course I read it, as kids we used to love watching The Persuaders with Moore and Tony Curtis and they got on really well but TC was a real tightwad!

I watched that! Interesting, but I had to grin at the female air crew's uniforms!! Wonder if Kate Middleton's mother dressed like that?!! LOOOOL.

Aww, Tony Curtis. He wasn't so good in real life though. Six children and six wives, and by his own admittance, he wasn't a good father, as verified by Jamie Lee. It's said he left a fortune of approximately £37 million - and not a penny to his kids! Tight-wad indeed.

What do you mean I freaked you out???

No, it was unkind and unthoughtful towards his children.

Maybe they all are, but when your father had wealth like that, which would've been worth more than it is today, you would've expected them to've benefited a LITTLE.

Mind you, Paul McCartney swears he's going to do the same - that his children won't inherit his millions, because he wants them to make their own way in life, as a lesson learnt. Fair enough. They won't starve, because just having the name gives them an advantage, and they'll probably get something in the way of properties and music rights. I don't know, but in his situation, I couldn't leave MY kids with nothing.

Disagree. If you can't spoil your kids, then who CAN you spoil? If they're brought up to appreciate what they get, they'll take care of whatever they inherit.
