$49.5M Hamptons Estate Does Double Duty as Marriage Magnet

Months ago, posh Hamptons habitues wondered who could have rented the gargantuan Sandscastle estate, listed to sell at $49.5 million, for a record $500,000 -- and for just two precious summer weeks.

Last week, the New York Post revealed the answer: divorced, self-made millionaire and Tampa, Fla.-resident Cheryl Mercuris. And she wasn't just wanting to live the East End life for two weeks, she's hoping for something in particular: Love.

Wonder if skeptical New Yorkers can believe it?
