Ex-con Victorino Noval slams down $20+ million for Alki David’s Beverly Hills mansion

Last May (2015), a large house located in a very prime section of Beverly Hills and owned by billionaire Greek heir Alkiviades “Alki” David was listed for $35 million. The rather eccentric Mr. David babbled to the Wall Street Journal some silly nonsense about how “Nobody should consider offering anything less [than $35 million]” and “the price is […]

Tinseltown scion Max Spielberg puts down roots in Westchester

Seems as though Yolanda’s anointed duty (curse? blessing?) is to discuss the real estate doings of the many members of the exceptionally prosperous Spielberg clan. If we must, we must. So be it! We’ve already babbled on about the independently-wealthy Jessica Capshaw‘s $10 million splurge on an unfinished Pacific Palisades mansion, and we also gabbed about […]

Guns N’ Roses rocker Duff McKagan upgrades in Sherman Oaks with $4.7 million mansion buy

Though famously a born-and-raised-and-forevermore-eternal Seattleite, hard rock musician and former junkie Duff McKagan actually spends a great deal of time livin’ away from his hometown fog way down here in the LA smog. With the exception of a handful of years, Mr. McKagan has owned a Los Angeles house since 1988. He’s also got a peculiar fondness […]

Bella Thorne snags Sherman Oaks starter house, promptly paints it purple

Nearly a year ago (where does the time go?!) Yolanda revealed young Miss Chloë Grace Moretz’s very adult multi-million-dollar Studio City starter house. In the post, we briefly referenced an ongoing “feud” (publicity stunt?) involving Miss Moretz, the Kardashian cabal, and another ingénue named Bella Thorne. We must apologize for dissing Miss Thorne by saying we […]

British investor Howard Shore dumps $39 million on a Bel Air “contemporary masterpiece”

It was well over two years ago that this Bel Air mansion at 864 Stradella Road first popped up for sale, stars in its eyes and the (LA) world at its feet. The asking price then was a rather ludicrous $55,000,000. Yes, really. $55 million for a 14,000-square-foot house on a .82-acre lot. “Outrageous!!” as […]

Tool’s Danny Carey pays $6.35 million for Emilio Estevez’s Malibu micro-vineyard

First it was Variety‘s Mama and then a bunch of our other real estate gossip compadres whispered that actor/Tinseltown scion Emilio Estevez had finally snagged a buyer for his landlocked “micro-vineyard” in Malibu’s Point Dume neighborhood. Then the peeps at the LA Times went on to snitch that the sale went down for $6,350,000. Since Point Dume is by […]
