Protecting Free Speech is Hard Work: Expect More Real Estate Dish From Candy Now That a Trial Date Has Been Set
Our embattled Candy has been on blog-lite these past few days, thanks to the Maloufs’ attempts to chill her free speech down at Dallas County Court at Law No. 3 in Malouf vs. Mary Candace Evans, Byron Harris and WFAA-TV and Laura Wilson.
Now that Candy and WFAA agreed to a temporary injunction wherein they cannot step foot on the Maloufs’ property, the parties are not scheduled back in court until September, when the trial is set to begin. Continue reading
Tell Me Your Real Estate Story: “Unfair Park” Editor Eric Nicholson is Back in Dallas and Needs a New Place
Eric Nicholson is the new Robert “Fingers of Fury” Wilonsky. The young journo, formerly of the Texarkana Gazette, has taken over the helm of Unfair Park, the Dallas Observerblog. With his new gig, he’s back in Dallas and holed up at his parents’ house in North Dallas with his wife, Megan, his 3-year-old, Connor, and another baby on the way. Obviously, he needs a great house for a great deal. Any takers? Continue reading
Big D or No? Why Did Pilar Sanders Look at a House in Rockwall, Step Daughter Weighs in on (Non?) Divorce
Look, I want them to stay together, I really do. Comes this story in the Dallas Observer where Pilar Sanders says she “is committed to their marriage.” Wow. Good for her. For them. Then today, TMZ – and as I have said before, God knows where they get their stuff — reports that Deion’s daughter Deiondra (she’s from a previous marriage) seems to be accusing Pilar of not being truthful, or something:
Leslie Minora over at The Dallas Observer has done what I wanted to do — written a great, in-depth story about Ken Robinson, the Flower Mound Squatter who filed an affadavit, paid $16 and then proceeded to squat in a $350,000 Flower Mound McMansion. It’s the Dallas real estate, no wait, the Texas real estate, story of the, well, year. As Leslie points out, Ken is more popular now than Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater — both poster heros for “sticking it to the man”. Slater said “I’m sick and tired and not going to take this job crap anymore.” Robinson is living the American dream for $16 bucks. He found a house in the suburbs with a swimming pool for God’s sake and is living there, still living there. And yes, he has electricity and according to Minora, the place is spotless. Robinson has cleaned up the yard, the pool, the house, and appears to be doing a great service to that neighborhood — but the neighbors still think he should go. Any case, read this story. Robinson is apparently trying to give seminars teaching people how to adversly possess homes. He’s charging $10,000 for a two-day course. He is single, has been married twice and has six kids, even grandkids. I have always wanted to know how the hell he got the key to the house, to get in, and the story offers the three answers he has given: he found the key in the grass while mowing the lawn, he got in the house through a broken window, he had the locks changed after showing a locksmith his affadavit.
If Good Christian Bitches Jacks Up our Real Estate Market, Just Think What The B******S of Dallas will Do!
Robert Wilonsky at The Dallas Observer says not only is the Dallas pilot going to be shot here, shooting begins in just a few weeks and really showcases the city. Our city. Let me tell you how vitally this impacts us. Giving away my age here, kind of like Larry, but I was living in New York City when the first Dallas series was airing, and learned we would be moving to Dallas. We all sat and watched it, took notes: wow, do all the houses look like that? Do all the women? That place looks familiar. (Translate: sell my furniture, go on a diet, get Botox STAT.) Then a few years later — that was the longest-running series ever — my daughter and I took swimming classes with Charlene Tilton and her baby — BTW where is Charlene now? A television show about a certain city just sets the image. Could Sex In The City have taken place anywhere but New York? And not all cities get shows named after them — where’s “Austin“? For better or worse, Good Christian Bitches and Dallas are showcasing us to the world, and outsiders will think we live like those characters… and all have ranches with Longhorn. And are Christian, with cleavage.
