In Other…

…real estate news about women who date rich and powerful men, Manuela Herzer, the much younger and former female companion of troubled Tinesltown tycoon Sumner Redstone, has purchased the Mulholland Drive compound of Lance Bass, the bug eyed ex-boy bander turned every one’s favorite Hollywood homosexual. We tease. Like everyone else, we like Miss Bass.

Property records reveal that Miz Herzer paid $3,850,000 for the hill top estate that includes a total of 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, two swimming pools, a guest house and spectacular views of both the San Fernando Valley and the glittery lights of Tinseltown. Unless the records are wrong, poor Lance Bass took a bit of a financial bath on this sale since the purchase price is slightly less than the $3,880,000 records show he paid for the place back in October of 2003.

Mister Bass had been living in New York City recently, but to be honest, we’re not actually sure of his real estate wherabouts at this point.

Unfortunately, Your Mama knows next to nothing about Miz Herzner. She’s reported to be several decades younger than Mister Redstone–who apparently likes his ladee friends young enough to be his daughter–and in late 2008, amidst his seemingly amicable deevorce from the also much younger Paula Fortunato, Mister Redstone was twice spotted dining about town with Miz Herzer sparking rumors that there might be a reconciliation between the former lovebirds.

According to both Our Fairy Godmother in Beverly Hills and proven with property records, in November of 2008 the recently kicked to the curb Miz Fortunato forked over $4,150,000 of her settlement money to buy a 5 bedroom and 9 bathroom house on Liebe Drive in Beverly Hills. Not bad for a gal who was a modestly paid 40-year old New York City school teacher before hooking up with her octogenarian ex-huzband in 2003.

    According to The China Daily: “Property prices in China’s 70 major cities were up 0.8 percent in June, the fourth month-on-month growth in a row this year, according to statistics from the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). In some areas, the property price has even exceeded the record high of 2007 when the market was sizzling.”

    The size of house and lot are surprising for the price Anon 12:42.

    I have been in the house…. The house was originally and ranch and they expanded and built a second story. Aside from bad finishes and terrible decorating the floorplan is odd. Bedrooms accessed off main living areas, not hallways, the upstairs has odd shaped rooms. The whole package needs some major work. That said, the house was probably still worth more he just wanted it sold and listed it to sell which in order to do that in LA right nowyou have to make it a DEAL!!! Look at Scary Spices house… sold in 1 day.

    Can someone help me out? Why did the house sell for so little? 3.85 million for a house in beverly hills, with two swimming pools,views and acerage seems like not very much to me. While I know that the house wasn’t particually nice, and that the interiors were awful, it was still large, and in good condition. Nothing a few updates to kitchen/bathrooms/lights/paint/fixtures couldnt fix. Don’t homes of this type usually sell for much more, sometimes well over 10 million?

    All I’m saying is don’t houses with no views, smaller land, and smaller houses, in similar condition sell for alot more within in the same area?

    Just wondering…

    Given the collapse in the California housing market for him to come out more or less even does not seem to bad a loss.

    But if he needs a place to live, I could find room for him if he doesn’t mind sharing a bed ;)

    2:31– one suspects that you secretly dream of “gay sex and semen” at night… I mean, what are you so afraid of? And I take it that straight sex, resulting as it does in only half the semen, is acceptable to you? Or would you be more comfortable living in a nunnery? I’m told that in such establishments gay sex is rampant, but at least you wouldn’t have to deal with all that icky semen.

    Was Mercedes the Pan Am stewardess, or was that Anne Bass? Or was it bosomy Susan Gutfruend? Anyway, while you ponder that, I am trying to decide who, if I had a gun held to my head, I would choose to sleep with, Mick or Sumner. Mick, of course, but still, eeew.

    Poor Miss Bass…. finally takes a loss on this house of hideousness. Hopefully Herzer redecorates accordingly as this could be a beautiful southern style house, a bit quircky but much nicer than it has been.
