Madonna in Palm Beach?

WHO: Madonna Ciccone Penn Ritchie
LOCATION: Sheltingham Drive, Wellington, FL
PRICE: $50,000/month
SIZE: 9,500 square feet (approx.) 6 bedrooms, 7 full and 2 half bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: …This immaculate custom home, selling not only fully furnished with interior design by noted N.Y. designer, also includes brand new tvs, electronic systems, new linens, etc. The main house house 5 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms with 3 master suites and a separate guest house. There is an indoor/outdoor living flow around the pool with a fabulous outdoor kitchen.

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: According to one of Your Mama’s sources (and Palm Beach gossip Jose Lambiet), maneating Madonna Ciccone Penn Ritchie has forked over a hefty $50,000 to lease a mansion for one month behind the gates of the posh Palm Beach Polo and Country Club in Wellington, FL where she can spend some quality time with her new besties, professional polo stud Nacho Figueras and his wifey Delfina.

Her Madgesty has reportedly been spending an increasing amount of time in the Palm Beach area and according to Señor Lambiet, she’s pecking around for a Palm Beach pad. Pleeze. Your Mama would love nothing more than to witness the glorious spectacle of the well preserved 50 year old superstar storming the staid shores of Palm Beach with her posse of pretty boys, security goons and sycophants, but somehow we sort of doubt the Kabbalah Kween is looking to put down real roots in Palm Beach. Maybe. Could be. She has owned a house in Florida before. However, real estate rumors constantly swirl around Madonna and should be seen, heard and read with a giant grain of salt and cynicism. Wasn’t it just a couple of weeks ago that everyone thought she was dumping thity-eight million clams on a new townhouse in Manhattan, a purchase that has yet to materialize? With this bee-hawtcha, it’s all real estate rumor and gossip until she actually scratches her name on the deed’s dotted line.

Anyhoo, thanks to our pal the Palm Beach Bizzy Bee, we’ve uncovered a few facts and figures about the property where Madonna and clan are rumored to be bunking. Property records show the mansion once belonged to BET network co-founder Sheila Johnson and measures 6,277 square feet while listing information puts it at about 9,500 square feet, a number that includes the 650 square foot guest house where Madge can park her scantily clad men in waiting.

Listing information shows the property includes a total of 6 bedrooms , 7 full and 2 half bathrooms which means, of course, that Her Highness will likely need to bring her terlit gurl down from New York because somehow we don’t imagine one of Lourdes’ chores is to scrub down the terlits.

The interiors spaces of her rental residence were apparently did up by a big name N.Y. designer, and while it all looks like a thousand other Palm Beach mansions, it seems a bit grey haired for a middle aged gal desperate to retain her youth and beauty.

The back of the house faces the golf course and opens to a long and deep covered terraced with gauzy curtains, a swimming pool, spa, pool pavilion and outdoor kitchen where her current conquest, 22- year old male model Jesus Luz–who has reportedly moved in to her New York City spread–can cook up whatever sort of macrobiotic vittles won’t slip through the grill on the barbecue pit.

Miz Madonna’s Palm Beach proclivities are certainly interesting to Your Mama, but what we really want to know is now that she’s a deevor-say, what’s going to happen to her the double wide townhouse in London she shared with the ex-huzband and what’s the fate of her big house in Beverly Hills that sits on a particularly swank section of Sunset Boulevard? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

    Britney Spears, not created a media controversy??? Where have YOU been 7:36, in a cave? So you are now looking for digs here in the outside world? hahaha!

    The thing is, in this youth obsessed world, a woman who is “old” at 50 trounces her much younger and supposedly hotter rivals! And please, don’t be daft, those Madonna “controversies” are not media baiting: they happen way AFTER her album release. And ARoid’s marriage was HIS and his wife’s fault, not M’s.

    Well, what can haters do, Madonna is a winner! LOL

    anon 7:21 AM…

    Can you explain to me how Beyonce’s and Britney Spear’s albums “tanked” globally when “I Am… Sasha Fierce” sold a million copies and “Circus” sold one point five million copies outside the U.S.

    To date, Madonna’s “Hard Candy” has sold only five hundred thousand copies more than “Circus” and slightly over two hundred thousand copies more than “I Am… Sasha Fierce” in total album sales worldwide.I find Britney and Beyonce’s sales more impressive in the current music climate, seeing as neither of those artist had to created media controversy to stay relevant.Unlike Madonna, who divorce a husband,did her best Angelina Jolie imitation,broke up the married of a superstar athlete, and paraded around the world with a man child young enough to be her son.

    Hahaha! Get educated 11:43, get some k.n.o.w.l.e.d.g.e and suck the shit outta your system. Madonna is doing great, is a winner, unlike many jealous wankers here. End of. Move on. Go buy a villa and get happy.

    ^ Ha, by YOUR standard, the US would be the ONLY country in the world and Billboard the only music charts. Very smart of you! LOL

    FYI, in case you don’t know, by the end of ’08, Madonna’s “Hard Candy” was the SECOND biggest selling album of the year by a solo artist, topped only by Duffy’s “Rockferry”. It would make HC then the highest seller by an AMERICAN artist in the WORLD, counting the US of course. Add to that, her single “4 minutes” has gone double platinum, becoming one of the year’s biggest selling singles either in physical form or downloads– a feat not achieved by even “Single ladies” or “Womanizer”

    And had Madonna not going away from Warner’s, HC would’ve been recertified platinum by now for sales almost reaching 800k, which, for other albums sales exceeding 700k is enough for a platinum certification..

    Beyonce’s and Britney’s albums may have sold more in the US, but they TANKED globally, each not approaching anywhere near the global sales level of HC, each nowhere near the number of countries HC has gone #1 in. Ha, so much for them being hotter than a 50 year old!

    And since no one really is selling records all that much anymore, Madonna has proven time and again to be the biggest stage draw of all: her latest tour has just become the highest grossing concert tour OF ALL TIME by a solo artist, male or female, filling STADIUMS. Now, please wake me if Britney or Beyonce can ever DO stadiums, ok?

    But, as Mama says, we digress.. So, going back to real estate: I hope realestalker will have a report soon on M’s THIRTY EIGHT MILLION DOLLAR UES house.. :)

    12:02 – “Hard Candy” only certified Gold. That is half a million copies.

    Compare that to the train wreck everyone wrote off in 2008 named Britney Spears whose “Circus” album has already certified Platinium. That is twice as many copies.

    Or Beyonce’s “I Am Sasha Fierce” at 2x Platinum, that is 4 times as many copies.

    Hardly what I would call “white hot”. By your standard, Jessica Simpson’s career is “white hot” with a gold certification of her last album.

    Madonna HAS indeed just bought for herself a THIRTY EIGHT MILLION DOLLAR UES crib. Done deal. Good for her! She’s enjoying the fruits of her labor (among other fruits lol)and couldn’t CARE an ounce what her pathetic haters think or say.

    Beautiful children, strong spirituality (despite all those hollow naysayers), a thriving philanthropic endeavor, a still white hot, record-breaking career rounding out it’s third decade, a hot boyfriend, a name that can just about make everyone else’s pale in comparison, a productive creative life, tons of money, lots of good friends, and MOST OF ALL, an absence of any CRAZY MELTDOWN despite life’s ups and downs (so frustrating that she’s so… sane, isn’t it, guys?)– whew! she has it all… :)

    btw… yeah, this rental is too granny…

    lissen, this is tragic, but please note: god does not answer prayers. ever.

    if you’re spared, this has already been approved by his advance team, who would’ve delivered her from her fate.

    people die. real estate values go up. they do down. the world spins round and the planet tilts on an axis.

    as for madonna, all michigan girls want a place in florida.

    will she be interesting in middle age … or just cher redux.

    i’m betting on cher redux.

    Madonna in Palm Beach? She surely would be the most fun and tasteful presence there since Marjorie M. Post.

    6:46 – You are stating the obvious about 90% the negative comments regardless of the celebrity. The other 10% of the negative comments are coming from the sad little people who have no friends and their only means of communication with the real world is to insult and wait for the celebrities’ fans to reply defending the celebrity.

    I love the nasty comments towards Madonna. It shows all the bitterness and resentment of the ones writting them, the ones actually taking time to talk badly about someone they don’t like. It says a lot about their lives ( or therefor lack of).

    Oh Mama, it looks like the celesbians DeGenerossi are househunting again. Portia de Rossi was on Leno just last night as well telling a story about being interested in a property owned by her friend, because said property is big enough to keep horses in (as you very well know, Portia loves to ride…horses). The property, according to El DG’s wifey has a quarter-mile driveway but she didn’t say who this friend was. Now Mama, would you happen to know the identity of said friend.

    I dont mean to point out the obvious but $50k per month over a 25year period is about $15mil. (yes i kno interest rates bla bla bla)

    Madonna can do so much better than this!

    There is probably as much, if not more, money in Wellington than in the Hamptons, Palm Beach, etc…but the only reason to be there is if your child competes on the NHSA circuit…which in itself costs a fortune to do!

    OK Princess, here you go. From the blog Perpetually Chic: Most people think of Palm Beach when they think of a Florida getaway but those who are serious about horses live in Wellington and Kelly Klein is no different. Her Wellington home was featured in the May 2007 issue of Elle Decor and is yet another example of her clean and chic style. Of course, just like in her New York apartment photographs of horses and beautiful books are prominently displayed. It’s also light and airy and

    does anybody recall that story about Kelly Klein? Mama, mama, can you hear me? It was quite a spread, wherever it was. I’m thinking Wellington, though.

    It’s very Estee Lauder or Lily Pulitzer…which in Madonna’s case is not a good thing.

    Also, this place is in Wellington, not Palm Beach and there’s just no excuse for that sort of dishonesty.

    This woman is the biggest bitch with no talent. I still want my $ back from the confessions tour when I still liked her.

    Wellington is a weird disconnect. Utterly banal inland Florida landscape coupled with utterly banal development coupled with horsey/smart set/Millbrook/Hamptons types who otherwise wouldn’t be caught dead in a place like this.

  35. I love the pool area, I’d go swim in there every day of the week. The interiors look very homey and comfortable.

    Thanks for the link. According to this, Madonna is supposedly learning how to be a show jumper, and training in Wellington. I don’t think so. But they do have a picture of her with Nacho and Delphina, so apparently she was down there, probably making snide comments to anyone who would listen about the decor of the house she was up in.

    I don’t know whether Madge is renting this place or not, but there are pictures and whatnot of her hanging about in Wellington with Nacho.

    Of all the little items out there, Mama goes with this. Interesting. Snookered by a real estate lady in Wellington? I. . . don’t think so. Yeah, maybe Madonna et al have been invited down by Nacho and his wife to watch him play (watch out wife!) this weekend, and maybe they arranged to have whomever lend/rent them this place for the weekend. That’s it. Remember Madonna’s little horse accident, supposedly the beginning of the end for her and Guy because he wasn’t “supportive” enough afterwards? She’s not a rider. She’s not going to spend any more part of the month in Wellington, but she could have well laid out 50k for the weekend, long or otherwise.
