The Real Estate Tale of Amar’e Stoudemire: Part I

November 29, 2011
The Real Estate Tale of Amar’e Stoudemire: Part I

BUYER: Amar’e Stoudemire LOCATION: Southwest Ranches, FL PRICE: $3,700,000 SIZE: 14,555 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms (total) YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Before any of y’all get to sassin’ do hear this: Your Mama well knows we are tardy to this here celebrity property party. None-the-less, we think can offer, in our shamelessly and shamefully wind-baggish two-part series, a more complete picture of the real estate picture of New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire who has been on a bone fide real estate tear this year that includes the recent purchase of a $3,700,000 (mc)mansion in the quasi-rural suburbs between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, FL. In early November 2011 there was bit of business in the New York Post about professional basketballer Amar’e Stoudemire putting the squeeze on his pocketbook due (in part, so goes the report) to the recent ( and now tentatively ended ) NBA lock-out, an event Your Mama does not know a damn thing about other than it means the 2011-12 season has been on hold while the players and the owners duke it out in mediation, adjudication, arbitration or whatever it is people do in big time labor disputes. It should surprise few that Your Mama had never heard of Amar’e Stoudemire–’tis entirely true–and we certainly hadn’t (and haven’t) an iota why such a daring and unexpectedly placed apostrophe dissevers his name. We took a half-hearted moment to peruse the piece in the Post and quickly scampered along without giving neither his name nor his financial matters another thought. A few weeks later along came gossip juggernaut TMZ who dropped a humid real estate nugget about this Amar’e Stoudemire person splashing out $3,700,000 to purchase a prodigious mansion in some place called Southwest Ranches, FL. That seemed to Your Mama like a pretty big purchase price for a place in sub-prime mortgage ravaged Florida that we’ve never heard of before. Our interest piqued and prodded we did some research on Mister Stoudemire that included a look-see at his recent real estate activities, which, as it turns out, have been prolific if quite costly for the highly-compensated professional dribbler. With all due respect for our scuttle butting compadres at TMZ , we discovered Mister Stoudemire’s real real estate story isn’t only about the gigantic, garish and architecturally suspicious (mc)mansion he bought in Southwest Ranches, FL for $3,700,000 but rather the several millions of dollars he’s lost on the significant number of other properties he’s recently dumped from his once-considerable property portfolio. Before we delve in to that bit of real estate bidness, let’s do the right thing and cover our celebrity real estate bases–or goal posts or whatever they have in basketball–and quickly educate the less athletically inclined puppies about just who this unusually named Amar’e Stoudemire person is and why he qualifies to be included in our (admittedly not very exclusive) celebrity real estate sights. Besides tennis and curling, as all the children know, Your Mama doesn’t know a solitary thing about sports, partick the golden triad of organized, American-style professional athletics: football, baseball and basketball. Having no recognition, recollection and/or knowledge whatsoever of just what makes Amar’e Stoudemire sports-world famous we picked up our Princess phone and dialed up our ball crazy b.f.f. Fiona Trambeau who, after shaking of her mid-day boozy-wooze with a few gargled shrieks, informed us Mister Stoudemire is a “quite young, sensationally strapping and deliciously tatted up cup of steaming hot chocolate who can handle [my] her basketballs at any time and at any place of his choosing.” She implored Your Mama, in fact, to post her mobile phone number here so Mister Stoudemire could contact her directly and–natch–we told her we would but only so as to get her to shut her lascivious trap and move on to the meat of the matter, so to speak. Of course, we have no intention of posting Miss Trambeau’s ring-a-ling digits. Your Mama could not in a thousand years subject just any curious person who might make an impromptu call to the often agitated, always saucy (and usually sauced up) Fiona Trambeau. Our Fiona would probably pee with glee were Mister Stoudemire to actually ring her telephone bell but–trust chickens–that crafty beehawtch would figure out a way to transmit mortal violence through the phone wires were just any ol’ person who isn’t Mister Stoudemaire to call because they thought it would be cute to chat up Fiona Trambeau. Besides, she’ll never read this. Fiona does do celebrities but she absolutely does not do celebrity real estate, so she’ll never know. She’s probably already forget she asked us to post the damn number anyways. Between a lathered up Fiona Trambeau and a few easily accessed articles on the interweb, we did finally learn all sorts of things including that Mister Stoudemire was a late bloomer to basketball. He only started passing and shooting in organized leagues at age 14. He took to the sport elementally and advanced quickly to become one of the best high-school ball players in all of the state of Florida. It’s not clear to Your Mama if Mister Stoudemire ever finished college or even matriculated and, honestly, either way it’s irrelevant to our tale of real estate highs and lows. What we did confirm is that in 2002, when just a young but tall ball player of 19 or 20 years old, Mister Stoudemire was drafted by the Phoenix Suns for whom he pounded the hardwoods to great acclaim and award with his hard and powerful 6’10″ frame until sometime in 2010. At that point, in early 2010, the accomplished ball player signed the necessary papers to switch his professional affiliations over to the New York Knicks who, according to some reports , were so hot and bothered to sign the then 27 year old 5-time All-Star player they agreed to pony up just shy of $100,000,000 over the course a five year contract. One hundred million dollars, puppies, and that’s not counting the additional multi-millions he can easily rake in each year from endorsement deals and the many more potential millions from his outside-basketball business endeavors that include a record label ( Hypocalypto ) and a recent assist to fashion designer Rachel Roy to create a limited line of ladies clothing described as ” court side apparel for the fashion-forward female .” Now children, Your Mama don’t know a perspiring glass of swate tay from a god damn tater tot but we do know enough about the business of women’s garmentry to make the uneducated judgement that Rachel Roy knows a thing or two about how to dress a gal on the go with a yen for clean-lined sophistication and a modest budget. However, children, in our itty-bitty pea brain, that edging-on-wanton description of the Roy/Stoudemire clothing collaboration describes something rather more dire sounding, an habiliment short on yardage and probably a little bit (too) tight and/or one-sleeved, something that aches to be worn with either a pair of sky-high porn pumps with girlish ankle-socks or some sort of faux-sporty wedge-heeled sneaker-style situation that makes a twisted mockery of both the high heel and the hard working athletic shoe. Anyhoodles poodles, in addition to spending a few million for a new (mc)mansion in Southwest Florida, Mister Stoudemire has recently divested himself of a number of other properties at considerable financial loss, a magnificent sell-off that may (or may not) have something to do with budget concerns. Simmer down, buckaroos. We’re not saying Mister Stoudemire’s broke or anything like that. We certainly ain’t privy to the particulars of Mister Stoudemire’s pocketbook and we make no claims as to his net worth, income and other cash flow, complete list of assets and/or cash reserves (or lack thereof). We’re just saying there sometimes comes a time in a very young and filthy rich man’s life–maybe a time like when an all-but-ruined 2011 season could, by his own account, keep about twenty million George Washingtons from walking their way into his coffers–when it’s prudent and wise to prune the property tree to ease up on the amount of dough required to maintain, make the mortgages and pay the rent on more than half a dozen high-priced properties on both coasts and in between. At one point in the not so distant past, before he acquired the (pseudo-)palatial pile in Southwest Ranches (FL), the property portfolio of the now New York-based power forward and center ballooned with a leased a pied-a-terre in a Donald Trump-developed complex in White Plains, NY (near where the Knicks training grounds are located), a pricy penthouse in downtown Manhattan (NY), and a house in the Hollywood Hills (CA). He also owned a sexed-up penthouse in Miami Beach plus a pair of adjacent condos in a fancy building in Phoenix, AZ as well as three high-priced and high-maintenance single-family (mc)mansions, also in Phoenix. Before we get Mister Stoudemire’s portfolio thinning, let’s first take a brief spin through Mister Stoudemire’s most recent real estate acquisition, the aforementioned mansion in Southwest Ranches, FL he picked up last month for, as per property records and previous reports, $3,700,000. A quick consult with our high-tech atlas shows this Southwest Ranches place is 35 miles northwest of South Beach, 25 miles or so southwest of the beaches of Fort Lauderdale and just a few short miles from where Flahreeduh’s Escalade-saturated suburban civilization turns to the swampy, alligator-infested Everglades. Listing information for sprawling single-story mcmansion shows it sits on 2.33 gated and landscaped acres in the Landmark Ranch Estates enclave, measures in at a considerable 14,555 square feet and includes a total of 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. A dead-straight pavered driveway leads from the street to a perfectly harrowing porte cochere held aloft by six round columns and bizarrely topped by a petite cupola. Etched glass front doors open to a marble-floored foyer that steps down to the formal living room complete with fireplace, built-in bar area, and a swimming pool view from a wall of towering windows. A short corridor off the living room opens to a library, small home office, 4-car garage and the master suite. A butler’s pantry connects the formal dining room to the family quarters, a large laundry room and the colossal kitchen complete with commercial-grade appliances and more faux-antiqued, totally custom, no doubt shockingly expensive, eggshell-colored cabinetry adorned with copious corbels and other carved details than we’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing in one kitchen at one time. A door in the kitchen leads directly into another attached 4-car garage and a wide snack counter separates the kitchen itself from an approximately 800-square foot family room/breakfast area. The adjacent state-of-the-art home theater done up by the sellers–a man who made some of his money selling aggressively banal “art” on cruise ships–like a god damn bordello with blood red shag carpeting, red and black patterned fabric-covered walls, carved wood pilasters and nine jet black recliner-style theater seats with built-in cup holders. We get the desire for decorative drama and a spot of cliché Hollywood glamor in a home movie theater, but lowerd have mercy, no. Three family bedrooms pinwheel around a playroom space and share three bathrooms in a separate wing off the kitchen/family room complex. The master suite occupies it’s own private wing at the opposite end of the house and includes a large bedroom and sitting area with built-in entertainment center, a wall of windows and French doors that open to a covered veranda, two bedroom-sized walk-in closets, a separate exercise room, and a super-sized beige marble bathroom with twin vanities, his and her enclosed crapper cubicles–hers has a bee-day too–and a jetted soaking tub for two and separate

Is Frances Bean Cobain Engaged?

October 26, 2011

At just 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, shocked the fashion world with a series of very grown up photographs this summer. Now there are reports she’s engaged … to a guy who looks a lot like her father. According to OC Weekly , Frances has been dating The Rambles’ lead singer, Isaiah Silva, for more than a year, and changed their relationship status on Facebook to engaged a few weeks ago. While the paper notes the couple recently removed the status, they allude to their engagement in online posts, which can be viewed here . In one post Frances writes: “Getting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world.” OC Weekly also points out that Silva shares a remarkable resemblance to Frances’ father Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994. It’s a little weird, right? If the couple are in fact engaged, we can’t wait to hear what Frances’ mother Courtney Love has to say about it. Continued here: Is Frances Bean Cobain Engaged?

City of Beverly Hills

October 24, 2011
City of Beverly Hills

Some Info About Beverly Hills: Beverly Hills is an affluent city in the western part of Los Angeles County, California , United States . Beverly Hills and the neighboring city of West Hollywood are together entirely surrounded by the city of Los Angeles . The area’s “ Platinum Triangle ” of affluent neighborhoods is formed by Beverly Hills and the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Bel Air and Holmby Hills . The population was 33,784 as of the 2000 census. Beverly Hills is home to Hollywood celebrities, and many corporate executives and numerous other wealthy individuals and families. Beverly Hills is bordered on the north by Bel-Air and the Santa Monica Mountains , on the east by West Hollywood, the Carthay neighborhood of Los Angeles, and the Fairfax District of Los Angeles, and on the south by the Beverlywood . In 2007, Coldwell Banker lists Beverly Hills as the most expensive housing market (second year in a row) in the United States, with a median home price of over $2.2 million. [3] These homes range from the extravagant and luxurious in size, to the more elegant and modern homes, and then to the many small duplex rental units and detached homes with less than 2,000 sq ft (185 sq meters). Geography Beverly Hills is nearly entirely surrounded by the city of Los Angeles, sharing only a portion of its eastern border, primarily along Doheny Drive, with West Hollywood . The precise limits of Beverly Hills are complex, and therefore hard to describe; however, the city limits can be roughly described as the area surrounded by the Los Angeles Country Club and Century Park Drive to the Southwest, Whitworth Drive to the South, variously Doheny Drive/Robertson Blvd/San Vicente Blvd to the East, and the Hollywood Hills to the North. Major east-west thoroughfares in Beverly Hills include Wilshire Boulevard , Santa Monica Boulevard , and Sunset Boulevard . Shopping is prevalent along Beverly Drive and the world-famous Rodeo Drive . Coldwater Canyon Drive is the main road out of Beverly Hills to the north into the San Fernando Valley . Beverly Drive and Roberston Blvd exit to the south into the city of Los Angeles. In spite of the city’s name, most residents live in the “flats” of Beverly Hills, a relatively flat land that includes all of Beverly Hills south of Sunset Blvd. The homes in the hills north of Sunset Boulevard have a much higher value than average homes in the rest of Beverly Hills, and the most expensive homes in Beverly Hills are all in the hills. Santa Monica Boulevard divides the “flats” into two areas, locally known as “North or South of the tracks,” referring to the train tracks that were once used by the old Pacific Electric streetcar line that traversed Beverly Hills along Santa Monica Blvd. Homes south of Wilshire have more urban square and rectangular lots, generally smaller than those to the north. There are also more apartment buildings south of Wilshire Blvd than anywhere else in Beverly Hills, and the average home value south of Wilshire is the lowest in Beverly Hills. Nearly all businesses and government offices in Beverly Hills are located south of Santa Monica Boulevard, two notable exceptions being the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Beverly Hilton Hotel . Just outside the city limits to the west lies the Los Angeles Country Club . Other locations commonly associated with Beverly Hills include the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the Beverly Center , just outside city limits to the east. Demographics As of the 2000 census , there were 33,784 people. The racial makeup of the city was 85.1% White , 7.10% Asian , 1.80% African American , 1.50% from other races , 0.10% Native American and 4.60% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race. [1] Like the rest of Los Angeles County, Beverly Hills is home to a large Persian / Iranian community. According to a 2006 NPR article, Iranians represent 20% of the city’s population and 40% of the students in its schools. [17] This estimate is not immediately evident in Census Bureau data as the Census Bureau defines the “White” race category as including “people having origins in any of the original peoples of .. the Middle East ..” [18] In the city the population was spread out with 20.0% under the age of 18, 6.3% from 18 to 24, 29.3% from 25 to 44, 26.8% from 45 to 64, and 17.6% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age for the city was 41 years old. [1] There were 15,035 households out of which 24.4% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 51.8% were married couples living together, 8.1% had a female householder with no husband present, and 31.0% were non-families. The average household size was 2.24 and the average family size was 3.02. Local government The Beverly Hills City Hall, built in 1932, was featured prominently in the Beverly Hills Cop films Beverly Hills Civic Center Beverly Hills Police being inspected in the late 1930s Of the 21,426 registered voters in Beverly Hills; approximately 50.3% are Democrats and 25.9% are Republicans . The remaining 23.8% are Independents or are registered with one of the many smaller political parties, like the Green Party or the Libertarian Party . The heavy Democratic advantage makes Beverly Hills one of the more liberal cities in Southern California. In 2004, John Kerry won 62% of the vote compared to 37% for George W. Bush . In the 2006 state governor election, Arnold Schwarzenegger got nearly 45% of the vote but won a second term by a state-wide majority, while Democratic opponent Phil Angelides had just over 54%. Beverly Hills is a general law city governed by a five-member City Council including the mayor and vice mayor. City Council hires a city manager to carry out policies and serve as executive officer. Every odd-numbered year either two or three members are elected by the people to serve a four-year term. Each March the City Council meets and chooses one of its members as mayor and one as vice-mayor. Jimmy Delshad is mayor and Barry Brucker is vice mayor. Jeff Kolin is city manager. The other three city council members are Nancy Krasne, Dr. William Brien and John Mirisch. In city council meetings, a few celebrities have shown up to speak on local political issues. The Beverly Hills Police Department and the Beverly Hills Fire Department serve as emergency response for the city. BHFD has the privilege of being distinguished as “Class 1″ in fire protection by an insurance industry rating service.

Federally, Beverly Hills is located in California’s 30th congressional district , which has a Cook PVI of D +20 [21] and is represented by Democrat Henry Waxman . The United States Postal Service operates the Beverly Hills Post Office at 325 North Maple Drive, [22] the Crescent Post Office at 323 North Crescent Drive, [23] the Beverly Post Office at 312 South Beverly Drive, [24] and the Eastgate Post Office at 8383 Wilshire Boulevard. [25] [26] The Beverly Hills Post Office received listing in the National Register of Historic Places on January 11, 1985. [27] Economy The former Hilton Hotels Corporation headquarters in Beverly Hills Beverly Hills is home to one Fortune 500 company, Live Nation Entertainment , as well as the private equity firm Platinum Equity . The Los Angeles-area offices of Aeroflot and El Al are in Beverly Hills. [28] [29] At one point Hilton Hotels Corporation had its corporate headquarters in Beverly Hills. Originally GeoCities (at first Beverly Hills Internet) was headquartered at 9401 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. [30] Underneath the city is the large and still-productive Beverly Hills Oil Field , serviced by four urban drilling islands which drill diagonally into the earth underneath the city. The most notorious of these drilling islands occasioned a 2003 lawsuit representing former attendees of Beverly Hills High School, approximately 280 of which had suffered from cancers allegedly tied to the drilling operations.

Other Beverly Hills private schools include Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy, Emanuel Academy of Beverly Hills, and Page Private School. Marymount High School in nearby Westwood , across from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), is in close proximity to Beverly Hills.
