The Miami mansion Casa Casurina, where Gianni Versace lived – and was murdered in front of – was on the market for $125 million a year ago. The price had been slashed twice, first to $100 million, then to $75 million, due to lack of interest. Today the current owner is headed for bankruptcy and when the bank auctions it off next month, the bidding will start at $25 million. (Interested parties will need to place $3 million in an escrow account and have liquid assets worth in excess $40 million, btw.) For that you get some jaw-dropping amenities: 23,000 square feet, 10 bedrooms (the master has a double kingsize bed and TWELVE closets), 11 bathrooms, a 12-car garage, lavish interiors, and a pool lined in 24-karat gold. Gianni left his fortune to Donatella’s daughter Allegra, who is worth $800 million. Shouldn’t she just buy it and make it a museum to her late uncle? It kind of is anyway. (via Celebrity Net Worth)
You better werk, Paulina Porizkova! The supermodel is in Miami with her family on vacation and she tweeted this photo with the caption, “doing the siren for hubby.” Ric Ocasek is one lucky dude. Some 20-year-olds wish they had a body like hers.
There’s nothing like a soak in the brine to draw out the poisons from a night spent carousing. (Or you could drown because you’re too hungover to fight the undertow.) German footballer Jerome Boateng and his friends spent the day swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and laying on the hot sand in Miami after a late night spent celebrating the Miami Heat winning the NBA championship. The next day he and his brother would be taking part in a charity beach football match for Soccer Without Limits, raising awareness for the fight against racism in football.

Beloved wowlebrity Wilmer Valderrama got his swim on at the beach in Miami yesterday, but apparently the guy can’t actually swim and had to call his bodyguard to “escort” him back to dry sand. (Photos: Pacific Coast news)

Australian pop star Cody Simpson signed autographs in Miami yesterday before his concert that night. The Ozzie singer has a contract with Atlantic Records and is also quite a swimmer, having won two gold medals at the Queensland Swimming Championship. Sadly, can’t find any pics of him in a Speedo.
