    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.

      ’30 Rock’ funny man Alec Baldwin is a very dedicated New Yorker. Not only has he toyed with the idea of running for mayor but he has now officially snagged yet another beautiful New York City home. This time, it’s a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath Greenwich Village condo just five miles from the Central Park West co-op that he currently has on the market for $9.5 million.

      For those unfamiliar with ‘The Village,’ it’s one of New York’s poshest neighborhoods, rich with music and artistic culture. In other words, this is one heck of a place for AB to call home!

      The new penthouse exudes class as the sleek 4,137 sqft space mixes traditional Italian and English detailing with contemporary interior designs done up by Victoria Hagan. According to The Real Estalker, “the main living space pinwheels around a floating staircase and includes a formal dining room, living room with a fireplace [...].” The entire property is lined with windows and dark wooden floors throughout, all accenting a white ceiling with slight coffered architecture.

      Every bedroom includes its very own bath, the large master bedroom features a fancy dressing area trimmed with closets, and the spacious, brightly lit upstairs living area includes two terraces. A perfect place for Alec take in the view while enjoying a premium H. Upmann.

      Designed by famed architect Emery Roth, this historic, pre-war building includes a grand Art Deco lobby with a doorman and concierge service, fitness center, 1/2 court basketball, children’s playroom, bike room and garage. Nothing but the best for ‘Jack Donaghy.’
