1. Dina Merrill
Net Worth: $5.1 Billion
Best Known For: The Player, Operation Petticoat, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, Caddyshack II
Interesting Personal Facts: Merrill is by far the wealthiest person on this list. However, most of her $5.1 billion fortune came through inheritance. She is the only child of Post Cereals heiress Marjorie Meriweather Post and the Wall Street stockbroker Edward Francis (EF) Hutton. And if that wasn’t enough, she married Stanley M. Rumbough, Jr. who was an heir to the Colgate Palmolive fortune. She is a presidential appointee to the Board of Trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a trustee of the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, and a vice president of the New York City Mission Society. She currently suffers from Lewy Body Dementia and is no longer able to speak or understand language.
