Lingerie mogul and 'Space Balls' actress Rhonda Shear is selling her St. Pete home

Rhonda Shear, known as the host of "USA Up All Night," a massively successful lingerie company, and quite a few notable roles in the '80s, including one line in "Space Balls," is selling her Snell Isle Mediterranean-style home in St. Petersburg.

Located at 2020 Brightwaters Blvd. NE, the waterfront home was built in 1995, and is nicknamed "Casa de Palm Ahh," after Shear's wildly successful Ahh Bra line. Featuring five-bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms, the 9,722-square-foot homes comes with a heated saltwater pool and spa, a deepwater dock, a ballroom, three powder rooms, a 2,000-pound capacity elevator, a gym, a theater, a billiards room and more. 

"Each room is uniquely interesting and eclectic and part of our personality,” said Shear in a 2018 interview with Dupont Registry. “We’ve repurposed the three bedrooms and rooms in unique ways.”

“For example, we created a complete art deco home entertainment theater. Local artist Jeff Walling painted art deco canvases of old movie posters and the Hollywood sign covers a window like a black out shade. With eight leather chairs and state-of-the-art sound system, it’s where everyone wants to hang out,” added Shear.

Besides ordering the "Lunafish" at Gus' Galaxy Grill in "Space Balls," Shear also played the neighbor in "Married ... With Children," and also had appearances in "A-Team," "Dallas," "Chips," "Dukes of Hazard," "Full House," "Silk Stalkings" and "Happy Days."

"Casa de Palm Ahh," which is just down the street from the massive Bill Edwards compound, is currently asking $9,030,000 and the listing agent is Chuck Anderson of Keller Williams Gulf Beaches.
