Celebrity Real Estate: Billy Bush, Donatella Arpaia, Christie Brinkley
Billy Bush Lists NYC Townhouse
The fallout continues for Billy Bush. After an “Access Hollywood” tape was released showing the new “Today” co-host egging on Donald Trump about groping women, Bush lost his job. Now he’s giving up his NYC townhouse for which he had big plans to coincide with his big job.
Bush has just listed the Chelsea residence for $8.25 million. Bush bought the 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom townhouse and was going to renovate it, but now there’s no reason to go ahead. The 7,200-square-foot townhouse was formerly an apartment complex but Bush—had he stayed on at NBC—was going to transform it back into a single-family home.
Iron Chef Donatella Digs Into New NYC Condo
Culinary mogul Donatella Arpaia has become a major player in the NYC restaurant world (Mia Dona, Anthos, kefi and EOS) and as a Food Network star. Now the 40-something entrepreneur has a new Manhattan condo, fitted with a top-of-the-line kitchen.
Arpaia and her cardiac surgeon husband, Allan Stewart, have just purchased a $2.9 million apartment along Fifth Avenue. The One Museum Mile condo sits above the Museum for African Art and has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and, of course, a ton of counter space.
East-End Girl Lists Her White-Columned House
Christie Brinkley will forever be known as the “Uptown Girl,” after her ex-husband Billy Joel’s famous song about her. But she really is an East End of Long Island girl. After decades of home ownership in the Hampton, Brinkley now has two mega-properties up for sale.
The latest is a $25 million estate in Sag Harbor. The historic 1843-era home sits on 4.5 acres with 330 feet of beach frontage on Sag Harbor Bay. The listing comes just months after Brinkley listed her Bridgehampton Estate, Tower Hill, for $29.5 million. With her kids in college now, the Uptown Girl is the Empty Nester Mom.
