Michael Douglas’ Ex (Not Maureen Dowd!) Buys Big East Side Townhouse

1 Michael Douglas Ex (Not Maureen Dowd!) Buys Big East Side Townhouse

Being the ex-wife of Romancing the Stone’s romantic lead has its perks. Diandra Douglas, who used to be married to Michael Douglas, and her new husband, guitar-maker (really) Michael Klein, have paid $15.25 million for an 1899 townhouse at 114 East 65th Street.    

According to deeds filed this afternoon, they bought the 8,000-square-foot place from finance man Karim Tabet. According to an old WWD item, the house was the kind of place with big Warhol-aping paintings of Mr. Tabet’s kids, painted by silly supermarket heiress Juliet Hartford.

And, according to the listing with Brown Harris Stevens’ Guida De Carvalhosa and Paula Del Nunzio, the elevator townhouse is “crowned with lion's heads and a curved balcony above the entrance,” plus a "guest suite complete with a dressing room and full marble bath,” and then “ample servant's quarters”--because actor’s exes shouldn’t have to clean up after themselves.

Plus, the six-level place has a 19-foot-long roof terrace and 500-square-foot backyard garden.

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
