YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Bikini model and boob-toob ack-tress Molly Sims has put her 1930s Spanish style casa in the hills above Hollywood on the market with an asking price of $2,999,000.
Property records show that Miss Sims plunked down $1,425,000 for her 3,043 square foot house on Hollywood Boulevard in November of 2003, which is just about the time the Sports Illustrated swim suit supermodel started to see some big tee-vee money from her regular role as the de-lovely Delinda Deline on Las Vegas, a program that Your Mama does not ever recall laying eyes on but does know co-starred easy on the eyes actor Josh Duhamel.
Listing information for Miss Sims’ digs reveals there are three bedrooms (four in a pinch and with some renovatin‘) and 3.5 bathrooms, a bed/bath ratio that pleases Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter immensely because what, really, could be more dee–luxe, dee–lightful and luckzhureeus than providing over night guests a private pooper in which to do their dirty bizness in, well, private?
It’s a well established and much published fact that Miss Sims uses celeb-friendly designer Kishani Perera of Bev Hills design firm Fuse I.D. to work over and whip her homes into sophisticated and eclectic spaces as polished and magazine ready as Miss Sims herself. Miss Perera and her team have successfully managed to find the slim space between High Hollywood Glam and Comfortably Livable by mixing and matching flea market finds with high priced fabrics and pedigreed pieces. Miss Sims’ residence appears chock full of objects and artworks that look like Miss Sims picked them out herself, which is what a good day-core should reflect…the home owner and not the decorator’s self-obsessed vision, right?
Anyhoo, while Your Mama could beef and whine about the supposed to be retro-chic wallpaper in the downstairs office/den that looks depressingly dated and we could happily complain about the deep shag rug that would be an absolute nightmare for our bossy housegurl Svetlana who would undoubtedly go berserk the first time that one of our long bodied bitches Linda and Beverly puked on the shag rug, we won’t.
That’s because, generally speaking and even though it’s not what we would do to our own home, Your Mama thinks this modest Mediterranean has been did up and done over in a glitzy yet understated and personal style befitting a famous philly like Miss Sims. While we’ve never seen it done before, we rather like the ebonized Saltillo tile floors (they’re shiny and Your Mama can’t help it, we like shiny things) and we note with glee that Miss Sims has actual books in her house…in more than one room. The Dr. Cooter quivers with envy over the gigantic wine fridge in the white on white kitchen, Your Mama adores a party size shower like has been installed in the garden view master bath, and because the sun scorches something fierce in Southern Caleefornia, we are deeply and sincerely appreciative all all the shaded patios and covered terraces. We love a little color on our skin as much as the next native Californian who was raised in a bathing suit on the beach, however, Your Mama does not care to tempt or invite skin cancer while laying around on the terrace sipping gin and tonics and flipping through the latest gossip glossies.
Records show Miss Sims also owns a modest house in a decidedly un-glam section of supah-swank East Hampton, NY where she has been seen swanning around all summer and showing up inexcusably late to parties thrown in her honor. Miss Sims, who purchased the house in May of 2000 for just $655,000, allowed an MTV Cribs camera crew into her Hamptons house. Our quick search across the interweb failed to produce a link to the video, but if one of the children comes up with it please be sure to let Your Mama know and we’ll add it…with credit to the helpful, of course.
Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter wish Miss Sims well wherever she lands and we congratulate Miss Perera on securing a client who appears keen on using her services over and over and over again.
