison.
