The Life Of The Rich And Famous Bruce Makowsky, Handbag Mogul

At one time it seemed that QVC had become B. Makowsky handbags all the time. Not so much anymore, but don’t feel sorry for Bruce.

The Wall Street Journal did a story Friday about Makowsky’s hood, which is the gated community of Beverly Park. The paper describes it as “one of the most exclusive, expensive places in Los Angeles, a land of exclusive, expensive places.”

There article describes Makowsky as a “handbag mogul and real-estate developer,” and has a photo of one of his palatial houses, which is described as an investment property.

He paid $13.45 million for it and is selling it for $25 million.

But wait, Makowsky has a second home in Beverly Park, one he actually lives in. It’s a Tuscan-style place.

Here is what he told The Journal about that cozy shack:

I could afford to live anywhere I want,” says Mr. Makowsky, who paid $22.6 million for his nine-bedroom, 15-bathroom home in 2010, according to public records. “This is a little slice of heaven.” He estimates his property, which he’s extensively renovated, is worth $100 million today.

So who else lives in this LA neighborhood? Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy, Sylvester Stallone and Mark Wahlberg, to name a few folks.

    Wow is all I have to say on that and good for him! Never found his bags worth buying myself, but, apparently others did!

    Looks like JTV hired another new host?

    A Sheree Henry has been added to the “Meet the Hosts” page. Was she a JTV host from the past?

    This is odd considering Nikki S. and Rebecca haven’t been added to the “Meet the Hosts” page and they’ve been there for over 2 months.

    Are you gonna post something on this, Linda?

    We haven’t heard from you in a bit, Miss Moss, and hope all is well.
