Uncategorized — June 17, 2010 Why Money Doesn’t Buy Taste… Check out Celine Dion’s new $20 million home/personal Six Flags. UGH. What I could build with $20 million….. 38Leave a Comment Share the Post Pin it, Tweet, Email.

While it’s sad she bought that; I find it heartbreaking that someone actually built that as their dream home. Celine must have so much fun going down the waterslide… Totally inline with her super-cheesy over-the-top image! This house is a little crazy. Reminds me of the Neverland Ranch. Yuck. I can tell right now that she’s a bizarre control freak. Notice how all her lawn furniture is angled perfectly and lined up like soldiers. She probably forces her staff to keep it all organized and perfect. Yuck. It may not be stylish, but it sure looks like fun! :P I don’t get it….is it her house or a waterpark. LOL I imagine her young son had a lot to do with this design. How bizarre! Looks like a badly designed water park. That said, what can we expect from someone who has spent that many years in Vegas? Wait- is that everything? Including the main residence?? I thought that building was the pool house… Although it does seem over the top, is it needed to be mean, cutting, and hateful? Maybe the issue one should be looking at is not what KIND of home she built with $20 million dollars but that $20 million dollars would ever be spent on building a home at all. Just something to think about. At first, I thought this was Disney. YIKES! The neighbors must love them. Without the ‘lazy river’, I think that the house itself looks gorgeous. Though I’m not a Celine fan, I would think that it’s impossible for her to take her kid to a waterpark without creating a huge spectacle. I understand the motivation – so her kid and his friends can have fun without being surrounded by security or having hundreds of creepers make their day suck. If I had the money, I’d probably opt for a diving pool instead: I could go down a waterslide only so many times before it became tiresome but diving was always fun. She has a kid — that place is probably heaven. IF you can’t say something nice , . . Okay, I have to confess I do love me some Celine, but Oh. My. Jesus. THAT IS PROBABLY THE MOST FOWL THING I HAVE EVER SEEN. Love your blog, its a daily read without a doubt. really!? who is swimming so much that they need their pool to be a venetian canal? and you’d think with 20mill they’d have better landscaping! WOW. That’s what I always thought when I watched MTV cribs… No log flume??! Best part of the article: “According to reports in the States, Celine angered her local community when she used up all the fresh water supply on the island [for the pools], which led to a drought and water restrictions in the area.” I’m with Heidi. It has to be all for her son/kids on the way. While I’m sure the is a better way to execute something like this, it looks like one hell of a good time. perhaps i watch too much reality tv, but the first thing i thought about after reading the title of this post was luann de lesseps’ single “money can’t buy you class”. i think sentiment of the song stands in celine’s case. haha…I’m with Kenda…I could hear that dreadful song in my head while I was looking at this! Bah! McMansion. I saw this and had mixed emotions. I mean, it’s her property to do whatever she wants with, but at the same token, that whole getup seems to be a bit of an eyesore. I read a quote from the neighbor saying something like this project has basically taken up all of her landscaping….which IMO, seems sort of a pity, but at least her kid will be happy. Hope he doesn’t tire of water parks anytime soon! aaah scary!!! That is so ridiculous, it’s not even funny. I mean yeah waterparks are fun like ONCE a summer, but does anyone love them so much they get their own? The only benefit I see is that it fulfills the childhood fantasy of watching Richie Rich and wanting his life. ? Come on folks…even with the kid angle it is hard to justify this (both cost and taste). Why not build a 10 million dollar mansion, take 5 and build a sweet community center for some deserving neighborhood and the other 5 can be used to rent out an entire water park a couple times a summer for the kids. Or better still…take 100K give it to Erin so she can act as a taste consultant! Love the blog! My biggest issue with it is the waste of water. I want to be nice and suggest that she has some sort of water saving devices on site. Rain water catcher, grey water reclamation, something? It doesn’t bother me that it’s not my style because I don’t have to look at it, she does. Yikes! Who has time to even use all that pool. Man you could totally pee in it an never get caught though. Ha ha ha! Wow, that’s waaayyyy too much pool!! Oh god. Gonna puke. A few weeks ago I posted the most expensive home ever sold: Word up- its hideous. $80 million dollars worth of ugly. wow. isnt there some time of legal intervention we can preform? Oh my Gawd…dee!!!!! You would think that many people dealing with that much money – someone should have the taste and sense to tell her what an awful idea it all was! It’s ugly, but it looks like a lottttt of fun. Okay, while I wouldn’t put in the water park (it seems like something that kids would tire of in a few years), I can understand that it’s unique and they obviously love water. I don’t get the pool in front AND in back. How many people do they have swimming at one time? But hey, whatever, I guess. More Uncategorized... Upcoming Book Signing!
