A Few Tidbits for Tuesday

1.Poor Hulk Hogan. Once upon a time he was at the top of the Wrestlemania heap (or whatever). Nowadays he shills for Rent-A-Center (or whatever) and finally, no doubt much to his pocketbook’s relief, sold the 17,000-plus square foot Belleair, FL mansion he’s had on and off the market since 2006 when it was listed at $25,000,000. The water front spread sold, according to property records and recent reports, for just (about) $6,200,000, less than 25% of what he originally hoped it was worth.

The Tudor-style mansion was where Mister Hulk Hogan—whose real name is the far more prosaic Terry Bollea—his now ex-wife Linda and their where-are-they-now? children taped their short-lived and (blessedly) long-ago cancelled reality program Hogan Knows Best.

Fun fact: Even though Mister Bollea shared this big ol’ house in Bellair with his first wife and kids, in 2010 he married his much younger second wife on the beach behind the property. The police were called in to bust up a brawl that broke out when a photographer tried to crash the nuptials. Now that, children, is classy with a k. (via Tampa Bay Online)

In case you haven’t heard preggers again Tinseltown heiress turned reality show denizen Tori Spelling and her actor husband Dean McDermott—this will be their fourth baby—have flipped the 1.73 acre Malibu (CA) property they bought last September (2011) for $2,400,000 back on the market with an asking price of $2,675,000.

Listing photos show the house devoid of furnishings, a clear indication the McDermott-Spellings have already moved on to their next forever house, wherever that may be.

In the fall of 2008 the frequently procreating pair paid $2,945,000 for a 6 bedroom and 6.5 bathroom (mc)mansion in Encino that they listed last April (2011) at $3,199,000 and sold in December (2011) for $2,500,000, a substantial $445,000 loss not counting carrying costs, improvement and real estate fees.

3.
Speaking of reality show denizens, Lauren Conrad recently dropped $1,350,000 to scoop up a 3,233 square foot condo crib in a secured Beverly Hills, CA building with 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a double-height living room and yard-sized deck. Listing images suggest the place could use a good face lift; There appear to be icky popcorn ceilings and lots of confusing mirrored walls.

Miss Conrad also owns a Spanish style casa in the leafy Sunset Square area of Hollywood she bought in early 2008 for $2,360,000 and put on the market in September 2011 for $2,250,000, a price tag that eventually dipped to $2,100,000. The property now appears as pending/in contract with an unknown buyer for an unknown price. (via Trulia Luxe Living)

Justin Timberlake launches a home line. Seriously? What’s with all these dilettantish Tinseltowers who have their manicured fingers in so many money-making pies? No offense Mister Timberlake, but sometimes it’s just better to stay in one’s lane, you know? (via Curbed)

    Actually, that was not Tori at 11:01. LOL, Candy’s looks? There isn’t a surgeon in the world that could do a thing with her. Even Warhol had trouble….and he made everyone look fabulous.

    I believe Mama Spelling got her start selling bras and panties at I. Magnin, not that there is anything wrong with that. But she could have been the Joan Crawford character in The Women.

  2. Candy Spelling says:

    Tori, I know that’s you at 11:01. Hunny, I love you but you need to get back to taking care of my grandbabies. I know you’re hurt that you didn’t inherit my looks or entrepreneurial spirit, but there’s nothing I can do about it. XOXO

    Where is the Spelling-McDermott family residing now???

    Tori seems to be doing quite well on her own and did get $800K.

    Yeah, the mom is crazy and a horder (running around to Costcos to get nutcrackers and the original “dogs playing poker” painting)- but parents don’t owe their grown kids anything.

    I had the displeasure of meeting Candy once, and all I can say is that I would rather starve that take a penny from that hag. Tacky, rude and a beast.

  5. Candy Spelling says:

    Hunnies, if I said it once I’ve said if a million times. Tori will not be getting a cent from me, due to the atrocities she has committed.

    Back in ’04, I gave Whori one full year and unlimited funds to get her squashed dung beetle of a schnoz fixed. I even gave her the numbers of four of my own personal plastic surgeons. How does she repay my thoughtfulness? By shacking up with some married redneck from some worthless foreign country, with no money and no prospects. Oh my stars! I was aghast.

    Money doesn’t go as far as it used to. I only got half what I wanted for The Manor. And my beauty, believe it or not, doesn’t come cheap. I have made sure that my grandbabies will be well taken care of, however. But their Jezebel of a mother won’t be seeing a penny of it unless she gets that Satanic mask fixed.

    Oh my, does Justin have “interior decorator” genes in him (if you get my meaning)? He supposedly has dated several beauties and is ripe for marriage. Oh well, he has developed a beard too, has he not?

    What does it mean – “she got ‘taken'”?

    2:03-Back when Tori was estranged from her mom and she and Dean and just got married, they made no secret that they wanted a lot of kids.

    I still thinking one of the funniest scenes ever is from Selling The Manor. Candy shleps to like South Central LA to pick out her own granite for her penthouse because she got “taken” when they built the Manor.Its funny but sad all together, her obsession with money. And what also is sad is paying THAT much to get an A M Stern apartment, and not shelling out the money to have them decorate it.

    Mama, I couldn’t agree with you more wholeheartedly about Justin Timberlake having a home line. Honestly, stick with what you know. If you are going to branch out into design, at least go full-on like Lenny Kravitz. Otherwise it’s just another Cindy Crawford/Kathy Ireland/Justin Timberlake POS line.

    7:52, haha, I basically told my mother the exact same thing the other day. Either Tori has all these kids in hopes that Candi gives her more and more money or there may have been a provision in the will that gives money for any grandchildren.

    There is definitely a reason she is having all these kids at such a fast rate. Candi should stop being a greedy tightwad and give Tori her rightful inheritance and Aaron was a bastard for making his will in such a manner.

    “classy with a k” — does that mean the Hulk married one of those Kartrashian sisters?? Fitting, I guess….

    They are having all of those babes in hope that Candy will put them in the will.

    Candy doesn’t give Tori dough, but maybe she indeed put down a nice down payment on another property for Tori and fam.

    Re Tori Spelling in Malibu.. I cant find the original posting from when they bought that mess Mamma? Back then I begged Candy to give up some Manor bucks so her grand babies could live somewhere decent. Maybe Candy read it and coughed up some green? And I love you Mamma, but be careful with JT. He is a class act, and I would sleep on his sheets and/or bed any time…

    Did you mean Lauren Conrad put her house up for sale in September 2011?
