LeAnn Rimes Snatches Up a Suburban Short Sale

BUYER: LeAnn Rimes
LOCATION: Hidden Hills, CA
PRICE: $3,000,000
SIZE: 8,642 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Last December recently rehabbed country music queen—and Twittering trouble maker—LeAnn Rimes tweeted about how happy she was to finally close on her new house in the guard-gated, celebrity-stocked and semi-rural suburban enclave of Hidden Hills, CA.

It took awhile for details to surface about which house exactly she and her second husband Eddie Cibrian—the philandering ex-husband of foul mouthed and sometimes volatile Brandi Glanville of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills—settled on but according to several sources the couple successfully purchased a privately situated short sale property.*

Property records show the two acre estate was sold in late December for an even-steven $3,000,000 and listing details we dug up on the internets shows the sprawling, two-story sorta-Spanish style McMansion was built in 2005, measures in at 8,642 square feet and contains six bedroom suites and nine bathrooms.

An extra-wide driveway at the front curls up to a compact motor court and four car attached garage that extends finger-like off the front of the stone-, stucco- and wood-faced residence. Tree shaded lawns surround the house that opens up to backyard entertainment areas that include several covered porches, a dark bottom swimming pool with inset spa, a poolside dining pavilion with built-in barbecue station and, set well away from the house, a separate guest house nestled into a steep slope.

As it turns out, the new residence of Mister and Missus Cibrian-Rimes is just a few doors down and around the corner from the house the couple leased the last few years. That house, a considerably smaller—and in our humble and utterly meaningless opinion, architecturally pedestrian—5,100 square foot mini-mansion on one acre with five bedrooms, six bathrooms and a two-stall stable has popped up for sale on the open market with an asking price of $2,595,000.

*Records Your Mama peeped show the seller—a merchant services company executive and his philanthropically inclined and athletic wife—purchased the property in late December 2006 for $5,575,000, which means someone—the seller? the lender?—lost almost 2.6 million buck on this deal.

Oooh so this is the 'fancy new mansion' Brandi was talking about.
Gross.

As cold and uninviting as its new owner

The house and its new mistress both need some major work!

Eddie can't wait to get this in the divorce settlement.

She really has been embarrassing herself for the last few years. But it's totally fun to watch.

Let's just say "ho-hum" would be high praise indeed for this abode; Mama's generous description "Tree shaded lawns surround the house..." made me snarf my grapefruit Mash -- an aerial view shows a niggardly strip of green extending no further than 25 feet or so from the house; the rest appears to be sere dirt.

Eight years later & still haven't finished the landscaping? That kinda explains the short sale...

Gotta say I love me some Brandi; legs that go on forever, better looking than what's-her-name, and she cleans up good, too (did you see her in that photo shoot for Lisa?)

If Eddie had more brains than balls he'd be kicking himself around the block -- settling for an ersatz proxy when he already had the real deal.

She was on Howard Stern talking about some juicy stuff. Totally candid, it was really nice to hear someone just lay out the truth like that.

It is a pretty big lot, but I don't know what they could do to ever make this house appealing.

Old listing photos show icky interiors.

While tacky as hell-- seems like a decent price for the size and everything. Previous owners paid almost $6m for the dump.

I thougth she had decent taste from her house in TN... Gauranteed she did a substantial amount of renvoations.

She needs to always wear her hair big.
On Howard Stern she said she made 18k to be a half-housewife last year, and now she's the lowest paid full time BHHousewife bringing in 136k a season.
She was totally honest. Said she's doing all this bc her z list husband cheated on her and since she was depending on him, she took the fame from his affair and is now riding that wave all the way to the bank.
Good on her I say! She also said Leann is eddies sugar mama, andthat his dream was always to live in a big house in a gated community. There are way better houses in hidden hills but hey, a Cuban playboys gotta do what he's gotta do.
He will get this house when he divorces Leann, which will be soon enough cuz did y'all hear about her teeth? Can only imagine how bad she is at fellatio

I'm sure Brandi would take Eddie back, if this house come with him.

She is a sad woman.

Hell no she won't! Shes still just a baby, barely through her first season. She gon do A LOT more before shed ever settle down. Homegirls gonna make dat money for her own damn self and kids, not some aging lifetime star.
Maybe she'll get a settlement with Maloof and move to BH proper

Well, now Leann has a guest house to put her "step-guests",oops,I mean step-sons in when they visit. That way she can still keep working on getting the "real" orgasms she had never experienced before in her young life. (I think that's why she's so "hung" up on her no life cheating husband she's so afraid of losing!) Eddie Murphy said it all in his debut "Raw"! Watch it! It's great ... and true!

For every orgasm she has, Eddie gets one hour of unsupervised playtime.

Pictures on UsMagazines website. Totally ugly inside.

Hate Leann, don't mind her decorating in her other houses. She sold the TN house for about $4mil right? And bought this for 3, so she should have a few bucks to spend on some shiny new things to keep Eddie interested for a lil while longer.

Cibrian is such a fool! He went after the wrong former pop star!
Shoulda went after the much more well liked, and well off (and well fed) Jessica Simpson. Could be truly living like a pimp, but instead he and leann continue to try and try and pretend and try to be on that level, while Simpson does it barefoot and ready to poop.

Anonymous said...

And,just where do you think his earned "unsupervised" playtime will be? At the guest house with his growing boys? Or, maybe at a cozy restaurant somewhere around Malibu with another sweet young piece that's looking to get boned by a hot actor? Oops, I forgot, he'd probably have to get an allowance to afford a hide away hotel room and gas for his bike! (As much as he loves a little "strange", I'm sure he'll figure out some kind of good story to get some time away from his wife.)

Brandi is a single mom who needs to live frugally. She shouldn't try to ball out like those other toads on that stupid show.

That being said, LeAnn and Brandi are interchangeable when it comes to the level of woman. One is no better than the other.

Anonymous said...

I think it is funny and very telling how people react to Leann. Since everyone is clearly so perfect and never done anything at all questionable. I'm not so sure they would still be ready to burn her at the stake, if their own human stumbles were writ large across the media. Many I would suspect at the very least would shut their mouths entirely or suddenly have a dawning of at least attempted understanding.

Of course Leann has made it harder on herself by trying to control peoples opinions and revealing too much of her vulnerability. Like most mindless packs looking for an easy target, they smell blood and attack. With a gleeful viciousness. Which really only reflects on them. Even if the majority of the pack of hyenas in the peanut gallery are salivating in agreement with a bitchy comment. It makes none of you anymore virtuous in your deflection and redirection of your own failures at an admittedly easy target.

Further Brandi is clearly not an innocent shrinking violet. She has as much as admitted it herself. I don't dislike her, but I see nothing to admire in her behavior or relentless death grip on a story and theme of a million different lives throughout time. Shit happens, welcome to life. Hearts break and dreams turnout to be lies. The point of such trials is to learn and grow. Not wallow in the mud. Leann has kicked herself in the face repeatedly as well with all of this, and would do well to just freaking let it go. Live your life honey and live it well. You too Brandi. Sadly for both of you Eddie by all evidence seems to be a natural born user and manwhore. He has his own issues to deal with and will pay the piper eventually, we all do.

Now perhaps Eddie has changed his stripes and will be a perfect husband. It's not likely, but possible. What he seems to need is an open relationship, where the novelty and danger of getting some strange no longer has the damaged mental payoff. Once the dick stops leading him around, because the point is lost. He could have a dawning of realization about what really matters and build a true bond with his partner. Granted nothing about his behavior indicates he would seek such a thing. Because he is too arrogant and wants the wife and pussy all to himself and just for him. But still be able to slip away and charm some stupid young pretty thing into sucking his dick. Then return to his wife with "unexpected" flowers or the like. To his ilk, what is good for the goose is NOT good for the gander. He has a long way to go, unless some serious self work is going on behind the scenes, before he can be a truly good husband to anyone.

It is seriously ridiculous the way people keep calling Leann a home wrecker and husband stealer, etc. Unless I missed the story she did not bust into Brandi's house and tie her up, set the place on fire and drag an unwilling Eddie taped up and gagged to her man stealing lair. She was a very young, super talented mega star. Damaged by parents and the industry in general. Eddie went where he wanted to. Eddie made these decisions. Pretty sure Leann did not rape him, as he screamed in protest that he was a married father. Then only when her magical and evil pooter sullied his family man whacker was he led astray. Come on people, grow the f--- up. He is the only one to really blame here. Yes, Leann has a role and even Brandi. But anyone who has actually been in relationships and interacted with other human beings knows damn well, life is not a hallmark movie or even remotely likely to attain moral perfection. We have ideals and we should strive for them, fact is most of us will never ever, ever, be all that we wish and as morally correct as we are taught we should be. Because real life is messy and once again, shit happens. It just does. Good luck with your own perfect lives folks. I strongly suspect many of you will need it.

I wrote the missive calling b to the big ol pile of steaming S. Regarding many of these comments. As preemptive strike on your likely tired responses...

None of you need bother about comments about this being a real estate blog, etc. No fuck chuck. I noticed. I also noticed almost everyone who did vaguely touch on this house almost without fail laced it with moral judgment about Leann, etc. It's stupid.

I think the house is,, umm curious in design. But not entirely offensive. At least it is not the exact same moc-med with just beige stucco and red tile roof crap that is 80% of these sort of homes. It at least makes an attempt at a different take, if not entirely successful. It certainly has some very nice features and things going for it. And it seems like a great buy for the price and what she got. That leased house though,, yikes. good riddance.

lil' gay boy said...

Well, well, well...Mama, get the wooden spoon!

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black; seems like Anon 10:17/19 is passing their own moral judgments about a handful of unknowns, whose only "crime" is voicing an opinion about people they know, albeit not personally, through the media.

At least they (and to a lesser extent, I) have the courage of their convictions; rather than carpet bomb a bunch of strangers & then return like a coward with a "disclaimer", perhaps you should have stuck to your one paragraph about the house itself; it is a celebrity real estate blog after all, as you pointed out.

Get over yourself and your misguided attempt at being clever. The only reason the comment was broken up was the size of the post. And you are aware how very convoluted and idiotic your logic is? Your response and logic are literally nonsensical and circular. Besides I can see a nerve was struck. Truth often has that effect on the self important who deny their own failings and inflate those of others to make themselves feel better. And I assure if anyone lacks courage of any kind to back what they said? It would not be me. So move along and spar with someone on your level. Elementary school gets out soon. Look that way you mental giant you.

Just one thing: I'm simply in awe of how massive an essay Leann and Brandi just inspired. You go gurls!

Brandi will be cohosting the Oscar arrivals this Sunday. Leann will be nowhere near the stars I'm sure shell be in her pjs tucking in Brandi's boys in her new mansion in the boonies

I'm in awe of what I believe is Leann Rimes herself (or employee) has attempted to do to US! Mamas army!
Girlfriend we already love all housewives by default, so you've already got one strike against you right there!
Not to mention the being a horrible person and all that stuff.
With that funky ass grill and all, just go Leann.

Anonymous said...

Good. The house has a "separate guest house" so Eddie wont' have to use the main house when LeAnn is out making a living for him.

Also, I am not sure the bottom pictures are of this house. They don't look like the others I have seen. Swimming pool is fenced and not shaped like the one in the pictures.

Omg ew! Did Leann infiltrate Mamas blog and attempt to change our perception of her with two long, never-going-to-be-read comments?
Bitch plz

Gee, and here I thought it was Adrienne Maloof...and I already gave my lawyer a heads up to expect a "letter".

Anonymous said...

Don't worry about Adrienne. She's working overtime backtracking and doing damage control right now, so she don't have time for petty letters until the mess from her other petty shit clears up, which probably won't be until she gets fired by Bravo.

I love the idea that a celebrity snatches up a short sale on such a big property like that. I really like the writing in these articles, too, Estalker.

Very fun ride, this post & comments! Perfect fodder for a long layover in Denver!
