Britney Spears has flopped her home in the Summit community of Beverly Hills back on the market yet again. Spears bought the home on what appears to have been a quick impulse back in 2007 during her more manic days and she’s been trying to sell off and on ever since. The home has been listed as high as $7.9 million last fall but now the six-bedroom villa is at a more realistic $6.499 million. Spears meanwhile has decamped to Calabasas when she’s not on tour. The new price means that she will likely lose money on the deal, Spears bought for $6.75 million when it was on the market for $7.2 million, but may be she’ll be glad to be rid of the home once it finally sells.
Latest Update: The house has still not sold, and the price has been slashed to $4.85 million.
According to People magazine, “The pop star, 26, has lived in the hilltop home for less than two years – and had to leave the house twice early this year to be forcibly hospitalized. Spears’s father Jamie, who remains in legal control of his daughter until Dec. 31, sought permission from a court in June to sell the home.”
Britney in fact wants a new starting and is planning a move to Calabasas, California, which is an hour’s drive north of Los Angeles.

Star Wars princess Natalie Portman is selling her modest, 7-room Long Island home for $2.2 million. She has lived on Long Island since she was a child, and in this home for the past five years. I love when celeb houses hit the market because then we all get to peek inside and see how they live! I don’t know where I imagined Natalie Portman would live, but it wasn’t here. It doesn’t look like she actually spends much time in this house, but maybe she doesn’t. She also owns a condo in Manhattan with a view of the Hudson. It’s not really how you’d expect a movie star to live, is it? Of course, maybe she doesn’t think so, either, which may be why she’s moving!

Ina Garten is known to millions of food habitants as “The Barefoot Contessa,”. She has an apartment in Manhattan featured in House Beautiful. To quote of hers from the article:
When people come to your house, you don’t ever want them to feel that you’ve been cooking for three days. You want them to feel like this is just something you whipped up and come on, we’re having a party. And decorating is like that, too. You don’t want people to feel, Oh, don’t touch that. You want them to feel, Oh, just sit anywhere and put your feet up.
Despite the bold color on the windows, the rest of the apartment remains mostly neutral.
The kitchen in her East Hampton “barn” is the one most of us recognize (featured in Veranda magazine):
Garten worked at the White House in the 70s. She bought a small, specialty food store in the Hamptons called “The Barefoot Contessa.” She told The New York Times, “My job in Washington was intellectually exciting and stimulating but it wasn’t me at all.”
The original store’s owner named it after a 1954 film starring Ava Gardner and Humphrey Bogart. Garten felt the name suited her “elegant but earthy lifestyle.”
Her first book, The Barefoot Contessa’s Cookbook, became a bestseller when it was published in 1999. Nowadays she hosts a popular show on The Food Network “The Barefoot Contessa,”. (Did you watch?)
