BARGAIN HUNTING

Mel Gibson's Open House

Doesn't anyone need a Greenwich, Connecticut mansion? Poor Mel Gibson's 15,862-square foot house, set on a 75-acre lot and decorated to have the feel of a monastery, has been up for sale since 2007, the New York Post reports. Originally listed for $39.7 million, Gibson slashed the price last September and then again in past weeks; it is now a $29.7 million bargain. Don't feel too sorry for Mel, though, he purchased the property in 1994 for a mere $9.25 million. In April, Gibson's wife of 28 years filed for divorce, and could take half of his reported $1 billion fortune. No wonder he's in a hurry to sell.
