HOT MOMMA: Forbes.com's recent feature on the "hottest billionaire heiresses" includes familiar faces such as Paris Hilton and Amanda Hearst, but the curveball came with 46-year-old mother of two, Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Is the former "Seinfeld" star really a future billionaire? As it turns out, probably not.
Forbes.com had reported that the father of Louis-Dreyfus, Gerard, has a $3.4 billion fortune from commodities including oil, gas and orange juice. A spokeswoman for the Web site confirmed that, shortly after the list was posted, "Forbes received a call to dispute the notion that her father was in direct control of the entire fortune, estimated at $3.4 billion net worth, and provided evidence that it was actually split among several family members." The error could be somewhat forgiven because Gerard Louis-Dreyfus has appeared on Forbes' billionaires list for more than a decade, without a single call to dispute the information until now. Despite the family politics that apparently came into play recently, the Forbes spokeswoman added that "he most likely will not appear on the Forbes billionaires list moving forward." A spokeswoman for Julia Louis-Dreyfus insisted the forbes.com listing was incorrect and asked WWD to "please stop perpetuating the lie." No word on whether that included the "hot" distinction. — Amy Wicks
