    Puddle of Mud frontman Wes Scantlin is looking to unload his rundown West Hollywood pad at a loss of about $200k. Scantlin purchased the home in 2005 for $1.7 million, right around the height of his career, and has since partied himself out of the three bedroom, four bath, 2,350 square foot home. He’s seeking a buyer to give the place some tender love and care for the small price tag of just $1,499,000.

    There are few pictures to show of Scantlin’s property — and that’s not a good sign. With the pool looking like a puddle of algae, it’s no wonder the home has lost some value since its initial purchase about 10 years ago. However, between having epic on-stage meltdowns and being arrested multiple times, maintaining a million-dollar property may be the last thing on this bad boy rockstar’s mind.

    Nevertheless, the show must go on. According to the listing, the home is ‘in good condition with great bones.’ Renovated in 2009, the contemporary home is in a prime Hollywood location as it sits perched up on the Hollywood Hills right above the Sunset trip. Walls of glass line the living and dining area and offer stunning city and ocean views. The exterior is surrounded by trees and shrubs, giving the pool and patio ultimate privacy.

      Music legend Dolly Parton is selling her Dollywood Hollywood home, asking $1,395,000 for the Western-themed home that is said to be the former childhood residence of Natalie Wood.

      While she spends most of her time in Music City, Dolly laid down $1,200,000 for the West Coast home in April 2007.

      The gated mini-compound is just like Dolly – eclectic and whimsical!

      Located in West Hollywood’s coveted Norma Triangle, the home has all kinds of charming details, including hardwood floors throughout, plantation shutters, skylight and hand painted accents.

      One of the home’s two bedrooms has a walk-in closet, full bath and French doors leading to its own private landscaped deck.

      Between the bedrooms, Dolly’s hideaway has a cozy den with fireplace that leads to French doors and the master bedroom which features two giant closets, built-ins with a pop-up TV, and French doors that lead to the large covered deck with built-in seating, BBQ, refrigerator and prep area.

      The rear garden is totally private with an abundance of lush landscaping and total privacy, plus a separate climate controlled storage room. While the home is technically a 2 bedroom, the garage has been converted into adorable, private guest suite.

      Ms. Parton is quite the real estate mogul. Property records show she has at least 15 other properties in her portfolio, mostly in Nashville, Brentwood and Sevierville, Tennessee.

        Kelly Osbourne, the purple-haired progeny of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, has just sold her charming West Hollywood home for $1,300,000.

        After listing the home for $1,349,000 in February 2014, Osbourne found a buyer willing to pay just below asking price.

        It’s been a year of big changes for Osbourne, and selling this home was part of her quest for a fresh start. 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 parted ways with 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 former 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 many 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 was Kelly’s listing agent and the deal closed on March 11, 2014.

          Two-time World Series Champion Barry Zito has just tossed his West Hollywood home on the market for $4,375,000!

          Zito was just cut loose from the San Francisco Giants when his $126 million dollar contract expired after seven up-and-down years. Without a mound to stand on, Zito has turned his focus back to his bulging real estate portfolio, which includes this for-sale home, a massive property in the Sunset Plaza area of Los Angeles, and a San Francisco-area home that’s currently for rent for $28,500 a month.

          A shrewd real estate investor, Zito knows a great house when he sees one. Zito’s West Hollywood gem sits on one of the most private and quiet Bird Streets above Sunset Blvd and is newly remodeled. And those views!  Zito’s place has the kind of views usually available only to the most elevated lots far above Sunset Blvd, but unlike those high-in-the-sky properties, this house is only about 3-5 mins away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.

          Listing agent Sharon Hills of Kobeissi Properties, gave us some inside intel on Zito’s property, saying, “he never lived here, but purchased it because of its location in the prestigious Bird Streets of the Hollywood Hills, and the incredible views.”

          The views range all the way from the LA skyline to the ocean and can be seen perfectly though the many walls of glass. Soaring ceilings and an open concept floor plan create a dramatic and spacious environment and most rooms open directly to outdoor terraces, perfect for entertaining.

          According to the listing, which was first spotted by the Los Angeles Times, all bedrooms have their own bathroom, and the master suite sprawls across the entire top floor. A rarity in the Hollywood Hills, this home has an abundance of street parking and a designated turn around for easy access.

            ‘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.

              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.

                  Actress Sara Gilbert has just bought a stunning contemporary home on a prestigious cul-de-sac overlooking the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, according to public records. Gilbert first burst onto the scene as the mouthy and defiant daughter - Darlene Connor on “Roseanne” – a role she played for 11 years.

                  In recent years, Gilbert has made small and large appearances on smash hits like 24, Will & Grace, ER, The Big Bang Theory and The Talk. Personally, Gilbert split with her partner of 10 years in August 2011, with whom she shares two children. Shortly after her breakup, Gilbert stepped out with well-known songwriter and former 4 Non Blondes front woman Linda Perry.  The duo are still dating.

                  Perhaps this new home, which Gilbert paid $3.5 million for, is a new love nest for the high-profile partners?

                  Nestled high in the Hollywood Hills, Gilbert’s new abode is a bold yet sophisticated and features an open floor plan with great volumes, walls of glass, 11 foot ceilings and banks of floor-to-ceiling sliding windows that seamlessly integrate indoor with outdoors. The dramatic living room space is entered through a 10 foot pivot door and features a contemporary gas fireplace and corner pocket doors that seem to make walls disappear. The public spaces include a glass enclosed library that doubles as a sophisticated home office, a striking dining room, a professional style kitchen with slick white cabinetry and an oversized island and intimate family room. A separate master suite features a modern spa retreat with soaking tub, wash closet and steam shower, plus a large walk in-closet. Three additional bedrooms each with individual baths comprise their own separate wing.

                  The home is very private and boasts a true entertainer’s yard, featuring Ironwood decking, a firepit and a shimmering pool with raised spa and water feature. Gated and hedged for privacy, Gilbert’s brand new stylish home has fully integrated technology features like whole-home audio, home automation and security systems.

                  Scott Ryan of the John Aaroe Group represented the listing and Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland was Gilbert’s agent.
