Simon Cowell personal tanning salon at his $22 million mansion:The American Idol judge, Simon Cowell, who is known for his extravagant lifestyle, has recently got a personal tanning salon built in his 22 million dollar mansion so he can maintain the perfect bronzed appearance, the London Daily Mail reports. Cowell, who is worth 188 million dollars, bought the property for $12 million nearly two years ago but razed the original structure to build his €œdream home€. Since then, Cowell has been busy renovating the two-storey mansion, and the most recent change in the mansion happens to be the installation of a solarium adjacent to the master bedroom with a full-length tanning machine and a smaller facial tanner.
Hayden Panettiere $2.635 Million Hollywood Hills House shows She does Actually Have Good Taste:At $2.635 million, the 3,120 square foot, three-bedroom, three-bath house was quite the investment. With floor-to-ceiling windows, an office, a laundry room, a large open living room, a family room, multiple fireplaces, gorgeous views from just about every window, a wrap-around deck, a swimming pool, a completely renovated kitchen, and a massive master bedroom, Ms. Panettiere's choice for a first home definitely showed signs of a well-developed sense of taste. Being singled out for bad fashion choices, however, is not such a great reason to top the headlines. Hayden Panettiere, has, unfortunately, recently joined the ranks of the latter group. The generally well-dressed and attractive actress recently made the front page when she wore what could only be described as a €˜matronly' dress to a film premiere. While her fashion choice did not win her any points, her taste in homes has been much better. In 2008, at the tender age of 18, she purchased a large home in the Hollywood Hills on the heels of her success on the television show, €œHeroes€. The home was a bold purchase for a late-teens actress, and indicated a desire to set herself apart from the rest of the young stars vying for attention in 2008. There are many things for which a starlet wants to make headlines. Winning a major acting honor is one. Landing a high-profile role is another. Signing with the most popular agent, being seen on the arm of the right single celebrity, or receiving an invitation to an A-list party, also rank up there as good reasons to be on the front page of gossip magazines or at the top of celebrity news websites.
Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson house on the market with a $3,650,000 price tag:Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds finalized their divorce last summer, and now they're parting ways with their former home in L.A., too. The Buff and Hensman-designed €œWong House€ was built in 1969 in the Los Feliz hills. They paid $2.9 million, €œtotally restored and upgraded€ the house, and are now selling it for $3.65 million. Take a look! Newly released listing pographssnapped in a glittering, city-view twilightshow the 2 bedroom and 3 bathroom post and beam abode has been altered little (if at all) since the former couple bought it in August 2010. The long sweep of glass-walled and sparsely furnished rooms along the back of the housethe living room, kitchen, dining area and family roomcontain a smattering of not particularly impressive but no doubt punishingly pricey mid-century modern(ish) things that include a teak credenza or two, a couple of classic Barcelona lounge chairs, a glass topped dining table surrounded by some Danish-looking teak chairs with black leather seats, and a pair of tufted leather bar stools in the kitchen area that look to Your Mama like they could have come straight out of The Dresden Room, an old school restaurant/bar-lounge in Los Feliz where the dee-voon sequin-clad duo Marty and Elayne have been warbling and working their high-camp stuff since the dawn of time. I thought it was kind of sad when they split. They seemed like a cute couple. She has since dated Sean Penn, of all people (didn't see that coming) and he's now being linked to Blake Lively of Gossip Girl. There aren't many pos in the listing, so some of these are from when it was on the market before. Here's how that living room looked when they bought it (from the old MLS pos):
