Back in mid-March of 2009 Your Mama discussed the Holmby Hills estate that Hugh Hefner and his sorta-wife/baby momma Kimberly put on the market with a spine tingling real estate bubble asking price of $27,995,000.
The children will recall that the 7 bedroom and 5 pooper manse measures 7,318 square feet and for better or worse sits right up next door to the (in)famous Playboy Mansion where the still frisky thanks to modern medicine octogenarian soft-porn purveyor lives with three gurlfriends–including a set of teenage twins–young enough to be his great-grandchildren. The house in question was occupied by Missus Hefner and the two butter beans she had with her philandering huzband Hef.
Next we heard about the property was just a few days ago when Mister Big Time revealed that the property was in escrow. Well chickens, thanks to our good friend Babbling Babette we've learned that the property has indeed been sold. We haven't been able to suss out the identity of the buyer but we can tell you that the estate sold for, are you ready? Drum roll please...Eighteen million clams. That's right puppies some buyer had the nerve to offer $18,000,000 and Mister and Missus Hefner had the brains to take the money and run, run, run.
Now that this deed is done, Your Mama waits on pins and needles to see if ol' Hef up and sells his other house on S. Mapleton Drive, not the Playboy Mansion which is actually on Charing Cross Road, but the one up the road a bit from the wifey's old house where we hear he puts up all the wanna be nekked boobie-models that flock to the Playboy Mansion like moths to a flame.
