The gurls at Newsday are reporting that Hippity Hop Tommy Hilfiger, a middle aged white man who made bazillions of dollars selling sorta upscale and banal sportswear to middle America, has done sold his Hamptons hideaway.
Those children who have been with Your Mama from the get-go might recall that we discussed the ocean front spread in East Hampton back when we first started our little blog in mid December of 2006. The 5 bedroom and 5.5 bathroom house–with interiors done at least partially by a tall good looking drink of water named Jason Lambeth–was being offered for sale at $24,500,000.
Your Mama discussed the property again in mid-August after Braden Keil at the NY Post blabbed that Miss Mariah Carey, known for those ear splitting whistle stops and ho-ish outfits (sorry gurl, but you know it's true), leased the house on Further Lane for the month of August through Labor Day for a reported price of $350,000. Behatcha has got more muh-nee to throw around than she knows what to do with.
Anyhoo, According to the Newsday blog, the unidentified buyer, who is definitely not Miss Carey, paid $2,000,000 more than the asking price of $24,500,000 to purchase the place fully furnished with its boatloads of Balinese and Balinese inspired furnishings done all up in a oranges, browns and cremes.
Your Mama expects Mister Hilfiger will soon find another ocean front residence to buy and refurbish with some sort of theme before the season begins next year. At least we hope so.
