    Old habits appear to die hard for 84-year-old lottery winner Gloria Mackenzie.

    According to the Daily Mail, the great-grandmother from Zephyrhills, Fla., who won $590 million on the lottery two weeks ago, is still being driven around in her son's gold Ford Focus and shopping at Wal-Mart. Instead of spending her fortune on lavish dinners, she's eating at local crab shacks and taking her leftovers home in doggie bags.
    Mackenzie, the biggest Powerball winner in U.S. history, plans to share her winnings with her son Scott, 57, who was with her when she bought the winning $2 ticket at a local supermarket. Scott lives nearby with his partner Jerry Cruz, 65.
    Before claiming her fortune, Mackenzie lived in a modest $30,000 bungalow in Zephyrhills, Fla. (She had been been forced out of the trailer park she called home for 25 years prior to that.) Mackenzie is currently staying in a hotel while construction of her new luxury home is completed in Jacksonville. She's been spotted around town with her son and Cruz.
    According to Scott's ex-wife, Ella, "The three of them are going to be living together. Scott wanted to move in with his mom because he worried about how she would cope on her own."
    The Daily Mail reports that Mackenzie and her son are currently in hiding as a result of the worldwide media attention they received following the win.

    I envision a Liberace mansion being built once mom kicks.

    Seriously, a gold Ford Escort? Poor and Gay is no way to go through life, son.

    Seriously? Good for her. Since I didn't win, it's nice to hear someone not be a complete imbecile about lottery money. I just hope the kid and his partner aren't the nefarious type and plotting an "accident" in her new "luxury" home.

    The sad part is that some asshole is gonna plot to exploit this kind natured woman and force her into a life she doesn't want to live. Lol, the poor ex wife. That's one of those "I never knew he was gay" stories being buried by the lead in here.

    "According to Scott's ex-wife, Ella, "Scott's a fag now. The three of them are going to be living together like in that show Modern Family. Scott wanted to move in with his mom because he feels he is much closer to his mom now, plus doesn't want to get to far away from all that money"

    How funny would it be if this woman, her son, and his partner buy the Palm Beach mansion right next to Howard's?

    And he knows how gullible old women are when it comes to people trying to take away his inheritance.

    Howard's not gay. He's just really interested in the details surrounding your penis. You know, the same as any normal guy.

    they say that moving back in with your mother at 57 is not a choice.

    This article begs the question... Would you take it up the hoohoo for $590 million? Evidently Scott's partner would.
