Didn't someone mention that they only own an apartment in the house, not the whole three story house? I guess that's why Bethenney went in the door under the front steps? Do they live in the basement.. al la Laverne and Shirley and watch people's feet go by? I've never lived in that type of area... could the yard be a communal area?
Alex was vague when she said "Three year plan." I originally thought she meant "live like this for three years then start renovating"???
