For more than a week we had been reporting that The Three Stooges was filming at 490 West Paces Ferry in Atlanta, but little did we know at the time, the house also has ties to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Come to find out, the house (which is really more of a mansion) is owned by developer Lee Najjar, better known to RHOA fans as Kim’s ex, BIG POPPA! He apparently no longer lives in the home, which features nine-bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 7 kitchens, 2 gyms, a ballroom, a recording studio, a hair/nail salon, a cigar room, a theater and a pool, and currently has it listed for the firesale price of $19.9 million. Guess Kim wasn’t kidding when she would brag about how rich Big Poppa is!

But, the cast and crew have moved on and are now filming on Peachtree St, near the Margaret Mitchell House. Crews began building storefront facades on Peachtree early last week though filming didn’t actually begin at the location until Wednesday.
Yesterday they shot a scene where Hayes was wearing a sandwich board and apparently, at some point, one of the stooges got hit by a bus too. In this update of the classic series, Chris Diamantopoulos plays Moe, Hayes plays Larry, and Sasso is Curly.
You can see the set being constructed and three actors shooting a scene in the photos below, which were sent to us by one of our readers, Mark. You can also see the three actors in “action” in the YouTube video at the bottom of the post.
