Socialite and fashion designer blows PR for idle rich —

[Jul. 29]

Petra Ecclestone is the daughter of Bernie Ecclestone, famous for controlling Formula One auto racing for years. She just bought Candy Spelling’s mansion — you know… the one owned by recently deceased super producer Aaron Spelling, father of disinherited Tori Spelling from 90210? At any rate, the luxury mansion is one of the largest property sales in recent history for a private mansion. Bought by the 22-year-old daughter of the ├╝ber wealthy F1 magnate for $85 million, she spoke out to the press about why she was willing to invest so much money in a property she had never seen, why at such a young age and single she needed such a big place, and why she elects to spend money like wasted tap water rather than doing anything to give back to the community when she is given a chance.

Good Morning America reports, “When asked why she didn’t use the money to pay for affordable homes for 1000’s of families — she replied, “I help as much as I can, but at the end of the day … however much the house has costed, that’s not going to kind of I dunno … like change the world I don’t think.”
