YOUR MAMAS NOTES: We're not sure if Miz Lisa Gores qualifies as a celebrity, but her story is trés scandalous so we figured we'd do a little post on her and her for sale Beverly Hills house. It wasn't so long ago that Miz Lisa was married to Mister Alec Gores, who in 2006 Forbes Magazine ranked as the 606th richest person in the world with a net worth of $1.3 billion dollars.

But under that mountain of money lies a sordid story of sex, lies, and illegal wire-tapping. Yes, children, Miz Lisa and her hubby were caught up in the Anthony Pellicano celebrity wire-tapping case which had big name and big money Hollywood types storming lawyers' offices from Los Feliz to the far reaches of Malee-boo. Your Mama is going to give you the reader's digest of what happened here, but we'll link you over to more information if you're interested.

Once upon a time Miz Lisa was married to private equity billionaire Mister Alec Gores and they lived happily up in a 10,000+ square foot mansion the guard gated celebrity enclave of Mulholland Estates. The children will recall this is the very same 'hood where the spitter Avril Lavigne, helmut headed Loni Anderson, and former Beach Boy Brian Wilson currently have their houses on the market. And in fact, the Gores lived right up next door to the house Tom Arnold purchased from wacky American Idol judge Paula Abdul and recently sold for just over $7,400,000.

Anyhoo, our Mister Alec Gores has a Beverly Hills based younger brother named Tom who according to Forbes happens to have even more money than his brother with a 2006 net worth of $1.7 billion. At some point in the late 1990s or early 2000s our Mister Alec became suspicious that wifey was having inappropriate conduct with brother Tom. Uh oh.

So what does he do? He calls one-time celebrity private eye Anthony Pellicano, pays him a reported $50,000 (plus a never repaid $50,000 loan and a lavish trip to Hawaii) to illegally tap the telephones of wifey and brother Tom.

And according to all reports, Pellicano obtained taped phone calls which indicated Miz Lisa and brother Tom were fooling around. Oh dear. Naturally, a very expensive dee-vorce ensues and Miz Lisa decamps from the Mulholland Estates manse to this house in the Deep Canyon area of Beverly Hills, which is basically just on the other side of Mulholland Drive from Mulholland Estates.

Miz Lisa purchased this house in August of 2001 for $2,460,000. Your Mama has no idea why she's choosing to sell now, but our guess is that's she's flush with dee-vorce money and she wants something a little less fancy suburbs and a little more glamorous dee-vorce-ay. But hunnies, that is sheer speculation and we have no proof of that whatsoever, so don't go around quoting that nonsense.

You want to know what we think of the house? Ack. It's a lovely house if you like tiny drive courts and living slammed up against your other richie-rich neighbors. Clearly Miz Lisa had her nice gay decorator up in the house turning it into an Architectural Digest fantasmagoria complete with tapestries, leaded glass chandeliers, and velvet covered furniture with rope fringe around the bottom. A big yawn in our book.

But the backyard, although not large, we are feeling pleasantly in our gut. We appreciate the simply shaped swimming pool and spa with it's lovely green color. The outdoor fireplace is fantastic and we particularly dig the covered loggia with the wood beamed ceiling which is of course a great place to get away from the scorching Southern California sunshine.

Your Mama wishes Miz Lisa all the happiness in the world as she moves on to her next home. A little advice the future, no more fooling around with the in-laws even if they are richer and better looking than your own spouse.

i think you should all stop getting into a private situation that should have never been made public and let them all live their lives however they choose, karma will come along in the long run, no need to rub it in.

I disagree. Normally I would respect the privacy of others but in this case I'll make an exception. It's because it's important for people to know who and what Alec Gores is. Only Alec Gores could be cuckolded by his own brother and still come off less sympathetic than Tom. Alec Gores is a piece of shit, scumbag gangster wannabe. He goes around pulling shenanigans like this because he's drunk on power.

Did you ever see the movie Raging Bull? Alec is the type of new money, egomaniac master-of-the-universe type so common in Los Angeles who marry golddiggers way out of their league and then act all surprised that they can't hold onto them--as if a woman half his age with looks would like him for anything more than his big bucks. He was probably not so much hurt by the betrayal as the blow dealt to his overinflated male ego. Guys like him are so used to sycophants sucking up to them that they start believing their own myth that they really are great and can't take it when reality puts them squarely in their case.

Do you think wannabe Hollywood player Alec Gores learned his lesson and married a woman in his league? Noooo. He turns around and marries Hedi Gores, a smoking hot trophy wife even younger and hotter than Lisa (sorry Lisa) and probably the kidding of himself continues, along with a pre-nup. No doubt she's blowing Tom right now and he sleeps in his chair drooling.

Alec Gores looks like Walter Mathau without the panache. Who is he to think he can get chicks who aren't just using him? If you're a flashy, money-man who relies on riches to score with nothing else to offer the opposite sex, don't be so surprised when wifey shops around to get her pipes cleaned.

To hell with Alec Gores. His public humiliation couldn't have happened to a nicer person.
