Katie Holmes Leases $25K A Month NYC Penthouse


She just can't stay away from the Big Apple!

Katie Holmes is leasing a $25K a month penthouse apartment in the Chelsea area of NYC, the New York Post reports. She isn't new to the neighborhood, though! Following her split from Tom Cruise three years ago, the actress rented a pad nearby, but for half the price of her current digs!

The fully furnished abode has a modern feel and a sleek design, and boasts 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, as well as a wood burning fireplace, gourmet kitchen, cozy living room, and a master suite with updated touches like a walk-in shower and duel sinks.

In addition to having a view of the Empire State Building and World Trade Center, the property also has a landscaped terrace that provides outdoor space and panoramic scenery from every angle.

The Dawson's Creek star purchased a Calabasas home late last year, so now she's officially bicoastal!

Michelle Williams In Contract To Buy $2.45 Million Brooklyn Fixer-Upper Mansion


It's not Dawson's Creek, but it will do!

Michelle Williams is in contract to buy this Brooklyn mansion for $2.45 million, Real Estalker reports. Known as "the Tara of Prospect Park South," the home definitely needs some massive renovations, but the structure itself is straight out of Gone With The Wind.

The 6,480 square-foot residence was designed by architects Robert Bryson and Charles Pratt and was built in the 1900s. It boasts 8 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, as well as wood burning fireplaces and original tile work and mantles. Design details like the grand "bridal" staircase, Corinthian columns, and the stained glass skylight make the home completely charming.

The best feature of the home is its multiple balconies and terraces, but there's not that much room in terms of land, as it sits on a mere .3 acres.

The Golden Globe winner will reside there with her daughter Matilda, 8. The blonde beauty recently parted with her other Brooklyn town home in Boerum Hill, which she sold for over a million more than the asking price! We'd say that gives her more than enough cash to polish up her new estate!

Johnny Depp Lists Massive French Estate For $25 Million


Johnny Depp has listed his gorgeous estate in Plan-de-la-Tour, France for a whopping $25 million. So what exactly does $25 million buy you? A whole lot of land (37 acres to be exact), a Pirates of the Caribbean-themed wine cellar and get this -- Dirt reports that the spread includes an entire 19th-century hameau (a small village) with more than a dozen structures.

Depp and former partner Vanessa Paradis purchased the property in in 2001, and though it's not known how much they paid for the place, they reportedly dropped $10 million to restore and update it.

The main house has approximately 4,300 square feet of living space with five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, and the guest cottages on the property bring the total square footage to 10,376.

One of the guest houses used to be a church, and the estate has a courtyard that looks like a town square. In fact, the garage and laundry facility were designed to look like actual stores, and there is another spot that looks like a restaurant which is apparently used as a dining room. There are two pools and a full gym on the property, along with a private skate park and half-pipe.

This is like something straight out of a Disney theme park!

Country star/actress Reba McEntire has unloaded her Beverly Park mansion for $22.25 million in an off-market sale. When you consider that she bought the place for just $9 million back in 2003, she ended up getting a pretty sweet deal!

The home sits on 1.8 acres of land, and various websites report the living space to be between 9,200 and 13,000 square feet. Since the home was sold on the DL, not much info is available, but according to a source for Dirt, the place has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

The home has formal living and dining rooms, a den, a built-in wet bar and a massive family room, and outside there is a giant swimming pool with a spa, a tennis court and a pond.

Famous neighbors include Mark Wahlberg, Sylvester Stallone, and Samuel L. Jackson, though the person who purchased the pad is apparently NOT a celeb.
