Did Britney Spears Do It Again?

WHO: Britney Spears
LOCATION: Tennyson Place, Hermosa Beach, CA
PRICE: $8,585,000 (list)
SIZE: 5,785 square feet, 4-5 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: Situation on almost half an acre, at the end of the private cul-de-sac, on a bluff overlooking the Pacific, is the beach cities' premier estate property. The property features panoramic ocean views from every level with exceptional privacy and security and is only a short walk from sands of Manhattna and Hermosa. At approximately 5,900 s.f., the main residence includes 4 bedrooms (could be a 5th), 4 baths, 2 half baths, a world class media room, a vintage Irish pub, and incomparable courtyards and view terraces.

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: While that poor Britney Spears gurl remains on lock down in a Los Angeles psych ward on a 72 hour 5150 hold, several tabs and glossies including the National Equirer (no link that we could locate) are reporting that the dissembling pop star has gone and bought herself a new damn house in the unlikely location of Hermosa Beach. While Hermosa Beach is no stranger to celebrity residents, the locals are unlikely to embrace Miz Spears particular brand of celebrity that comes with a battalion of SUV driving and telephoto lens wielding paps who camp outside her houses and follow her around causing all sorts of traffic tie ups.

All the reports gleefully point to a Hill Section house on Tennyson Place that the queen of the bad weave looked at back in October of 2007 (pictured above, more pictures through link). This was before the loony lamb hooked up with that beady eyed Adnan Ghalib dude and started speaking with a faux and not very good British accent. The property in question includes a main house with 4-5 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half bathroom and a vintage Irish pub. A vintage Irish pub? What the hell does someone need with a vintage Irish pub? Anyhoo, according to listing information the property includes a large sports pool, spa, lush gardens, and a detached guesthouse that rides atop the three car garage.

Here's the thing puppies. Despite the wide reporting that Miz Spears drove a hard bargain and paid around $6,000,000 for the property (which you'll recall from above was priced much higher), Your Mama can not yet verify the a sale. We have searched our databases and contacted several well placed sources who we thought might be in the know about Miz Spears buying a house she doesn't really need and have come up completely empty handed. Perhaps the National Enquirer simply has better sources that Your Mama.

More to come as the whole story surfaces.

Maybe she is buying this one for Fed-X to raise the kids?

She needs to stay behind locked gates.

To keep her in and the paps out.

Hopefully this latest turn of events will give the doctors a chance to pump enough drugs in her to get her back on an even keel.

I don't usually presume to comment on the personal lives of people I don't know. But all this compulsive errand-running with the paparazzi in tow...the wacky stunts...she's clearly an emotionally immature woman who thrives on attention, any attention...and while it's very likely that she's simply having a very public breakdown, I'm also cynical enough to suspect she's also playing everyone for a fool in certain regards.

Nail on the head, PCH.

And just what would she need an "authentic Irish pub" (perhaps she has her fake accents mixed up?) for?

Where else can she stagger around, curse, trip over the kiddies and vomit her guts out in the style she's accustomed to in the privacy of her own home?

Alessandra said...

Oh my. I just don't think Hermosa Beach is a good fit for Ms. Spears. Nice enough spread, I suppose, though perhaps she doesn't need a vintage Irish pub. On the one hand, it keeps her and her coochie galore away from the Sunset Strip. On the other hand, would you want to sit on those barstools?

PCH gives us the kind version... but to be just a little bit more blunt: The girl is a fucking idiot! If she indeed purchased this house, then we are witnessing "compulsive spending" in its finest hour. What will she do without her midnight joyrides down Ventura Blvd?

Mama,
Might the purchase be under her new BFF-handler Sammie's name?

I happened to be unlucky enough to get caught in the traffic swirl surrounding Ms. Spears when she left her car with a flat tire in the middle of Sunset Boulevard. It was a clusterf*#@.

Paparazzi on foot is bad enough. Paparazzi and their cameras hanging out of their SUV's and their Prius doing illegal u-turns (from the far right lane to the opposite side of traffic...not kidding) on Sunset is another. It was some scary ass shit.

I am so very glad I moved out of Hermosa Beach. It's going to be a bloody nightmare, if this purchase is true.

I was there said...

What she really likes is vodka and pain pills.Valley of the dolls 2008.

The best thing for Britney to do is sell The Summit, get rid of the Malibu rental & move back home & get her head together ... I agree about the attention thing, she clearly has mental health problems & clearly has absolutely nobody other than the paparazzi & typical L.A snakes that surround her ... I think she's crazy, I think she can blame herself for a lot of it, I think she's a brilliant media manipulator, BUT, there is a little part of me that feels sorry for her ... not the 1st person Hollywood has ruined & certainly wont be the last ...

Is it at all possible for The Summit homeowners association to make her leave? Looking at TMZ etc.. the residents up there must be pulling their hair out - it's just chaos ... 100 paparazzi up there in the early hours of Thurs morning, not to mention the police, a fire truck & I believe there was a news or LAPD helicopter ... & everyday Mulholland is blocked with parked paparazzi ... not much peace & quiet in the hills of Beverly when Britneys about!

So_Chic_Darling,

You're skipping (for those of us who remember LPs.)

lucy said...

She does like different places to sleep in, doesn't she?

Having said that, it's a ho-hum house for that money. As always, location, location, location.

I feel sorry for her, as you don't bring mental illness upon yourself.

blbeny said...

Good for her. Now she has a spanish house and a white convertible for each of her personalities.

I can't bring myself to judge Britney because I suspect that her problems may be post partum in nature. A substantial number of women experience depression and emotional disturbance after giving birth, a few to an extreme and alarming degree, and that change in her life appears to have triggered the downward spiral. This type of thing is serious, and counter to what Mr. Tom Cruise would have you think, very real. I sincerely hope that stripped of her insulating inner circle, she gets properly diagnosed and introduced to an astute and caring therapist.

Whether it's all an elaborate publicity stunt, post-partum depression or bipolar disorder, whatever it is I hope, for the sake of her children, she receives proper medical care.

She may be nuts, but she's OUR nut and we wish her the best.

bentley said...

To quote my good friend Lainey, the girl is "chicken fried stupid."

She was also used, abused and thrust into the spotlight by idiot parents. How is anyone expected to survive the juggernaut of celebrity without parental direction and support??

Too much, too fast, and she's paying the price. She'll find God or a gun, now that she seems to have belly-flopped into the nadir of the situation.

What a gong show.

She has great taste in cars, terrible taste in homes. Jay-sus!

It's Prius, the hybrid Toyota; Staging Lady in a Pink Toyota drives one.

LGB (hey, love your posts): Just wondered aloud what we'd call more than one.

lil' gay boy said...

Anon 10:04 - Good question; Priusi? Priucondria? A murder of Prius?

Or how about a parking lot full of supposedly environmentally sensitive shitboxes?
