Celebrity House Hunters

Let's start the day with some real estate rumor and gossip.

Good House Hunting...

It seems that Oscar winning ack-tor Ben Affleck and his oft nominated for an Emmy ack-tress wifey Jennifer Garner have the celebrity real estate gossips brows furrowed and tongues wagging just about every other week. First there was a humongous house in the Holmby Hills that all of the world (including Your Mama) thought they bought. They didn't.

Next, the house hunters were spotted touring a modest cottage in Venice and Your Mama heard from a well placed source in The Boo that the couple also peeked and poked around at a big and newly built house on Birdview Avenue that was listing in the twenty million smacker range.

Then it was back to the Holmby Hills where the possibly preggers pair have been spotted more than once looking over a freshly rehabbed John Bersci designed manse on S. Mapleton Drive that is currently listed at $27,500,000.

This week, the couple were out in their Audi A8 peeping and poking around a house in Brentwood that is currently under construction and about which Your Mama has no specific information.

So what gives children? Are these two really looking to buy a new crib to house a new crib or do they just like looking? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

P.S. We've long heard (but can not confirm) that the real estate luvin' couple is building a new nest for their (possibly) growing family in the Mandeville Canyon area of Brentwood, and Your Mama has also heard from a source we'll call Laughing Larry who says that the couple have twice looked at the Cecil B. DeMille estate in gated Laughlin Park (where we hear Ben's little bro Casey lives). Laughing Larry also whispered in Your Mama's big ear that one of the viewings occured in the evening and Ben's buddy Matt Damon and his wifey Luciana tagged along to see the historic 6 bedroom and 10 bathroom estate that is currently listed at $23,950,000 (reduced from $26,500,000). Hmm. Inneresting.

Heidi and Spencer Go Boo...

Also making (probably fake) celebrity real estate news is gossip glossy favorites Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag who have somehow managed to become wildly and upsettingly famous simply by calling the paps whenever they grocery shop, grab coffee or go shopping.

Oh look, there's Miss Montag now with her weave all did up teetering on a pair of sky high alligator sling-backs and toting a big white Birkin bag posing for all she's worth on the balcony of an ocean front house in Malee-boo. And oh looky there, now she's kissing on her man Spencer who among other offenses looks like he's got a damn pubic bush on his face. Seriously dude, shave that kitty-cat off.

Anyhoo, online reports say the gun toting Christians were spotted having a look-see at a $90,000 per month rental on the beach in Malee-boo before heading up into the hills to view a property listed for (around) $12,000,000. Ack! Your Mama would bet our long bodied bitches Linda and Beverly that the desperate for any and all attention couple arranged for the paps to follow them out the Pacific Coast Highway and bee-lined from the front door right out the back door so the snap happy paps could nab a thousand photos of the lovebirds getting smoochy on the deck. Uhm. Okay. Whatever.

Listen children, we know these two make boo-coo bucks working their breathtaking lack of skills and talents around Hollywood and Las Vegas, but does anyone really think these two have the ka-ching to purchase a $12,000,000 house in Malee-boo? Pleeze.

Listen to Your Mama Miss Montag and Mister Pratt, the two of you best stay put in your crappy condo in West Hollywood because when fame and fortune dries up for you two–and it most certainly will–we'd just hay-ate to see y'all face an uglee foreclosure proceeding due to a mammoth mortgage that you can no longer afford.

I'd love to know how much money Heidi and Spencer pull in a year. I can't stand them, but man do they pull off getting attention!

The things you see when you don't have a gun.

Help me out here! Briefly, who are they and why are they rich and famous. I thought you couldn't see a 20 million dollar home unless the realtor prequalified you........is that a midwest myth?

Anonymous said...

Snowman, they are part of the cast for MTV's hit show The Hills, which chronicled the pair's controversial courtship last season. Not my cup of tea (the network, show, or stars) but there you have it. Famous for being famous for no good reason.

Ugh ... I hate them!

All their fake paparazzi shots that litter the blogs & magazines - they have a deal with one of the LA paparazzi agencies, it's so obvious b.c the shots are always so fake looking! Anyway, having seen their shitty condo & Spencer having to sleep on his sisters sofa when Heidi kicked him out I'd safely say they do not have $12M - I doubt they even have $1M ... Star magazine doesn't pay that much for [fake] paparazzi shots & her clothing line is, well, I guess popular with trannies?

StPaulSnowman said...

Thanks for sharing the information. There is something really unsettling about someone being famous for being famous.......no wonder the Europeans think we are such children. I guess that if I ever met Spencer and Heidi they would just tell me to "deal with it!"

Spencer and Heidi are modern day whores (or as they say on the Sopranos, she's a who-err!) Can't wait till they just go away.

Garner's pregnancy has been confirmed by almost everyone, and while Alias dividends might be healthy, can they really afford a 25+ million house? Jinkies Scoob! If they head to Mandeville Canyon, they'll need to watch out for a-hole, brake slamming, anger management poster boy drivers.

E.J. said...

Yes they can absolutely afford a $25MM house. He's in the $5-$10MM per film range and she's probably $3-$5MM if not more... Yes, I'm jealous.

Ugh - Heidi and Spencer - Mama's parting advice was perfect. Save the money you're making now from your staged photo-ops because that well should (HOPEFULLY) be drying up soon.

As for Ben Affleck and Jen Garner, I wish them the best of luck in finding the family home of their dreams. I admire celebrities who keep their work as work and then attempt to live normal, decent private lives. I am curious to see what they end up buying. I'm guessing that in searching such high priced homes that they're looking to pay more for privacy than for the house itself.

I don't buy the Spencer and Heidi one especially since it is probably MTV paying for their condo. I know that MTV paid the rent on her apartment. Not sure about her house. Someone on an MB I go to found out that she was paying for it out of her trust but I guess MTV could be reimbursing her since it has brought tension to the show between Audriana and LC.

That should be MTV paid rent on LC's apartment and LC's trust.

Spencer is also famous from being Brody Jenner's, son of Bruce Jenner, best friend. They grew up together in LA. Spencer's father is suppose to be some kind of big time dentist in LA. That is how he grew up with Brody and knows people like Brody and the Olsen Twins.

I hope the Malibu house comes with a shed because this Spencer dude is the biggest tool I have seen in a long time.

Alessandra said...

Bwah, 1:01.

Honestly, I refuse to even mention their names. It's like an angel getting its wings when a bell rings...their fame-whoredom gets validated every time their name appears in print.

If Ben and Jen want to buy a house, I'm sure they have the means to do so. I like that they keep their personal life fairly low-key.

Thanks Momma. I love the last line you wrote on that dumb a^s couple, Fakespedia. I'ma going to post the exact comment I posted on TMZ...

"It's all fake. Publicity Stunt. They don't have the money to pay for
a 10 or 15 million dollar house. Come on folks. Think about it.
There's a lot to think about when buying a house at that amount.
TAXES. UPKEEP. INSURANCE. Especially in Malibu with all of those
fires. People that fork over that amount are multi
millionaries/billionaries. Hedge Fund Investors,CEO's,"A" List
celebrities, movies directors,producers,directors,foreign
buyers,etc... People like that afford houses in that range. Not some
dumb a&s fake actors on some scriptilty show (my new phrase for trash
like The Hills)." Why does the media cover these dumb people. Please stop.

"Why does the media cover these dumb people"

Probably because people like um..you..are willing to post messages about them on multiple websites?

Emily said...

Don't you just LOVE Speidi? How did they get so famous anyways???? Love your blog- my two obsessions combined- homes and celebs!

What puzzles me is how two not top line actors can have the money to buy places costing in the 10s of millions. Does Hollyweird reward the second and third raters so richly that they can afford these kinds of digs?

Office Space India said...

Yes, am amazed too. This is crazy, how these not so popular actors manage to buy million dollar houses.
