It could be Sandy Hill Pittman. She's a socialite who went on the famous Mt. Everest climb in the mid-1990s that ended in the deaths of several people. The book "Into Thin Air" about the Everest disaster portrayed her as a spoiled dilettante (she had Sherpas carrying her espresso machine up the mountain) whose unreadiness for the climb contributed to the tragedy when her group was caught in a blizzard. She subsequently remarried a tycoon named Tom Dittmer. I found a story from Page Six a couple of years back that their marriage was in trouble.
