Check Out The Luxury Yacht Beyonce And Jay Z Are Renting For $1.1 Million A Week

Beyonce and Jay Z are currently sailing around the south of France in the Alfa Nero, and we were shocked when we looked up the luxury yacht and saw that it rents out for $1.1 million a week! We know the supercouple is worth about $1 billion, but still! That's a LOT of dough for a boat...

The 267-foot vessel was launched in 2007 by Dutch shipyard OceAnco, and it can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins plus 26 crew members. So what makes it so special? There are three separate dining areas, a bridge deck room, a dance room, a separate crew lounge, an elevator connecting all decks, two al fresco hot tubs, a massage room and get this -- a 7 x 3.5m swimming pool, which is one of the largest ever incorporated on a yacht. Only the best for Queen Bey! And seeing as she just turned 33 last week, it seems like this was one heck of a birthday trip!

As far as other fancy features, there is a glass-ended pool whose floor can be partially or fully raised and turned into dance floor or a helipad, and there's also an open aft deck that hangs off the side of the boat, with enough room for two people to enjoy a romantic dinner together. From the decor to the amenities, this is pretty much the nicest ship we've ever seen.

Teresa Giudice Lists New Jersey Mansion For $4 Million

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe have listed their New Jersey home for $3,999,000, and seeing as they're about to face jail time in their fraud case, this is pretty good timing!

The couple purchased the home for $530,000 in 2001, but they didn't move in until 2008, after they completely gutted the place and increased the 5,000-square-foot property to a whopping 10,044 square feet.

The stone and stucco home sits on over 3.5 acres of land, and according to listing info there are 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. There is a two-story entrance with double Cinderella staircases, and from the castle-like exterior of the home to the gaudy interior decor (lots of gold and marble), this home is anything but simple and modern.

The great room features a large wood burning fireplace, and there's a balcony upstairs that overlooks the space. The master bedroom has three custom walk-in closets and a gas fireplace, and the master bath has onyx tile, a steam shower, and a soaking tub.

You know they're going to miss all this when they're chowing down on prison food in an 8' x 8' cell!
