Brittany Murphy’s Mother Lists Hollywood Hills House

All us real estate gossips and celebrity property watchers knew this day was a comin‘ and that day, lamb cakes, has arrived. Recently deceased actress Brittany Murphy’s hairrific widower Simon Monjack contacted the folks at gossip juggernaut TMZ to let them know that Miss Murphy’s mother–who now, apparently, controls Miss Murphy’s assets–hoisted her Hollywood Hills home on to the market with an asking price of $7,250,000.

The 8,000 square foot house at the tail end of Rising Glen Road is where the young actress died of a complicated causes having to do with pneumonia, iron deficiency anemia and multiple (prescription) dug intoxication while taking a shower on the 20th of December 2009. She was 32 years old. Miss Murphy is perhaps best known for her roles in Clueless, 8 Mile and Riding in Cars with Boys. But as far as Your Mama is concerned her enduring professional legacy–if indeed she has one–was her 12-year run high-lariously voicing the absurdly naive Luanne Platter on the animated boob-toob series King of the Hill

Property records and multitudes of previous reports show that Miss Murphy bought the multi-story, quoin cornered Mediterranean mansion from pop super star Britney Spears in June of 2003. Brittany paid Britney $3,850,000 for the 5 bedroom and 5 pooper property that Miss Spears owned and occupied for a few years during the tail end of her not exactly virginal Justin Timberlake years.

Miss Murphy and her much older huzband Mister Monjack, who were wedded in May of 2007, reportedly shared the wonky looking house in the hills with her mother. As far as we know, Momma Murphy and Mister Monjack are still living up in the house (comma) together. Mister Monjack, who plans on attending the Academy Awards ceremony this weekend in his wife’s honor hopes to attend with her mother.

Your Mama has yet to locate an online listing for the property that will likely attract a lot of looky loos if not serious buyers.
