If Beyoncé still wants this deeply discounted Piney Point Village mansion for her mother, she might have to bring back Sasha Fierce and grab a paddle: It’s going up on February 19 for auction. The 21,640-sq.-ft., 4-kitchen rental property near Briar Forest was listed as recently as January 3 at $5.9 million — and, says the website of California-based auction house Premier Estates, that’s just where bids will start.

But it’ll cost you no less than $50,000 to get in on the fun. In 2007, divorcing owners Doug and Melanie Johnson listed the 8-bedroom 11682 Arrowwood house for sale. Given control of the sale, the cash-strapped local-teevee mogul set the price at $19.9 million. In 2009, Melanie went back to court to get control of the sale; incremental adjustments have since brought the price all the way down to $5.9 million. Most recently, the house has been available as a $25,000-a-week vacation getaway, rented by the likes of rapper Wiz Khalifa for Thanksgiving dinner — and, it was rumored, Michael Jordan. Who could blame them? Get a load of the — uh, luxury:
