    Rosie O’Donnell may be a rich and famous talk show host, but she’s also becoming proficient in the art of the house flip. After selling her Chicago brownstone for a slight loss after less than a year of ownership, Rosie is going for a big profit in New York City, where she recently listed her duplex penthouse for $10.95M. Rosie paid $8M for the 4 bedroom, 3 bath home, so if she gets full asking on the luxe penthouse, she’ll walk away with almost $3M in profit – more than enough to cover her losses from the Chicago sale.

    She may already even have a buyer, as almost-bilionaire designer and “Project Runway” judge Michael Kors was spotted touring the home. According to the New York Post, Kors is on a feverish hunt for a new property in New York City, and he seemed to love Rosie’s pad. Will he make an offer and take it off O’Donnell’s hands? Time will tell on that one.

    The penthouse apartment sits atop a converted hospital building in Greenwich Village that has been updated with every possible amenity. O’Donnell’s for-sale unit has a spacious living and dining room that transitions onto an expansive 429 square feet private terrace offering North and South city views. The penthouse also has a large chefs kitchen and an oversized master suite that features a large windowed walk-in closet and a luxurious master bath. Building amenities include 24 hour doorman and concierge, fitness center and rooftop garden.

    The Post reports that “Rosie loved the apartment but needs more space…she’s selling the 12th Street place because she ‘prefers suburban life.'”

    She also recently sold her $16M property on Miami’s Star Island.

    Dennis Mangone of Douglas Elliman is Rosie’s listing agent.

      When Jeremy Renner isn’t killing bad guys in action movies, he tries his hand at flipping houses. Turns out that the Academy Award-nominated “Hurt Locker” actor has some serious real estate skills. After 6 months on the market, there is now a “Sale Pending” sign hanging on his latest project, an Art Deco-style home in the ritzy Beverly Hills enclave of Holmby Hills.

      Dubbed “The Reserve,” Renner’s flip at 107 N Delfern Drive was purchased by the actor and his business partners in 2010 for $7 million. Over the past three years, the home has been rebuilt by architect Philip Vertoch and designed by Renner’s partner Kristoffer Winters.

      Renner and his partners were asking $24,950,000 for the high-priced flip. Now under contract, we’ll have to wait and see what the final sales price clocks in at. The yet-to-be-indentified buyer will soon come home to 2 lush and layered acres that house a single story home featuring over 10,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, a cobblestone driveway, pool, spa, home theater, 14′ ceilings and much more.

      Rayni Romito of Hilton & Hyland holds the listing.

        Glee starlet Naya Rivera has flipped her home in Beverly Hills, making nearly half a million dollars along the way.  She paid $1.475 million for the Beverly Hills Post Office-area home on April 4, 2012 and just told it for $1,930,000. This kind of return isn’t common in every market, but in this celebrity-infested Beverly Hills neighborhood, buyers pay big bucks for the 90210 zip code!

        Rivera made her house flip a family affair – she employed her mother Yolanda Rivera as the listing agent on the home.  Nice work, mom!

        Rivera’s just-sold home is on a cul-de-sac and has been remodeled and features 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms spread out over 3,300 square feet.  The home includes a formal living area and dining room overlooking the courtyard and pool. The library includes a wet bar with its own kegerator! The master suite includes dual walk-in closets and a built-in sauna and steam room. The backyard includes a completely remodeled salt water pool, jacuzzi and fire pit.

        Rivera recently decamped to a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 4,186 square foot East Coast traditional estate in Los Feliz that property records show she purchased on April 15, 2013 for $2,600,000.

          International real estate mogul Christian Candy is selling the penthouse at the famed Plaza hotel for $59 million. The Monaco-based Christian bought the penthouse for $25.9 million last year, and after some massive upgrades, he flipped the one-of-a-kind property back on the market with a $59 million price tag.

          This isn’t a one-off deal for Christian. He and his brother Nick Candy are real estate developers known for creating high-design luxury residences, including the ultra-exclusive One Hyde Park in London.

          The Plaza triplex penthouse features approximately 6,319 square feet of interior of living space and 229 square feet of exterior living space spread over the 19th, 20th and 21st floors. The 19th floor features an elevator that services all 3 floors, 3 bedroom suites and a laundry room. The 20th floor features a grand living room, 14-seat dining room and a gourmet kitchen that boasts 21 foot ceilings and a skylight. The 21st floor features the sumptuous master suite with private terrace.

          According to the Wall Street Journal, if the penthouse sells at its asking price, it would set a record for the century-old building, which converted to condominiums in 2007. The highest purchase to date in the Plaza is $6,316 per square foot, or $48 million, paid for two adjacent condos by Igor Krutoy, a Russian composer and music producer, in 2011.

                8 Months After Buying, Kelsey Grammer Attempts to Sell Beverly Hills Mansion

                Most Known For

                His role as "Frasier," and for his his high-profile divorce from ex-wife Camille

                $7,250,000

                With three properties already on the market, Kelsey Grammer is throwing a fourth into the mix by officially listing the home he recently purchased for new wife Kayte. In April 2012, Kelsey and his fourth wife purchased this six-bedroom Beverly Hills mansion for $6,500,000. It recently went up for rent for $30k a month, and now, it’s officially for sale for  $7,250,000!

                Here’s the backstory: Kelsey originally bought the estate for new wife Kayte and their baby Faith as a home base when they relocated from New York City permanently in 2012. Shortly after the move to the West Coast, Kelsey’s show “Boss” got canceled, leaving him to re-evaluate his finances. Rather than stay in the new home, Kelsey decided to move the family into the OTHER house he owns in Beverly Hills that’s currently on the market for $16 million. Ex-wife Camille is pissed about the move, because she’s legally a co-owner and has been paying her half of the carrying costs on the home, which clock in around $40,000 a month. With Kelsey’s new family living in the house, it’s going to be even harder to offload, costing Camille even more money–she even went as far as requesting an injunction from a judge to bar the move! The motion was denied, and Kelsey’s now back in the higher-priced home, new family in tow.

                It seems like the war between these two former spouses will never end.

                Kelsey himself admitted that he has to move back into the higher-priced home he previously shared with Camille because, without income from his TV show, he’s strapped for cash and can’t afford to carry two Beverly Hills mortgages. Hopefully this latest home to hit the market will sell for a profit, and he’ll be back in the money again.

                Grammer has other homes for sale in Malibu, Beaver Creek, and Beverly Hills–all three of which he owned with his ex-wife Camille–that must be sold as a part of the pair’s divorce settlement agreement. The faster they’re scooped up, the sooner these two new lovebirds can officially move on with their lives.
