Façades of the Stars

This past weekend I went on a Starline Movie Star Homes Tour.  I know it's tacky, and I could claim that I did it because I had an out of town guest, but in reality, I was super excited to go.  I left the tour with a ton of pictures of privacy gates, and the glow that you get when you look at a lot of high-end real estate.  

Here are some of the highlights:

Gene Kelly was just so tasteful.  His home could be a film set where the happiest family in the world live.

Of course Marilyn Monroe's house is cute and pink.  This is exactly the house I would have dreamed up for her.

Ryan Murphy (creator of Glee) landscapes with cacti, but somehow it feels green and lush.  I don't think I have ever seen cacti done so well.

Christina Aguilera lives in the home which was previously owned by the Osbournes while they were filming their reality show.  A little too pink for my taste.

A celebrity doesn't live here, unless you consider someone who gets to have this epic roof a celebrity.  I know I do.
