Shannon Donnelly, the long-time society columnist for the Palm Beach Daily News, has bought her first property after more than 20 years in the area.

According to records, the perennial gala head-table guest plunked down $112,500 for a 1,000-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo on the seventh floor of the aging Portofino South in West Palm Beach.

It’s far cry from the $12.2 million-, 20,000-square-foot mansions that those who fear her columns in the so-called Shiny Sheet inhabit.

But the 58-year-old Donnelly now has a place she can really call home.

And she must’ve come into some money recently.

Records show Donnelly put down $28,125 on the condo, and mortgaged $84,375.

Earlier this year, she settled a lawsuit against a plastic surgeon she called “a butcher.”

After undergoing what was supposed to be a relatively simple procedure to make her face look younger, Donnelly ended up in the emergency room with near fatal internal bleeding.

The details of the settlement, reached in February, were not made public.

Then in July, Donnelly’s 76-year-old husband died in Newport, R.I.

She did not reply to an email asking for comment about her purchase.

      Why do you think this is funny, Maggie? It’s hideous and mean-spirited. Both you and Jose are apparently awful people.

    This reaches a new low in being snide and mean-spirited. So her condo isn’t the size of those in Palm Beach … Who cares? As long as she enjoys it, then all’s well, right?

    money, only makes a financial statement ,which in the course of a person’s life can go up or down, happiness is what makes a home,without that your life has a zero balance.
