Celebrity Q&A
Who: Lisa Lampanelli
Notable:
Comedian (Comedy Central)
Fame & Fortune Q&A:
Bankrate: Do you also do a lot of investing, like stocks and real estate?
Lisa Lampanelli: I tell my girl at AG Edwards, "Do whatever." And my financial guy -- I have a guy who does my financial planning -- I let him handle it. I owned an apartment in Manhattan, but I sold it and moved to Connecticut and bought a place there. I never rent anything anymore, because you can't really lose when buying a house. My mother always said, "Be the worst house in a good neighborhood instead of the best house in a bad neighborhood." I've always viewed myself as the worst house in a good neighborhood.
Lesson learned: 
Real estate is a sound investment.
