    The first photo looks like it was from 20 years ago and 20 lbs lighter. Second photo she's just another woman scared to death to look old and has had some unfortunate PS. She's not all bad she seems to have a puppy.

    She looks a bit of a fright, but seems like a very generous, philanthropic lady.
