While I was in New York a few weeks ago, a little birdie told me where Kate Hudson’s SoHo townhouse was located, so of course, I just had to stalk it. 🙂 Kate lives in a very cute three story brick walk-up with a red door in a very trendy part of SoHo. And it just so happens that her pad is currently for sale for $5,625,000, which isn’t half bad for New York prices. The townhouse, which was built in the 1830’s and was once home to John Jacob Astor, is 4,105 square feet, has four bedrooms, a basement apartment with a separate entrance, four fireplaces, 3.5 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, an outdoor deck, and a private garden. You can see interior pics of Kate’s home on its real estate website here. Her house is absolutely adorable inside. Kate has some good taste. 🙂
While stalking Kate’s place, I happened to notice a large, red “No Standing” sign (pictured above) posted just outside of her front door. I asked my boyfriend if he thought the city installed the sign to ward off paparazzi. Instead of answering, he just stood there and laughed at me. Apparently, in New York terminology, “standing” means a driver who is sitting in a parked car with their engine idling while waiting for a passenger. LOL After that explanation, I started noticing “No Standing” signs posted all over the city – not just in front of celeb houses. 🙂 I guess I’ll just chalk that one up to another blonde moment. 🙂 LOL
Got this photo of Kate leaving her NY home off the LMFAMOUSAO Celebrity Gossip & Entertainment News Website. You can see more pics of Kate in front of her house here.
Until next time, Happy Stalking! 🙂
Stalk It: Kate’s New York digs are located at 43 King Street in SoHo.
After leaving Arrojo Studio, I marched my new Katie Holmes’ haircut right over to Katie Holmes’ apartment building to do some stalking. I have long been obsessed with Katie, ever since the Dawson’s Creek days, so I just had to stalk her New York City apartment while in town. My boyfriend actually wanted to surprise me by locating Katie’s New York address all on his own, but after a few hours of searching he couldn’t come up with anything. LOL He’s just not that good of a stalker, I guess. Isn’t that so cute, though! Anyway, I had an easier time in locating her address – I just googled images of Katie Holmes in New York and this paparazzi video came up with her building’s name in clear view. Katie is currently living in a loft in the upscale American Felt Building during her “All My Sons” Broadway run. The American Felt Building is a former office building that was built in 1906 and is located in the East Village, one of my favorite parts of New York. In 1984 the offices were converted into upscale lofts. Tommy purchased the loft where Katie now resides back in 1985 and, interestingly enough, even lived there with ex-wife Nicole Kidman for a short time. Apparently the building is no stranger to celebrity inhabitants. According to this article, author Bret Easton Ellis (he wrote the novel American Psycho), some Stokes band-members, and former child actor and 80s popstar Martika (I used to LOVE the song “More Than You Know”!) have all lived in the building at one time or another.
There weren’t nearly as many paparazzi camped out in front of Katie’s building as I had imagined there would be. I had seriously envisioned mass pandemonium outside of her place, but there were really only about 8 men with cameras on Katie patrol. So of course I just had to talk to them. 🙂 I must say I was very impressed with the New York paps. They were sooo incredibly nice! All of the L.A. paparazzi I have encountered have been total jerks, but Katie’s paps were super friendly and talked to my boyfriend and me for a good twenty minutes. When I first walked up to them, I asked if the building was in fact Katie Holmes’ place and one of them laughed and said “Are you a stalker or something?” LOL He couldn’t have called it better! 🙂 I asked the paps if Katie is pretty in person and they said that she definitely is and that both she and Tom are also very nice. I was shocked to hear, though, that the real star of the family is Suri. Apparently, it is the photos of Suri that bring in the most cash. I was surprised hearing that as I really could care less about Suri! LOL I’d much rather see pictures of Katie to check out her clothes and view her latest haircut. But I guess I am in the minority on that one. LOL 🙂
On of the paps was especially nice to me, so I just had to take a picture with him. He even let me hold his camera during the pic! I’ve never, ever seen a camera quite so large or so heavy! It was amazing! You might be asking yourself why there is a large pink circle covering the pap’s face in the above pic. LOL He had asked that I not show his face on my blog, but not for reasons you might think. He said he wasn’t really looking his best that day and if he had known I was going to take his picture he would have fixed his hair. LOL My boyfriend thought it was incredibly ironic that a paparazzi would be camera shy. But he didn’t choose a career in the public eye, so he is allowed to be camera shy. 🙂
Until next time, Happy Stalking! 🙂
Stalk It: Katie lives in the American Felt Building which is located at 114 East 13th Street in New York City.
Took a little stalking trip to Encino last week to stalk Corey Feldman’s house from the reality show The Two Coreys. I had found Corey’s address on fave website Virtual Globetrotting and even though I am so not a fan of the guy, I had to stalk it because like climber George Mallory said about Mt. Everest – “It’s there.” 🙂
Sadly, there’s not a whole lot of Corey’s house to see from the street as the home is located behind a gate, down a long, curving driveway and his property is lined with huge view-blocking trees. Even with the minimal view, though, the house is definitely recognizable from the Corey’s reality show. According to Zillow (which also has a good bird’s eye view of the home), Corey’s McMansion measures 4,400 square feet, is nestled on a 27,000 square foot lot, and has the following amenities: BBQ area, gated entrance, fireplace, garden, pool, spa and jetted tubs.
Also according to Zillow, the home was last purchased in 2005, which leads me to believe that it truly is owned by Corey Feldman and was not just rented for the filming of the show. While I was there, two guys were working on Corey’s front gate and I asked them if Corey did in fact live there. They told me they “weren’t allowed to talk about it” which pretty much answered my question. 🙂 LOL
One thing that you actually can see from the street is Corey’s mailbox. I honestly don’t know what it is with celebrities and their mailboxes, but it seems like every movie star house I stalk has a seriously hideous mailbox. LOL Maybe it’s a celeb thing and someday when I am rich and famous I’ll understand, but for now I just don’t get it. 🙂
Until next time, Happy Stalking! 🙂
Stalk It: Corey Feldman’s house is located at 16221 Elisa Place in Encino. As always, excercise caution when “stalking” and do not disturb the residents in any way.
