Trolling the open houses of the rich and famous, Defamer uncovers this gem: $2.7 million worth of Spanish Colonial "boring" currently owned by Law & Order: SVU's Mariska Hargitay.
Ms. Hargitay inherited her rockin' bod from parents Jayne Mansfield (the low-rent Marilyn Monroe) and Mickey Hargitay (the proto-Ahnold). She also got the house from pops - he built it for her in the early '80s, well before the ca$hmoney from SVU started rolling in.
And we've heard tell that the place is less than totally posh:
The only “swank” feature is the requisite bachelorette “speakers in the walls in every room” for those “girl’s night” parties - no Viking, no Sub-Zero, no pool, no fine finishes. Instead we’ve got “take your shoes off, new Berber carpet” signs and wallpaper printed to look like books in book cases and lamps with leopard-spot shades. What gives? Is this all hederitary fame amounts to these days? Kitchen appliances from Sears and lighting from and Frederick's? We can scarcely imagine the Nelson brothers' homes.
