I always wondered what she was doing these days after she depleted Haiti of millions with her extravagant shopping. Interesting because I heard Jean-Claude is living like a pauper now, albeit deservedly so.

                

Former Haiti dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier's ex-wife, Michelle, dancing with son Nicholas (Ti Nicholas or little Nicholas) recently in Paris - July 19, 2010

Michelle Bennett (C) with her oldest two sons from her first husband, Alix Pasquet jr.. His father, Alix "Sonson" Pasquet Sr., was a Haitian army lieutenant, who in July 1958 attempted to topple the older bestial, ferocious dictator, Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier. Hours after they landed in Haiti's capital city of Port-au-Prince, after a long voyage from Florida abroad a yacht called the Molly C, the senior Pasquet and his colleagues (some of them, state of Florida sheriffs) of fortune were all captured by the older bloodthirsty dictator Duvalier's Tonton Macoutes (bogeyman). Their mutilated bodies were all subsequently put on display, not too far from the now destroyed Haiti national palace.

patti have you ever noticed that most former dictators' wives have an almost romantic/lover relationship with their sons.
 
its almost as if the sons are substituted for their fathers. iand the sons are often resentful of their fathers. im not saying that anything sexual happens, but i always find it interesting.
 
im sure her sons will take care of her and she'll continue to live teh glamorous life

Yes but I think its because they never really had romantic love for the father. It was really just to set up a comfortable life. But then they are over protective and sometimes even fawn over their sons.

It's very strange.

Haiti and the DRC are pretty much the same country.  Papa Doc and Mobutu have so much in common. It's like we share the same history and fate.

Back to Michele:

Madame Duvalier's family amassed wealth at an unprecedented rate during the later part of Jean Claude's dictatorship. By the end of his fifteen-year rule, Baby Doc and his wife had become famous for their corruption. The National Palace became the scene of opulent costume parties, where the young President once appeared dressed as a Turkish sultan to dole out ten-thousand-dollar jewels as door prizes, while the homeless were encouraged to watch the festivities on televisions that had been set up in the parks where they slept. Shocked

As part of an investigation into looting allegations, authorities raided the villa Baby Doc and his wife rented in Mougins shortly after they arrived in Europe. The authorities found Madame Duvalier trying to flush a notebook down the toilet. It logged astronomical spending -- $168,780 for clothes at Givenchy, $270,200 for jewelry at Boucheron, $9,752 for two children's horse saddles at Hermès, $68,500 for a clock, $13,000 for a week in a Paris hotel. Shocked and Angry
