A Few Links to Keep Y'all Busy

Family matters, a funeral puppies, require Your Mama be away today. Sorry darlins.

1. Art gallerist Larry Gagosian just paid hedge hog J. Christopher Flowers $36,500,000 for the famous and famously large and expensive Harkness Mansion on the Upper East Side. Sound like a lot? It is, but it's almost $15,000,000 than brassy Mister Flowers paid for the huge house in 2006 and every inch of the interiors is still to be done.

2. Actor John Larroquette lists an ugly little in Mellenthin-style ranch house in Sherman Oaks, CA

3. Ruth Madoff, wife of convicted Ponzi putz Bernie Madoff, who used to own a penthouse in Manhattan, an ocean front home in Montauk (NY) and a water front home in Palm Beach (FL) has been found living in a modest condo in Boca Raton, FL. And she drives a Honda Civic that probably cost as much as she used to pay to have her hair dyed.

Mamma, condolences to you at your funeral.

Dayum Harkness Mansion is going to be a flurry with gay decorators making it fit for a King!

Dayum x 1000 this shack in Sherman Oaks... I am now ill and in need of Gins/Tonics to erase the images

I feel sorry for Ruth.... She can still snag herself a very financially stable man in Boca and be back in the lap of luxury in no time

Sending warmest thoughts to Mama! John Larroquette's home appears to belong to a relative and her husband who have only owned it since 2005. It was purchased at that time for 707K - they are taking a big ol' hit on this one!
