Sandra West was prominent in Beverly Hills and socialized with the rich and famous, and in one report, she is compared to today’s Paris Hilton. She was worth $5 million, which was inherited from her husband after he died in 1968.
Her parents owned and operated a children’s clothing store where Sandra often watched the wealthy and famous come and go. Growing up she realized that her dream was to become just like them- wealthy and famous! As she grew older, her looks attracted many men including Frank Sinatara and even Elvis Presley. She eventually started to date an heir to a wealthy oil family from Texas named Sol West.
