UPDATE: Avril "The Spitter" Lavigne

SELLER: Avril Lavigne
LOCATION: Clerendon Road, Beverly Hills, CA
PRICE: $6,200,000
SIZE: 6,864 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: Celebrity owned Italian Villa in the prestigious guard gated community of Mulholland Estates. Soaring 2 story foyer open to generously scaled rms. This luxurious home features French doors, hardwood floors, expansive ceilings & a gourmet kitchen w2/ every conceivable amenity. All bedrooms en suite, pool, spa, private north/south tennis court, BBQ, numerous gardens & yard.

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Oh lawhd children, it's back like a nasty STD you cain't get rid of. Your Mama thought this I-talian villa had done been sold off, but alas, Canadian faux punk pop princess Avril "The Spitter" Lavigne has recently put her Mulholland Estates house back on the market for $6,200,000.

According to property records, Miz Lavigne bought this house in July of 2004 for an undisclosed sum of money from Pamela Bowen, the former wife of Paul Stanley of the rock band Kiss. (As an aside, Miz Bowen has her current Bel Air residence on the market for $6,950,000)

Poor, poor Miz Lavigne. She gets so much bad press about her rebellious teenage 'tude and she can't seem to unload her former Beverly Hills bachelorette pad.

And then of course there was all that brouhaha about whether Av and her baby rock star huzband Deryck Whibley did or did not buy the former Bel Air home of Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler. They did, but then tried to play the press by pretending they had not, which Your Mama thinks was just a failed and silly attempt at being clever.

Avril doll, we're annoyed by your juvenile behavior (such as gleefully spitting on photographers) as much as the next gossip, but you should let Your Mama know if you need to speak to the Dr. Cooter about getting you some pills to help you manage all the real estate drama.

Does Your Mama even need to tell the children that the Mulholland Estates neighborhood is the very same guard gated community where heiress Paris Hilton just bought a new house? Also in the 'hood is Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, Vanna White, and Charlie Sheen just to name a couple of the resident Hollywood glitterati in Mulholland Estates.

This house is nice, even if too big.

I am wishin and hopin and thinkin and prayin that someone will make a garage door which is attractive because that is what ruins Ms Lavigne's borderline tacky house. I like the Mulholland Estates because it's the kind of place celebrities can live without annoying paparazzi interruption. They can frolick naked, snort cocaine and have sex in hot tubs in peace thank you very much.

At least she had the common sense to show the house unfurnished . the condo in Toronto she was selling was decorated in pure country hick.

I was just looking at the Bel Air house that Lavine is supposedly buying, on The sad thing is that the exact same house was built 3 doors down. If i were paying 10mil for a house. My neighbor better not have the same one. 10 mil track houses come on....

prices are already starting to drop by 40% in Hawaii and Fred Sands over the weekend in LA told realtors at the annual conference to start dropping their clients unless they are willing to dramatically cut their asking prices. He also told the realtors to find other jobs outside of real estate.

I wonder if the Avril house comes down to 2MM ? 1MM ?

Some have even said that the market could go down -130 % ?

It's pretty sad when people stoop so low as to advertise their crap on someone's blog. SHAME on you.

Remember I said the re market is going to drop 70% ? well now I think it will go down -130%

what do you think ?

"Huge Inventory Reduction Sale -- Up to $200,000 Off" was one ad for houses by Century Vintage Homes in Riverside and San Bernardino counties that caught my eye. At a golf course community in Desert Hot Springs, homes were being marked down from $565,000 to $365,000.

You see this is what I have been talking about.....

A 30,000 sqft mansion in hawaii (oahu, kahala area) was listed 3 years ago for 60MM, it is situated right next to 3 the 3 plots of beachfront property that geffen is currently trying to sell for 20MM each and the Kahala Hilton is it's next door neighbor. The owner was the Donald Trump of Hawaii, he built resorts in the 70's and 80's.

This estate was in his family for over 25 years, they had parties for heads of state, presidents, royalty over there.

It was a hawaiian palace, I went to a few high school parties 25 years ago over there, it was truly an amazing piece of art.

The owner dies in 2003, the place went into disarray, it was sold last year for 9MM cash to an investor from a chinese bank that had forclosed on it, this investor just unloaded it to a japanese investor for 13MM, he is trying to sell it for 20MM quietly, no takers.

The ride is over, we just don't know it yet.

Are you fucking kidding?

Did you read what you wrote? Some guy just FLIPPED that property for $4M profit. And that's a sign the ride is over?

Your obsession with a tanking market is bizarre.

Maaaaaaaamaaaaaaaaaa! Git outta bed. Yer chilruns is hungry.

There is such a thing as incorrectly priced properties. I don't know anything about the Hawaii property but 565k in Desert Hot Springs was a pipe dream even in the hot market.

ie; Boy Named Sue

Yes but it was on the market less than 3 years ago for 60MM. For it to go from 60MM asking price into forclosure to selling for half of what it was really worth in a good market is a bad sign for what is to come.

The investor who bought it sold it to a japanese billionaire who has a reputation of tanking prices.

here is the link.

btw watch your language, my kids read these posts.

Producer 08, oh I know, don't you just hate it when people say FLIPPED. Mama and I have been trying to get Caveman to stop saying (skid marks) and I have a feeling he'll say it again. I'm thinking of putting one of those blocks on my computer so I won't have to see it when he does. Maybe you should put one on your computer too. Hugs and kisses.

IMHO, this isn't a website that anyone SHOULD be letting their children read. Mama has made it clear she isn't censoring the comments and whether the comment is f-king or the many other adult discussions, it is very clear this is a site for ADULTS. Do your own damn parenting.

I actually think the house COULD be quite beautiful. A major overhaul to bring it away from the Beige mess is however needed.

I think the home was originally way overpriced, and now... is still on the high side, seen as Paris Hilton's home a few hundred sq ft LARGER cost her $5.9m.

Drop it another $500k Avril and you may actually sell it.

There was a deal on this place and it just fell out of contract AGAIN! Will she ever unload this place??
