It’s no secret that I am a huge Bruno Mars fan. So this past weekend when a new docu-series about his 4 sisters “The Lylas” premiered on WEtv, I was beyond excited to watch it. After I found out about the series a few months ago I followed all of the sisters on twitter and have been laughing hysterically at their back and forth banter ever since. They seem like really genuine, down to Earth girls, much like Bruno, so I couldn’t help but love them too. They honestly make you want to have a whole gaggle of sisters to laugh and make jokes with, and it made me upset that I don’t have any siblings close to me in age.
The first episode, “Aloha LA” was centered around the girls picking up and moving from Hawaii to LA to start their music career. Many of the scenes featured their late mother, Bernadette, which would have brought a tear to anyone’s eye, but since I follow the family and see their tweets and pictures of her, I was crying like a baby 10 seconds into it when the 4 sisters were getting tattoos in memory of her. They even put her ashes in the ink! Like her children, she also seemed very down to Earth and fun loving, and after watching her for 5 minutes in the first episode, I could totally sympathize with how much they must miss her. I didn’t even know her and I already know that I’ll miss seeing her on the show.
The scenes she was featured in took place at the home Bruno bought for her in Honolulu, Hawaii. A huge beautiful dream house on the beach. You all know that I am investigator Gizzy, so seeing this beautiful house and knowing all her children now live in LA, I started to wonder what happened to the house. I wondered if the family would keep the house for a place to stay and remember her when they were visiting Hawaii, or would they sell it? So I took to the almighty Google and came up with nothing.
Since I often scour the internet for homes for sale that I can’t afford in cities I’ll only ever visit, I knew exactly where to go next. Good ol’ Trulia. Surprisingly enough, I found that the house is for sale, and has been on the market for all of 8 days, and it is even more beautiful than what you see in the show.
When my Grandfather passed away a few years ago we had his house cleaned out and a buyer lined up within about 6 weeks. I know for my family, selling the house was a good way to cope. So I feel for them and hope their family is able to find peace with it.
Anyway, in the show Bernadette mentions the house and alludes to how amazing it is and that she needs the girls to be really successful so she can have another house just like it in LA. So here you go, check it out, she wasn’t kidding:
