DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - Furniture heiress Jacqueline Levitz, who disappeared from her Vicksburg, Miss., home in 1995 and is presumed killed, has been officially declared dead. The widow of furniture magnate Ralph Levitz was 62 when her brother-in-law found the door to her Mississippi riverfront home ajar and her king-size bed soaked with blood Nov. 18, 1995. The mattress had been flipped to hide the blood, leaving family and friends to speculate that more than one person was involved. Police found tips of fake fingernails, indicating a struggle.

A tiny Renoir landscape with a romantic back story will be unveiled March 30 at the Baltimore Museum of Art - 62 years, four months and 14 days since it last was seen publicly. "The Renoir Returns" will reunite the 1879 painting "Paysage Bords de Seine" with more than 20 artworks from the collection of the Baltimore heiress Saidie May, who bequeathed her entire estate to the museum after her death in 1951. "We are thrilled to welcome this charming painting back to the museum, to reintroduce it to the people of Baltimore and to reunite it with the many masterpieces from Saidie May's collection," museum director Doreen Bolger said in a news release.

The Vagabond Players has launched its 75th season with a revival of Ruth and Augustus Goetz's "The Heiress." It's a fitting choice for several reasons.For starters, the theater's anniversary season consists entirely of favorites from past years. "The Heiress" has had two previous productions, in the 36th and 61st seasons. And, though it's a bit of stretch, there's a Baltimore angle as well. Mrs. Goetz's father was one of H. L. Mencken's publishers, and Mencken wrote the first play the Vags produced.

Trustees of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation sued a law firm accused of giving a portion of the late tobacco heiress' estate to a charitable group she did not want in her will. The Trustees of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation claim that the law firm of Katten Muchin Zavis worded Doris Duke's 1993 will in such a way that it wrongfully included The Duke Endowment, a charity created by her father in 1924. The professional negligence and breach of contract suit, filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims Duke had a "strained and distant relationship" with the Duke Endowment.

LOS ANGELES -- As Paris Hilton sees it, her main problem is that people don't understand how hard she works. "People are going to judge me: `Paris Hilton, she uses money to get what she wants.' Whatever," she said. "I haven't accepted money from my parents since I was 18. ... I have things no heiress has. I've done it all on my own, like a hustler." It was a recent sweltering morning, and the socialite, 25, was speaking at her three-story compound in West Hollywood, within valet-parking range of some of the area's hottest nightlife.

The prison memoir that Paris Hilton reportedly plans to publish may have to be brief. After only three days behind bars in Los Angeles County, the jailed heiress was released yesterday to serve out the remaining weeks of her sentence in the comfort of her Hollywood Hills home. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department cited an unspecified medical condition as the reason for the transfer, although some celebrity news Web sites reported that the problem was mental, not physical. But a court spokesman said later yesterday that Hilton has been ordered to appear in court today for a hearing on whether she should be returned to jail, according to the Associated Press.

By any criterion - story line, character development, director's vision, cast, set, costumes, and sound and light - Bowie Community Theatre's production of The Heiress is top-notch. During the opening scene, when the maid appears holding a candle to illuminate the Victorian living room, the audience is transported to a mid-19th- century upper-class New York dwelling. The action takes place within this set, an ideal backdrop for Henry James' 1880 novel Washington Square, which became Ruth and Augustus Goetz's 1947 play The Heiress.

No matter how many times conservatives point out all the Democratic millionaires, from Ted Kennedy to Nancy Pelosi to John Kerry, it doesn't matter. Those guys have noblesse oblige and it's okay for them to be rich." Betsy Newmark, conservative blogger

Some people said Paris Hilton looked as if she was going to burst into tears at the MTV Movie Awards, after comic Sarah Silverman made a joke at Paris' expense from the stage. Oh, please, if you're so fragile why spend your last night of freedom -- for 23 days, anyway -- at the MTV Awards? What about staying home with the Bible? We all know how devoted Miss Hilton is to matters of the spirit. I missed most of the MTV awards, except I did see Cameron Diaz, blond again and dazzling, handing Mike Myers his prize.

Let us now examine the strange case of poor Paris Hilton, who has been in the news again and not, you'll be shocked to know, for winning Young Humanitarian of the Year. Maybe you heard: Poor Paris is going to the slammer. A judge in Los Angeles sentenced the serial-partying heiress to 45 days in the county jail for violating her probation after a reckless driving arrest last September in which she appeared intoxicated and failed a field sobriety test. It was thought the judge might give her a break and sentence her to work release or home detention or brushing the ponies at the local polo club for a couple of hours, but it was not to be. Still, 45 days in a women's jail is not considered hard time.
