It's Official!

Hang on to your britches beehawtchas...

Back in late February (2010) our trusted informant Buhneeda Beansouttathebag snitched to Your Mama that maximalist decorator ju jour Kelly Wearstler and her hotelier/property developer huzband Brad Korzen quietly slipped their palatial Beverly Hills, CA estate on to the market with an ear piercing price tag of fifty million clams. We quickly corroborated Buhneeda's gossip with another well informed tattle-tale we know named Candy Canconfirmit, then Your Mama went on and on and on about it.

Well puppies, eight months later Mister Korzen and Miz Wearstler have made it official. Although the preening pair's posh pad with its dizzying and dy-no-mite 1970s inspired day-core has yet to pop up on the Multiple Listing Service, the storied and fabled spread now appears on the website of the Westside Estate Agency with an official price tag of $46,000,000.

Listing information shows this walled and gated "Opportunity of a Lifetime," originally designed by little lauded but soo-blime architect James Dolena, spans 3.2 manicured acres with a sweeping celebrity style driveway and includes 5 family bedrooms, 2 staff rooms, and a total of 10 poopers in the main house plus a gorgeous guest house down by the cee-ment pond with another three bedrooms and, we presume, at least a couple more poopers.

For Your Mama's previous discussion/diatribe go on and get yourself a snack and a cocktail and click here.

forty-six million dollars............that is what we in the upper midwest would call California Dreamin'. Reviewing Mama's earlier photos doesn't look like the place has improved over time. Not only is it ugly, but it is dated ugly. I am going to get another Hostess Snowball and wait to see Klein Warme Knabe has to say about this one.

She's definitely a decorator and most certainly not a designer - no wonder I've never heard of her. A brief inspection of Ms. Wearstler's work finds it to be so of-the-moment that it's just that and nothing else. In fact, I don't think I've seen interiors so off-putting in my entire life. Who would live in such places; Irwin Allen or maybe someone living (almost) like Tara Reid. Anyway, former Playmates doing anything are annoying and in this case we've got pictures to prove it.

Is this the house where Miss Wearstler installed black fixtures in her son's bathroom? That right there should lower the price ten million or so.

Bad, real bad. $46M for this house? No way.

The pool looks nice. That is all.

at first glance, before my meds kicked in, I thought that pool house pic was a Palm Springs hotel!

Love this : click on the Westside web site, then on the property and then on View Map. Brings up a lovely Bing photo of what looks to be an empty sewerage pond ! Me thinks the agent's expressing an opinion of perhaps what they think the property is worth vs what the owners want for it ! HAHAHAHA !

although i do adore La Wearstler and all of her kooky outfits, i must say i am relieved that she wisely rethought the peach abstract doodles that once adorned the stairwell wall. i noticed on the westside site that their carbon beach house is still up for grabs... : /

What is a Hostess Snowball?
The Aussie

StPaulSnowman said...

Dear Aussie; A hostess snowball is a sweet treat made of non-biodegradable components which is produced in colors La Wearstler has stolen for her design palette. A central core of devilsfood cake is covered in a tectonic plate of marshmallow goo and coated with flaked coconut. They have been known to endure unchanged and edible for decades.......but not in our house!

That place is a migraine-inducing pile of crap. I wouldn't give steamy bag of dog mess for this hideous home.

Blech! Ack!

Lilithcat said...

Just goes to show - money can't buy taste. The scary part, of course, is that people think it does, and they think they can buy it from La Wearstler. Makes you wonder if her clients have ever seen her place!

Jumpin' Jejosephat in LA said...

A day later and I still see stars on the back of my eyelids when I lay my coconut down to sleep, praying the Lord my soul to Take Now To End My Suffering! Honestly, it's like someone fired up a stoogie in a Chinese bad-taste fireworks factory. Not that that could happen in reality because the Chinese people have much more respect for the production of fabulous fireworks that I much adore, but trying to explain it with a description using a bottle rocket and a can of cheese whiz just doesn't carry the same weight.
BTW, are Snowballs still pink?

StPaulSnowman said...

They come in both pink and white but mine are white. The brown, pink and white really are reminiscent of the colors seen in Mama's photos of this grotesquerie. I am really curious to know what this place will eventually sell for. It doesn't sound like any of the chillun is planning to make an offer.

Kelly Weartsler certainly does not wear well and her 15 minutes of faux Hollywood Regency rip-off are over. Last year she was evicted from her own office for doing business in and disrupting a residential neighborhood. She clearly has no sense or class. Good luck!

"They come in both pink and white but mine are white."

Must... not... make... comments...

Ouch. There, that's better. I don't know why I always assumed your snowballs were white (after all, you could be any ethnic group); perhaps a Midwest perception thing on my part?

;-)

Quick SAT question:

Kelly Weartsler is to Hollywood Regency as Pee Wee Herman is to:

a) high brow humor
b) studmuffin
c) handsome
d) hugely successful
e) none of the above

Now, take your time, kids!

StPaulSnowman said...

C works well but I have to go with A. I will avoid any discussion of my twinkie.

Has the information been removed from the WEA site? As of 10/25 evening, I don't see anything there anymore.

The house looks like something out of Clockwork Orange...

She's trying to be as colorful as Geoffrey Bradfield but unfortunately she doesn't have his refinement.

OMG! The interior is beyond hideous. Cheap, vulger and trendy. Yuk.

A hideous , hideous house. It's down the street from my home- near the Trousdale Estates gate. 3.2 acres is worth a lot. I believe the home was built on or adjacent to the old Cord Estate. Anyone confirm this? But wow... this woman does this for a living?
