LARA SPENCER CAUGHT BARGAIN HUNTING AT JAN MURRAY ESTATE SALE

Last weekend we went to the estate sale of the late rat-pack comic Jan Murray at his midcentury modern former home in Beverly Hills. The place was packed with furniture and collectibles – photos of Jan with Sinatra and Milton Berle, Joey Bishop and Henny Youngman – all those old-time Las Vegas comics, and Jan’s massive cuff link collection. We spotted a 1960’s royal blue Italian ceramic turtle on a shelf and were reaching for it when a pretty blonde in short shorts yelled “That’s mine!” It turned out to be Lara Spencer who explained she was gathering items for “a house” she was decorating and scooped up the turtle. We were surprised to hear that the former host of “Antiques Roadshow” and present host of “The Insider” was decorating someone’s house – she never seemed very interested in the furniture on “Roadshow.” But not only is she decorating, but she wrote a book on the subject – being published next October. So she didn’t need Mary Hart’s job on E.T. anyway.

    Oh come on Janet, you should have used those sharp elbows of yours and pushed her out of the way. Alls fair in love and estate sales.

    Who the hell in Beverly Hills, or anywhere in L.A. for that matter, hires a woman to decorate their home? Isn’t that what gay boys are for? Women are THEIR plucky assistants wit cute figures and man-troubles.

    Janet, I agree with Denise. You caved too quickly. You should have told her about your Hancock Park manse and how the ceramic turtle was the perfect accent for that retro living room of yours! Besides, people I know at ET and The Insider tell me Lara is NOT a nice person.

    You know, I like this woman. I never watched her dumb entertainment vehicle for losers, but I have a secret best friend, in my mind, and its Kathy Griffin, who makes me laugh so hard. And apparently, they are friends. And they are remodeling Kathy’s Hollywood home….I watch everything/all things Kathy Griffin on TV….

    I agree. Lara Spencer should divorce celebrity and be a home restoration artiste’. That’s my solution to her life….then there’s mine.

    Jan Murray estate? Didn’t he pass away in 2006? Gee, I guess it takes some time to go through all the legal crap.

    You should have kept the turtle for yourself.

    Teddy, if Kathy likes her, then there is something to her. Griffin is not friends with airheads or celebutards.

    Jan wasnt a Murray by any means…at least Milton and Henny were proud Yids and never needed to change their names…Jan and Joey were afraid of losing $$$ so they quickly tried to fool the audience into thinking they were anglo’s.

    The pics from that era have everyone smoking a cigarette. Today it is 2 faggots eating some tofu or petting a dog.
