“Vampire Diaries” star Daniel Gillies and Rachael Leigh Cook get a new Studio City lair

Ages ago, Yolanda’s friend Vlad the Revealer asked us about this stately Tudor located in an unpretentious (but still quite pricey) area of Studio City. On the market for the first time in more than 30 years — per the listing — the property recently transferred for $2,450,000 and was acquired by a blind trust. Well, […]

Rihanna silently drops $6.8 million on a contemporary Hollywood Hills mansion

For a 29-year-old lass, international music superstar Rihanna has had more than her fair share of property problems. So it’s not particularly surprising that although she has been a multi-millionaire since her teenage years, our gurl has only ever owned one U.S. home, or at least that was Yolanda’s understanding before today. Anyway, that’s in […]

Hidden Hills Roundup: Kylie Jenner quietly sells at a big profit to muffin mogul John Schiavo

No Hidden Hills discussion could be complete without mentioning the Kardashians, long the area’s most famous (or infamous, if you prefer) residents. When they’re not busy taking butt selfies or doin’ the daily pap stroll, the krazy K-Klan buys and sells multi-million dollar Valley mansions like normal folks go through laundry detergent. And so, here […]

Hidden Hills roundup: Eran & Lucie Moas spend $12 million for a fancy spec-mansion

Last summer, a brand-spankin’-new Hidden Hills monster mansion sold for a fat $12,100,000. Records are a bit perplexing on this one — they show the property was acquired by an untraceable Zurich, Switzerland-based entity that was originally incorporated in the British Virgin Islands, a notorious offshore tax haven. All of that seems decidedly exotic for […]

Hidden Hills Roundup: NBA All-Star Paul George secretly spends $7.4 million next door to Vin Scully

Yolanda thought we’d do something a wee bit different today. We realize that we pay the Westside of LA entirely too much attention up in this here blog. It’s not okay that we neglect other areas, other areas like the wilderness that is the San Fernando Valley. Yeah, the only time we chat about the […]

Death in Tamme Mccauley’s Pacific Palisades mansion

This isn’t really the sort of story Yolanda would normally yakk about, but If y’all live in the area or follow local LA news religiously, you probably already know that the super-wealthy yet low-key and family-friendly Pacific Palisades neighborhood recently got shook. A few days back, you see, an (allegedly) alcohol-fueled gunfight went down — […]

Billionaire Sidney Kimmel forks out $25 million for Alec Gores’ Beverly Hills showpiece

He may be pushing 90 years old, but apparel tycoon turned billionaire film producer and hardcore real estate baller Sidney Kimmel apparently wants a new house. And Yolanda hears from a little birdie that he has already closed on his latest dream residence: a deceptively modest-lookin’ contemporary spec build in prime Beverly Hills. Modest is […]

Jeff Bezos drops $13 million on the little Beverly Hills house next door

To most folks, spending $10 million on a house seems like an unfathomable extravagance, the kind reserved for lottery winners and nouveau riche celebrities. But in reality, it’s a different kind of group altogether that (generally) buys those homes. Most folks spending eight figures on a property are successful businesspeople who are looking to invest […]
