I do believe that AL was paid for the jobs she did for said celebrities. Paid extremely well. She owes them as much for the publicity as they 'owe' her for the jobs they paid in full. I'll leave my pity for those who can barely afford food and housing rather than have some celebrity bailed out to the extent of not having to sell some of her houses. I find it sick that people would want people bailed out of not having to sell houses they own as an investment (especially when it's their own fault) when there are so many who can barely keep a roof over their heads.
AL, sell the houses, pay the debt, learn from your mistakes. You will still have a comfortable lifestyle and security in your life without those houses. Many others don't have that luxury. Capitalism works both ways, I ain't going to shed a tear over your townhouses, heck they were an inheritance anyway weren't they, it's not even as if you paid for them is it?
Disregarding the accuracy or otherwise about whether Ms L did or did not inherit, it is as beside the point as was your earlier remark about the plight of the world's impoverished.
This has nothing whatsoever to do with that or them; this is a one-off that was proposed as a solution to one individual problem. Nobody asked for your kindness nor for mine; we are both excluded as doners by dint of being relative nobodies in the grander scheme of things. The undenied and uneniable poverty in this world has ever been and will ever continue; there are simply too many of us to have it otherwise and too few of us have anything much to contribute to the world economy to ever change that. Hell, even those of us with years of education and employment experience behind us can, and often do, find ourselves on the industrial waste heap.
Do try and get this straight, once and for all: this is not, never was intended to be, a general appeal for charity from the likes of the ordinary citizen; it was a suggestion for the ultra rich to reach into their wealth and use some of it to bail out one of their own. A matter of perspective and relativity; not a shake-down for your
Your sympathy for the world´s impoverished is a fine thing; honorable and shared by most of us here, I suspect. I repeat: this and they are not connected, and neither is the (possible) supply of money; no competition exists for the same wallets. I refer you back to the meerkat ads, if you get them in your locality. Thimple?
