Upon another celebrity divorce, this time Russell Simmons and wife Kimora Lee Simmons, comes another must-see and must-shop tag sale.
The hip-hop mogul and his reality-TV star ex-wife opened up their recently sold New Jersey mansion yesterday for a massive, everything-must-go sale. Other offerings included everything from a $200,000 designer bed to a $20 doggie bed. The sale included items like a glass pumpkin that went for $40, a piggy bank festooned in red feathers for $25, and a bizarre Christmas ornament of a purple blowfish with glittery lipstick that went for $5.
So far, according to one media outlet on-site, “Shoppers’ jaws dropped when they spotted items such as a $12,000 pool table, a $12,000 Persian rug, a $20,000 pair of brass lion statues and two couches from the South Beach home of the late Gianni Versace that went for $7,500 each.”
Today was the second day of the family’s mega yard sale, drawing a massive crowd to their mansion, which they signed a contract to sell last month for $13.9 million.
The event was being shot for an episode of Kimora’s reality show, which sources said will air in November.
By the early afternoon, more than 100 cars were parked along tony Fox Hedge Road and a line stretched more than 40-people long outside the gate.
