"Ugliest House in Connecticut"

That's what neighbor, Bill Blass remarked to Joan Rivers when she announced her intention to buy a property near his country home in Connecticut. Yet Joan did buy the home on 84 acres and converted it into her ideal getaway, a place to bring her grandson and "friends having nervous breakdowns."

Like many homebuyers with vision, Joan overlooked the fact that the current home on the lot "looked like a Denny's" and instead saw it's potential in it's sweeping views. In the meantime she figured she could "just stand at the front door and hand out menus".

I don't care how much surgery Joan has had- she makes me laugh. Read the NY Times article and watch a slide show of the home.
