Real Estalker Rumors: Tyra Banks, Joe Jonas, and Ted Danson

Ever since Your Mama returned from our long vacay and got back up in the property gossiping saddle this week, we’ve been flooded with tons of celebrity-related real estate rumors and gossip, so we thought we’d shovel a few off our plate in one fell swoop…

Your Mama hears from veteran celebrity real estate canary Knancy Knowsthedish that supermodel turned reality TV queen Tyra Banks (pictured, above) has recently and secretly scoped out a few big, new and glassy contemporaries in the Beverly Hills Post Office area with asking prices up to about $10 million.

Miss Tyra already owns a house in the Beverly Crest area of the 90210 that she picked up in June 2004 for $3.085 million as well as a big spread in New York City. In early 2009 she dropped about $10 million on four contiguous units on two high floors of an eco-minded complex in New York City’s Battery Park City. Her yearlong combination of the four units reportedly drove her new neighbors bonkers.

Our research indicates the smizing catwallker still owns a 2,077 square foot 2 bedroom and 2.5 bathroom apartment in a Beaux-Arts pre-war building in lower Manhattan’s SoHo area that she bought in March 2005 for about $2.1 million. We turned up loads of digital evidence that the apartment was up for lease on the open market in 2011 and 2012, first for $13,950 per month and later for $13,000 per month.

Ever-vigilant real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak says she’ll “swear on the soft shells of innocent baby freshwater turtles” that Dustin Lance Black’s newest neighbor in Hollywood’s Sunset Square area is none other than Joe Jonas. (In case the children get all those Jonas Brothers mixed up like Your Mama does, Joe Jonas is the young fella who, back in 2008, made the foolish mistake of breaking up with Taylor Swift over the phone. Remember that? Anyhoo…)

Property records show the house in question sold in late May for $2.595 million. The deal appears to have gone off market but older listing details we squirreled up out of the internets from 2011, when the property last changed hands, show the “’story book’ traditional” was built in 1923 and configured with four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,888 square feet.

And, finally, up and coming tipster Ben d’Yourear sent Your Mama a covert communiqué to let us know that Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen quietly sold their Brentwood home for somewhere around six million bucks.

If Mister d’Yourear is right, they realized a hefty profit since property records (and etc.) indicate the low-key couple picked up the fairly modest if hardly inexpensive 3,316 square foot residence on a tree-lined street conveniently walking distance to the celebrity-approved Brentwood County Mart in October, 2009 for $3.11 million.

For the record, property records don’t reflect a transfer of ownership — yet — but it’s not so surprising The Danson-Steenburgens would want to unload their Brentwood abode since, if y’all may recall, they shelled out $3.47 million in April for a Craftsman cottage in Santa Monica’s coveted Rustic Canyon.

The decorated veteran showbizzers also maintain a nearly 10-acre spread in semi-rural Ojai (Calif.) — it was previously owned by Ellen DeGeneres — as well as a land-locked, two-house compound of about six acres on Massachusetts’s Martha’s Vineyard.
