While I love me a nice ice cream, I find it hard to spend too much on a gourmet flavor when I’m just as happy eating a plain vanilla cone. It’s the curse of having a Neanderthal palate. If you’re someone like me who believes that a $6-$8 Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey is a tad too indulgent, then you are not the core audience for Byakuya. If you’re looking to blow over $6000 on ice cream, then this scoop’s for you!
Ellen DeGeneres And Portia de Rossi Bought A $70 Million Oceanfront Compound, Making Santa Barbara County Real Estate History
Two quite petite blond women have significantly upgraded their living conditions with the $70 million purchase of a 9,000 square ft, 5-bedroom, 8-bath home on 3.5 acres and an additional 6.6-acre vacant lot in Carpinteria, CA, marking the “priciest residential deal in Santa Barbara County history,” according to Dirt. The women, married “entertainers” Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, have no children and at this time, do not appear to have any plans to construct a gothic mansion on the property to house and educate orphaned children and teens with special powers. They do, however, reportedly have a lot of houseplants with special needs that weren’t being met at any of the couple’s other homes in the area, which include three “cottages” and a horse ranch in Montecito and an estate in Bel Air, presumably all with inadequate sun.
Newly minted wifey Nicola Peltz has cast off whatever cheap ass Zale’s shit Brooklyn Beckham put on her finger when he proposed and upgraded her engagement ring with a $2 million oval diamond ring set in platinum and a diamond-encrusted wedding band estimated at $90,000. According to Page Six, Nicola previewed her new ring set at last week’s Met Gala. Since then, she’d been posting mirror selfies where she effortlessly brings the ring into frame without being too showy about it. She’s a class act after all. Just ask anyone who doesn’t work for her!
If you have a spare $165 million burning a hole in your untraceable overseas bank account, I can think of no better use for it than buying a one-of-a-kind piece of Hollywood history. Dirt reports that Spelling Manor, Aaron and Candy Spellings’ shrine to 90s opulence, is on the market for the 3rd time since it was completed in 1990. Picture Tony and Carmella’s house from The Sopranos and double it exponentially until you get to 14 bedrooms, 21.5 baths, a 5,000 sq ft master suite, a bowling alley, a beauty salon, a screening room plus rooms dedicated to gift wrapping and flower-cutting. It’s one of the largest private homes in the entire world and was last purchased “sight unseen” by an anonymous Saudi Arabian buyer in 2019 for a record-breaking $120 million. My guess is that the buyer tacked on the extra $45 million to compensate for the pain and suffering they endured having spent the last 2 years roaming the halls looking for the front door.
Brace yourselves for the shock of the century, folks. Chrissy Teigen got shit on Twitter for posting something ridiculous. We’re at the point where we can start categorizing these events with alarming specificity. This time it’s another one of Chrissy’s I’m Still Relatable Even Though I’m Hella Rich, Right? Right? tweets. Here’s a quiz. How relatable was Chrissy’s tweet?
A: Relatable: I was going to order a bottle of wine then heard the price and laughed.
B: Slightly less relatable: I went to a restaurant and ordered a bottle of wine that turned out to be more expensive than I expected.
C: Not at all relatable: I got tricked into spending $13K on a bottle of wine by a waiter.
If you guessed C — Winner winner, chicken dinner (hopefully enjoyed with a nice bottle of cab priced under $30.)
