From the Los Angeles website: UPDATED, 9:40 a.m., Aug. 19: In case you haven’t heard, the Playboy Mansion has a new owner.

His name is Daren Metropoulos. His father is the billionaire investor who currently owns Hostess. He was already Hugh Hefner’s neighbor before coughing up a cool $100 million for the iconic pleasure palace. Got it? Good.
