During the first week of October Your Mama discussed the Beverly Hill (Post Office) compound of Oscar nominated actor and living in sin Catholic Mark Wahlberg that hit the market with an asking price of $15,900,000.
Well children, early this morning the lovely Ann Brenoff, who pens the Hot Properties column at the struggling L.A. Times, reported that Mister Wahlberg’s 5 bedroom and 10.5 bathroom property on Oak Pass Road–which includes a detached guest house, a swimming pool with a Playboy Mansion style grotto, and a gigantic gymnasium with boxing ring–was in the process of being purchased–with cash–by a member of the Saudi Royal family for $14,000,000.
However, an amended and vague report now mysteriously reads simply, “an offer has been made by a Los Angeles business man but there is no finalized deal.”
Hmm. Inneresting. Something’s fishy. Guess we’ll just have to sit tight and see how all this shakes out in the next couple of weeks.
