Hugh Hefner put the Playboy Mansion up for sale awhile back and had a buyer that fell through. Looks like another one has been waiting for the chance to buy it and it actually seems like a more ideal situation. The buyer is Hugh’s next door neighbor, Daren Metroplous and has been since 2009. But wait, there’s more, he’s also the heir to Pabst Blue Ribbon. Can you say keg party?
The stipulation on Hugh’s side is that he gets to live there until he passes on. The stipulation on Daren’s side is that he gets to approve all parties at the mansion. Seems fair. He has already approved next Saturday’s Mid Summer Nights party and the annual Halloween party. Daren also gets to pop over whenever he wants, I’m assuming he will be showing his face quite a bit. TMZ is also reporting that Daren eventually wants to connect the two properties and restore them to their original versions.
