In case any of y’all missed it, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos sold their duplex penthouse atop a celeb-approved boutique building in New York’s City’s SoHo ‘hood for $20 million to real estate mogul Alex Adjmi. Not bad considering they paid $9.5 million for the nearly 6,800-square-foot spread in 2005. So the Big Apple real estate rumors go they dropped a pretty penny on a newly renovated townhouse just off Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side.
Your Mama wonders if supermodel turned reality tv mogul Heidi Klum and/or bootylicious Jennifer Lopez went for a look see at the Ripa-Consuelos penthouse. Miz Klum, who recently sold a mansion in L.A. for $24 million, is said to have some interest in Jon Bon Jovi’s massive penthouse duplex in SoHo and Miz Lopez, who owns a compound in the guard-gated Hidden Hills enclave in L.A.’s western suburbs, been repeatedly spotted recently out peeping $20+ million properties with beau-hunky “Million Dollar Listing” agent Fredrik Ekland. She’s said to have had a poke around an unlisted condo at the much-ballyhooed Walker Tower in Chelsea, a six-story townhouse on West 22nd Street and another condo at the swanky Chelsea Enclave.
