Check Out Former Mayor Villaraigosa's Gorgeous New $2.5 Million Home In The Hills
When then-Los Angeles Mayor Tony V was getting ready to leave office in 2013, there was a lot of chatter about how he was going to maintain his flashy lifestyle once he left public office. He gave an interview to the New York Times, saying: “I don’t have a car. I don’t have a house. And I don’t have a job. I'm on the short end of the stick here, right?”
Now we have word from the Los Angeles Times that Villaraigosa just closed on a lovely Hollywood Hills home with views of the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Observatory and the ocean. It set him back $2.5 million, so it sounds like he's doing just fine.
How, we're not exactly sure. He is reportedly living on a $97K pension from his years as a public servant. He's an advisor to alleged pyramid scheme Herbalife. Most recently we heard he is not a candidate for the open California senate seat but he is rumored to be considering a run for California governor.
While he ponders a run in 2018, he can take in the 360-degree views from his new digs. The home is 3,600-square-foot, was built in 1977 and has three bedrooms. If he decides to go the George W. Bush route instead, there's an art studio. It's quite lovely.
