Shortly after an investment group headed by Kim Basinger purchased the town of Braselton (in her native Georgia) for $20 million, the loopy actress was asked to explain:

While stuck in traffic one day in 1989, she recalled, she had had a brainstorm. "I had on this see-thru skirt and no panties. I kept my left arm on the stick-shift a lot and suddenly it hit me. 'I want to go public with Braselton.' See, I want it to be like Dollywood

[Dolly Parton's theme park]. What do you think of the name 'Kimwood'?"

["I'm Barabra Stanwyck in The Big Valley," she declared, before selling the town four years later.]
