LeAnn Rimes Finally Sells 23-room White Elephant

SELLER: LeAnn Rimes (and Dean Sheremet)
LOCATION: Franklin, TN
PRICE: $4,100,000 (sale); $7,450,000 (original list)
SIZE: 13,310 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 3 half bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Oh, what a tangled web of romance and real estate has cross-over country music queen LeAnn Rimes woven over the last few years.

In 2002, at the dewy age of 19, the Grammy, CMA, BMA, AMA, and ACM award winning former Star Seach champion married one of her slim-hipped back-up dancers—that would be Dean Sheremet—and barely-out-of-their-teens newlyweds soon set up house like grown ups in a 7,000-plus square foot mansion on a fast-moving country road in Nashville, TN. Property records show she/they purchased the three-acre estate in April 2003 for $1,700,000 and sold the 5 bedroom and 5.5 bathroom mansion in October 2008 for $2,125,000 to professional wrestling promoter Dixie Carter-Salinas and her hubby Serge.

So goes the celebrity real estate scuttlebutt, Mister and Missus Sheremet-Rimes had moved to an even bigger, 23-room mansion they custom-built on a rounded hilltop in a gated enclave of an upscale but unfortunately Medieval-themed gated community in the semi-rural and star-studded Nashville suburb of Franklin (TN). It's not clear what the couple paid for the property but public records we peeped reveal they took out a construction loan of more than four million dollars to build their own version of Barbie's Dream House.

Alas and alack, wasn't long after the Sheremet-Rimes settled in to their newly-finished, brick-built behemoth sometime in 2008 that Miz Rimes began an extra-marital affair with beau-hunky tee-vee actor Eddie Cibrian, then also married and making babies with long-legged and potty-mouthed former fashion model Brandi (with an "i") Glanville who reality tee-vee watchers know from her high-drama stint on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

By May 2009 Miz Rimes and her cuckolded husband had flipped their recently-completed mansion on 5.22 hilltop acres in Franklin, TN on the market with an asking price of $7,450,000. Listing information from then indicated the beefy, three-story residence measures 13,380 square feet and includes 4 bedrooms and 6 full and 3 half bathrooms while more recent listings available online show it has 13,310 square feet and contains 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. Make of those numerical discrepancies what you will.

Although they'd gone their separate ways a year or more before, Miz Rimes and Mister Sheremet—weren't officially divorced until the summer of 2010. It took a couple more years before they managed to unload their former marital home in Franklin at a steep discount; Online sale records we perused show the gated estate with two ktichens, 360 degree views, salt water swimming pool, yoga studio, and smart-house technology sold in mid-March of this year (2012) for $4,100,000, a fortune by any standard, but nearly 3.5 million less than Miz Rimes and Mister Sheremet originally wanted.

Prior to hooking up with Miz Rimes, Mister Cibrian and ex-wife Brandi—with and "i"—Glanville owned an architecturally specious mansion in Encino, CA they sold in late 2007 for $4,300,000 to comedian Carlos Mencia. The erstwhile couple and their kids decamped to 6 bedroom and 6.5 bathroom residence in the gated Mountain View Estates community in Calabasas, CA they bought in January 2008 for $2,500,000 and sold at a loss in May 2010 for $2,200,000.

After kicking Mister Sheremet to the romantic curb Miz Rimes, we heard through the celebrity real estate gossip grapevine, made house a leased mansion in the equestrian-minded and guard-gated Hidden Hills (CA) community.

We're not exactly sure where Mister Cibrian and Miz Rimes, who married last year, currently reside although we've heard (but can not confirm) they're still hunkered down in in a big house in the hot as Hades western suburbs of Los Angeles in or around Calabasas. Last year the greying and hunky Mister Cibrian appeared on The Playboy Club, canceled shortly after its premiere. The short-lived show taped in Chicago where the couple acquired—or maybe leased, we're not quite sure—a condominium they had worked over with Tibetan antiques and contemporary art by interior designer Jonathan Pierce, a process taped for the HGTV program Interiors, Inc.

Of what, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill doing it on a tractor? It's Tennessee for God's sake, what are you going to look at? And that's a pity because you sure wouldn't want to look at the damned house. This place would be a nice generic fit in any subdivision where people regard a black diesel truck as their "formal vehicle".

Not complaining, Mama, I enjoy your stories no matter where they might originate.

Skank discount included a blowjob for the Mr. for LeAnn Rimes and a romp with Eddie "The Douchebag" Cibrian for the Mrs. buyers!

Say what you want about LeAnn, but she does have a rocking body..and that says alot because Im Gay!

Doug said...

@11:06 Be careful with talk like that because one of our posters will inform you that you can't be gay and think LeAnn has a "rocking body". :)

The only way to decorate this monstrosity is with explosives or a bulldozer. The kitchen in particular is an oversized mess.

I love this house. But i do love over the top houses and i know this wouldnt be everyones taste. I absolutely hate leann though, i cant even stand looking at pictures of her haha : )

Ha, ha, the "mansion" in Hidden Hills is FAR from a mansion.
It's nothing special what so ever.
I guess she is still a country girl at heart !

Petra's Weave Tightener said...

LeAnn seems to have something that attracts the gay men in droves. Just take her first husband for example. ;)

Oh, and this house is a hideous hot mess.

Snoopi said...

She is still in the leased Hidden Hills property (unless she has moved since Halloween 2011), of which she dumbly posted her address to if you read her inane Twitter account. Eagle eyed readers saw it, the vast majority did not. As a previous poster mentioned, it is NOT a mansion by any means but DOES have a dual horse stall in the back yard. Neigh. This is true btw.

She also has a rental in Malibu, in the area of 800-1100 sq ft beachfront condo (not sure which unit it is), in a 6 unit complex. The paps know where it is so there are plenty of photo ops she has staged at said property.

Hey, Y'all. Don't blame that mess on "country.". We have way better taste than that, and we can't stand her either. She's just desperate trash.

Doug @ 10:37 AM shows once again that his taste is all in his mouth, and he has obviously never been to Tennessee.

This over priced pile is no mansion and Miz Rimes has given respectable Trailer Trash a bad name.

Money-loving him and attention loving her. What an absolutely perfect pair. Eddie Cibrian has had one foot in the poor house for years. He can manage to land a part or two, but they never last. He would not have looked at Ms. Rimes twice had she not had some money. I think it's comical how she plances around in a bikini trying to get attention and trying to keep him, too. However, she won't money or no money.

Poor Doug, you really need to get out and about more. Have you even been to TN? I thought so.

Well, I see Miss Trailer Trash herself has now made Mama's blog today. This woman likes attention more than Kim K, and that is saying a whole lot. Poor thing. Without her money she would have a hard time finding any man who would pay attention to her for more than five minutes, and this definitely includes her current husband, too.

I wonder if Leann's pathetic haters give Angelina Jolie a free pass, when Angelina has cheated multiple times? Leann haters are just obsessed creatures. :(

Candy Spelling said...

Honestly, no one in their right mind would ever live in Tennessee by choice. It just doesn't compute. Y'all may like it because you've grown up there, and that's fine, but don't blame us for making fun of Hickville and this trailer trash that comes with it! And that's the honest truth. xoxoxo

As a Franklin resident, it is "music" to my ears when white trash talks trash about TN. It decreases the likelihood they will ever visit.

Nice house on a nice property. Nothing wrong with Tennessee.

I dunno if someone from Tennessee should be calling others white trash. Just sayin'...

The house is ok I don't know what possesses people to build such huge places when they're just a couple.

No offense but it just seems so juvenile to bicker about whose state is better.

Nathan said...

I personally love it. I would completely redecorate the interior, but I love the exterior of the house.

Jo Property said...

Like a pervious poster said, why such a big Ouse for 2 people I'm sure she hadn't got that many friends that she needs to entertain..lol.

Gorgeous house in a beautiful place to live. Franklin is a charming warm place to live. Great combination of city and country, the best of both worlds.
