A Little Cup of Fun

One of Your Mama's little buddies, a fine gentleman in lower Manhattan whom we'll call Mister Glass, sent us a link this morning to a genius post on the insanely sassy and New York centric blog Gawker. The high-larious post about high brow real estate brokerage Brown Harris Stevens (with luxe outposts in New York, the Hamptons, and Palm Beach, natch), reveals how the brokerage employs a coterie of well bred and well married agents to pull in the big bizness of the rich and filthy rich in some of the swankiest zip codes on the east coast. Here's a sample of one agent's bio:

Arabella Green Buckworth: "Arabella loves travel, literature, languages, art, classical music, and chess. She is married to an Australian philanthropist, and is step-mother to four handsome English gentlemen."

That's really her bio children. Really! Chess! That's just gorgeous.

Have fun.

if they were that rich & well-bred they wouldn't be slogging their asses selling real estate ...

if your husband is a 'philanthropist' you don't need to work! wives of philanthropists are on charity commitees or having lunch with their girlfriends at nello! not showing ppl around apartments on the upper west side.

I heart Gawker. How about a reality show with this bunch,Mama? Someone get Bravo on the telephone with a pitch.

Prince Charles is a keen gardener & has an interest in organic foods / produce so it's more out of interest.

His food business [Duchy Originals] has like 200 products but ALL PROFITS go to his CHARITY - so technically this could be classed as charity work.

The foods amazing.

"charles is not a billionaire"

Technically his family is ... the Royal Art Collection is worth $20 Billion alone but as it's the property of the reigning monarch then it can't be counted as the Queens personal wealth in rich lists b/c obviously it will be Charles' then Williams & so on.

The Queens personal stamp collection is worth $200M alone which is just insane!

Then the Sovereign also owns the Crown Estate which is worth $14 Billion - she just doesn't get the $2 Billion annual profits or has the right to sell it. All profits now go to the exchequer.

The royals are nothing more than glorified wellfare cases. It kills me that they complain about the press, when thier sole job is to be a public figure head.

My favorite is the picture of little harry dressed like a nazi (the very people who bombed the shit out of his country). smooth harry real fuck'n smooth. If I could sum up the royals with one word.... "LOOSERS". oh and that includes that tramp Diana.

I ache for their pretension. Am I naïve, or are these pompous missives actually landing contacts? Targeted demographics to this housing market are, in my belief, humble and/or sensitive to their fortunate positions. Can’t rationalize who would buy into such arrogant and shallow team profiles.

Back to crocheting for The Mama.

I believe Mama said "A Little Cup of Fun" not a bucket full of class hatred.

DUMBASS! The British Royal Family are technically German. The name Windsor has only been in use since 1917 - after WWI they had to change it from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha or in german Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha to Windsor. I suggest instead of criticising peoples costume choices you go & take a history class, would obviously be of more use to you then on internet blogs you don't end up sounding dumb as fuck.

the royals are billionaires many times over, they under report their wealth.
