Celebrity Names You’re Definitely Spelling Wrong

Want to be Gellars neighbor? There are 435 homes currently for sale in Brentwood. Zillow Mark Wahlberg recently sold his Beverly Hills home for $12.995 million. Mark Wahlberg has found success in a number of roles: model, singer, actor and producer. Despite his well-rounded talents, he didnt find quite the same level of success when it came to selling his home. His sprawling house at 9694 Oak Pass Rd, Beverly Hills, Calif., was first listed in 2008 for $15.9 million. After a series of price chops as well as some time on and off the market, the house just sold for $12.995 million, according to the L.A. Times , which is quite a discount. Wahlberg, however, only paid $4.95 million for the home in 2001. He did, though, complete a full remodel of the house, adding a number of celebrity-worthy features. One of the biggest additions was a full gym that includes a two-story boxing ring and was the reported location for Wahlbergs training for his Oscar-nominated role in The Fighter. The house sits on 1.73 acres and has seven bedrooms, 10.5 bathrooms, a theater room, as well as a guest house, putting green and pool with waterfall, grotto and spa. Zillow Mischa Barton is trying once again to sell her Beverly Hills home. Its a gorgeous, Spanish-inspired estate on over an acre, but Mischa Barton doesnt seem to be interested. Rather, the star best known for her role on TVs popular show The O.C. is still trying to sell the sprawling home.

A native of Atlanta , Blaine was an honor student at Westminster School and, according to a friend, Peggy Ballard of Atlanta , Blaine considered herself a Buckhead girl all her life. Blaine, a University of Georgia graduate, learned to love travel during a two-month tour of Europe. Joining Osborne Travel Service in Atlanta , she divided her time between lining up clients for luxury and student trips to Europe, Asia or the South Pacific and acting as a guide overseas. In 1972, an airliner carrying her and her clients overshot the runway while landing in Tahiti and had to be evacuated because the plane had caught fire. Her sister, Helen Heyd of Atlanta , said Blaine was the last passenger to exit after checking to make sure all her clients were safe outside and after rescuing a satchel containing their travel documents. Thats just the way Carolyn was, Heyd said. She stayed cool during a crisis. Heyd said her sister prized orderliness, adding that Blaine arranged her clothes closets as meticulously as she planned celebrity events. In 1986 Blaine moved to California and was always on the go during the Hollywood phase of her career, according to a friend, Bill Leonard of Rancho Mirage, Calif. He said she became a personal assistant of Los Angeles Dodger star Steve Garvey and arranged social and publicity events for him and charity affairs for the Dodger organization. She networked with other personal assistants and got to know movie stars who employed them, becoming a regular presence at Academy Awards ceremonies.
