Huguette Clark, a 104-year-old heiress and something of a reformed Paris Hilton, has left her 15,000-square-foot Fifth Avenue apartment for an undisclosed, nondescript hospital room somewhere in New York. Clark inherited her fortune from her father, William Clark, a U.S. senator and Montana tycoon, once the second-richest man in the U.S., and, 60 years ago, she dated a ton of hot, rich men, according to the Daily News. Now, however, her lawyer said she's "lucid but not interested in the outside world," and Clark apparently told friends that wealth was "a menace to happiness." Glamorous!
