There is some news from Phaedra’s old neighborhood. I’ve become friendly with a few people in her neighborhood over the years and one of them informed me that Phaedra’s house finally sold. Phaedra moved into the neighborhood in April of 2013 when she purchased the house in her own name for $849,000. It sold last month for $950,00 after several price drops totally almost $250,000. It was on the market for a full year. After the initial unwise decision to do an open house before doing any painting or improvements, several thousand dollars worth of sprucing up the finally got a buyer.
Here is another fun fact. One of my friends from the neighborhood, moved off the cul-de-sac a bit ago. She moved just a hop skip and a jump away to what she thought would be a neighborhood free of reality show drama. She recently settled into the new house after construction and discovered that one of her new neighbors is Cardi B. Last Sunday she emailed to say that Cardi B. and her man are breeding pit bulls. Apparently, there is a shortage of pit bulls? Seriously. Why breed pitbulls when the shelters are over run with them. On Sunday, mama and daddy pitbull got loose and were running the streets. Somehow the two pitbulls managed to stop traffic on the street causing a traffic jam and general pandemonium. My friend is terrible about picking neighbors. She’s already considering moving. Again.
