RENTER: Mariah Carey
LOCATION: Further Lane, East Hampton, NY
SIZE: 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Your Mama never got on the Mariah Carey fan train. It's not that she's often dressed like a tranny hooker, because we're down with that. It's the singing. Yes, the lady can sing. And, maybe, just maybe she's even a great singer. But alas, Your Mama is not a fan of the music she chooses to sing or the way she chooses to sing it. Our ears are simply not built to accommodate the incessant warbling up and down the scales and dragging out words into 47 different notes. And do not even get Your Mama started on those hair raising whistle stops. Oh lahwd hunnies, we hear those ear piercing screams on the car radio and we have to pull over so that we can catch our damn breath and take a nerve pill.
Anyhoo, today we learned from the NY Post's celebrity real estate gossip Braden Keil that the exceedingly successful singer with a fat bank account and a penchant for itty bitty bikinis is reportedly spending $350,000 to rent Tommy Hilfiger's ocean front estate in the Hamptons. For the month of August through Labor Day. You got to have some serious cash up your booty to be forking over that amount of dough for a one month rental. Mister Keil reports that Mister Hilfiger will be spending the month down in the Caribbean. Poor thing.
The 5 bedroom 5.5 bathroom house, which has been decorated with a distinct Balinese flair that so many of the rich and famous seem to like, is located on super swank Further Lane in East Hampton, just a few doors down from Jerry Seinfeld.
Your Mama discussed the Hamptons House of Hilfiger back in December of 2006 after he dropped in on the market for $24,500,000. Maybe Miss Mariah will like that place enough to plunk down a huge wad of cash to purchase the property at the end of her stay. Stranger things have happened.
