Kyle Richards I'll Do 'Celebrity Apprentice' But I'm Goin' Home to My Man!!!

1/30/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Kyle Richards filmed her first day of 'Celebrity Apprentice' Friday, but unlike the other apprentices, she spent the night in the comfort of her own home.  

Sources connected to production tell TMZ, Kyle attached one string to her show contract ... she would not be confined to a hotel during the 30 days of filming. We're told she insisted on going home to studly hubby, Mauricio Umansky.

The caged contestants include Laila Ali, Brooke Burke, Lisa Leslie, Vince Neil, Snooki, Chael Sonnen and Porsha Williams. They're staying in a beachfront hotel while the show films in L.A. 

Our sources say Kyle will make appearances in the hotel room, so it may look like she's living there ... but she's not.

Arnold's not the only one with power.

1/29/2016 3:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0129_joe_jonas_hilltop_home_launchJoe Jonas is making life post-Gigi Hadid look real good -- no easy feat -- thanks to the new Hollywood Hills mansion he just scored.

The place, which is on the market for $4.6 million,  is being sold by celeb real estate agent Carl Gambino of Westside Estate Agency -- but Joe's not buying ... he'll only be in it for a bit ... for $40,000 a month! The 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home is the perfect bachelor pad -- spectacular city views, a circular drawing room, pool, and awesome cliffside lawn. 

Yeah, Joe's new band DNCE is doing THAT well. 

This is the second sick Hollywood Hills crib he's landed.

Check out the pics -- the hidden Murphy-style bar in the living is vintage James Bond baller. 

Tyga I Got a Sexy New Bachelor Pad ... Far, Far Away From Kylie

1/29/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0128-tyga-tmz-getty-fix-02Tyga is distancing himself from Kylie Jenner ... we've learned he's just moved far, far away.

Tyga's been looking for a new pad for some time, but his search has been focused on Calabasas, so he could be near Kylie.

Well he's found a place to live, and it's an hour's drive from Kylie's home. We've learned Tyga's renting a home off of Sunset Plaza, above the Sunset Strip. He's paying $35k a month for a house that has jetliner views of the city. 

The house has 4 bedrooms and an infinity pool ... it was marketed as a sexy bachelor pad. 

We called the realtor on the property, James Harris of the The Agency, for more details ... but he had no comment. 

Minecraft Creator Giving Away MJ Leftovers ... Found in $70 Million Pad

1/28/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0127_minecraft_house_auction_gallery_launchMinecraft creator Markus Persson is simply giving away a bunch of stuff, including Michael Jackson memorabilia that was left behind in his insane Bev Hills mansion. 

Not only did the billionaire gaming mogul snatch the crib from Jay Z and Beyonce -- he outbid them in 2014 -- but the previous owner left Bentley furniture, Shepard Fairey prints and even framed and autographed MJ pics.

36-year-old Persson (yes, he's that young) is auctioning off the items and all the proceeds will go to Design by Donation which supports at-risk youth.  

Don't worry about Markus -- he'll still have a candy room, home theater, car lift and his infinity pool with a view to entertain him. 


Lamar Odom I'm Living Next to Khloe Now .... Thanks to Khloe

1/26/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0125-lamar-odom-khloe-kardashian-TMZ-SPLASH-03Lamar Odom has a new lease on life ... in Calabasas, thanks to estranged wife Khloe Kardashian.

We've learned Khloe has leased a home for Lamar just blocks from her home in The Oaks, an exclusive gated community. Our Kardashian sources say Khloe's name is on the lease, which makes sense. Lamar is still in no position to sign contracts.

Although Lamar is not living with Khloe, they are spending time together. He was spotted at her home Monday and looked good.

Khloe has vowed to stick by Lamar during his rehab after his near-fatal OD, and she's clearly staying true to her word.


Louis Tomlinson I Got My Baby Mama a Modest Home ... And Child Support is On the Way

1/26/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0125-louis-tomlinson-briana-jungwirth-GETTY-AKMGSI-01Louis Tomlinson is providing for his baby and baby mama, but the digs are modest and the jury is out on child support.

We've learned Briana Jungwirth and their son are living in a 3 bedroom home in Calabasas ... a far cry from the reported $10 million mansion he reportedly bought her. We're told the home is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars ... not in the millions.

We're told Briana is paying for the furniture and Louis isn't exactly opening the bank vault.

Louis is renting his own place in L.A. so he can be closer to his son. We're told it's a lot nicer than Briana's digs.

The new parents are getting along, but they have not settled on a child support figure yet. There are reports she wants $600k a year. That may well be in the universe of possibilities, but a lot depends on his income and the needs of the child ... that's the way it's done in California.

Briana is telling her friends she's not using the baby as a meal ticket ... getting help is fine, but she insists she won't get greedy.


Robin Williams Villa Of Smiles Finally Sells For $18.1 Million

1/26/2016 7:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0126_robin_williams_napa_estate_launchRobin Williams' sprawling estate up in Napa is off the market and the buyers got it for a steal ... $18.1 million, nearly $17 million less than the original listing price. 

The property is massive -- 640 acres, 18 of which are vineyards. Same goes for the home onsite, which Robin had built more than 10 years ago -- it's nearly 20,000 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 10 baths and 3 safe rooms for security.

As for the perks ... a 9-stall barn, hiking and riding trails, infinity pool, a bell tower, indoor home theater, pond and climate controlled cellars to store wine or art.

Williams called it Villa Sorriso which roughly translates in Italian to “house of smiles.” He had tried unloading it numerous times ... first in 2012 for $35 million, and then again two years ago for $29.9 million, but the price was eventually lowered to $22.9 million.

The buyers -- reportedly 2 French winemakers -- paid cash.

Mariah and James Shackin' Up in Calabasas

1/25/2016 7:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0125-mariah-packer-tmz-splash-01Mariah Carey and James Packer have just leased a home in Kardashian-land, and it's all about family ... TMZ has learned.

Mariah and James leased a mansion in The Oaks, a fancy gated community in Calabasas. Our Mariah sources say she and James wanted to live in an area that is "family friendly" ... especially because Mariah has the twins full time.

The estate is amazing ... it's 18,000 square feet on one acre with sweeping views. All the stones are imported from Italy, there's a theater, sauna and gym. The house took 5 years to build and has never been on the market.

Our sources say Emil Hartoonian from The Agency brokered the deal ... for an astonishing lease price of around $250,000 a month.

We're told they are leasing the estate with an option to purchase. They shouldn't have trouble coming up with the down payment. 

Playboy Mansion Larry Flynt Tries to Hustle Hef With Lowball Offer

1/22/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0121_hugh_hefner_larry_flint_playboy_tmz_getty-2Larry Flynt wants to buy the Playboy Mansion, but as part of the deal he wants to make Hugh Hefner his bitch.  

Sources connected to Flynt tell TMZ, the Hustler honcho believes the Mansion is only worth $40 million -- far short of the $200 million asking price. But Flynt says he understands the property is iconic so he's willing to double the amount and offer $80 mil, assuming an appraisal justifies it. 

Now the strings ... Flynt will ask Hefner to participate in choosing the girls for Hustler. He also wants Hef to write a column for Flynt's mag. 

We're told Flynt's intention is to turn the Playboy Mansion into the Hustler Mansion, with the same glitz and glamour that defined it in its heyday ... after some major renovations.

But our Playboy Enterprises sources tell us, ridiculous stipulations aside, there is no way in hell they will sell the property for $80 million. 

Hustler's Larry Flynt Wants Playboy Mansion Minus Hef ... According to Report

1/21/2016 12:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0121-larry-flynt-tmzIt's a little too perfect -- Hustler honcho Larry Flynt buying the Playboy Mansion and giving his archenemy Hugh Hefner the boot -- but it's reportedly exactly what could happen.

Flynt's Hustler execs want to make an offer on the mansion according to the NY Daily News -- but he wants Hef out of place. As TMZ first reported ... the mansion is on the market for $200 million, and there's a clause in the sale that allows Hef to remain in his crib until he dies. The buyer just has to wait. 

Team Hustler thinks it's a good fit for its staff and, more importantly, its parties. We got Flynt last week and he claimed he'd have ZERO interest in the iconic pad. Maybe his execs convinced him to change his mind.

Either way, our real estate sources say there's potentially a huge snag -- Hef has to approve the purchaser, and we're told chances are slim to none he'd give Flynt the thumbs up.


Gwyneth Paltrow Mi Casa Es Baller!! Y Muy GRANDE Too

1/19/2016 12:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0119_gwenyth_paltrow_mexico_beach_house_airbnb_launchGwyneth Paltrow and her BF, TV producer Brad Falchuk enjoyed a quiet Mexican vacation in a teeny tiny beachfront villa ... BUILT FOR 12!

Okay, they've got Gwyneth's kids too, but they ain't that big. The 4-some rented the $20 million, 6-bedroom pad from Airbnb ... and likely chose it for its secluded vibe near the St. Regis Punta Mita. It ain't cheap ... $8k a night!

It's a stone's throw from another celeb magnet down in Mexico -- Joe Francis' baller pad.

Perks of Gwyneth's place include a private chef, yoga room, gym, and not just one, but 2 connecting infinity pools. So, yeah, not a bad place to watch sunsets.

Larry Flynt Passes on Playboy Mansion ... Takes Grave Jab at Hef

1/15/2016 9:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Flynt has 2 reasons for not wanting to buy the newly listed Playboy Mansion -- no sloppy seconds and no sticky sheets. 

We talked with the Hustler honcho -- and Hugh Hefner's longtime nemesis -- outside Craig's in West Hollywood, and it's clear he won't be dropping $200 mil on Hef's pad ... partly because he's looking for something more original.

Larry's also got beef with the fact Hef gets to stay in the mansion until he dies -- and he's got a strong opinion about when that will happen!   

Playboy Mansion It's NOT a Teardown!!!

1/12/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0111_irreplaceable_playboy_mansion_launchThe Playboy Mansion may not be leveled for a brand new mansion after it's sold, because we've learned Hugh Hefner himself commissioned plans to expand the crib and bring it up to date.  

Sources connected to the property tell us, there are plans to expand and restore the 20,000 square foot mansion, which was built in 1927. We're told Hef had the idea of doing it himself but the years caught up with him and he never went through with it. 

Our sources say the plans call for expanding the property to around 35,000 square feet, which would be an appropriate size for the main house on 6 acres of prime real estate in Holmby Hills. 

We're told the property -- listed jointly by The Agency and Hilton & Hyland -- is NOT being marketed as a teardown. The woodwork throughout the house is magnificent, the living room and foyer are incredible and the architecture spectacular.  

As for the pricing -- $200 million -- although it's high for sure, some real estate experts say the land alone could be worth $90 mil, and the house is historic and awesome. So, who knows?
