In Celebrity Real Estate News

Since I don’t want to soon be known as the “Princess of Doom & Gloom News”, I thought this Friday I would send all my loyal readers off for the weekend on a lighter note. I’ve decided on Celebrity Real Estate News! Admit it! You know we are all curious where they are living? What they are buying? And how much did they pay for their digs? So I did my research today and came up with a small list of transactions that occurred over this past week in the land of “Celebrity-ville”. Enjoy Everyone!

Cindy Adams celeb gossip columnist (New York Post) reported today about the Honorable Judge Judy and Judge Jerry Sheindlin’s insanely large 24,000 square foot manse in the back country of Greenwich, CT. Being that Ms. Adams is friends with the Sheindlins and has been to the house, went on to describe how Judge Judy is not living “too shabby” for a civil servant who’s TV Show went into syndication. The Builder, Mark Mariani says that the Sheindlin’s kitchen/family room is the largest in the entire state of Connecticut! Not bad for someone who sits on the bench and listens to nonsense for a living. Adams is claiming, her good friend “Your Honor” makes over $40 Million a year! What?!?! Exactly how much do judges make these days?

Britney Spears (Pop-tart Princess) has received the “A-OK” from the L.A. County Court Commissioner to put her mansion on the market. Being that Britney is a “few fries short of a Happy Meal these days” and her dad Jaime Spears is in charge of her finances, Britney and Poppa Spears had to get court permission for them to list the house. Ms. Spear’s home is located in the very posh gated community of “The Summit” it has 6 bedrooms and 6 full and one half baths. Her neighbors claim that the presence of the paparazzi outside of the community’s gates is the reason why her neighbor Ed McMahon has not received a single offer on his home. God knows he has “Real Estate Troubles” of his own! Surely he does not need the “Spears Crazy Train” to add to the mess he’s going through.

Lenny Dykstra (Baseball Outfielder) is selling his Lake Sherwood estate located behind the gates of Sherwood Country Club for $24,900,000!!! The house is said to be 12,360 square feet, has 8 bedrooms and 7.5 baths, situated on 7+/- acres. Apparently, Dykstra did not amass that entire pile of money playing outfield for the Mets & the Phillies. Mr. Dykstra became somewhat of “Stock Market Genius”, author, and motivational speaker after he retired from baseball at the age of 35. Go figure. He purchased the home from Ice Hockey great Wayne Gretzky in August 2007 for $18,500,000 and looks like the Dykstras have changed their mind and are ready to move less than a year later.

In New York City, Heather Mills (Famous for once being married to a Beetle)has just purchased a $5,000,000 West Village apartment. Thanks a lot to Sir Paul McCartney’s hefty divorce settlement! Carly Simon (Singer) also listed her West Village duplex for $3,800,000 and thinks nobody will sell it better than her sister Joanna Simon, Broker/Vice President of Fox Residential Group. Finally, Rachel Ray (Celebrity Chef) and husband John Cusimano have closed on their 6.2 acre compound in Southampton for $2,900,000.

Well that’s all I have for this Friday! Enjoy your weekend and see you back here on Monday.
