    Forget fancy heels and designer clothes: mom-to-be Jessica Simpson has put her passion for fashion aside and is all about baby number two. So much so that she’s completely ditching Sharon Osbourne’s exquisite master bedroom closet and converting it into a nursery! According to UsWeekly, Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson are in escrow to buy The Talk co-host’s 11,000-square-foot mansion for $13 million and have already met with designers to transform the Osbourne’s former walk-in closet into a baby room.

    The Price of Darkness and Sharon had been wrestling with selling the Hidden Hills home since July 2011 — at one point, the estate was even listed for rent for $50k a month. The Osbournes purchased the six-bedroom, 10-bath home in the equestrian community of Hidden Hills on August 3, 2007, for $12,388,500 and have settled on parting with the estate for just a smidge more than the purchase price at $13 million.

    Located within the exclusive guard-gated community of Hidden Hills, Simpson’s soon-to-be home is situated on a private knoll and is a sophisticated Cape Cod-inspired estate located atop an intimate cul-de-sac. Featured in “Architectural Digest” in 2011, the grand residence rests on a 2.25 acre promontory with breathtaking city light and mountain views.

    Reimagined by legendary interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, the magnificent home features the main home’s six bedrooms, as well as a guest apartment with kitchenette, intricately paneled study with fireplace, porte-cochere with motor court, exquisitely accented formal dining room, dramatic foyer with spiral staircase, floor-to-ceiling windows, and an expansive lower level studio/home theater space.

    The family room is highlighted by oversized sliding barn doors, a reclaimed brick fireplace and beamed vaulted ceilings. The master suite offers a sitting area, stone fireplace, wood paneled walk-in closet, and an adjacent office. Expansive rear grounds include rolling lawns, a spa, barbeque island, outdoor shower, commode, and several seating enclaves.

      Former pop star and reality TV newlywed who reinvented herself as a fashion mogul and soon-to-be first time mommy

      $19,500,000 or $55,000 a month

      There’s plenty of speculation happening about Jessica Simpson’s next steps on the real estate front as she preps for the arrival of her first child with fiance Eric Johnson. She’s been spotted touring big, beautiful properties on both coasts, so it’s likely the pop singer-turned fashion mogul will swoop in on something spectacular in the coming weeks. After all, it’s the classic celebrity real estate equation. New baby + new or impending marriage almost always = a fancy new home to nest in.

      We’ve just received word from our friends over at the New York Post that Simpson and Johnson recently toured the spectacular penthouse at 25 Bond Street in New York City. Listed for sale for $19,500,000, but reportedly available for rent for $55,000 a month, the home is a big-time New York pad, and definitely spacious enough to accommodate the growing Simpson-Johnson family. With 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and about 7,300 square feet, there is room for a nursery, as well as Jess’ parents Joe and Tina, who are always photographed tagging along with their famous daughter.

      The penthouse that Jess could make her East Coast home is a magnificent full-floor condominium loft in the coveted 25 Bond Street complex in the chic NoHo neighborhood. The full-floor home has grand proportions, soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, plus 4 parking spaces and private storage space. An NYC rarity, gorgeous bronze elevators open directly into the incredible 90-foot-long great room. An elegant chef’s kitchen is beautifully designed by Balthaup with an eat-at counter, top-of-the line finishes, double appliances, a wine cooler and an enormous walk-in pantry. On the south wing of the home there are 5 bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom suite has a wood burning fireplace, an office, a private balcony, a dressing room and a luxurious master bathroom with a soaking tub, steam shower and double vanity. There is a mud room and laundry room with an adjoining full bathroom, plus a powder room for guests. The luxury building features a 24-hour doorman, private garden with outdoor barbeque and dining area and exercise room.

        Gramercy Park, NYC

        Most Known For

        A long, beloved run as Rachel on Friends and a breakout star in feature films

        3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, soaring ceilings and park views



        Jennifer Aniston is at it again! No stranger to the ins and outs of buying and selling high-priced pads, US Weekly is reporting that Aniston has just purchased a posh apartment in New York City’s Gramercy Park neighborhood. At 50 Gramercy Park North, Aniston is the proud new owner of unit 9B, the only unit at the prestigious address that looks out over Manhattan’s only private park from the master bedroom.

        Currently under contract with Aniston for a price close to $9,000,000, the home is fit for everyone’s favorite Friend. Featuring soaring 11.8 foot ceilings, 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, unit 9B offers uncompromised views, incredible natural light, gorgeous hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, and sumptuous spa-like bathrooms, custom shelving and top-of-the-line Miele appliances. Designed by renowned John Pawson, 50 Gramercy Park North features beautiful custom features and amenities of a 5-star hotel including housekeeping, valet, room service, event planning, butler service, catering, personal shopping, delivery service, car wash service and membership to the  gym and spa at the Gramercy Hotel.

        Aniston bought the property from an unnamed seller, but based on the listing photos, you can tell it’s someone with a serious love of Hollywood. Famous faces grace the walls of the common areas, bedrooms and bathrooms, giving the home a definite aura of tinseltown. Ever since Jen stepped out with her latest love Justin Theroux, the couple has been plagued with rumors of marriage and babies. Aniston’s new abode features not one but TWO nurseries. Should the rumors turn out to be true, Jen’s got the right NYC home for a growing family.


        Update 11/10 – Our sources are reporting that Jennifer Aniston was asked point-blank at this week’s Glamour magazine awards about her recent Gramercy Park purchase. The actress and her rep denied the purchase, saying that they toured the apartment but opted not to buy it. Take that as you will, as most A-listers never want to reveal the truth about where they call home.
