All four members changed their minds after hearing from a penitent Nazarian, promising to address any addiction issues he may have and to take time off from running his sprawling hospitality empire."I'm taking off from SBE as a whole," said the 39-year-old billionaire, referring to the company he runs.

Nazarian was an invited speaker to the popular Iranian-American event "Passing the Torch of Success" in 2009.

The marble-countered center island kitchen will easily accommodate two private chefs and opens one on side to an octagonal breakfast room and on another to a family room with fireplace and backyard access through French doors.
