Anna Nicole Smith´s mansion on the market


Four years after the blonde bombshell´s untimely passing, her house has been put on the market. The big, ugly pinkish building is listed for a meager $1,75 million. This is still quite a wad of cash for most of us, but for a house in the Hollywood Hills of this size, and with these views, it´s a bit of a steal.

The house boasts stunning views of Los Angeles and smog filled skies

The house is currently owned by the estate of Anna Nicole, under the control of her lawyer Howard K. Stern and her holding company Hot Smoochie Lips Inc. Rumour has it that the house is put up for sale to pay for the care of Daniellynn, Anne Nicole´s baby with Larry Birkhead.

Oops, I’m moving again


What a little rehab and time on the couch can do for you huh? Well, it might not immediately revamp your career but it does make you want to start fresh. Thus proves pop sensation has-been Britney Spears. She reportedly paid $12,900.000 for this ultra-luxurious pad in Hidden Hills California.

La Spears' new home

Her house is huge! A staggering 9,107 square feet, which roughly translates to 850 m2. It has 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, a ball room, two staff apartments, guest quarters, a wine cellar, chef’s kitchen and a games room. The landscaped garden boasts a tennis court, a pool and several hot tubs.

Landscaped garden

Hidden hills is a private, gated community for the über rich and wealthy. Britney will be hooding it up with the Kardashians, the Osbournes and Melissa Etheridge to name a few. As it is gated, paparazzi won’t be following her every move or shave.

Ok, Ok, I like this the best I reckon, and I know many of you do too, pop culture quizes involving famous TV and movie homes.

This time, it’s all TV again, no movies. And it’s randomness galore as the era’s these shows aired are all over the place. However, I will try to cross reference you through the entire thing, as Hollywood is and always will be a world where 6 degrees of separation is a waste of time. To give you a bit of a first hint; I added some Italian spices as all shows feature one or more characters of Italian descent.

I want the names of the show, and the name of at least one of the characters of Italian descent.

Starting with house, or rather, building number 1. An all time favorite. This is the building where a couple of buddies, mates, chums or pals lived in this long running successful series. The clue is in the word I so desperately try to avoid.

House number 2 is set in a suburb not far from building number 1. It’s a suburb in new Jersey to be precise. The organisation of American-Italians criticized the show for stereotyping Italians. To be fair, the lead character has an almost Oedipus-esque relationship with his mother, who in turn has the hots for his uncle, who actually tried to get him whacked! And they eat a lot. But I have been to Italy plenty of times, lived there even, and that is what they do!

From the Jersey shores to the Florida beaches. Plenty a pensioner has done it. So did the characters in the show featuring this house.

TV critics actually compared this show with the much later airing HBO hit Sex and the City. Mind you, SATC features women at least half the age of the characters in the show I am looking for, but yes…four women, dating various men….one of them slutty…… I totally see it.
 
Talking of SATC.. one of the girls in that show had a part in the show I am looking for next. We set sail for the West Coast for building number 4. This building featured in a spin off show, spun off a popular show named after a famous zip-code. Not far from that zip-code was where this show was set. It all revolved around several people in the beginning of their careers living together in one place. Each with their own amenities by the way. They only shared a pool.

From this place, it’s a small step to the next house. If only because surprisingly many people from the previous show made their entry in this fictitious suburban street. That’s all the clues you’re getting by the way. I think this one is a bit of a giveaway…..

For the next, and final house, we take a step back. Both geographically and in time.  We lay down our hat in Milwaukee, and jump back a decade or 5, yes, those were the days.
To be honest, the fact that this show was set in Milwaukee is a little known one. The state is mentioned like, never, in the show. A better clue would be to tell you that one of the lead characters later made fame as director even picking up a few Oscars on the way. But as that might still be leaving a few of you clueless, one more clue. The Italian character in this show is called Arthur, but is more commonly known by his nickname. In fact, the only person allowed to call him Arthur, was the lady of the house in the picture.

That’s it, good luck! And as usual, the winner gets my ever lasting respect.

Spot that TV show


This house featured in a long running series about a white trash family with hearts as big as beer kegs and super size pizza’s. A hint; the actress who starred as one of the daughters has a sister who actually starred as a daughter of a family living in a little house on a prairie somewhere.

who's house is this?

This house starred in a show where drinking one can of Miller Lite would get you crashing your car into a tree and a short stint in rehab.
"I hope the twins are OK and not out drinking..."

"I hope the twins are OK and not out drinking..."

One of the twins in the show of the previous home later on starred as one of three sisters and got to pretend-live in this house.
It looks spooky.....

It looks spooky.....

And to further emphasize on the sheer incestuous La La land that is Hollywood. One of the three sisters in the original line-up, of the show of the spooky mansion before, started her career as the only child of a woman who’s career has recently been revamped in Ugly Betty. This was the house her character lived in.
Hold me closer, cause I love this house.

Talking of Ugly Betty. Another character on this quirky ‘the Devil Wears Prada-meets-Dynasty’ show used to be married to a fellow that starred as a very annoying character living in this house with a LOT of other people..
I hated this show.
