Michael Strahan

Living In $20 MILLION

Being Kelly Ripa's #2 sure does pay ... just ask Michael Strahan, who's throwing down serious cash to rent a $20 MILLION mega mansion in Beverly Hills ... adjacent.

Michael and hot fiancée Nicole Murphy sold their Bel Air home earlier this week for $11 million.  Get this ... they bought it for $7.9 mil a year ago.  Yeah, we hate 'em too.

Here's the problem -- they're currently homeless ... so for the time being they're renting a 10,575-square-foot casa in Beverly Park.

FYI -- Beverly Park's a celeb magnet -- residents have included Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Sylvester Stallone, Tim McGraw, Wayne Gretzky, Samuel Jackson ... the list goes on.

We don't have the exact rental price, but estates like this rent in the $100,000 / month range.  In the meantime Michael and his realtor Bob Hurwitz are on the hunt for a permanent place.

Until then ... Michael and Nicole have to settle for the Italian style villa, with 8 bedrooms, 10 baths, guest house, perfectly manicured grounds, fountains up the wazoo, and resort style pool.

Sure beats a 2 bedroom in Van Nuys.

The " we hate 'em too " is so corny. Why people that work hard and wake up early and look good have to be hated ? Oh! Wait ! TMZ. Survive on haters, so it will get as old and tired as a an 90 year old colonics backwash! T.M. Z = The Mediocrity Zone...

So you make money off the sale of a house, then you dump a good portion of the profit into a rental? Why are you rich and i'm the one living paycheck to paycheck? Haha

The gap between his front teeth is larger than the rooms. I'm not impressed.

I didn't think Michael was the strongest candidate for the cohost chair, but he has kicked azz since getting the job! I hope he gets himself a mansion, a yacht, and a Bentley!

I don't know why they don't move to the NEW YORK area, he has the show with Kelly, and then the sports Center job, that is also in NEW YORK! He has to fly back to California, every weekend! Has all the money he needs, however he doesn't have his wife and kids, well not married yet, but has been talking about it for 3 years! I heard she wants to be on the house wives of Beverly Hills! Good luck Michael!
