Entertainer Glenn Beck may be on his way to Texas, to actually live here. And what better place for the controversial, former Fox radio and television host, author, entrepreneur, and political commentator who hosts the Glenn Beck Program, and Glenn Beck on Fox News Channel, author of six New York Times-bestselling books, and founder and CEO of Mercury Radio Arts, to settle than the tony, upscale, and uber private gated community of Vaquero smack dab next to D/FW Airport? Sources have told CandysDirt that Beck has leased the $3,900,000 listed home of Jorge & Vanessa Piedra (she is a Swarovski heiress as in the crystal, he is a major league ballplayer who’s had some “issues” and was last with the Florida Marlins). The home they are renting is at 2208 Vaquero Estates Boulevard. The Piedra home has been on the market since August, 2009, and originally listed for $5,400,000. The price was lowered to $3,900,000 and then put in the rental pool for $20,000 a month, which is actually more than the original lease offer of $15,000. It’s that kind of market, I guess, where you lower selling prices but can increase the monthly lease. In fact, as of 6/26 the behemoth home was for lease for just 59 days where it had been on the sales market for 351 days. Jeepers!
Or will he keep it as a second home? Is he going anywhere? The Dallas Morning News is reporting (I subscribe!) that Chuck Greenberg will be replaced as the managing general partner of the Texas Rangers and CEO of the club’s operating holding company. Expect the announcement later today. Something is apparently rotten in Denmark: a source told the Dallas Morning News that Greenberg left the Rangers’ spring training facility in Surprise, Arizona abruptly on Saturday, this during what was supposed to be a fun-filled, happy, joyous weekend for the partners. And oh dear: Greenberg did not show to a party he and Nolan Ryan were supposed to host on Sunday.
This is Adrian Beltre. Third baseman for the Texas Rangers. Born in the Dominican Republic. He is selling this California home, as I mentioned to you earlier in the week, and he and his adorable wife are house-hunting in — where else — Vaquero. (Update: My friend the RealEstalker, a.k.a. Mama, tells me that Bradbury, where Adrian’s Cali house is on the market for $19 million big ones, is one of the most expensive communities in the country. It is also surrounded by toilet bowls. If you are ever looking out there, take toilet paper.) But here, that agent- to- the- stars, Allie Beth Allman, has been toting the darling couple around town all week. Allie Beth, as you may recall, is the agent who found former President George and Laura Bush their home over on Daria Drive. Here’s one of the glorious homes the Beltres may have been gazing at in Southlake, but I hear they have their hearts set on Vaquero. Tons of inventory out there, like the Jonas Brother’s home. Or this one, one of my all time favorites, because the lines are so clean.
