Helmsley Fortune Will Not Go Solely To The Dogs- A probate judge has ruled that Leona Helmsley's fortune will not go solely to the upkeep of her and other beloved pets. Trouble, Leona's dog, received death threats after news initial surfaced that he was to inherit Billions. That proved to be a bit of an overstatement as trustees were allowed a large degree of discretion in the will. Trouble still receives around $100,000 per year in care and security detail. While Leona was widely known as "the queen of mean", it should not be lost on people that she was one of the most charitable New Yorkers in our history.
