The Week End Wrap Up

Former baseball bigwig—and alleged juicer—Barry Bonds listed his big ol' house in the guard-gated Beverly Park 'hood for $25,000,000 this week. The ever-alert kids at Curbed seem to have been the first of the property gossip to lay their mitts on the interior photographs and—have mercy—it is ever an equilibrium upsetting decorative doozy. Where, children, does a person even buy furniture like that? Seriously, where?

Belgian-born martial artist and action flick actor Jean-Claude Van Damme and his fifth wife—who was also his third wife—have lived in Hong Kong the last six or seven years but must be planning to spend more time in Tinseltown since last July (2012) they dropped six million clams on a newly constructed townhouse-type mansion in Marina del Rey, CA.

The gossip hounds at InTouch Weekly say sitcom star Ashton Kutcher and his former That 70s Show cast mate turned gal pal Mila Kunis want to buy a turn-key apartment overlooking Lake Michigan in Chicago. Call Your Mama suspicious of such real estate scuttlebutt but stranger things have happened, right?

::::::::

Three time Emmy winning television and movie actor Christopher Lloyd recently unloaded a newly constructed "Umbria-inspired" residence on five ocean view acres in fancy-pants Montecito, CA for $5,100,000.

The ocean-fronting Santa Monica, CA penthouse apartment of late actor Larry Hagman (Dallas)—complete with some really horrific blue wall-to-wall carpeting in the main living room—has hit the market with an oilman's asking price of $5,200,000.

The long-legged blond at Trulia Luxe Living revealed that legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin has listed his Los Angeles condo along the upscale Wilshire Corridor with an asking price of $3.3 million. Fun fact of no import: Your Mama and The Doctor Cooter used to share a cleaning lady with Mister Aldrin.

Celebrity gossip juggernaut TMZ snitched that house hunting Sean "Diddy-Daddle-Fiddle-Faddle" Combs went for a look-see at the old Harry Cohn estate in Beverly Hills even though super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer is said to be in escrow on the nearly 20,000 square foot mansion with an approximately $23 million sale price.

Would love to see Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds do The Odd Couple on Broadway.

That second picture of Aldrin's condo must be designed for the sensation of take off into space.

Mama, if I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, you're joke about Diddy's name IS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE. It just isn't.. it's getting old and boring, just like you and this shitty blog. It used to be amazing, but now you just link to other people's blogs which basically makes you the Perez Hilton of real estate. Really, really lame.

Also, I challenge you to actually RESPOND to this criticism and not just delete it or ignore it.

I have to agree with 11:28 but Mama won't respond, she's too scared.

Quick breakdown:

Bonds: As my southern relatives would put it, "uglier than two sins and a lie".

Van Damme: He gets older, the houses get newer -- new math?

Lloyd: Senior citizen downsizing?

Hagman: I'd've died too to escape that.

Aldrin: Well lived-in; Space Shuttle meets Virgin Galactic.

Piddle Daddy: Nope -- can't picture it.

Well, Mila and Ashton were in Iowa over the Holidays and Chicago is a closer plane or car ride to Iowa so it wouldn't be that shocking if they bought a place so Ashton could have at least a part-time place closer to his family.

That should be at least have a part-time place closer to his family.

Sir Pusffster of Pee-Faddle Fiddy Daddle deserves all the ridicule and mocking he gets.

The Cohn home is my all time fav in BH. A true star home. Puff-n-Stuff is not a star.

Someone really loves kissing Fiddle Paddle's ass. I shudder to think of what horrors he would inflict on the Marciano estate.

The photos out Hagman's living room are making me seasick!

I love this blog, including the "wrap-up" posts etc that link to other sites.

11:28 and 11;34, why don't you go somewhere else? Nobody asked you to come here. Now scat.

Based on the Beverly Park sales, I bet Bonds STAGED the house to look like that. Seems thats what they like in that neck of the woods.

I hear the Arabs and Russians are already fighting over the Bonds Beverly Park estate and the Klassy furnishings!

Not sure what either mans taste level is, but sensing Bruckheimer would do a better restoration.
