Multi-Million Dollar Musical Houses
May 17, 2006

Brad and Jennifer are selling, and Nick and Jessica are buying separately.

While searching for the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood used to be a process, more and more stars are now buying homes from other stars. After all, if Kevin Costner used to live there, how bad can it be?

"Extra's" Jerry Penacoli has your guide to all the celebrities trading spaces. So forget those pesky, outdated star maps the next time you drive through Hollywood!

Halle Berry recently bought a palatial Tuscan-style mansion from "Malcolm in the Middle" star Frankie Muniz. He sold the 4,500-square-foot home for $6 million because, as he put it, "It's a lot of house for just me."

But one home just isn't enough for Halle. The Oscar winner also owns a seaside sand castle in Malibu.

"American Idol" frontman, Ryan Seacrest, traded up from his Hollywood Hills pad for an $11 million Spanish hacienda he bought from Kevin Costner. And before Costner occupied the spacious pad, it was home-sweet-home to Richard Dreyfuss.

The Nick Lachey-Jessica Simpson split has also had an impact on the real estate market. Newly single Nick sought solace in Heidi Klum and Seal's $5.5 million home, while Jess snagged Ellen DeGeneres' Beverly Hills mansion for $3 million.

Meanwhile, the former love nest of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston is finally a distant memory for the old lovebirds. Their $28 million, 10,000-square-foot compound recently sold after they reduced the price to a must-sell $25 million.

Adding to her already vast real estate empire, Oprah recently spent $24 million on two Maui estates. The talk show queen already owns three Hawaiian properties. Aloha!

Back in Oprah's beloved Windy City, Vince Vaughn is moving in. He sold his bachelor pad, which was located down the street from Brad Pitt's place, in exchange for a cool $1.4 million condo.
