According to The L.A. Times, The Manor – sometimes called Spelling Manor, the largest home in Los Angeles – has sold for $120 million, a new L.A. County real estate record. Construction on The Manor began in 1988. It was home to Aaron Spelling, and was nicknamed Candyland, in honor of his wife Candy Spelling. He lived there with his – oh my god, do I even have to say it? It was Tori Spelling’s house back when she still had champagne kisses and caviar dreams. Which is a real 180 from what she’s got now, which is a silver spray painted-platter piled high with FINAL NOTICE letters.
According to WWD, somebody wants to buy Kylie Jenner’s makeup company Kylie Cosmetics, for more than half a billion dollars. Kris Jenner’s plastic surgeon should expect a call. Because there’s no way she didn’t shatter all the muscles in her face and neck from screaming after she calculated her momager cut of that deal.
I originally started this post with a joke explaining that you already know who Danielle Steel is if you’re a fan of reading about over-the-top wealthy family drama. But then I was like, Allison, please – anyone with eyes knows who Danielle Steel is. The number of people on Earth who haven’t seen the name STEEL embossed in gold on the spine of a jewel-toned book jacket could probably be counted on one hand. Her bestselling books are everywhere. According to Danielle Steel, there’s a very good reason why, and it has to do with her only sleeping a maximum of four hours a day. Funny, a rich woman who eschews sleep in exchange for making loads of money totally sounds like a Danielle Steel character.
The Beyhive got their stingers in a twist when their Google alerts went all dingy this week with the vicious claim that Ariana Grande got paid twice as much as their leader Beyonce to headline Coachella. I mean, it makes sense, since Ariana had the best four members of NSYNC in her Coachella show, and Beyonce didn’t even TRY to get O-Town for hers. But because this is not a belated April Fool’s Day prank, and anyone on their meds would know that we are living in real life world and not The Upside Down, of course there is no way in Hell, on God’s Green Earth, or while Beyonce is still living and breathing (and probably into the Afterlife, who are we kidding) that type of wage gap disparity would actually happen to the Queen of the Honey
Venom is no doubt crying salty, poisonous tears today, because it’s no longer the creepy-faced film villain that is at the top of the box office. Deadline reports that Venom was beaten at the box office by Halloween, who took home an insane amount of money for a movie about a guy in a dirty William Shatner mask who doesn’t say much.
For the past week, Nicki Minaj has been been publicly feuding with Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner. That strategy hasn’t exactly been paying off for Nicki, as it was recently announced that the North American leg of her NickiHndrxx Tour got canceled, possibly due to low ticket sales. But that’s not to say that publicly dragging a Kardashian husband isn’t a lucky dice roll for everyone who tries it. Last fall, Taylor Swift repeatedly took aim at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on her album Reputation. Taylor then took Reputation on tour in May, and almost four months in, Billboard is reporting that it’s now the highest-grossing US tour by a woman.
