According to recent news reports, Mayor Villaraigosa is throwing his football support to the Patriots while LA waits for a team. Meanwhile, Patriots all-star Tom Brady and his wife, Victoria's Secret all-star Gisele Bundchen, are ditching a pad in Boston and have big plans here in LA. Work is close to finished on the couple's new Brentwood Country Estates house, which is expected to be about 22,000 square feet with "eight bedrooms, a covered bridge, six-car garage, elaborate gardens, and a lagoon-shaped swimming pool," according to the Boston Globe. Back in Boston, our cousins at Curbed Boston have been keeping an eye on the Brady Bundchen's long-running attempt to sell their Back Bay penthouse. Most recently, the unit was relisted in October for $10.5 million (with $8,218.38 in monthly HOAs--who knew things could get so pricey in Beantown?).
