New York is abuzz with news that conservative TV talker Glenn Beck, who hosted his final show on Fox on Thursday, is moving to Westlake (Dallas Fort Worth area).
Icymi, Neighborsgo real estate blogger Candy Evans reported Wednesday that Beck will rent a 7,900-square foot estate in Westlake owned by baseball player Jorge Piedra and Swarovski heiress Vanessa Piedra.
He'll fork over $20,000 a month for the 7-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home with four-car garage in Vaquero Estates.Still unclear whether Beck -- the wipe-board loving, tear-jerking commentator -- will relocate his media empire to Texas, though he's already said he'll abandon New York City. And he's joked about running for Texas governor.
The New York Daily News, in a report citing Evans' intel about the Westlake rental mansion, says Beck recently sold a mansion in New Canaan, Conn., for $3.6 million -- $300,000 below the current listing price on the Westlake home, though he decided to rent, at least for now.The story is making the rounds today thanks to Drudge.
