When the Playboy mansion went up for sale earlier this year no one believed that the it would go for the asking price of 200 million. We still don’t. The Mansion was officially sold this week but the price paid for it was not disclosed. The real story is “who” bought the home and agreed to let Hugh Hefner live there until he dies.
The new owner of the Playboy Mansion is Daren Metropoulos, principal at private equity firm Metropoulos & Co. This is the company who owns Hostess, makers of the Twinkie. He also happens to own the property next to the Playboy Mansion.
I wonder if the next Mansion party will feature Twinkies and Ding Dongs! Ha!
