Gordon Ramsey’s House: A Calming $6.75 Million Retreat for the Notoriously Angry Chef:Chef Gordon Ramsey has a larger than life personality and makes “to-die-for” food. At least that is what the people who can actually get a seat in, and afford, a meal at one of his many restaurants say. His multiple cooking competition shows have made him a household name in areas where his food is not available. His penchant for basically verbally abusing anyone who stands within eight feet of him in the kitchen has rocketed him from merely well known, into the realm of cultural icon. From swearing so much on television that he received citations from review boards in the UK and Australia, to engaging in multiple sparring matches with other chefs and celebrities across various programs, to admitting to serving meat to vegetarians at his restaurants, Gordon Ramsey has built quite a reputation for himself outside of the kitchen, as well as in it. After throwing the famed restaurant critic, A.A. Gill, out of one of his restaurants, the critic wrote, “Ramsay is a wonderful chef, just a really second-rate human being.” Luckily for his family, Gordon Ramsey’s house does not reflect his “bulldog-ish” personality. Gordon Ramsey’s house, purchased in January of this year, cost $6.75 million, a paltry sum for someone who has several successful restaurants, and seven different realities show running. Located in the posh community of Bel-Air in Los Angeles, the 7,413 square foot property is comprised of five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a massive kitchen with all new features, high ceilings, and multiple communal spaces. The house sits on an acre of land and also includes a large terrace, a stunning infinity pool, a large lawn, and lots of sunlight. In other words, Gordon Ramsey’s home is far more cheerful than the chef ever is on any of his shows. He recently left a charity football (soccer) game on a stretcher, after a decidedly nasty tackle by a former professional player. Many people believe the tackle was purely meant to take the mouthy celebrity down a peg.

Arnold Schwarzenegger made a $65000 down payment on a house for his ex-housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena:Arnold Schwarzenegger made a $65,000 down payment on a house for his ex-housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena less than a year before he admitted to fathering her child. According to loan doents, Arnold made the "gift" payments in two installments from his own personal bank account one for $5,000 in April 2010 and one for $60,000 in May 2010. According to the docs, the money was used to secure a loan for Patty's house in Bakersfield, CA -- where she currently lives with Arnold's 13-year-old love child. The purchase price of the house was $268,000 -- so Arnold's down payment covered nearly a quarter of the total cost.
