Pia Zadora was a "has-been", even before she bought this lovely home in B.H.
Didn't they eventually get her on tax-evasion charges?

Mary Pickford was the VERY FIRST international superstar in the history of the world.#1, the first and best. She led a fascinating life and married another superstar then, togerther, they ruled the social life in Hollywood for years and years. You had not arrived unless you were invited to Pickfair.
Her mansion should have been turned into a museum for all the future centuries to come. But what happens? No-talent, pathetic and ridiculous "Pia-friggin-Zarora" moves in, because some idiot rich guy falls fer her, then proceeds to gut the place to match her own no-class tastes.
Zadora should be tortured. First, she tries to make it in hollywood but doesn't because of her painfully obvious lack of talent or interest to anyone, then has the nerve to mindlessly crucify a ollywood landmark. I will hate her forever.

Just caught wind of a Pickfair estate auction taking place Nov. 22-23. There are some really cool items up for bid like Mary Pickford’s personal autograph book, select pieces of Pickford’s jewelry collection and rare pieces of art from Pickfair.

Just thought I’d pass the info. along for all of you Mary Pickford lovers. I guess it will be broadcast live on www.auctionnetwork.com/pickfair , along with a tool that lets internet viewers to bid remotely against the floor.
