Guess they’ve had enough of this house!
It looks like Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman are taking baby Olive and moving out of their gorgeous Montecito home! The married couple have officially listed their Santa Barbara
home estate for a whopping $ 7.5 million!
The gorgeous 6,000 square foot, six bedroom-eight bath property holds many memories for the two. If you recall, it’s where Drew and Will said their ‘I do’s’ ..awww!
But we’re sure they’ll be calling an even nicer place home soon enough!
Ch-ch-check out pictures of the home (below)!!

Jennifer Like Hewitt has went beachside!
The Client List star bought a GORGEOUS $ 3.25 million home last month in the scenic Pacific Palisades, CA.
The 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom contemporary two-tale pad is a roomy 2,500 square-feet with a steel, concrete, glass and wood structure.
But will Jennifer make the new house (below) a like nest for her new co-star boytoy, Brian Hallisay??
A source dished:
“Jennifer is more pleased than she’s ever been. She can’t wait to set up house and start a family with Brian.”
Sounds like it!
In fact, Brian was reportedly in tow when Jennifer did the house hunt!
A house buy means these two are one step closer to sealing the deal.
We’re officially on baby bump AND engagement ring watch!

Daniel Craig may be worth every penny for the job he does as James Bond in the 2 1/2 hour Skyfall, but should we really prorate it for public appearances?
The actor reportedly received a whopping ONE MILLION DOLLAR paycheck for a small spokesperson work, showing up and taking pics in front of the new Range Rover at the New York Auto Show.
But after a VERY quick photo shoot, Daniel hightailed it out of there! Onlookers said he was there only a few minutes before bolting! One unsatisfied guest said:
“I couldn’t even tell if he was really here.”
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see for yourself if the actor’s wordless appearance seems worth it.
A representative from Range Rover chose to focus on the positive. He said:
“We won’t comment on our relationship with Mr. Craig beyond confirming that Land Rover supports the charity S.A.F.E., of which the actor is a patron, and will continue its charitable efforts with a vehicle donation later this year.”
S.A.F.E. works to fight AIDS and female mutilation in Africa, a cause we’re certain 007 could get behind!

Lindsay Lohan’s Rent-A-Mansion DISASTER! Can’t Afford Rent AND STILL Screwed Million Dollar Decorators Out Of $200K!0
She could just be looking for a new place to LIVE, given the financial mess she’s gotten herself into regarding her latest living arrangement!
The troubled actress has been renting a mansion in Beverly Hills since last February for $ 8,000 a month, and now that the IRS has seized her bank accounts, she’s so desperate to pay the bills on time that she’s been BEGGING friends to lend her the cash!
And this is AFTER she got the folks at Bravo to spend close to $ 200,000 renovating the house for an episode of Million Dollar Decorators…and she STILL screwed them by refusing to end her filming obligations!
According to sources close to Lindsay, she agreed to participate in a segment, and at first was completely cooperative! She was spotted filming with the cast and crew while the network dished out all kinds of cash on expensive furniture back in March!
But, after show filmed the ENTIRE renovation process, they expected to come back in April to shoot a small scene where Lindsay was shown her newly pimped pad…except by that point, she had STOPPED returning their calls!
And worse yet, because the house is now SO messy, Bravo didn’t even BOTHER trying to come back and film, and instead used footage of the renovation without including the starlet!
Of course, we imagine that’s the LEAST of her worries now, given the fact that she can barely scrape two pennies together, let alone her monthly $ 8,000 rent!
Insiders reveal that when she signed the lease in February, things were looking up for her financially, so she didn’t seem too concerned about the cost! Of course, we all know how THAT’S turned out, and apparently, when she tried to break contract and go out early, her landlord warned her that the penalty would be MASSIVE!
What’s a girl supposed to do?!
Obviously, NOT stop wasting her money living in hotels for months on end across the country!
In fact, she’s telling friends that she’s going to try and make the payments until her lease ends in February, and then start looking for something permanent in New York!
Of course, that probably just means that she’ll be moving back to Long Island to live with Dina!
But given that she gave her mother $ 40,000 to keep that house out of foreclosure, we’d say she has more than enough right to stay there as long as she wants!
Better start charging Mommy Dearest rent, gurl!
You’re going to need SOME sort of income!

Though most people are all about showing like and excellent cheer this holiday season, One Million Moms is launching another protest against Ellen DeGeneres and JC Penney.
The conservative activist group, a part of the American Family Association, has begun its second such campaign this year, opposing Penney’s use of DeGeneres as a spokesperson because of her homosexual orientation.
Per the One Million Moms website, “Since April, J.C. Penney’s has not aired Ellen DeGeneres in one of their commercials until now. A new JCP ad features Ellen and three elves. JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets.”
Since kicking off their latest efforts OMM’s website has gone offline, though it’s not certain whether or not a hacker caused the crash or just an increase in traffic.
When Ryan Leslie‘s laptop- containing weeks of work toward a new album- was stolen, he promised a reward of ONE MILLION DOLLARS to whomever could return it!
But when Armin Augstein retrieved the laptop, Ryan refused to pay. So Mr. Augstein sued for it- and won!
Now the judge has ordered the Gibberish singer to pay the million dollar reward as promised.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear the tale straight from the hoarse‘s mouth- and to see his FIERY response!
Was Ryan right? Or should he have to pay the million bucks?
What the F?!?!
Mary J. Blige is involved in a rather expensive lawsuit from a defendant who claims Mary has defaulted on a loan and owes $ 2.2 Million dollars!
We really said that amount of money with our pinkie in our mouth while laughing in an evil manner.
The complaint was filed today by a bank in Manhattan who wants the original amount of money back plus $ 58,000 in interest. They say the singer took out the loan in October of 2011 and has not paid it back even though the original deadline passed in July of 2012.
We hope Blige had plenty of that green to repay the bank, and no we’re not talking about that kind of green.
We reckon you are mistaking Mary J. Blige for Mary Jane – HA!!!

Maybe there is such a thing as terrible press?
Despite being talked about around the world – Lindsay Lohan‘s much ballyhooed Lifetime film Liz & Dick drew only 3.5 million viewers.
That isn’t even close to what Steel Magnolias pulled in back in October.
The portrayal of the infamous like affair between Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton was the fourth most watched original movie premiere – which SOUNDS impressive until one remembers the lack of made-for-tv movies these days.
The numbers averaged 1.3 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic and 1.3 million adults 25-54.
Despite being ridiculed and saddled with disappointing ratings, Lohan stayed courageous and even tweeted:

Way to keep your head up, girl!
Hey! You know that if even the former Presidential candidate is checking it out during its opening weekend, you’ve got a hit on your hands!
That’s right, we’re now learning that Mitt Romney contributed to what Summit is estimating to be a $ 141.3 million debut for the concluding chapter to The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 2‘s opening weekend, which marks it as making nearly the exact amount its predecessor, Breaking Dawn – Part 1, made in a similar timeframe, and just below the franchise’s record-holder, New Moon!
On a much larger scale, but, the collective yucky will mark it as the EIGHTH largest opening weekend for a movie EVER…even though three of the movies ahead of it – The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Hunger Games – all opened this year, as well!
No shame in that, though!
We’re delighted to see that our beloved Edward and Bella could close out the year of mega-blockbusters with some sparkles!
Ch-ch-ch-check out the top ten largest box office opening weekends of all time…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
The Avengers, $ 200.3 million
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, $ 169.2 million
The Dark Knight Rises, $ 160.9 million
The Dark Knight, $ 158.4 million
The Hunger Games, $ 152.5 million
Spider-Man 3, $ 151.1 million
The Twilight Saga: New Moon, $ 142.8 million
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, $ 141.3 million
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, $ 138.1 million
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, $ 135.6 million
Looking as if she’s ready to drop some of her hard-earned cash in the name of riding in style, Kim Kardashian headed over to Prestige Imports car showroom in Miami, FL on Tuesday afternoon (October 30).
Joined by her PR pal Jonathan Cheban, the E! reality TV hottie rocked a knee-length gold skirt, strappy heels and a low cut top as she scoped out a rare automobile a.the high end dealer
According to a Prestige staffer, Miss Kardashian spent an hour looking at a Pagani Huayra, which is a made-to-order luxury vehicle that retails for around $ 2 million.
Aside from her car shopping session, the 32-year-ancient brunette beauty kept the prayers flowing for those affected by Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, as she most recently tweeted, “These pictures of the devastation are just shocking. My thoughts & prayers are with everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy.”
Alessandra Ambrosio was on the go yesterday, making two outfit changes and the same number of stops around LA. She picked up fresh flowers and groceries at a local grocery store and later in the day slipped into cutoff denim shorts that showed off her long legs. Alessandra’s been keeping busy in recent days, visiting a pumpkin patch and logging some bikini time in Malibu.
Soon enough, Alessandra will be packing up the family and heading east to NYC for this year’s annual Victoria’s Secret holiday fashion show. She’s been selected to model the $ 2.5 million Floral Fantasy Bra, the crown jewel of the runway presentation. Alessandra talked about the honor, saying, “I felt they made it for me. It’s very romantic. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time.” Tune in Dec. 4 to see Alessandra, Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, and the rest of the VS Angels hit the stage to music performed by Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Bruno Mars.
Elmo and Huge Bird aren’t going down without a
fight peaceful protest!
When Mitt Romney made his now-infamous remarks about PBS (which stands for Public Broadcasting Service, btw), threatening to cut its funding to tackle the national debt, he shocked us all.
So Michael Bellavia, an El Lay animation executive, had the thought for a Million Muppet March. And after he bought the domain name for his brainchild, he then realized that Idaho student Chris Mecham had separately thought of the thought and made it’s own Facebook page.
One phone call later and the two are now working together to get this protest moving!
Set for November 3 at the National Mall in D.C., the march made by these two Sesame Street fans is gaining steam! So be prepared for a lot of puppets and skits to go down at this like-fest!!
