Real Housewives' Luxe Real Estate

  • Real Housewives' Real Estate

    Bravo’s The Real Housewives reality series has given us a peek inside the lives of wealthy women in various cities and affluent suburbs.  If you haven’t been following along, the series tracks the dramatic lives of well-connected socialites in Orange County, New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, D.C., Beverley Hills and Miami. Major drama ensues as they deal with shopping, marriage problems, cat fights and public mayhem. Luxury real estate is also a theme of the show, as episodes feature the opulent homes of the cast members, and some housewives (Jeana Keough, ex-housewife of Orange County) and their husbands (Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards’ hubby, Mauricio Umansky) work in real estate. Beyond the series, the real estate dealings of the housewives have made major headlines. Various housewives have faced threats of foreclosure (namely Lisa Wu Hartwell and Sheree Witfield of Atlanta, and Jeana Keogh and Alexis Bellino of the OC), tried to sell in a down market (Tamra Barney of OC) and some have even faced eviction (Lynn Curtin of the OC). Several housewives have their high-ticket pads on the market right now, either for sale or for rent. Take a look at a few of the reality stars' luxe listings. Photo Credit: Garry Knight

    Of course, Larsa’s husband – who collected six NBA Championship rings during his career - would have a basketball court. The home also has a playground for the four kids the couple have together (Larsa's known to fire her nannies), and a built-in grill. Photo Credit: Panton & Co. Realty

    There also seems to be a putting green in the yard.  According to Bravo’s website, Larsa, “a snarky Assyrian Lebanese beauty ... boasts that she’s successful at everything she does, including playing wife and mother to her four young kids.” For more information on her mansion, contact Barbara Panton (954-527-1948), or visit her company's website.
