Lookit What Your Mama Did...

We don't like to toot our own horn too much, children, but too-toot-toot!

Today the venerable entertainment news juggernaut The Hollywood Reporter published a full page piece they actually paid Your Mama to write about celebrities who buy other celebrity owned homes.

Imagine that?

The article appears in the April 5th (2013) printed edition—the one with a profile of Jay Leno looking darn tired on the cover—as well as on the interweb.

No surprise at all, mama! You have a beautiful way with words, and unbelievably adept ear to the ground and simply run the best damn RE blog on the nets. Bravo!

As a wiser (and more wizened) prospector than me once crowed, "There's GOLD in them thar Hills!" and Lordy, Mama, if you ain't the gal with the pick-axe to prove it.

You deserve every ounce because no one works harder to unearth these nuggets. Corngats!

Mama Dearest,

Why does that not surprise me?!
I've loved every snarky syllable you ever inked.

Does this mean you and the Good Dr.Cooter are gonna start breakfasting at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Now you can get rid of that old Selectrix and buy a Montblanc. Congratulations on your well deserved recognition. I, for one, will not be satisfied until you have a TV show of your own.

Mama, Your interweb link to Hollywood Reporter just blew a fuse -- and so did I.

No one deserves this more. God broke the mold when he made you.

Candy Spelling said...

Mama, design differences aside, I've always appreciated your blog and big BMW. But the new Range Rovers just debuted and I do declare - they look positively tempting. Just saying!

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
Ill make you so sure about it

God only knows what I'd be without you

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I'd be without you

I am so proud of you! Congratulations!

Can I bluntly ask you, since you've covered a few books on your blog, do you plan on writing a thing or two about John Finton's newly released one?

Mama Dearest

My happy sentiments for you have already been expressed by some of the other children, so I will just add a long and enthusiastic "guuurrrl...!"

Mama, just why do the celebrities buy/sell/buy/sell, over and over and over again? Does it have to do with tax writeoffs, cash flow problems, nothing better to do with their time, people that fancy themselves as "real estate investors", prestige, insecurity, bragging, dumbassness, what? Because a lot of them lose their shirts on these houses. Some of them couldn't see a bad investment if it ran over them on the 405, you know?

Madam Pince said...

Yay Mama!!!

Dolores Valencia de Guerrero said...

And you even worked in a Totie Fields reference. Love.

Sandpiper said...


SOS ... Uh-Oh!! A little FYI also posted on Aussy piece above ...

Just found a comment spot under Mama's article in the Hollywood Reporter. How cool is that?

Hi Dolores, Totally missed the Totie Fields passage. Will jump back and catch it. Remember her well. We lost her due to plastic surgery complications I think. So unfortunate. She was crazy funny.

Good work Mama!

Momma, we're just thrilled. You deserve a damn Pulizer. But they'll never give you one 'til you tone it down and get as boring as the LA Times.

My comment is a LL (little late kinda like me always fashionably late) but wanted to say Congrats!!! I hope you and the Dr. Cooter are enjoying mimosas on Easter!
