UPDATED, 3:04 p.m., April 20: This one’s no rumor: the former residence of famed gossip columnist Rona Barrett is up for sale for $9 million. 

The legendary personality, who once interviewed a young Donald Trump on why he didn’t want to be president, rose to fame in the 1970s and 80s.

Her Beverly Hills residence was custom-built for entertaining, complete with a media room, 15-foot-tall ceilings and an outdoor area with heated patios.

The 4,500-square-foot house has three bedrooms, four bathrooms and a swimming pool with spa. The listing agent is Michael Eisenberg with Keller Williams Beverly Hills. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen

Correction: An earlier version of this story named Rona Barrett as the seller. She is a former owner of the property.
