Huguette Clark's Empty Mansions


Huguette Clark was so wealthy she owned several mansions and Fifth Avenue apartments -- but didn't live in any of them for decades. Bill Dedman tells the remarkable story of the copper heiress in his book, "Empty Mansions," which I discussed with him on my America Weekend show. He explained why she spent 20 years living in a hospital despite not being sick, how she was treated, and how her family had no idea where she was. We also discussed the settlement that was reached Friday after a lengthy battle over her estate, worth over $300 million.
