A LITTLE OF WHAT LOLA LOVES: GEORGE'S LAKE COMO VILLA!








George Clooney is selling his Lake Como villa for £26 m to escape the paparazzi. The Beckhams are, reportedly, fiercely attempting to purchase it - because of the paparazzi.

You couldn't make it up! What's your take? Am I being overly cynical? Do the Beckhams have as much right to paparazzi as George has to privacy?

I'd beg, borrow and steal to buy this home, but only if Mr. Clooney came with it. Happy PFF!

Have a great PFF DAy!!

Thanks for sharing,

Just imagine having the sort of money lying around that one could just buy a sumptuous place like this.

I recall seeing inside of George's home (sans George) in a magazine, and I was amazed by how down to earth and non-Hollywood it looks inside... Courtesy of Gentleman George, I should guess... Unfortunately we won't be able to say the same about Lady Gaga, er, Beckingham Palace... Money doesn't always buy taste, Lola... I know the locals have said they'll be sad to lose George, I can't imagine the Beckhams will bring such cachet, but they will bring the Paps... x

Well, it is a very nice villa.
Have gone off GC after I heard that he was a cheap tipper --maybe sometimes he isn't
also UP IN THE AIR was awful
I used to like him a lot him.

I wonder what it would take to get an invite to the Beckham's housewarming party? I'd love to see that house.

Oh HH!

Darling Nora and Co ;) I've been trying to leave comments for weeks and this thing shuts down on your blog for some reason, again hope it works.

P.S. Nice shack.

Love it! .... how funny.
I say the Beckhams deserve the Papparazzi.
This Villa is beautiful, right on the lakeside.

Hope that you are having a lovely weekend darling.

What's a fashionable and hip celeb to do?

Wherever they go, the paparazzi will seek them out. Somehow, I think they don't mind.

As Doris Day says: Que Sera Sera!

Hope you and Lola are well.

Love Melissa
