Mary Wilson lives in a Las Vegas home built for a queen — or in her case, a Supreme! The founding member of the biggest girl group of the ’60s exclusively opens up her house to Closer Weekly in the new issue!
Mary’s favorite part of her home? Her gigantic walk-in closet designed so she can escape to “a glamorous room with all my gowns and hairpieces.”
The wide-open loft is complete with a dressing room and plenty of shelves to accommodate her gowns, shoes and wigs. “I hang out in my closet,” Mary tells Closer. “It’s more than 17 feet long!”
Inside, Mary has a few gowns displayed, including dresses from her days as a Supreme. “I don’t even wear half of my gowns. But they’re gorgeous to look at! I have 50 in a [traveling] exhibit, “Come See About Me: The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection,” and lots more!”
Years after her success, Mary still has famous fans fawning over her and the success of The Supremes. At the LA premiere of the film Dreamgirls, Beyoncé told Mary, “If it wasn’t for you and The Supremes, Destiny’s Child wouldn’t have had the success that we’ve had.”
And Mary tells Closer that she recently met up with Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora. “He was extremely charming,” she tells the mag. “And said he was going to write a song for me!”
