YOUR MAMAS UPDATE: Okay babies, we smell a rat. First of all we found a listing for the house that had it priced at $5,350,000, which means that the current price of $4,295,000 is more than $1,000,000 less than Monsieur EeBear originally wanted for the house. This is not a new listing, it's a re-priced listing.
Secondly, from the pictures it is clear that Monsieur EeBear does not currently LIVE in this house. A source we contacted claims that the long haired hair maven has not lived in this house since 2002, PRIOR to the re-build/renovation. Property records do show that the tonsorial trimmer does own the property, but we hear he moved years ago. Someone named Joe-ZAY is hoping to make millions on his renovation project.
Your Mama does not have a clue as to where the tonsorial trimmer actually lives, but we'd love to know because Your Mama is nosy like that.
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: The listing agents for hairstylist to the stars José Eber have made it easy for Your Mama. Not only did they name the home owner in their description of the property on the MLS, they posted a comment on our little blog announcing that the hairdresser's Hollywood Hills contempo has hit the market at $4,295,000.
Now babies, before we begin, let Your Mama give y'all a lesson on how to say the long haired coiffure's name. It's Joe-ZAY Ee-BEAR. It helps if you use a pretend French accent. Say it with Your Mama children, Joe-ZAY Ee-BEAR.
Monsieur Eebear, who has touched, twirled and twisted the hair of just about every Hollywood hussy and diva from the 1980s including Farrah Fawcett, Cher, and Elizabeth Taylor, continues to be a force in Hollywood hairdos and hair-don't's. But his fame and influence seems to have ebbed among the young celebutards who prefer to have their locks cut and colored by younger and hipper hairdressers like reality television friendly Jonathan Antin and/or Jessica Simpson's hair bitch Ken Pavés (pronounced Pay-ves if you please or care).
According to property records, Monsieur Eebear bought this property in February of 1990 for $867,720, which was a lot of gawd-damn money in 1990 for a little fixer in the hills. Current information indicates that the house measures 3,387 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. It appears that Monsieur Eebear has done a fairly recent head to toe make over of the place since he purchased the vertically inspired house. There are gorgeous views of the Los Angeles all the way to the ocean (on a clear day, anyway) and the private drive is shared with just four other houses. Not only is the close to Sunset Boulevard location convenient to all the swanky shoppy-shops along Robertson, the end of the private drive location means a celebrity could unpack the groceries from the Range Rover without being pestered by the paps.
As of today, the listing agents have not included many photos of the house, so we really can't say if the floor plan is spacious or if the upgrades are tasteful. What we do know is that Monsieur Eebear, whose long, loooong hair falls down his back, is never seen without a cowboy or Australian bush style hat that is often laden with feathers, medallions or some other adornment. Can we expect the same sort of over the top interior appointments? Time will tell as the listing agent promises more glorious photos soon.
But more than anything, what Your Mama rather callously and cattily wants to know is if Monsieur Eebear has a full head of hair under his hat. Hmm.
