Quote of the Day

Back in the 90s, Patrizia Reggiani (who once uttered, "I would rather weep in a Rolls-Royce than be happy on a bicycle,") was sentenced to 29 years in prison for successfully ordering the hit of her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci (heir to the Gucci fortune), because she wanted more alimony.

Fast-forward to this week. Patrizia is up for parole. When she went in front of the board at San Vittore jail in Milan, here's what she said: 

"No, thanks... as it would mean getting a job, and I have never worked a day in my life. I would prefer to stay in my cell and water my plants and take care of my ferret." 

Wow. Just... wow.
