Princess Nut Job

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York woman who posed in high-society circles as a Saudi princess pleaded guilty on Tuesday to grand larceny and insurance fraud and was ordered to a mental hospital.

Antoinette Millard (left), 42, used a special credit card to spend nearly $1 million during a three-month shopping spree. She also bilked an insurance company of more than a quarter of a million dollars....

At high-society events with celebrities and socialites, Millard introduced herself as "Princess Antoinette" and said she was also a former Victoria's Secret model.

In reality, Millard was a former vice president of the investment banking firm of Brown Brothers Harriman. She scammed Chubb Insurance Co. in 2003, claiming $262,000 worth of jewelry she was carrying was stolen when she was mugged on Madison Avenue in New York City.

She also spent $950,000 using a no-limit "Centurion" card sent to her by American Express.

After her arrest, she blamed her predicament on traumatic events in her life including being sexually harassed at work, and witnessing "people jumping out of the Twin Towers" while on her way to work on Sept. 11, 2001.

She's one looney bitch. Clever, but looney. Anyway - Have a good time in the clinker, Princess Antoinette.

Does this mean I should stop introducing myself as a Kennedy?? Oh wait - I *am* a Kennedy...


  • Don't. Ever. Stop. It's just too good. What a conversation starter!

  • I wonder if she will bet to have the RUN AWAY BRIDE as a bunk mate?

    that would make for quite a reality tv show!

  • The one on the right with the awkward 'OhMyGod-I-can't-believe-I'm-being-photographed-with-Princess-Antoinette!' look on her face appears MUCH crazier. I gotta hand it to the Princess...I can't pull off using a fake name when being introduced to a random, uninteresting guy in a bar. I wind up coming clean by the end of the night. Apparently, the Princess is not Catholic...

    And you ARE a Kennedy, dammit!
