2. She was talking about not being able to have the Hope Diamond

For years she's suffered forlorn disappointment wanting to own the 45 carat gem for her jewelry collection. Unfortunately, the Smithsonian wouldn't sell it to her at any price. People who know her have borne eyewitness to her long-time suffering over not having the famous jewel, hearing her say under her breath "I have no Hope" while dancing on her horse, sunning herself at her La Jolla villa, and being chauffeured back and forth from the jewelry store.
