Celebrity Real Estate: Joy Behar, Jason Segel, Jackie Collins
By Laura Vecsey
Joy Behar Lists Her Beach Home for $3.8M
Joy Behar, the newly-returned host of “The View,” has listed her East Hampton vacation home for sale, seeking $3.8 million for the 4,000-square-foot, cedar shake-sided home. She paid about $1 million less than that for the light-filled home about four years ago.
Set on just under an acre of grassy, flat land about 3 miles from the beach, Behar said she liked the spaciousness of the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home. But with a new deal inked for “The View,” and a history of owning homes on the East End of Long Island, maybe Behar is ready for something new.
Behar is not the only talk show host seeking to make some real estate changes. Oprah, Suze Orman and Rosie O’Donnell have recently made some big moves.
Jason Segel Buys Los Feliz Digs
“How I Met Your Mother” star Jason Segel has bought a Mediterranean-style home in Los Angeles. The 1929 classic, with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, cost the actor $2.25 million.
He purchased the 2,500-square-foot home from Shepard Fairey, the artist who designed the bold Obama “Hope” poster during the 2008 presidential election. Segel is apparently keen on collecting property all around L.A. He owns a home in Hollywood Hills and two others in West Hollywood.
Jackie Collins’ Listing May Prove Best Seller
After losing her battle to breast cancer last year at age 77, Jackie Collins’ Beverly Hills’ mansion is ready for a new owner. The 21,000-square-foot blockbuster will hit the market for $30 million.
The prolific author of sexcapade books is said to have purchased the property back in 1988. Then she had a new home built on the property in 1992. The home has 8 bedrooms, 10 full and 5 half bathrooms and just a whole lot of interior bling to pump up the volume. That includes a 100-foot gallery space, where Collins hung her prized artwork.
