Brando was great, but in this house Lorraine Bracco is mainly the closest detail I have to a godfather. The actress — greatest recognized for enjoying Karen in Goodfellas and Tony Soprano’s therapist, Dr. Melfi, on The Sopranos — has all my favor and could command me to do pretty significantly anything. You need furnishings shipped? No issue. Ex-boyfriend difficulty? I’ll speak to him — communication is significant. You want me to give Rizzoli & Isles a chance? I will do this for you. And now, Lorraine, I will look at your new HGTV Sicilian residence-renovation journey. Since I want to.

Deadline reported on Wednesday that Bracco will star in the collection My Significant Italian Journey, which paperwork how the Oscar-nominated actress renovated a 200-12 months-old residence she purchased for a one euro. An totally pristine idea I didn’t even know I needed. The house is reportedly 1,075 square feet of pure opportunity positioned in the hilly down of Sambuca di Sicilia. It has no working drinking water or electrical energy. Its walls are literally crumbling.

Bracco, seemingly thrilled to take care of it up, describes in the press release, “I believe lifetime is an adventure. When I noticed the write-up that you could purchase a residence in Sambuca for 1 euro, I jumped on it. So I arrived on the airplane. I acquired the residence. I’m pretty energized to be listed here, satisfy and function with the locals, and dwell amongst them. I’m in this article to pay back homage to my loved ones that will come from Sicily.” Of program she hires an architect, contractor, and locals with some understanding of how to hold properties from toppling above like a tower of breadsticks. “I’m an actress,” she assures us — “I have no thought what I’m actually having myself into.”
