Leona Helmsley was a real estate investor, whom with her husband developed many hotels in New York and ended up with a net worth of $2 billion. Leona Helmsley earned her net worth through real estate dealings and her position as Vice President of a New York Real Estate firm. She was born in Marbletown, New York and passed away in 2007.
Leona Mindy Roberts Helmsley (July 4, 1920 - August 20, 2007) was an American businesswoman and real estate entrepreneur. She was a flamboyant personality and had a reputation for tyrannical behavior that earned her the nickname Queen of Mean. She was promoted by the Beber Silverstein Group and its co-founder Joyce Beber who persuaded her to call herself Queen of the Palace Hotel.

She was a chain smoker, consuming several packs a day. Helmsley would later claim that she appeared in billboard ads for Chesterfield cigarettes, but her claim remains entirely unsubstantiated.
Her first husband was attorney Leo Panzirer, whom she divorced in 1952. Their only son was Jay (1940-1982), who had four children with his wife, Mimi. Leona was twice married to and divorced from her second husband, garment industry executive Joseph Lubin. After a brief stint at a sewing factory, she joined a Ne
