Suburbarazzi End-of-week roundup: Olbermann stays at MSNBC, Trump enters the world of ‘fake’ celebrity feuding, and Pirro ditching Westchester

tjndc5-5c457gxvd826vp9m9rf_layout.jpg • Al and Jeanine Pirro are selling their Harrison home. Asking price: $4.3 million. Where are they going? [The Journal News]

• Keith Olbermann re-signed with MSNBC for another four years this week. He’ll also contribute essays to NBC Nightly News. I’m pretty sure, the new deal officially makes him the best paid primetime news anchor from a third place cable news network to have grown up in Hastings. [The Celebrity Cafe]

• Donald Trump enters the world of wrestling in a hair-off contest—seriously. No he won’t be wrestling, he’ll find someone to do that for him, but if his wrestler loses, Trump will have to shave his head. Call me crazy, but I’m guessing Trump’s guy doesn’t lose. [Monsters and Critics]


• More gossip that Dave Annable is dating Sally Field! While some readers have told me the Suffern-born actor has been spotted with Kate Walsh of Grey’s Anatomy, E! is reporting—without names—on a coupling that sounds awfully familiar. Hmmm. Wonder who they’re talking about? [E!]

• This has been a bad week for Scarsdale. First, native son Aaron Sorkin finds out NBC is yanking his show, “Studio 60,” a week earlier than originally thought due to abysmal ratings. And, today, the new film “Breach” opens, bringing more attention to one-time Scarsdale (and Yorktown) resident, Robert Hanssen, the treasonous FBI double-agent who sold secrets to the Soviets. [The Journal News]

• Ridiculously rich Westchester residents, Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, made Slate’s list of biggest givers. [Slate] Unfortunately, this photo of the NYC Mayor (who owns a home in Armonk) keeps popping up! [Gawker]

Casa Pirro

Pirro tells New York Magazine: “I love to entertain.�pirro1.jpg

“And they had just the spot,� reports Steve Fishman. Their $5 million mansion was built to resemble a Venetian palazzo. “They’d toured marble factories in Italy, selecting their favorites for the floors, for the stairs. ‘It’s marble on marble,’ says one friend. Two Vietnamese potbellied pigs, Homer and Wilbur, got their own small house out back, penned by an elaborate wrought-iron grill. (One visitor figured it was the servants’ quarters. The help, though, slept downstairs, near the exercise studio where Jeanine could sometimes be found before dawn.)

The article continues: “The Pirros held lots of parties. ‘A lot of dancing. A lot of entertaining,’ says Jeanine. They hosted theme nights. Cowboy night, Mexican night. One friend remembers spotting the district attorney at the top of a marble staircase in four-inch Manolos and bustier. ‘If you’ve got ’em, flaunt ’em like diamonds,’ Jeanine explained.�

With A Husband Like This, Who Needs Enemies?

Al and Jeanine go their separate ways

What is there to say about Al Pirro? Sent to jail for alleged tax fraud, fathered a child out of wedlock, received multiple speeding tickets, married to a media star whose almost comically awful run for Attorney General has thrust him into the spotlight—Al Pirro is like some tragic anti-hero from a Tolstoy novel.

In this week’s New York Magazine, Al gets surprisingly candid.

So consider today Pirro-palooza at Suburbarazzi. First, some highlights after the jump:
