I grew up poor. I had no money. My family was poor. There`s things I wanted to do and couldn`t. I was an abused wife. Just -- there`s tons of things that I couldn`t even mention. And for me to come up and to have all of this fame and fortune, it`s just -- it is a Cinderella story to me.
Nobody has ever respected me and done things for me and loved me. So when Howard [former husband J. Howard Marshall II] came along, it was a blessing. He is the only person in my life who does not care about what other people say about me. He truly loves me and I love him for it.
[To Larry King regarding her love for her second husband, J. Howard Marshall II, an octogenarian billionaire oil tycoon who died a year after they married] I wasn't physically, "Oh, my God, you hot, hot body", you know, like that. It was just -- I loved him for so much of what he did for me and my son. I mean, I just loved him -- I've never had love like that before. No one has ever loved me and done things for me and respected me and didn't care about what people said about me. I mean, he truly loved me. And I loved him for it.
