UPDATE: Rapino Sells to Faris and Pratt

SELLER: Michael Rapino
BUYERS: Anna Faris and Chris Pratt
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $3,300,000

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Back in late February (2013) Your Mama (dissed) and discussed a gated mock-Med villa above Hollywood in L.A.’s lower Nichols Canyon area then owned and listed by Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino and his actress missus Jolene Blalock. The 4,700+ square foot house had been a few weeks earlier with an asking price of $2,975,000 and, by the time we got around to reading the residence up and down, it was already in escrow.

Well, children—as an indication of the temperature of the upper end real estate market in Los Angeles, there must have been multiple offers on the three bedroom and 3.5 bathroom mini-estate because property records show it sold in early March for—drum roll please—$3.3 million.

It was The Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial that first got Your Mama sniffing back around the property records and we came up stymied. Our always impeccably well informed friend and confidant Lucy Spillerguts, on the other hand, snitched with the utmost confidence that property was purchased for $325,000 over the asking price by up and coming comedic power pair Anna Faris and Chris Pratt.

In addition to her voice over work on the animated sitcom series King of the Hill in the early to mid Aughts and a handful of money making animated movies that include Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise, Miz Faris’s resume includes a growing list of well regarded feature films like Lost In Translation and Brokeback Mountain. She also has under her professional belt a number of schlocky but successful movies such as Scary Movie (1, 2, 3 and 4) and a couple of goofy rom-coms like The House Bunny and the dismal performing What’s Your Number. All careers have warts, right?

Mister Pratt cut his Showbiz teeth in the early and mid-Aughts on popular programs like Everwood and The O.C. He currently does a downright stand up job as one of the charmingly idiosyncratic doofuses—doofi?—on the the sitcom Parks and Recreation. His credits also include a few serious movies like Zero Dark Thirty and Moneyball as well as a silly rom com or two like the dismal performing The Five Year Engagement. All careers have warts, right?

Avid, long-time followers of the celebrity real estate scene may recall that way back in 2007 Miz Faris and her first and ex husband, actor Ben Indra, pushed their Hollywood Hills house on the market with an asking price of $1,995,000, the exact same price they paid for the place two years earlier. Property records do not reflect a transfer of ownership and it’s Your Mama’s understanding from several nearly always reliable sources that the house was retained by Miz Faris who remained in residence with her second husband—that would be Mister Pratt—and their small child.
