I always think of Jim Carrey’s hilarious spoof of V.I. on “In Living Color”.

Hey, do Queen and David Bowie get a cut of every house he flips?

Courtney Cox and David Arquette did the same during the boom. They’d buy prime properties in need of renovation, Courtney would oversee the designer upgrade, and capitalizing on her celebrity status they would ask for and get ungodly prices.

Nice work if you can get it.

Thinking about now it I wonder how many of those buyers have defaulted.

Good for him. To echo a earlier post.

It is good to see someone who was in the business for a little while with a hit and then not making it anymore music wise doing something new and creative and making money at it. Hope his new album works out for him also.

So, Vanilla Ice is a Real-Estate speculator? Who’d thunk it?

He should have kept quiet about his recent success - Suge Knight will probably be along to hang him by his ankles from some hotel balcony until he signs everything away. Again.

With all his domestic battery charges, he apparently renovates houses with his wife’s head.

Robbie Van Winkle is so full of crap the buzzards wouldn’t eat his carcass. He’ll get drilled in court for fraud and file bankruptcy.

That being said, the funniest skit ever on SNL was Kevin Bacon playing Vanilla Ice on an episode of “The Dark Side with Nat X”. Word to your mother.
