The unapologetically ritzy and much tittered about Beverly Hills, Calif., mansion of Jazmin Johnson, an original cast member on “Married to Medicine: Los Angeles,” one of Bravo’s never-ending torrent of spin-off reality shows predicated on the high-drama relationships between rich and successful women, has popped up for sale with an asking price pushing up on $9.5 million. The fit-as-a-fiddle doctor’s wife and budding reality TV personality, an entrepreneur, fitness/lifestyle blogger and former bikini fitness competitor whose cast mates gossip about her exotic eating habits, has taken a lot of heat both on and off camera about her lavish home, which she shares with her husband, Santa Monica-based psychiatrist Dr. Gadson Johnson, who’s never appeared on the show.
Much to the continued chagrin of Johnson, cast mate Dr. Imani Walker, also a psychiatrist, once described the by-any-account ostentatious abode as looking like a “drug dealer’s house,” and there’s much consternation and puzzlement among cast members and viewers alike about how a psychiatrist, albeit one who looks more like a fitness model than a stereotypical physician, can afford such a costly home, not to mention a fleet of Rolls Royces. Whatever the source and state of their finances, the boldly conspicuous consumers seek a hefty profit on the mansion that tax records indicate was purchased by Dr. Johnson almost four years ago for exactly $6 million.
Fronted by lantern-topped columns between curlicued wrought iron fencing on a slightly less than quarter-acre parcel just outside the main gates of the garishly extravagant Beverly Park enclave, the nearly 10,000-square-foot behemoth is bedazzled with eight towering columns and elaborate roof detailing across its slightly angled front façade. Inside, there are a total of seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms over three floors dripping in a showy brand of opulence with glossy polished marble floors and more crystal chandeliers than a cat has lives.
Palatially embellished entertaining spaces include: a grandiose double-height foyer with a sweeping staircase and curvaceous second-floor gallery; a formal living room with a baronial carved stone fireplace surmounted by a huge flat-screen TV; and a red-walled dining room with another massive TV hung on one wall. The spacious and expensively applianced eat-in kitchen features faux-aged custom cabinets and imported Italian stone countertops, and the family room offers a second intricately carved stone fireplace and another gigantic television hung on the wall. All six of the guest bedrooms are en suite, while the master bedroom offers a sitting room with French doors to a private balcony and a bathroom slathered in gold-colored marble accented by gold-plated fixtures. Some of the other notable features of elevator-equipped manse include a marble-floored formal ballroom, and, no surprise given the homeowners’ obvious dedication to exercise, a gym and sauna.
Property records show the Johnsons own another home above the Sunset Strip, multi-level contemporary with jaw-dropping city views purchased not quite two years ago for $3.85 million and, after an extensive overhaul, flipped back on the market in July 2019 at nearly six million dollars. Featured on the current season of “Married to Medicine Los Angeles” — several of the women from the Atlanta version of the “Married to Medicine” franchise came to town and stayed in the house, the nearly 4,800-square-foot contemporary was re-listed earlier this year at $5.2 million but, after the price was chopped to $4.85 million, was taken off the market a couple of months ago.
