Leona Helmsley Leaves $12 Million to Dog Hotel magnate Leona Helmsley died last week at the age of 87. Today her will was made public. The so-called "queen of mean" left billions to charity, along with millions to two grandchildren but nothing to two others "for reasons," the will says, "known to them." Her chauffeur got $100,000.

Attorney Gina Barry specializes in people with animals at Bacon & Wilson, a law firm in Springfield, Massachusetts.
