It's rumored that embattled, but still filthy rich, media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his wife Wendi Deng have finally sold their North Shore summer escape after years of trying. The 10,000-square-foot, eleven-bedroom palace was once listed for as much as $14.8 million (and rented to Brangelina for $100,000 a month), but whispers say it went for a recession-stained $9.1 million. The estate, like Rupe's yacht, is called Rosebud, sorry, Rosehearty. [Real Estalker via FishbowlNY/Mediabistro]
