We recently reported that Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of  Formula 1 racing mogul Bernie Ecclestone, purchased the late Aaron Spelling’s 57,000 square foot mega mansion dubbed “The Manor”. The grand estate was on the market since March of 2009 with a whopping $150 million price tag. Well, the home may have sold for almost half of that! It is being reported that Petra paid a “mere” $85 million for the home; though it’s not certain. I guess Candy wasn’t so hell bent on getting those 9 figures after all! The super high-end real estate market isn’t the greatest, so I guess she realized that $85 million is better than nothing. By the way, Petra first checked out the lavish $125 million Fleur de Lys estate and showed a lot of interest in it; I wonder what happened?

    Ha! I was only off by $10 million! While I won’t say she got a good deal, I do wonder if Candy was offered more before and declined. Whatever, she’s still wealthier than most.

      Why would anyone in their right mind decline more money?!

        Perhaps someone offered it early when the estate was just listed. I could easily see someone offering $100 million and her declining because she thought she could get more. With this home having been on the market as long as it has, I have no doubts that she had to compromise more than she wanted to. Wave the reported $85 million (probably cash) in her (or anyone’s face) and it’s a pretty good way to accept less than she originally planned.

    WHOMever, HOW MUCH ever, WHEN ever, WHY ever, EVER, EVER EVER……………the entire issue STILL makes my guts roil with pure disgust.

    I am eternally convinced that waaaaaaaaaay too many people with psychotic amounts of money like this are SO HOPELESSLY materially, egotistically, and WEALTH OB-and-POSSESSED that they would LITERALLY spend amounts like this on ANY ridiculous object they lusted after, EVEN IF they could spend the exact same amount to CURE CANCER.

    WHAT a world we live in…………(to be spoken with a EXACTING Bette Davis effect!
