Update: Birbaum Sues Gallin

Earlier today we passed along a scandalicious report from TMZ about Hollywood heavyweight Roger Birnbaum suing legendary talent manager turned high-end house flipper Sandy Gallin. Mister B claims the house he bought from Mister G back in 2007 now "leaks like a sieve" and he wants half a million dollars (or so) to make the appropriate repairs.

Your Mama just knew deep down in our dark heart this legal dispute was going to get bitterly vicious and we told the children to pop some popcorn and get ready for the fireworks. Sure enough, here they come, even sooner than we imagined and brighter than a supernova.

Ooo-wee, children. Brace yourselves. Mister Gallin may be a mincer but he's clearly not one to mince words when it comes to his real estate reputation. TMZ followed up with a second report that Mister Gallin filed a counter suit against Mister Birnbaum that positively hisses that '" [Birnbaum] is motivated by his well-known miserly and parsimonious behavior in his efforts to avoid paying for the roofing remodel himself, which he believes will increase the value of the property that is , embarrassingly to Birnbaum, worth less than what he paid for it.'''
