Los Angeles, CA
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.

"The Fast and the Furious" actress who has also appeared on hit TV show 'Chuck' and started her career on soap operas
3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2,868 square feet, pool, once owned by Ellen Degeneres
‘The Fast and the Furious’ actress Jordana Brewster is selling her stunning Hollywood home for $3,795,000.
Property records show that the Brazilian-American actress paid $3,375,000 for the 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2,868 square foot architectural stunner in March 2011.
Long before Brewster called the place home, Ellen DeGeneres walked the halls of this house after she purchased it on June 11, 1999 for $1,700,000. In typical Ellen Degeneres fashion, she quickly grew tired of the home and and sold it on February 8, 2002 for $1,930,000. Ellen has since moved up in the real estate world and currently resides in a home called “the best home in Los Angeles” that she paid nearly $40 million for.
Brewster’s for-sale home is a private and sophisticated architectural retreat in a prime Sunset Strip location. Situated all on one level, the wonderful open floor plan features 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a den, and gorgeous screening room. Walls of glass open onto lush terraced gardens, and nearby, you’ll find a pool, spa, and an outdoor kitchen and dining area.
Perfect for its multiple celebrity owners, this home is gated for maximum privacy.

Purple-haired daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, current host of E! Fashion Police
1 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,250 square feet, views
The reason for selling? We’re guessing Kelly wants to start fresh in a new house. The E! Fashion Police co-host just split from fiance Matthew Mosshart in January 2014, after meeting at Kate Moss’ 2011 wedding and dating for two years.
Now that Kelly’s newly single and in the midst of a booming career, she’s selling the 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,250 square foot home she purchased on February 16, 2005. Property records show she paid $1,195,000 for the place 9 years ago.
Designed by Robert Byrd in 1952, Kelly’s home is beautifully detailed throughout and completed updated. With oodles of windows, the home has wonderful light and views.
The kitchen is outfitted in the best appliances on the market and the adjacent living area and separate den open onto a lush private garden with chic entertaining areas.
Reports from summer 2013 say that Kelly hasn’t lived at this home in a few months. She reportedly moved into Lindsey Lohan’s former Beverly Hills rental in April 2013, paying $10,400 a month!
Jonah Wilson of Hilton Hyland is Kelly’s listing agent.

Action adventure actor known for his roles in Fantastic Four, The Avengers and Captain America
3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2,386 square feet
Located at 2971 Briar Knoll Drive, the hunky ‘Avengers’ actor paid $1,260,000 in March 2007 for the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,386 square foot pad.
Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, Evan’s for-sale home has an open and spacious living room and dining room with hardwood floors throughout, vaulted beamed ceilings and tree top views. A gourmet kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances and the master suite has french doors leading to a private deck with seating area, private spa, and luscious landscaping.

Evans will reappear on the silver screen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, set to be released in April 2014. In 2015, he’ll appear in the highly-anticipated sequel to the The Avengers, titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, where Evans will reprise his role as Captain America.

Toni Braxton is proof that you can start anew!
Six months after the singer and star of the reality TV show, “Braxton Family Values,” emerged from her second bout with bankruptcy, she put down close to $3 million on a new Calabasas crib adjacent to Justin Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian.
According to reports, Braxton is the proud new owner of a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 5,323 square foot home in the exclusive and celebrity-infested “The Oaks” neighborhood.

Adjacent, a magnificent chef’s kitchen has Sub Zero and Wolf stainless appliances, granite counters and elaborate tile work and custom cabinetry.

Procreating Kardashian sister and her longtime boyfriend
6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 11,746 square feet, pool, pop star neighbor
Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick have just purchased the Calabasas estate of former NFL star wide receiver and current ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson.
Located just down the street from troubled pop star Justin Bieber, Johnson had a much-publicized feud with Justin after he was caught speeding uncontrollably in his white Ferrari through their residential neighborhood while young children played in the streets.
Originally listed and then delisted in 2011, the home popped back onto the market for December 2012 for $10.5 million. As Johnson’s issues with Bieber started to escalate, the asking price on his home started to drop. By February 2013, he’d chopped another $1.6 million off asking, but still couldn’t find a buyer. With his unruly neighbor continuing to cause him grief, Johnson decided to reduce the price yet again – slicing $400k off – bringing the home to $8.495 million. At that price, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick swooped in and took the incredible home off Johnson’s hands.
Unruly pop star neighbor aside, Kourtney and Scott’s new house is a custom gem in the celebrity-infested Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas. Nestled inside the gated “Estates at the Oaks” community, the home sits on a huge 1.86 acre lot that boasts views and privacy. Inside, 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms are also joined by a chef’s kitchen, game and children’s play room, spa, sauna, elevator and theater.
The grounds of the estate include covered patios with an outdoor fireplace, sunken basketball/sports court, a pool with spa and expansive rolling lawns.
At 11,746 square feet, Kourtney is getting her wish for a new home: lots and lots of space. “Our family is bigger…I’d like to have a guest room and more space outside for the kids,” Kourtney told Domaine.com when she listed her much smaller home in Calabasas for $3,499,000.
Khloe and Lamar gained notoriety via reality TV; Kaley Cuoco's been a TV star for many years
7 bedrooms, 9 bedrooms, 8,347 square feet, pool, gated
Khloe Kardashian is getting her fresh start, thanks to ‘Big Bang Theory’ star Kaley Cuoco, who reportedly just paid full price for the Tarzana, CA home that Khloe once shared with soon-to-be-ex-husband Lamar Odom.
Listed for $5,499,000, Khloe and Lamar’s former home is a guard-gated Mulholland Park custom-built home located at the end of a private enclave cul-de-sac. Huge grassy lawns and a dramatic entry courtyard make a great first impression as you pull up to the home. Inside, a dramatic entryway leads to luxe living spaces that include 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, stone floors, a theater.
Outside, Khloe and Lamar’s former home has an outdoor kitchen with 2 refrigerators, a bbq bit, covered cabanas and a pool and spa.
Khloe and Lamar nested here in happier times, before Lamar’s alleged drug use forced Khloe to file for divorce in December, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Kaley Cuoco and her new husband Ryan Sweeting are ignoring the bad juju inside the manse and are hoping to turn the gorgeous home back into in a love nest. The duo married this past New Years Eve, after just a few months of dating.
Kaley also owns a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 5,233 square foot estate in Sherman Oaks, California that she purchased on November 19, 2010 for $2,400,000.

Procreating Kardashian sister and her longtime boyfriend
4 bed, 5 bath, 5,199 square feet, pool
The 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 5,199 square foot Colonial-style abode on Prado De Las Peras in Calabasas was purchased by Kardashian on December 3, 2010 for $1,700,000. Kourtney and interior designer Jeff Andrews have spent months meticulously decorating the home in a style that longtime boyfriend Scott Disick describes as “Alice in Wonderland meets Beetlejuice.”
Parting with the home will be tough for Kourtney, who told Domaine.com that she loves “every single thing about this house, but I’m excited to take on a new project.”
First on their list for their next home: space. “Our family is bigger since we moved in,” Kourtney told Domaine.com. “I’d like to have a guest room and more space outside for the kids.”
Kourtney and Scott have already been spotted house hunting for their next ‘home sweet home.’ In September 2013, the duo were spotted checking out a 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 7,478 square feet estate in Hidden Hills with a price tag of $6,495,000!
