YOUR MAMAS NOTES: This morning in the LA Times Hot Properties column, celebrity real estate diva Ruth Ryon discussed the tremendous neo-Georgian style brick pile that was recently sold by hockey legend Wayne Gretzky to baseball great Lenny Dykstra.
If Your Mama is being honest, and we always are, we don't know who the Wayne Gretzky or Lenny Dykstra is. We understand the unfortunately named Mister Dykstra is a baseball person, a sport we know little about, and we understand that Mister Gretzky is a hockey person, a savage and violent seeming sport we know zip about.
And you know what, late on Sunday night we simply can't be bothered to learn any more about these two clearly very rich sports figures.
The monster mansion, which includes two guest houses and a carriage house, is so far from anything that Your Mama can even comprehend, were not even going to make sassy and dishy commentary. Rather we're gong to have a moment of silence while y'all peruse the insanely traditional decor, the impressively intricate plaster work and moldings, and the expansive grounds.
Have fun kids.
