Fanny a nice Jewish girl with impeccable taste!
Fanny Brice's former home - which the legendary Ziegfeld Follies star resided in from the day it was constructed (1938) until the year she passed to spirit (1951) - is on the market for a whopping $65 million smackeroos.
Ms. Brice kicked-up quite a few routines over the years to be able to wrangle that financial maneuver, eh?
If you recall, songbird Barbra Streisand portrayed the life of the stage-hall Queen in the feature film biopic "Funny Girl".
A young lady I met years ago, was Ms. Brice's niece, who boasted that a few of the prized possessions in her New York City apartment were once-owed by the celebrated DIVA.
At that time, she confided some inside scoop.
Nick Arnstein (Brice's first husband) did have ties with the "mob"" as alleged in the big-budget flick.
The estate (a Hollywood Regency-style mansion) was rebuilt and went through extensive renovations about five years ago.
There is a guest-house (naturally), swimming pool, poolside gym, and a tennis court (that lights up in the twilight hours).
There are eight bedrooms and fourteen (!) bathrooms in the sprawling 17,000 square-foot property.
Richard King of King World Productions is the current owner who purchased the snazzy showcase in 2001 for $15 million.
I'll be over for open house, Rick!
