Billy Joel’s Home: A $15 Million Mansion Now For Sale:Singer and songwriter Billy Joel has done fairly well for himself over a career spanning almost 50 years in the music industry. But maybe things aren’t going as well as they seem for Mr. Joel – unless he has another reason for selling his palatial Miami estate for just under $15 million. There’s no word yet on exactly why Joel is deciding to move out – maybe it was an altercation with his neighbors Cher or Lil Wayne? Anyway, Joel bought the house back in 2006 for $13.5 million, so at least he isn’t taking a loss. Here are some pictures of the 8,881 square-foot mansion, right on the ocean. Maybe you want to put in a bid?
Khloe Kardashian’s Home: Khloe Takes a $7,500 Rental and Nixes the Cameras:The Kardashians are like a fungus. They just keep growing and growing, everywhere, all over our pop culture lives. Every reality show they appear in spawns a spin-off, or a sequel, or very special – special, and the entire family continues to do next to nothing and get paid heaps of money for it. Khloe Kardashian, the middle child in the Kardashian brood, first leapt into the public eye appearing on the reality show that started it all, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. Her appearance on that popular reality series, led to appearing in “Khloe and Kim Take Miami”, and most recently, “Khloe and Lamar”, the reality series about her life with husband, Lamar Odom, of the Dallas Mavericks. In addition to her various shows, she has parlayed her reality career into multiple businesses, radio gigs, and the occasional modeling job. However, recently, in a decided about face from the rest of her family, she and Mr. Odom have decided they are no longer interested in being in front of the camera and have axed their reality series. They both point to a need to focus on their lives (see Mr. Odom’s disastrous season with the Mavericks), and some private time. This private time apparently includes the rental of a massive condo in Dallas nearer her husband’s new team. The $7,500 per month, two-bedroom, two-bath condo with stunning views, is located in the W Dallas Victory Hotel and Residences, a short walk from the American Airlines Arena. The W has multiple upscale amenities, including two fitness centers, a zero-edge infinity pool, a private entertainment room, a spa by Bliss, and room service for all residents, whether they are in the residences or the hotel. It is a ridiculously swanky place, and for a rental, you can’t really ask for more.
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):
