A Little Monday Mish Mash: Rosie O’Donnell

Comedienne Rosie O’Donnell hardly qualifies for food stamps. The lady is most assuredly rich by an any standard. However, the entrepreneurial entertainer and outspoken social commentator certainly brings home less bacon than she did in her Showbiz salad days of yore and this may (or may not) have something to do with her mad rush to shrink her once bulging real estate portfolio.

In June (2013) she sold her water front estate on Miami Beach’s illustrious Star Island for $16.5 to real estate investors David and Linda Frankel, the latter, Your Mama learned from a socially connected acquaintance, being broadcast journalist Diane Sawyer’s older sister. Anyhoo…

A few weeks ago, much to the surprise of this jaded property gossip, the opinionated blogger who often writes in a poetry format flipped a deluxe duplex penthouse in New York City’s Greenwich Village on the market for $10,950,000 only a year after she bought it for $8,095,000. (So the stories go, American fashion icon Michael Kors recently had a wee look-see at the 3,200 square foot spread even though he already owns a West Village penthouse with a huge terrace.)

Now comes word down the celebrity real estate gossip grapevine via the fine folk at Zillow that Miz O’Donnell has hoisted her Midtown Manhattan pied-a-terre at The Platinum for $2.25 million. Miz O’Donnell acquired the 22nd floor two bedroom and 2.5 bathroom corner crib, as per property records, back in 2008 for $2,005,000.

Miz O’Donnell still owns a five-residence compound set right on the Hudson River in Nyack, NY that she acquired between 2001 and 2008 for a total of $8,605,000.
