Another year, another apartment. Last summer, Rosie O'Donnell dropped $8 million?well, $8,095,087.50, to be precise?on a duplex penthouse at 130 West 12th Street, part of St. Vincent's Hospital that was converted into condos. Less than a year later, O'Donnell has redecorated the 4BR/3BA (which comes with a 429-square-foot private terrace) all classy-like, with lots of art, colorful carpets, and inventive light fixtures. A tipster reports that two weeks ago she threw it back on the market, now asking $10,950,000. The Nyack, N.Y. resident and her wife Michelle Rounds welcomed a baby girl in January, bringing the progeny total to five, so perhaps they're upgrading for a pied-a-terre with more bedrooms. If a buyer bites for that price, the straight-talking comedian, LGBT rights activist, and gay cruise pioneer will have pocketed a 35 percent profit over one year. Not too shabby.
Plus, the buyer will get to live next door to Theory CEO Andrew Rosen, who purchased the other PH not long after O'Donnell. He has a bigger terrace, but you know, make nice and he might let you use it. Both Rosen and Rosie bought their places for above ask, which bodes well for her flip.
