Frank Sinatra’s Villa Maggio getaway takes in panoramic views from its perch above the Coachella Valley. The Palm Desert retreat includes three houses, a swimming pool, a tennis court and a helipad for quick trips to or from Hollywood. The 7.5-acre site has room to park 24 vehicles — that should allow enough guests for some swinging parties.
No word on whether you get to keep any of the AMAZINGLY kitsch decor, but whoever owns it now is holding tough to that Sinatra legacy and why not? You know that’s why you bought it. But magazines, photos on walls and lots of fun over the top baroque art.
6,428 square feet, nine bedrooms, 13 bathrooms
Five-bedroom main house, guesthouse, two-bedroom pool house, two saunas, nine fireplaces, art studio, bar, home theater, outdoor dance floor, recreation room

I was gaga for Tavi Gevinson when she was just a 14 year old style blogger at home with her parents in Chicago. And then when she got the attention of people like Miuccia Prada and was getting free clothes to pattern clash the hell out of her funky unique style. Then she hit the big time and went to the Dior Couture show in Paris, which ended up a mess because she wore a high hat and blocked the view of actual editors and.. ugh… it was a mess. Forget about that. She redeemed herself as a great judge on Project Runway.
But you gather than in her short 20 year life, she’s had a lot happen. She has since starred on Broadway in “The Crucible,” and was overheard at a Coach show last week telling pals she’s penning the new tome.
“It will be about her experiences working on plays and her life here in New York,” an insider said. But “she has not finished it or tried to sell it yet.”
She also appears in the new Sundance movie “Person to Person.”
Btw, Tavi also made this delightful piece of New York Times #NewWayof Seeing series where she talks to a few artists about how technology changes how we appreciate art.

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk only have eyes for each another!
Cooper and a visibly pregnant Shayk went on a romantic picnic together in Malibu, California, on Sunday, where they were snapped holding hands on the beach. Cooper, 42, put his long locks in a half bun and carried his boots, as 31-year-old Shayk carried their picnic basket and dressed comfortably in black leggings.
An eyewitness tells said the couple stayed for over an hour on the beach, eating salad and sharing a water bottle. “Irina was happy, looked beautiful makeup-free and was glowing,” the eyewitness says. “Bradley’s mood was pretty relaxed. [He] took off his shirt at one point after lunch while they relaxed on the beach.”
To put it bluntly, Elle King was on another level at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
On Monday, the singer revealed she was “accidentally high AF” during music’s biggest night.
“Note to self, don’t eat a bunch of pot muffins before the Grammys red carpet,” King, 27, wrote on Instagram along with a screenshot of herself during a red carpet interview.
“Sometimes when you’re accidentally high af from pot muffins, you don’t realize you’re A F–KING SNAPCHAT FILTER until after the Grammys and people tell you,” the daughter of actor Rob Schneider captioned her second marijuana-referencing screengrab.
Could Tamron Hall join Kelly Ripa on “Live With Kelly”?
A spy spotted the former “Today” host discussing her career over lunch with Discovery’s Henry Schleiff at Michael’s.
“He was encouraging her to join Kelly,” a spy told us. “He said, ‘Throw your hat in the ring! Lighten things up.’?”
CAA co-founder Bill Haber popped by to greet Hall, who sported a bright red power suit. She still hosts “Deadline Crime” on Schleiff’s ID network, but hasn’t announced her next move.
Hall’s rep declined to comment.
If you’re unfamiliar with Grey Gardens, the iconic 1975 documentary, I can not recommend it more. A sort of fly on the wall look at an intensely reclusive mother and daughter living in their East Hampton mansion. And they’re cousins of Jackie O, to boot.
As those who have seen the film know, the home was in terrible disrepair and was home to several dozen cats and various varmints. Mother and daughter (Big Edie and Lil Edie Bouvier, respectively) soon realized they were unable to care for the home and in 1979, they sold the home to Sally Quinn and Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee. In the purchase agreement, the new owners were forbidden to raise the home, only restore it.
Town and Country reports:
Bradlee once reported finding 52 dead cats in the home after purchasing it, along with fixtures that were so rotted “you’d go into the living room, touch the wall, and it would move out 12 inches, as if it were on a hinge from the second floor.” Quinn recalled to the New York Times that, on an early walkthrough, she touched a key on a grand piano in the living room and it collapsed and fell through the floor.
Stop it. That last part did not happen. That’s from a cartoon. Good gravy.
Well here we are. Now the completely revised and renovated home can be yours!
