Eric Schmidt is the owner of a mansion in Montecito, California that's so beautiful and gorgeous that even the rich and famous use it to hold their weddings and parties. But apparently, not anymore. And it's not because Schmitty is no longer the Google CEO...but because of Kim Kardashian. What?
Kim Kardashian was one of those rich and famous who used Schmitty's house for her wedding (with Brooklyn Net Kris Humphries) and has apparently spawned a curse over the 1926 George Washington Smith-designed Spanish mansion (formerly owned by Ellen Degeneres). According to Radar Online:
Before Kim, the home was often used in the Summer months as a place where the rich could hold their private weddings—but now couples are shunning the estate because they think the place is jinxed
It's a combination of Kimmy K's "nouveau riche" / reality TV-ness / failed marriage that's turning off people, but I can't help but feel sad for ol' Eric Schmidt. He gets caught in an icky affair; loses control at Google and now gets jipped because of Kim Kardashian. Such is life, I guess. [Radar Online via The Verge, Image Credit Getty]
