CarProperty.com Cashes In On Whitney Houston’s Death

Diving into sub-TMZ depths of celebrity slime, CarProperty.com is hoping to cash in on Whitney Houston’s death. Her Newark mansion, which had been on and off the market since 2009 with the niche real estate site, is still available. With Google churning out hits for the hitmaker’s name, why not take a minute for a solemn memory?

“With the recent passing of Whitney Houston in Beverly Hills, California the day before the 2012 Grammy Awards show, it is with a heavy heart that we remind you of this great mansion,” writes CarProperty.com proprietor Robert Cross before the pop star was even buried. 

Here are some highlights from the tasteless listing:

This house was also the scene of the activity that brought down this incredible musical diva through excessive drug abuse over a 15 year cycle.

Was that not clear?

Anything for a quick million! Especially in light of the sad fact that Houston was apparently selling the home because her drug habit had decimated her finances.

While Houston listed the property through the agency, it’s unclear how the sale will be executed (or if the brokerage has the rights to sell it in the first place) in the wake of her death. Carproperty.com was not available for comment.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
