Weekend This and Thats

Jennifer Lopez's third ex-husband Marc Anthony reportedly snatched up a 2.5 million mock-Med mini-mansion in the hot as Hades L.A. suburb of Encino (CA). (TMZ)


Hollywood scion and up-and-coming actress Bryce Dallas Howard—she's Oscar-winning director Ron Howard's daughter—sold her Hollywood Hills house for $445,000 less than she paid for it in 2006.


Sitcom star Kelsey Grammer was a bit luckier that Miss Howard real estate wise. He flipped his purdy Spanish style casa in the fancy Flats of Beverly Hills for $200,000 more than the $6.5 million he paid for it just about year ago. (E! Online)


Contrary to scads of published reports by celebrity real estate gossips, squeaky clean American Idol host Ryan Seacrest says he did not by ballroom dancer turned country music singer Julianna Hough a three million dollar house as a break-up gift. (TMZ)


After she unsuccessfully tried to sell it off-market for $12 million sitcom queen Patricia Heaton and hubby David Hunt listed their Elmer Grey-designed Mediterranean mansion in L.A.'s Hancock Park 'hood for $8,295,000 and sold it last week for exactly $8,000,000 to a not-famous person.


Sometimes cryptic and world renown endurance oriented performance artist Marina Abramovic sold a two family townhouse with a very rare private (outdoor) swimming pool in New York City's Soho area for $3,063,000 million to b.f.f. fashion designer Riccardo Tisci, Creative Director for the venerable House of Givenchy.

Miz Abramovic bought the 21-foot wide Federal style townhouse in July 2011 for $5,337,500 so it's not entirely clear if she sold Mister Tisci a portion of the townhouse or if she simply took a punishing $2,274,500 loss on her real estate change of heart.

Iffin we were the betting type—and we are not—we'd wager both our long bodied bitches that Miz Abramovic kept the über-minimalist modern art-studio style unit on the lower two floors (plus the basement) for herself and sold Mister Tisci the 3-4 bedroom and 2.5 bathroom upper unit that opens at the back to a private terrace that overlooks the swimming pool.

Anthony: Not just fugly by ghastly; -- perfect for the cadaverous ex;

Dallas Howard: Absolutely charming;

Grammer: $200K is an awful lot for any star-struck fool to pay for notoriety;

Seacrest: Time to come out of the closet, Miz Seacrest;

Heaton: It will be a lovely home, once it's thoroughly smudged with sage;

Abramovic: An outdoor pool in NYC? Heaven...

Camilla deVille and daddy re-listing in Malibu? A Monet lily pond and a dressage riding ring. Pretentious much?

Seacrest and his 3-mil break up gift? Precious. Getting out my address book and making some calls. True or not, great concept.

Who am I to question MoMA and The Guggenheim – but artistic expression?
