Candy Spelling, mother to actress Tori Spelling, has sold her expensive home to a 22-year-old, reports E Online.
The home, which is the most expensive home on the U.S. market, was put for sale two years ago by Spelling for $150 million. The 4.7 acre Holmby Hills home belonged to her and late husband, Aaron Spelling, the producer of 90210.
Now, the home is apparently being sold to a 22-year-old heiress of a British billionaire. Yes, she’s 22, and yes, that’s ridiculous.
Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of billionaire racing boss Bernie Ecclestone, is up for the pad – and it’s going to cost her. The place has its own gift-wrapping room, for heavens sake.
As for Spelling, she has downsized to a $35 million penthouse in Century City. Rough life.
Today Amazon.com put Lady Gaga’s new album ‘Born This Way’ on sale for a discounted price of 99 cents, for the second time this week.
The announcement came in an early-morning tweet in which the online retailer said: “We’re doing it again and this time we’re ready. Get @ladygaga’s Born This Way album for $0.99 today,” with a link to the Amazon sale page.
The reference to being “ready” refers to the many delays and server problems consumers experienced on Monday, when the online store basically crashed due to overwhelmingly high demands. People love Gaga, and they love a bargain even more.
In a press release, Craig Pape, Director of Music for Amazon, said, “Clearly customers are really excited for Lady Gaga’s new album – we saw extraordinary response to Monday’s promotion – far above what we expected – she definitely melted some servers. So we’re doing it again, and this time we’re ready.”
I think this promotion is a great idea. It not only promotes her album and increases sales, but it also makes up for the crappy technical service fans experienced on monday. I already bought the album, but I’m really debating on ordering a second one just because I can.
Radar Online is reporting that the sale of Chelsea Handler’s ‘sex tape’ has been halted due to lack of interest.
Individuals in possession of Handler’s sex tape have supposedly just given up, partially due to a difficult business partner within the deal, and partially because the video just wasn’t fetching the kind of dough they were after. The salesmen were looking for a 6-figure payout for the footage.
Unsurprisingly, the tape was one that the attention-seeking Handler shot herself and submitted to comedy clubs along with her standup routine. Though she’s not shy about the tape, Handler has not signed off on its sale, adding another legal dimension that possibly contributed to the ending of the deal.
“Thanks for ruining my surprise Christmas gift to my staff…it was made as a joke,” Handler said in response to the tape on her evening talk show, Chelsea Lately.”I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club, because I’m a comedienne, and I’ve been showing it at birthday parties for f**king years!”
We can see how that may be a power play in a gender-skewed career like comedy, but it still disappoints us that Handler flashed her T and A to get some stage time. Female comics shouldn’t have to use their vajayjays to get exposure! Thank god we have classy funny ladies like Tina Fey to counteract the skankitude.
The iconic recording studios in northwest London, where The Beatles recorded many of their songs, are being offered to bidders because the label’s owners, company Terra Firma, are looking to reduce the company’s debts.
The sale of the studios, located in St. John’s Wood, could reportedly raise tens of millions of pounds.
