Remember Swan Brooner, the gorgeous little JonBenet lookalike who was featured in that much-talked-about "Living Dolls" TV special a few years back?
Many of us stood back and looked kind of aghast at her life in child beauty pageants, but Swan's life appears to have only gotten sadder since those days. Her mother, Robin, who was a major presence in "Living Dolls," died of a heart attack in 2003, when Swan was just 9. So Swan went to live with her father in Alaska, and if that wasn't enough of a change, he, too, died of cancer, leaving her an orphan. According to Wikipedia, she now lives with a sister.
No crowns can make up for those kind of losses.
