We’re pleased to congratulate Petra Ecclestone, a.k.a. the 22-year-old heiress who bought Candy Spelling’s mansion for $85 million, on her upcoming nuptials in Rome this weekend. We are less pleased, however, to share with you the most unfortunate sweatpants she and her sister are currently sporting in preparation for the big day.
Petra’s older sis, Tamara, tweeted the photo of the sisters in pink velour sweatpants that have “Maid of Honour” (they’re British) and “Bride to Be” embroidered on the respective behinds. Classy!

You really can’t make this stuff up.
This mogul spawn just took his tikes turtle hunting — although he tweeted that it’s “not what ur thinking.” I’m not sure what I was thinking when I read that, so I assume he means that he’s not going to actually eat turtle. So, how does one do this? Apparently you take a “chicken leg tied to a string” and dangle it in the water among turtles.
Stumped on who this could be? I’ll give you a hint: he referred to one of his children as “D3.”

Breaking fauxgal news: Michaele and Tareq Salahi are moving into a white house (heh) in Beverly Hills. And by house, of course, we mean mansion.
Apparently they’ve agreed to rent the new pad for $20,000 a month, according to TMZ. Call us real estate snobs, but it doesn’t look that fancy to us, despite the hefty price tag. Oh well. Beverly Hills is Beverly Hills, right?

From time to time, we like to check in on some of our favorite Fauxguls. You know, those heirs, heiresses and wannabes who don’t necessarily wield the power to be considered tycoons of industry, but have either the money or attitude to behave as such.
Today’s exhibit: Tamara Ecclestone. And her Twitter feed. Tamara is the big sis of Petra Ecclestone, otherwise known as the girl who bought the Spelling mansion for $85 million. And they’re both the daughters of Formula 1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone.

And we thought we’d have to wait for a paid exclusive to get our first look.
Looks like People magazine might have jumped the gun just a tad bit, ambushing the new mom in her oversized shades as she entered her Manhattan apartment this week. Arabella was dressed in a ones with a matching hat — complete with pink tassels, of course. Click through for a picture of the wee one!

Anyone who’s been on the bad end of a viral internet meme knows it’s no picnic. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that Hermon Raju, the finance whiz kid who reportedly works at BNP Paribas and rose to internet infamy following her Metro-North meltdown, isn’t thrilled by the attention she’s gotten in recent weeks.
You may remember finance-(maybe?) mogul-in-training Raju by one of her many easily repeatable catchphrases: Do you know what schools I’ve been to?! and “I’m not a crazy person, I’m a very well-educated person! Well, according to our friends at Mediaite, she’s back.

The greatest assets of the truly wealthy – sprawling estates, sports cars, mega yachts – are tough, if not impossible to fake. Smaller items are easier to mimic, and there’s a big market for them – streets from New York to Venice are famously populated with vendors peddling fake Birkin bags and copied Vuitton suitcases. But we’ve officially reached a new low – New York women are faking it on the soles of their shoes.

Forget William and Kate – there’s another British wedding to set your eyes on. Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of Formula 1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, or better known as the 22-year-old who bought Candy Spelling’s house for $150 million, is getting married next month. Guess what? It’s going to be really fancy.
The Daily Mail reports that Ecclestone will marry her longtime boyfriend, a 28-year-old British businessman named James Stunt, in the Italian castle where Tom Cruise married Katie Holmes and Martin Scorsese married Isabella Rosselini. Sources say the Ecclestones will fly over 300 friends and family for the nuptials at the Odescalchi Castle, which is near Rome.

Okay, full disclosure, I don’t actually know what perfect form would look like, golf-wise. But still, this mogul cutie looks like she’s in control.
So which ultra-rich family is she from? (Hint: her social media fanatic dad just tweeted this pic this morning.) Click through the jump to find out…

… For his daughter.
See, most parents whip up a Duncan Hines and (maybe) hire a clown or something on their kids’ birthdays. Donald Trump Jr., on the other hand, hires a life-size Spiderman and commissions a custom Spiderman cake for his 4-year-old, Kai (who we’re guessing really likes Spiderman. Just a hunch.). Trump Jr. was kind enough to document the whole occasion on Twitter, so we can live vicariously through the event.
The Spiderman-for-hire looks like a pretty good sport — apparently Kai “asked mommy if she could keep him” after he joined her on the swings. Also, the cake looks like it was ripped straight out of “Cake Boss.” Seriously impressive. But we still have to ask: Where was Grandpoppa Trump? We’re sure he enjoys a Spiderman cake as much as the next mogul. Check out the Twitter-sharing after the jump.
