Wendy Schmidt has somewhat accepted an open marriage with Google exec Eric Schmidt and he’s taken full advantage of that fact with a $15 million sex penthouse at 31 W. 21st St. The place was used as a crash pad for Shia LaBeouf’s character in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. It features both a private elevator and custom sound proofing. It does not sound creepy at all.
“While everyone in New York wants a doorman, Eric specifically said he didn’t want one. He doesn’t want anyone to see him and his guests coming in and out. He insisted on his own elevator.”
Schmidt has also spent millions getting the 6,250-square-foot duplex — which has four bedrooms and a large entertainment area with a wet bar opening onto a 3,300-square-foot terrace — soundproofed, claiming he “doesn’t sleep well,” but also affording him complete privacy.
Eric has been seen around New York with Lisa Shields, an executive on the Council on Foreign Regulations and Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen, a Vietnamese pianist. Who he hasn’t been seen around New York with is his wife, Wendy, who lives in their $23 million waterfront mansion in Massachusetts where she focuses on her philanthropic work while Eric Schmidt bangs a bunch of chicks in his silent apartment where no one can hear them scream.
