    Theresa and Joe Giudice of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” fame are selling their large Towaco, NJ house just weeks before they’re set to be sentenced to time in “the big house” – aka jail.

    The longtime Bravo TV stars and fan favorites ran afoul of the law this past year, when they were indicted and eventually plead guilty to numerous counts of tax and mortgage fraud. Their sentencing is set for early October, where they’ll find out how many months they’ll spend in the slammer, where they’ll undoubtedly experience a new kind of reality.

    With lawyers bills piling up, Joe and Theresa are selling their Jersey estate for $3,999,000. They picked up the vacant lot in 2002 for $530,000, and proceeded to build a massive Chateau-style mega-mansion.

    Located at 6 Indian Lane, the home sits on 3.5 acres and has 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 10,044 square feet. There’s a lot of Theresa touches throughout, including an abundance of brown and bling. As seen many times on the TV show, the Giudice home has a grand two- story entrance with double Cinderella staircases.

    The gourmet kitchen is the center of the home, and is often the scene of Giudice family get-togethers and moments with their four daughters. The kitchen features a butlers pantry and large working center island, perfect for entertaining.

    The grand formal great room doesn’t get much screen time, but in the photos, you can see that it features a huge wood-burning fireplace, a soaring two-story ceiling with upstairs balcony overlooking the room.

    The master bedroom is just what you’d expect from Theresa – over-sized and over-the-top! It features three custom designed walk-in closets, a massive gas fireplace, and master bath with onyx tile, steam shower, soaking tub.

      Atlanta native who is looking for love on ABC's hit reality TV show

      The men have ‘told all,’ and now The Bachelorette, Andi Dorfman, is just a week away from handing out the final rose.  Will she choose Nick Viall, a 33-year-old software sales executive from Chicago, or Josh Murray, a 29-year-old former professional baseball player from Dorfman’s hometown of Atlanta?

      Since she’s now thisclose to her happily ever after (fingers crossed), Trulia has made it easier for Andi and Josh/Nick to take their relationship to the next level and move in together!

      Will they rent or will they buy?

      Conventional real estate wisdom says to wait to buy, unless you know you’ll be able to stay put for 5-7 years. With the track records or other Bachelor/Bachelorette alums as precedent, let’s assume they should rent…for now.

      But, if Andi and Josh/Nick decide they do want make a commitment to both themselves and real estate, we have some great for-sale options for them as well!

      Will they settle in Andi’s native Georgia, where Josh lives as well? Or will they head to the Windy City of Chicago and take up residence in Nick’s town?

      Here’s some amazing options in both cities:

      Atlanta

       

      Buy: At the Buckhead Grand, this $320,000 condo is the right combo of grown up and sophisticated, with room to grow. If Andi and her man want to put down roots and have room for what’s ahead, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is a great choice.

        Fresh off the Kimye wedding, the Kardashians are ‘taking’ the Hamptons for the latest installment of their reality TV series – and they’re doing it in style.

        This summer, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney (and their oodles of assistants, glam squads, nannies, etc) will descend upon the Hamptons to shoot their E! series, “Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons,” where they’ll chronicle the launch of their popular Dash retail store in the chic New York vacation hotspot, all while living in a rented mansion, which is actually for-sale for $13,950,000.

        Their summer digs are sure to please even the pickiest Kardashian (we’re looking at you, Kim). The waterfront home sits on 3 acres, with a heated pool and a private dock. The 8,900 square foot estate is surrounded by water on 3 sides, and features 5 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

        There’s an oversized den, an open living room (perfect for lounging), a professional grade kitchen, and waterfront views from every window and glass door.

        Along with breathtaking views and top-of-the-line amenities, this home is made even more appealing by its close proximity to beaches and Southampton Village, where the Dash store will be open for business all summer.

        There were rumbles a few weeks back that the Kardashians were all “persona non grata” in the exclusive Hamptons community, and that many for-rent homes were closing their doors to the sisters. A source told the New York Post that “many Hamptons brokers refused to work with Kardashian producers, for fear of further upsetting locals who are worried about traffic and crowds, while other owners refused to rent their homes in more esteemed locations.”

        Sorry Hampton-ites. Looks like the Kardashians are coming at you – and doing it in style.

        The for-sale listing on their rental is being held by Danielle Lise Desrochers of Elliman.

         

          Report: Khloe Kardashian Buys Justin Bieber’s Calabasas Home!

          Price

          $7,200,000

          Khloe Kardashian just bought Justin Bieber’s Calabasas mansion!

          According to an exclusive report from US Weekly, multiple sources have confirmed that the youngest Kardashian sister has just spent $7.2M on Bieber’s home in The Oaks, a gated community in Calabasas.

          Khloe recently sold the Tarzana, CA home she shared with estranged husband Lamar Odom to ‘Big Bang Theory’ actress Kaley Cuoco and her new husband Ryan Sweeting. After many months of marital turmoil and a divorce filing in December 2013, Khloe was ready to move on from her former life with Lamar and into some brand new digs.

          Before Khloe came a-knocking with some serious cash, Bieber purchased the sprawling home in 2012. He quietly (and secretly) put it on the market after some highly publicized and heated run-ins with his neighbors, including an egging incident that resulted in a police raid and a serious felony vandalism investigation.

          Bieber has given up on the sleepy community of Calabasas and moved into a rented mansion in Atlanta, but the Kardashians are doubling down. Mom Kris Jenner lives in nearby Hidden Hills with sisters Kendall and Kylie, and older sister Kourtney recently upgraded her Calabasas living situation by buying retired NFL star Keyshawn Johnson’s home, which is just a couple doors down from the home Khloe just bought from the Biebs.

          Kourtney and boyfriend Scott Disick also have their former Calabasas mansion on the market with a $3,999,000 price tag.

            Not quite real!

            One of the many secrets of the reality TV show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ has just emerged! According to TMZ, the exterior of the home that appears multiple times in each episode as the “Jenner House” has just hit the market for $6.25 M. As a result, the millions of viewers who watch the Kardashians every Sunday are just now realizing that the home they thought belonged to the famous family is just a façade for reality TV. While it’s made to appear as the home that Kris, Bruce, Kendall, Kylie, Kim, Kanye and North all live in in the affluent community of Calabasas, CA, the home is a fake that’s actually located in Studio City.

            The Kardashian/Jenner’s actual home is 20 miles away in Hidden Hills, CA in a 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 8,860 square foot home they purchased on March 9, 2010 for $4,000,000 and a fake home is used for security and privacy reasons – mainly to keep the throngs of Kardashian–obsessed fans from crawling around outside the home trying to catch a peek of the famous family.

            Newly listed, this home in Studio City, CA has 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 7,049 square feet and a sprawling backyard with in-ground pool. The interior photos are a stark difference from the black, white and glam décor that Kris Jenner favors for her massive family compound.

            This sale will be one to watch, as the new owners will have the rights to pull their home’s image from the show. In that case, the Kardashians will need to find a new ‘real estate reality.’

              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.

              Braxton’s new purchase is a French-country inspired single-story home with a a private courtyard entry. Inside, gleaming wood floors, custom beam ceilings and built-in cabinetry accentuate the formal living area. Adjacent, a magnificent chef’s kitchen has Sub Zero and Wolf stainless appliances, granite counters and elaborate tile work and custom cabinetry. Toni’s new private master suite features a sitting area, dual walk-in closets and a bathroom with limestone floors, a spa tub, designer tile shower, water closet and vanity.

              Outside, a lushly landscaped private yard includes a salt water pool, spa, loggia, multiple fountains and outdoor fireplace.

              This new purchase is quite the financial accomplishment for Braxton, who claimed debts of about $50,000,000 when she first filed for bankruptcy in 2010.

                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.

                  Kourtney Kardashian has just unveiled the stunning and spunky decor inside her Calabasas, CA home on Domaine.com and dropped the bomb that the home is about to hit the market!

                  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!

                    After a year of turmoil and scandal that resulted in divorce, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are officially selling their sprawling Tarzana home.

                    According to the Los Angeles Times and  The Real Estalker, the home is now officially listed for sale for $5,499,000.

                    In the months before the home went up for sale, news reports revealed that Lamar has been battling drug addiction and Khloe was trying to save him – and their four-year marriage. When all their efforts to rectify their marriage failed, Khloe filed for divorce in December, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

                    Now, it’s time to split the marital assets – including this incredible mansion, which was purchased in both of their names before being transferred into a shared trust. Khloe and Lamar paid $3,950,000 for the spread in December 2009 –  shortly after they married in a quickie wedding ceremony after just a month of dating.

                    If you have the cash money to buy the house where Khloe and Lamar spent happier days, you’ll be buying 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 Tarzana home has an outdoor kitchen with 2 refrigerators, a bbq bit, covered cabanas and a pool and spa.

                    If the home looks familiar, it’s because they’ve filmed “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and their spin-off “Khloe & Lamar” all over the property.

                    Tomer and Isadora Fridman of Ewing Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.

                      Two years after their bitter divorce, Camille and Kelsey Grammer are finally untangling one of the final pieces of their former life together.

                      Property records show that their stunning Beaver Creek, Colorado vacation home has finally sold for $6.6 million!

                      In 2002, during much happier times, they purchased the home together for $5,350,000. Fast forward to September 2011, when the just-seperated duo put the home on the market for $7.9 million and hoped to make a quick and easy sale and divide the profits, per the terms of their divorce settlement.

                      Two years ticked by and the asking price dropped lower and lower, and finally a buyer stepped forward and bought the Grammer’s former winter hideaway, which was once featured on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

                      The exquisite just-sold home is nestled in the private area of Bachelor Gulch. As you may have seen on RHOBH, the home is excellent for entertaining, and offers a spacious great room, two master suites, a family/rec room, dramatic circular stair tower and in true Camille Grammer fashion – nannies quarters. Other highlights include beautiful pine floors reclaimed from the Sears Tower in Chicago, inviting stone fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, a spacious gourmet kitchen and breakfast nook, a wine cellar and tasting room, and an expansive deck with gorgeous mountain views.

                      The home also features a in-ground hot tub. The convenient ski-in/walk to ski out location is adjacent to an open space dedicated as a wildlife corridor.

                      This home has successfully sold, and Camille has just one more piece of her former life to shed before she’s officially Kelsey-free. She is currently looking to sell their former family home in Malibu. It’s on the market with a $14,995,000 price tag.
