Jennifer Aniston reportedly paid $21 million for this ultra modern Bel Air, CA home:A-List actress Jennifer Aniston reportedly paid $21 million for this ultramodern Bel Air, CA home. Looks like it's time to update the Celebrity Real Estate Heat Map: A-lister of A-listers Jennifer Aniston has reportedly scooped up new mansion for herself in Bel-Air, Calif. The pristine 8,500-square-foot four-bedroom was designed in 1965 by noted Los Angeles modernist architect A. Quincy Jones; after first hitting the market for $29 million in 2008, the house was reduced to some $24 million, at which point Aniston swooped in and scored it for even less: $21 million. The pool looks elegant and modern in keeping with home's overall style. And as if this lucky lady didn't already have enough of them, here are yet some more perks: more than three acres of land, views of the city and ocean, a pool, a guesthouse, a cellar, andlast but certainly not leasta vineyard. Let's not forget to look inside: those distinctly midcentury-feeling interiors boasts gleaming wood floors, full-wall expanses of glass, and some pretty stunning fireplace detail. The living room comes with a lovely view of west Los Angeles. Aniston's had quite an impressive year in terms of real estate. The actress listed and then sold her spectacular Ohana estate, a Beverly Hills beaut that was once featured on the cover of Architectural Digest. She swiftly found another Beverly Hills estate in which to shack up with new beau Justin Theroux. Let's not forget her East Coast accommodations, either: her new SoCal new pad is located just a plane ride away from her nest overlooking Gramercy Park. In short: life looks pretty fine when you're her.
Megan Fox’s Home: A Smokin’ Hot $3 Million Mansion and a Cooling Career:Megan Fox was everywhere for a hot minute. Touted as the new Angelina Jolie, the beautiful actress appeared in a string of high-profile movies, on the cover of multiple magazines, and it was nearly impossible to turn on the television or go online without seeing yet another story about her. She was the “It Girl” in Hollywood, and though she had been appearing on television since the early 2000’s, it was her performance in, “Transformers” in 2007 that finally made people stand up and take notice. The next few years were golden, and she became a household name worldwide. Then came her firing from the “Transformers” franchise, and the one-two punch of “Jonah Hex” and “Passion Play”, the worst reviewed films of 2010 and 2011 respectively, and suddenly, Ms. Fox’s star was not quite so shiny anymore. Recently, as her acting career has slowed a bit, she has been making the occasional headline for wearing the same skirt as another actress, or for making yet another verbal faux pas when complaining about some aspect of being a Hollywood starlet. Before her tiny career meltdown, while she was still basking in the success of the second “Transformers” film and her first headlining role in “Jennifer’s Body”, she purchased a brand new home in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The 5,200 square foot, $2,945,200 home, is made up of four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The house overlooks downtown Los Angeles, and comes complete with a massive living room, multiple fireplaces, a master bedroom with its own spa, private terrace, and walk-in closet, a dining room, family room, media and pool room, a terrace that runs the length of the house, a ridiculously luxurious kitchen, a swimming pool, hardwood floors, and whole-house audio. Though Ms. Fox seems to have trouble picking her roles (and her words), she clearly has no trouble picking high-end real estate.
LeBron James kisses The Larry O'Brien NBA championship trophy and the Russell MVP award:LeBron James had won his championship at 27 years old on Thursday night, just as Michael Jordan had won his first championship at 27. James didn't have three years at North Carolina under Dean Smith, nor did he have a childhood as traditional – perhaps even functional – as Jordan's. When James had a chance to frame his championship chase into the context of those before him, including M.J., James resisted. "It was a journey for myself," he said. "I don't want to compare it to any other player. Everything that went with me being a high school prodigy when I was 16 and on the cover of Sports Illustrated to being drafted and having to be the face of a franchise; everything that came with it. I had to deal with it, and I had to learn through it. "No one had [gone] through that journey, so I had to learn on my own. Everything that came with it, I had to basically figure it out on my own." And then, James would say: "I'm a champion, and I did it the right way. I didn't shortcut anything." The words of Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert still were on his mind, almost a flinching out of James for the next wave of criticism that perhaps he feared would be thrust his way. Over and over, wherever his thoughts would go in the aftermath of this spectacular NBA Finals performance of 28.6 points, 10.2 rebounds and 7.2 assists, James punctuated his sentences with, "I'm a champion now." For him, it is the kicker to every answer now, and that Finals failure a season ago makes it harder for people to completely dismiss James and the Heat as the big, bad bully who ganged up on everyone else. James needed Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, but they needed him a lot more for a championship. As it turned out, Wade wasn't a co-chair on this partnership, but a sidekick. In this NBA, no one wins a title without a superstar, and All-Stars in the supporting cast. That's been true for the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks in these past several years, and that was true for the Heat, too. NBA championship team paid for winning the championship According to the Wages of Win Journal, the payout for a championship win is a little trickier to calculate. Player salaries are all paid out in the regular season and bonuses are paid to each team during the post-season. The winning team of the NBA Finals takes home $1.77M split amongst all the players and coaching staff. WOW did the math and found that, assuming the winner sweeps every series and plays only 16 games, they get only $9,342 (versus around $50k in the regular season on average) if it was split across the players alone.
