Suzanne Somers' home destroyed by fire

Suzanne Somers' homeOur corporate cousins at TMZ.com are reporting that the Malibu home of Suzanne Somers was destroyed by a fire today. The fire swept through a number of beachfront properties in the tony California town; the site also confirms that the home of Susan Anton was also destroyed.

Other people who live in the Malibu Colony area, where the fire is occurring, are Mel Gibson, Pierce Brosnan, Pamela Anderson, Barbra Streisand, Ted Danson, David Geffen and Courtney Cox-Arquette. What I find interesting is how often brush fires, mudslides, and other disasters destroy houses out there in Malibu. Is living on the beach worth the headaches that seem to happen year after year over there? I don't know who's more of a masochist; the people who don't move out of a flood plain or people who pay millions of dollars for houses built on a beach. I think it's a tie.

Malibu is a stunningly beautiful place to live, especially in contrast to Los Angeles' other housing options. Generally, the nicer a place is to live (in the hills or the ocean), the more expensive it is and the more prone to hazards it is.

Most of the owners of homes on Malibu Road or the Malibu Colony also have other homes further inland, in places like Beverly Hills. Although there are some people who live on Malibu Road who are not wealthy(*), for the overwhelming majority of them this is just a minor inconvenience.

In fact, for many people worth in the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars, rebuilding their homes every decade or so is a nice hobby.

For a while, I worked for a very nice business owner whose hobby seemed to be remodeling her business premises and house every couple of years. Her office building was damaged by that tiresome earthquake a few years back; her response was to remodel it more beautifully and elaborately than ever.

I would certainly not hesitate to buy on Malibu Road; I would love my house and I'd make sure it was well insured, at least until I entered the world of the super-rich.

(*) Well, anyone who lives on Malibu road is wealthy. The lots are worth US$2 million plus. But I mean "except for their homes".

It's a shame when anyone loses their home - no matter where it is or who they are.

It must have been started from the friction of her thighmaster.

It's funny I just drove through PCH Sunday and you know it really is worth the headache, if you saw the beach and all of these nice houses that you would understand.
