YOUR MAMAS UPDATE: The NY Post reports that TomKat and Kitten are moving into a new house in Los Angeles...a compound no less. Seems the owner of house on Alpine Drive in Beverly Hills that The Cruiser has long rented (yes, rented) is wanting to sell the property. Your Mama puts some feelers out to see if we could catch wind of anything about their West Coast wheeling and dealing.
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Your Mama wanted to leave the children with another tidbit before we get on with our busy day. Remember, we'll be back with another rock star residence later today.
Ev-er-ee-bodee has surely heard the deafening rumor that TomKat is in the process of snagging a large apartment at The Dakota, one of New York's most famous and exclusive buildings. Word on the street is that they are buying composer Leonard Bernstein's old apartment which has been on the market for $25,500,000. Read all about it and see the photos and floor plan over at the sassy Radar Online.
The Bernstein apartment is a likely bet, but there is another large, fourth floor apartment that has been on the market that could also be a contender.
Oddly enough Your Mama was actually in the Bernstein apartment many years ago before the the family sold it to the current owners. Long story, and not much to report other than the place is glorious with gargantuan rooms and more fireplaces than fingers on your left hand.
