In the New York homes of former CNN anchor Don Lemon
News anchor Don Lemon will continue to live his luxurious life.
On Wednesday at the Time 100 Gala, 57-year-old Lemon told Page Six he wasn’t mad after being kicked off CNN on Monday.
“It’s not in my nature,” said the journalist. “I’m not an angry person, I’m not angry.”
Despite tweeting that he was “stunned” by his abrupt firing, Lemon claimed he is no longer in shock – adding that he still has his luxury pads to return to.
“I’m a very resilient person,” he said.
“I have had a very full life with many twists and turns. I come from a strong, sturdy tribe in Louisiana and I’m lucky enough to be in a position where I don’t have to worry about, you know, no place to live or a house or anything.
That said, for the past two years, Lemon has rented a $15,000-a-month two-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom unit at the luxurious 35 Hudson Yards — right next to the CNN quarters at 30 Hudson Yards.
Home features include 13-foot lofted ceilings, French oak floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows. With open spaces, the living room offers a view of the city.
The eat-in kitchen features opal white marble countertops, a built-in coffee machine and a wine fridge.
The master bedroom offers a view of downtown and has two large walk-in closets. The ensuite bathroom features two double sinks, a deep bath and a separate shower room and toilet, a previous mention.
Facilities in the building include a large indoor and outdoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, theater, children’s playground, lounge areas, spa, restaurants, and a rooftop lounge.
The building is also the location of Kendall Roy’s penthouse in “Succession,” played by Jeremy Strong.
Records show that Lemon has been living in the property since June 2021.
The disgraced host, who had also been accused of sexism and diva behavior – he has strongly denied the allegations against him – was seen leaving 35 Hudson Yards on Monday, the day he was fired from CNN.
And even though he rented there after selling his Harlem block for $1.52 million in 2021, Lemon still owns a posh Hamptons home that he bought in 2016.
The now-former anchor shelled out $3.1 million for a four-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Sag Harbor.
Located on a main street, the Federal-style home includes a pool house, outdoor shower, saltwater pool with automatic cover, and an outdoor living area with a pergola and back porch.
The recreational basement spans 3,500 square feet and features a built-in mahogany bar with potential for guest suites.
The main floor includes a sitting room with a gas fireplace, a library, a guest bedroom – and a sun-filled kitchen with Carrera marble countertops, Viking and Sub-Zero appliances. There is an adjoining dining room large enough to seat 10-12 guests.
Lemon still walks away from CNN with at least $25 million — but still has an attorney for a potential legal battle, hiring Los Angeles-based entertainment attorney Bryan Freedman.
The now former co-host of “CNN This Morning,” signed a contract with CNN that runs until 2026.
