What would i do with$17 million? A boob job, brazilian ass lift, nose job… wait a minute ( car screeching to a halt) I’m not a tranny! So, I would get calf implants, life time supply of steroids, lazor hair removal and a spray on tan ….wait another minute (car screeching to a halt) I’m not a professional Bodybuilder!

I do love to spend a pretty penny on art work and admire and have been inspired in my life by Andy Warhol ( In early 1990s covered everything in my house with tin foil to look like the Factory.

What a burden that would be.
