Well, the name isn't completely made up. 'tunt' is just a stand in name for 'Vanderbilt'. There definitely was a Cornelius Vanderbilt, George Washington Vanderbilt, and of coarse, the Biltmore House. The Biltmore Estate is now taken care of by the Cecil family (which, was used as the first name of Cheryl's brother.)
Do I know too much about this? Perhaps.
