Mortgage Renogotiation Keeps Ed McMahon In His House


Ed McMahon, who probably wishes he had been won a Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes check, will get to keep his home for now.

McMahon’s mansion, which fell into foreclosure earlier this year, will get to stay in the house now that Orange County based Foreclosure Trackers company has negotiated a new mortgage loan for the former king of late night sidekicks so that he can continue to make payments and keep a roof over his head.

Now if this can only be replicated a couple hundred thousand times for the rest of America.
