Miami Heat victory party at LIV: LeBron, D-Wade, Bosh and Co. rack up $200,000 bar tab in all-night bash:That's what the Dallas Mavericks did last year after clinching the O'Brien at the AmericanAirlines Arena, with Dirk Nowitzki and company hammering down a monster magnum of Ace of Spades champagne en route to ringing up a $110,000 bar tab, happily paid by victorious Mavs owner Mark Cuban. On Thursday night — and, really Friday morning the Miami Heat washed away the agony of that defeat and threw themselves whole-hog into the thrill of victory, taking over LIV and casting aside Cuban's credit-card bill like it was a receipt for your airport sandwich. The Heat reportedly dropped (at least) $200,000 on their post-Finals victory party, an all-night rager that reportedly cost a stack to enter and featured surprise performances, dancing women twirling flaming sticks, carbon dioxide guns and an awful lot of your favorite hip-hop classics (read: the four songs on the radio now). That's an especially staggering sum when you consider that they've got seven more of these to cover. Shortly after 2:30 a.m. players began arriving and filling up the main stage at LIV which had been turned into a massive VIP area reserved just for the Heat. Along with Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Joel Anthony, Shane Battier, Norris Cole, Juwan Howard and others, the Heat filled the area to capacity. (Bosh was the last to arrive at 4:30 a.m.). LIV had to close its doors to the public by 3 a.m. once the team had arrived, already nearing capacity, and then it was time to pop bottles of champagne — an estimated tab of over $200,000 — including the legendary Ace of Spades super magnum-sized champagne (we're talking 15 liters of bubbly, people, with a sticker price of $75K). Heat owner Mickey Arison and coach Eric Spoelstra also stopped by to celebrate. Wade wore a t-shirt that read "Team No Sleep", and James, who wore a t-shirt adorned with a vampire version of his face, eventually took to the microphone and attempted to sing to the crowd. Several players took turns shooting the CO2 guns and filling the room with "White Hot' smoke.
Charlize Theron’s Home: Putting Her Past Behind Her for a $3 Million Profit:Charlize Theron is one that rare type of actress with gorgeous looks, a stellar career, and a noticeably down-to-earth personality. She has multiple high profile movies coming out this year, including “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Prometheus”. After a harrowing childhood in South Africa, she relocated to the United States, and took advantage of every opportunity that came her way. She is highly sought after as an actress and model, and directors and other actors often list her as one of their favorite parts of the projects on which they work. She is, in essence, the cool, popular girl that hangs out with both the geeks and the jocks, seemingly unaware of their adoration. Until recently, she has also always been in a relationship. A collective gasp went up in Hollywood when she, and her boyfriend of nine years, Stuart Townsend, called it quits. They were considered one of the more stable relationships in Tinseltown. However, this gasp was quickly redirected when it became clear that their separation would mean a couple of prime pieces of real estate were going to become available. The Oscar-winning actress owned a few properties with her former beau, and in typical post-relationship fashion, selling them off so that she could move on physically and emotionally, became a top priority. Her Malibu cottage was one of the first homes to go. She purchased the 2,095 square foot, three-bedroom, three and half-bath house, to serve as a beachfront getaway, in 2003. The home, which is nothing particularly special on the outside, is quite attractive on the inside, and features high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, a massive kitchen, a wrap-around terrace, and stunning views of the nearby ocean and beach. Purchased for $3.495 million, it sold in 2011 to Ryan Murphy of “Glee” fame, for just over $6.5 million. As not much had changed about the property since Ms. Theron’s original purchase, one can only assume that the price increase was due to the fact that the rare beauty had lived there.
