Sarah Buzaglo

If you were offered a chance to live in a house with a private swimming pool, bowling alley, freezers stocked with over fifty flavors of ice cream, and a private helicopter available day and night, would you take it?

And while you’re out, people will be talking about and taking pictures of everything you do.
