Journalist, author and TV personality, anchor of 'Anderson Cooper 360'
6 beds, 5.5 bathrooms, 3,654 square feet on 2.4 acres with a pool
$150,000 for June - Labor Day
If you’re looking for the perfect place to soak up the sun this summer, look no further than Anderson Cooper’s swank Hampton’s home!
Anderson is asking $150,000 for use of his 6 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom home from Memorial Day through Labor Day. If you don’t want to stay all summer, it’ll cost you $30,000 for the month of June, $60,000 for July, or $80,000 to stay from August 1 till Labor Day.
Adding to the value of this gorgeous home, Cooper’s waterfront pad has some serious Hollywood lore – it’s the very same Hamptons compound where the late Budd Schulberg wrote the Academy Award-winning screenplay for the 1950′s Marlon Brando classic, “On the Waterfront.”
Privately located on Aspatuck Creek in the bucolic hamlet of Quiogue and just minutes from downtown Westhampton Beach, the 2.4 acre property was recently completely renovated and decorated by a well-known designer – Anderson’s mom, Gloria Vanderbilt!
The main house features a waterfront great room with built-ins, a brick fireplace, cedar vaulted ceiling and French doors leading to the waterfront patio. There’s also a cozy den with brick fireplace and 60-inch television, a white chef’s kitchen with honed granite counters, and a dining area where you can watch the swans glide by. With a vaulted ceiling with beams and skylights, large walk-in closet, and spacious bath, the master suite provides a special place to retreat. Three additional bedrooms offer space for guests and there’s also an additional apartment above the garage, complete with a living area, bedroom and full bath.
Outside, you’ll find park-like grounds, a 20×40 heated gunite pool with Jacuzzi, and a quaint pool house with full bath and sitting room (or spare sleeping quarters). This is the perfect spot to spend the summer in the Hamptons!

Together for more than 30 years and married for 17, the actor and actress duo have successful, long-running careers
5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 4,566 square feet, pool, gated
$20,000 a month
If you ever wanted two of Hollywood’s most talented actors as your landlords – here’s your chance. The married Academy Award-nominated duo of William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman are looking for someone to lease their Los Angeles home for $20,000 a month.
Purchased by Macy and Huffman for $3,800,000 in December 2012, the home has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 4,566 square feet, a pool and amazing Los Angeles views. Another bonus? You’d could drop your rent check over the fence, because this for-lease place is right next door to the home William and Felicity have lived in since 1998.
Up a very private road, perched on a grassy flat pad with tree-top views, this single level mid-century-style home is the epitome of California living – casual and enticing. The focal point of every room is the sprawling backyard, sparkling swimming pool and panoramic views of Los Angeles. With 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and an attached guest suite, there is plenty of room for entertaining friends.
Macy and Huffman took great care to maintain the original characteristics of the home while undergoing a massive renovation that includes a shiny new kitchen, new bathrooms, a screening room, a separate office suite, a new sauna and spa, and contemporary bamboo and cork floors.
The lease is being represented by Ninkey Dalton of The Agency.

Writer, director and producer, best known for Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice
6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 8,398 square feet
Mega-successful TV writer and producer Shonda Rhimes, of Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and Scandal fame, has another hit on her hands: a brand new $8.8 million-dollar compound in Los Angeles’ Hancock Park neighborhood.
Rhimes closed on the 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 8,398 square foot compound on February 4, 2014 – a mere 9 months after ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ actress Patricia Heaton sold the place in May 2013 for $8 million.
Heaton decamped to a swank $5.4M pad in Toluca Lake, and the buyers of her former home flipped it back on the market with an asking price of $8.99M in November of the same year!
The Italianate Mediterranean gated estate was designed by the famed architect Elmer Grey, which may hint at why this house is so in-demand! On a nearly 50,000 square foot lot, the massive home has lots of room for Rhimes and her 3 young daughters. Inside, the home not only has 6 bedrooms, but it also includes 2 offices and a great bonus room upstairs – a perfect playroom for the girls!
Downstairs, the home has primo living and dining rooms, a chic library and just a what Shonda needs – a family wing with gourmet kitchen, family room overlooking the pool and lush grounds with a paddle tennis court. The property also has a guest house and a screening room over the 4 car garage!
With all those amenities, we dare you to find something this house doesn’t have!
A media mogul in the making, Rhimes not only now owns this $8.8 million-dollar home, but she also owns two other properties in Los Angeles! The first is a 6 bed, 9 bath, 8,292 square foot home she paid $5.6M for in March 2010 and the second is a 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 4,995 square foot pad she paid $1.66M for in July 2007.
Los Angeles, CA
Mega-hot Hollywood actor, formerly married to Scarlett Johansson, currently married to Blake Lively
2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 1,789 square feet
The home was purchased by the actor in October 2007 for $1,715,000. After holding onto the home for nearly 7 years, Reynolds listed the place for sale, so he could close that chapter of his life and be fully invested in his new life in Bedford, NY with new wife Blake Lively.
Not unlike a messy breakup, it took a considerable amount of time for Ryan to be fully untangled from this Los Angeles home. He placed it on the open market in the fall of 2009 with an asking price of $1,900,000. The home wasn’t in as high demand as Ryan Reynolds himself, so he took it off the market six months later.
It came back onto the market in July 2011 with an asking price of $1,690,000. With no movement, Reynolds was forced to chop another $91,000 off, to bring the asking price to $1,599,000. No buyer stepped up, so Reynolds took the home off the market until July 2013, when it popped back onto the market with the same $1,599,000 asking price he was hoping to get in 2011. 2.5 years and another $100,000 price chop later, market conditions worked in Reynold’s favor and he was able to find a buyer willing to pay $1,405,000, and the deal closed on January 4, 2014.
The home’s listing describes it as a “sophisticated Hollywood Hills private home…at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.” The home boasts a private entrance though walled and gated courtyard. Amenities include a newer roof, hardwood floors, solar heating, tank-less water heater and French doors throughout. The 1,789 square feet includes 2 bedrooms, 2.5 remodeled bathrooms, and a cook’s kitchen. The home is ideal for indoor/outdoor living with a gorgeous patio for entertaining and a landscaped yard with walkways overlooking canyon views.
Annie Challis of Keller Williams represented Reynolds as his listing agent.

After living there for more than a decade, Lake listed it in July 2013 for $8,750,000, and it sold on January 24, 2014.
Nestled in a primo location in the heart of affluent Brentwood, the mini-estate has a roster of A-list Hollywood neighbors that includes Maria Shriver, Arianna Huffington, Lindsay Buckingham, Tobey Maguire and Betty White.
In addition to the famous faces living nearby, the home had a lot to offer the unknown buyer. Upon entering the house, an extraordinary great room with soaring wood-beamed ceilings and french doors gives way to an adjacent dining room and formal living room, all with perfect flow, one to the next. Upstairs, Lake’s former master bedroom suite has two fireplaces, a sitting area and radiant heated floors in the master bathroom.
The backyard goes beyond the ordinary, with a lush and private garden and an oversized outdoor covered living room next to a swimming pool and spa.

Los Angeles, CA
comedian, radio personality, television host and actor
4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, pool, bar, gated
$13,500 a month
Always dreamed of having your own in-house dive bar? Well, you’re in luck, because comedian Adam Carolla is now leasing out his funky and unconventional Spanish-style home in Hollywood for $13,500 a month!
Located at 3052 Lake Hollywood Drive, Carolla purchased the 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 5,757 square foot place on April 18, 2003 for $1,630,000.
One of the first homes in the Lake Hollywood area, Carolla’s for-lease abode was built in 1928 and later restored with traditional Spanish-style elements, including arched doorways, leaded glass windows, hand-carved wood beams, chandeliers, tile floors and large courtyards for entertaining.
While it may look like any other Spanish-style home in the neighborhood from the outside, inside, Carolla’s house is anything but ordinary. Downstairs, the house features a large, custom-built entertainment room, complete with a full dive bar and pool table, looking into the pool with glass-view port-holes.
Not stopping there, the house’s custom-built garage is enormous, with room for 10 cars and a hoist. There is also private parking on the grounds for an additional 10-12 cars.
Carolla and his wife Lynette own this high-priced property, but live full-time in nearby La Canada Flintridge, in a home they bought in the summer of 2013 for $2,965,000. Like anyone in LA who’s had any sort of financial success, the Carolla’s also have a Malibu home. They paid $3.6 million for that beach pad in 2007.
Bel Air, CA
Pop diva and her TV presenter husband
7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 11,750 square feet, pool, movie theater, gated
Pop diva Mariah Carey and her TV host husband Nick Cannon are selling their Bel Air mansion for nearly $13 million!
Just listed and first reported by The Real Estalker, the home at 3130 Antelo Road is a gated Hamptons-style estate on an acre of land in primo Bel Air, CA. Carey and Cannon purchased the 7 bedroom, 9 bathroom, 11,750 square foot pad on April 2, 2009 for $6,975,000.
If you’re wondering why Mariah and Nick are asking nearly double what they paid for it, it’s because the estate has been meticulously renovated to bring it up their “Glitter-y” standards. Now, the estate has a grand formal entryway, a master suite comparable to the penthouse in the finest hotels, a formal dining room with a fireplace and breathtaking views, an enormous kitchen and an incredible “Aspen” room that Nick and Mariah use as a den, but can easily accommodate parties of several hundred of your closest friends.
Other A-list amenities inside include a movie theater, basketball court and gym. Outside, the estate has a sprawling backyard with a pool, putting green, and parking for more than 20 cars.
According to property records, the couple still own an oceanfront compound on Windermere Island in the Bahamas and a massive New York City triplex.
This Bel Air home is being listed by Jordana Leigh of Rodeo Realty.
Palo Alto, CA
Apple CEO who succeeded the late, great Steve Jobs
4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2,065 square feet, close to downtown
Just listed for $2,849,000, the 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,065 condo is directly adjacent to the modest abode Tim Cook has lived in since 2010.
A true testament to how small the world of Silicon Valley is, this for-sale condo is owned by Bill Maris, a venture capitalist and managing partner at Google Ventures, Apple’s largest competitor. Maris founded Google Ventures in 2009, and has gone on to make incredibly successful investments in hot tech companies like Nest, Uber and 23andMe.
Property records show that Maris paid $1.98 million for the home in late 2010, which is about the time Cook purchased the unit next door. According to Gawker, the two tech titans coexisted for two years, until 2012, when Maris reportedly moved closer to Google’s Mountain View campus, but maintained this home as a rental.
Located at the end of a private driveway, the Cook-adjacent property is super private, but only steps away from restaurants and shops in bustling downtown Palo Alto. The great room is perfect for entertaining and casual living, and the first floor bedroom could also be used as a den or exercise room. Upstairs, the gorgeous master bedroom suite has large closet.
Cook has deviated from the lifestyle that many of his fellow tech leaders lead. Cook lives relatively modestly, while folks like Elon Musk, Larry Ellison, Mark Zuckerberg and Marissa Mayer all own multiple high-priced properties.

4 bed, 4 bath, 2,664 square feet, duplex
Although they divorced in 2007 after seven years of marriage, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe shared more than just their two beautiful children – they also still owned a pricey Los Angeles investment property together!
Now, that is no more. They just sold their shared duplex for $1,440,000 on January 17, 2014. Purchased by Reese and Ryan in October 2005 for $1,173,500, the divorced duo held onto the two-unit, remodeled property through the real estate market downturn, and then listed it for $1,395,000 in December 2013. 18 days later, the home went under contract for $1,440,000 – a full $45,000 OVER asking. All in all, Reese and Ryan pocketed a nice $266,500 profit on the sale.
That’s a nice turn of events for both Reese and Ryan, who each lost boatloads of cash on recent home sales. Reese just sold the Ojai, CA ranch where she married her new husband, Jim Toth at a major loss! Purchased by Reese for $5.8 million in 2008, she originally asked $10 million for the ranch, reduced the price multiple times, and finally accepted an offer of $4,983,500 – a loss of $816,500! Think that’s a big loss? Ryan lost an eye-popping $1,175,000 when he sold his Zen-inspired Sunset Strip mansion in March 2013.
