The Real Estalker Strikes Again! (Just before collapsing from the vapors or something). Even though Bel Air estate Fleur de Lys has been usurped from its title as Most Expensive Property for Sale in the US this week by William Randolph Hearst's old manse, The Real Estalker has the skinny on the compound. Estalky (that's our pet name for him/her) speculates that a house that big costs a boatload of money to run, so the sensible Suzanne doesn't want to squander her considerable divorce settlement on cheap Mexican labor tending the grounds. So who's willing to pony up the $125 million asking price (or thereabouts)? "Your Mama does not know who or what sort of person would actually buy a house like Fleur De Lys, but we have been told by someone who would know that the house has been looked at by potentates, foreign governments, a Russian oligarch or two, and even a few stupendously rich Americans." Is that stupidly or stupendously rich? Does it even matter? Their cash will buy them "12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, Italian marble walls, French limestone floors, gold-embossed leather wall coverings, gold leaf crown moldings, a vast ballroom, two kitchens, and a 50-seat screening room, natch. Also on the grounds, a pool house with kitchen, massage room, gym, a three bedroom manager's house, staff quarters for ten, a nine-care garage, and a three-quarter mile jogging track." Oh, and a trampoline right in back of the house on the lawn.
