We have really come to love Lisa Falcone, the Harlem-born wife of hedge-fund manager Phillip Falcone, who is putting her husband's newly minted billions to good use. Not just by helping make Manhattan more awesome with the High Line and producing movies that are actually good, but by shamelessly — indeed, joyfully — entertaining us by acting out her "if I were insanely rich" fantasies—playing soccer in Lanvin and pearls, training her pet pig to play the piano, or fixing up her $49 million, 25,726-square-foot estate so that it's just the way she likes it. The Post today details some of the renovations the Falcones are doing on the former Guccione pleasure palace on East 67th Street:
The master bedroom takes up the entire third floor, with his-and-her bathrooms (though hers is twice as large), a study for her, and a balcony. She gets not one but two walk-in closets, one of which comes with its own bar.
And, we must assume, its own hot bartender. We personally think is a fantastic idea. After a couple of cocktails, those dresses will look that much more fabulous.
