Your Mama Hears...

...From one of our spies down in Nashville that country music singing sensation LeeAnn Rimes has finally moved into her new nest located in the guard gated and medieval themed Avalon development in Franklin, Tennessee where, according to the community's website, residents and visitors will be greeted at the entrance by a "lighted replication of King Arthur's sword in the stone." Jeezis, Mary and Jehosephat please say it ain't so!

Anyhoo, details on the newly constructed and fully customized Rimes residence are slim, but we do know that the house is privately located on a small promontory where it overlooks the unfortunately named Road of the Round Table.

Property records also reveal that Miss Rimes and her fresh faced and well groomed back up dancer huzband Dean Sheremet purchased the lot back in September of 2006. It's unclear to Your Mama what amount of country music money the couple paid for the lot, but public records reveal the happy couple are carrying a fat multi-million dollar mortgage (which probably includes the cost of building the house) that will surely keep Miss Rimes touring for years to come and Mister Sheremet two-stepping or doing whatever it is he does to pay his sliver of the mountain sized mortgage.

Mister and Missus Rimes' previous crib, which sits on 3.196 acres right up on bizzy Hillsboro Pike in fancy Franklin, TN, remains unsold and on the market with an asking price of $2,395,000.

Mama, I'm almost glad you didn't have pictures -- that sword in the stone mess sounds too ugly to contemplate, much less actually see in photographic form.

Im afraid it IS so, Mama...and from the look of their website, it's even worse than that:
http://www.avalon-at-cool-springs.com/about.html

"In keeping with the Avalon theme, dozens of medieval images will appear throughout the development. A castle facade with battle turrets will camouflage a hillside water tower. Stone walls will be built throughout the open green spaces. In the center of a pond at the main entrance will be a lighted replication of King Arthur's sword in the stone. As legend portrays, King Arthur withdrew the sword from the stone to become King of Avalon."

But will serving wenches stumble around the streets with pitchers of mead? Because otherwise, the LeeAnn Rimes family is not getting their money's worth.

Egads.

how does mamma make her money from this site?

Did mamma just inherit money and now she can sit on her ass all day in front of the internet and have mini orgasms over celebrity homes??

What is the deal?

Egads, indeed.

How delightfully tacky.

LeAnn Rimes, the Guinevere of our time, last seen marching down Sir Lancelot Crescent.

Weird.

Hey anon 1.47 there's a magical thing called advertising that companies pay to have their message displayed on super popular web sites like this one. Checks are sent Mama deposits them in a bank. End of story. You want to try?

It's a development for people who want to live inside a Thomas Kinkade painting.

It's just too damn weird ––– like living in a theme park.

Truth be told, especially after the last post, the South by no means has a lock on delusions of grandeur and pomposity; just look at what's on offer now on Long Island, complete with triumphal music, pretentious fades and ponderous narration.

Oddly enough, the houses depicted do not stand there, and the one that did was demolished in '72 for taxes.
