Soaring 2 story ceilings in entry & floating staircase. Kitchen w/ center island & lrg breakfast area. Fabulous family rm w/ fireplace, bar. Master suite w/ sitting rm, marble bath, walk-in closets & fireplace. Formal library, home office, exercise rm (or 5th bedrm). Patio, pool/spa & yard overlooks city.

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Thanks to a friendly gentleman we'll call Denny Digsitup we have learned that tee-vee show judge Greg Mathis has heaved his house in the 24-hour guard gated Mulholland Estates community on to the market with an asking price of $5,900,000.

Now listen puppies, without the aid of the interweb, Your Mama would never have known who this Greg Mathis person is because we do not watch any of those soul crushing courtroom programs where a bunch of nincompoops go on the tee-vee and stand before some mouthy judge so they can whine about how their sister's boyfriend's cuzzin's baby daddy took their Monte Carlo for a joy ride and got into a fender bender that resulted in the damn rear view mirror being ripped off and now they're suing $47 and 29¢ in damages and another $812 for pain and suffering. Pleeze.

Anyhoo, for more years than we can be bothered to find out, Mister Judge Greg Mathis has donned a flowing black robe and sat up on his legal high horse called "the bench" and doled out punishments on his eponymous boob-toob program Judge Mathis. While Your Mama can not condone these upsetting courtroom television programs that we feel make mockery of justice and reduce our legal system to the lowest common denominator of righteous anger and moral indignation, we will give Mister Judge Mathis his due props for pulling himself right up and out of the gang life in Michigan, going to law school, making millions in Hollywood and buying a big house in the Hills of Beverly.

A peep into public records shows that Mister Judge Mathis and his lovely ladee-wife Linda purchased their Clerendon Road residence in July of 2005 for $4,750,000. Prop records and listing information show the house of indeterminate architectural styling measures in at 7,755 square feet and includes 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.

Listing information declares the "dramatic" domicile features an entrance hall with "soaring ceilings" and a "floating staircase"–which does all sound pretty druh-matic, don't it? In addition to a formal living and dining rooms, there is also a "formal library." As opposed to an informal library, we guess. The kitchen has a center island and a large breakfast area and the family room features a fireplace and wet bar.

The master suite, according to listing information, includes a sitting room, fireplace, walk in closets and a marble bathroom that for some reason Your Mama pictures as having gold fixtures and a gigantic spa tub surrounded by silk flowers. A fifth bedroom appears to be used as a home gym according to listing information.

The back of the house offers several rounded and raised terraces that look out over the back yard where there are two large grassy areas separated by a swimming pool and spa complex all of which offer city views.

Records reveal that Mister and Missus Judge Mathis also own a 14 room house with six bedrooms and 4 full and 3 half bathrooms in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan which they picked up in July of 2000 for $970,000 and, as it turns out, is also currently listed for sale with an unnecessarily complicated asking price of $1,194,999. Ain't that inneresting? Hmm.

I hope he and Missus Mathis aren't broke...that would be a big shame as his rise from gang banger to TV judge is quite remarkable.

He's the executive producer for Judge Jeannine Pirro's show...so he IS employed...hopefully he and the wife are just dumping both homes and finding something they want to live in full time.

The house isn't my taste, but the backyard sounds like it is. Terraces, pool and city views all behind guarded gates. Excellent.

I am sure after he finds out that he overpaid by 4MM in LA and 500k in cleveland some realtors and appraisers, brokers are going to spend some time behind bars in the pokey

Judge Pirro is my girl! Did you know at her house in West Harrisson, she built an entire house for her pig in the backyard with running water?

That monstrocity of a house was posted on here I think, and one of the worst things I have ever seen.

Judge Pirro is the bomb isn't she?! She's been in the media universe for years now and I always enjoyed her perspective on things. Now that she has her own show, I'm addicted!

She built a house for her pig? Although I'd never have one of those animals as a pet, I love that she has that sense of whimsy. Love her.

Wow, the Queen of All TV judges (Ms. Judy) could scoop this place up for the grand kids!

Thankfully I'm employed and not at home during daylight hours watching daytime TV. I've never heard of this judge, but I can only assume some type of financial hardship would force him to sell two properties in this crappy market.

So this is what you can buy when you make a travesty of the judicial system.
All these TV judges are a disgrace.

Let Your Mama make a buck. This is the good old US of A and (s)he has a right to make a buck just like the rest of us. If Your Mama wants to present a little advertising and hope to get a clickity clack that will make Your Mama's pocketbook go jingle jangle, then so be it.

Matter of fact, I'm going to go click on one of those ads and buy a little something just to ensure Your Mama continues to stay in bidness.

"The house isn't my taste, but the backyard sounds like it is."

Better hold off on that judgment, Viva; what looks good on paper may not be just what you wanted when you get up close. That gazebo is ghastly.

Not only does it resemble some downscale catering facility from the back, but it appears to be the first house you encounter, front & center, as you pass through the pearly gates.

To some of my bitchy brothers and sisters: quit bitching about the ads.

I'd say that Mama spends at the very minimum an hour per day on this blog. Probably much more considering the flood of email (s)he likely receives with tips, comments, questions, etc.

Where I come from time equals money. What incentive would Mama have to keep up the blogging on a regular basis if not for a few ad dollars?

What's next folks, you want newspapers without ads, TV without ads and content sites without ads? Who would pay for all of that?

Here's an idea -- Mama can setup a separate blog that is password protected and without advertising. If ads make you that sick then you'll surely pay Mama a subscription fee not the see them, right?

Also, as for the Google ads, Mama only gets paid on them if you click them. I guess if you hate ads that much you can not click one no matter if it gets your attention and you really want to. Meanwhile, if you see an ad that appeals to you, go ahead and click it.

Just remember that if you click away too much from the same IP address (thinking Mama will be rewarded), it will likely only result in suspicion of Mama of click fraud. Clicking one or two or three a day though won't hurt. ;)

11:15, well said :) I guess it wouldn't be the same if at least one poop head didn't complain about something he/she comes here and enjoys for free. I encourage everyone with an iota of gratitude to make a point of clicking on Mama's featured advertiser(s) each time you come to visit, and thanks!

I don't expect too much out of this neighborhood. This house seems about par for the course.

I dig the new header, Mama. Very cool.

Gee....maybe neighbor Paris Hilton can find a buyer.....

Viva! said...

lil' gay boy,

That backyard is far from my ideal...but...I don't really mind it. Overall, however, that house is a total hideosity. It's a cookie cutter California nightmare.

So Greg Mathis is to blame 4 Jeanine Pirro being on tv? How much does he make as an Exec producer of ehr horrid show?

Jeanine is alright on the bried friday morning segments she does 4/on the nice on the "morning show mike&juliet" show but she doesnt deserve a judge show.

Jeanine & judy pls pls pls disappear!
