  • I'm kinda excited about Rosie living in the neighborhood.

  • 6000 square feet? That may just be enough to fit her big ass.

    Where is this house along the "Southport Corridor"? I live over here and need to prepare myself for an onslaught!

  • Dear god, the interiors...the "pimp my sitting room" oyster-yellow tufted sofas. Where the heck does someone go to get a custom blue velour duvet? eww. And can we please have a moratorium against people--under the age of 70 and not living in a Gold Coast manse--painting rooms of their hours RED? Rosie...first order of business: redecorate.

  • house...

  • Between gwill and robertsalm we had a good laugh. Both Rosie and the current owners are feeling some serious burn...!
