Marion Jones

Sells Tiny TX House...

Buys Not-So-Tiny House

EXCLUSIVE

0810_marion_jones_house_launchThings are looking up for Marion Jones -- who was infamously stripped of her Olympic gold medals -- because she just traded in her humble Texas home ... for a much nicer version.

In case you didn't already know ... in 2007 Marion -- who was considered a LEGEND in Track & Field -- copped to using steroids throughout her career and as a result was stripped of her medals, lucrative endorsement deals, and thrown in jail on charges of perjury.

But all that's behind her ... Marion and her husband just sold their modest 2,173-square-foot home ... and traded up to a much nicer 3,156-square-foot pad with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths ... all for a cool $212k.

With her new crib -- which is just a few miles from the old one -- comes a wooded deck ... 3 living rooms ... a huge master bedroom and a giant back yard where she can run around .

Ya know ... 'cause she's a runner.

Properties in Texas are cheap. I have family there and an apartment with two bedrooms is 300 where in Cali its 4xs more. She got a bargain.

Looks ordinary because it's a house they can afford, not a mansion that they'll have to sell for a loss down the road. Being smart with your money is a win.

Who in the hell is Marion Jones? Am I the only one that doesn't know and doesn't care?

You guys must really be hurting for website fillers! Waste of time and a bad reflection on TMZ. Is this all you've got?

Should've kept the old house cause five years from now, they'll be filing for bankruptcy.

I'm glad SHE has money to buy a house, unlike all those people who should have had gold medals and endorsement deals, but didn't because she cheated them out of gold...

How does Marion earn a living? is there a big demand for washed up track stars that used drugs and spent time in prison?
