Friday Flim Flam: : Gloria Crest

The mega-mansion obsessed folks over at Homes of the Rich reported on the wildly opulent and fantastically pedigreed Gloria Crest Estate in Englewood, NJ that just popped up for sale with a $39,000,000 price tag. The 24,000 square foot  Italianate villa was originally built in 1926, according to listing information, for the heir to the Polish throne.
It was later purchased by Joseph Kennedy—that would be the father of Joseph P., Jr, John F., Rose, Kathleen, Eunice, Patricia, Robert F., Jean and Edward M.—as a gift for his then mistress and current namesake Gloria Swanson. There are rumors Mister Kennedy somehow paid for the property with Miz Swanson's money but we can't speak on that.

The lavish, five acre estate is currently owned by Edward Turen, the Chairman and CEO of Control Equity Group and the father of young and well-connected Tinseltown producer Kevin Turen who was married on the grounds with groomsman like Zac Efron, Harry Morton and Will Kopelman who otherwise known as Drew Barrymore's hubby and baby daddy.
