(Newser) – Donald Trump won't be buying Ed McMahon's home after all, the AP reports. An anonymous buyer has made a deal to purchase the longtime Carson sidekick's foreclosure-threatened home. Trump had made an offer on the multi-million dollar Beverly Hills house after it became known that the 85-year-old McMahon was about to lose his home, having fallen $644,000 in arrears.
