…From the always informative and highly entertaining Kenny Kissintell that celebrity house flipper Diane Keaton–who sold her Ralph Flewelling-designed Beverly Hills mansion to Glee creator Ryan Murphy last year–recently leased another celebrity-owned home in Los Angeles. According to Kenny, a real estate yenta if there ever was one, Miz Keaton decamped her former home in the Bev Hills flats to rom-com queen Meg Ryan’s Spanish-style stunner in the hoity–toity hills of Bel Air.
Naturally Your Mama isn’t privy to what Miz Keaton pays Miz Ryan for the privilege of shacking up in her gorgeous gated estate, but we do know from a myriad of previous reports that the property was put our for lease in the fall of 2010 with a pocketbook scorching asking price of $40,000 per month. The 6,877 square foot meticulously renovated house has 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and smoldering fashion guru turned filmmaker Tom Ford as a next door neighbor.
Miz Ryan, who has been trying to sell her Bel Air residence on and off since the dawn of time, currently spends most of her time either at her getaway on Chappaquiddick Island–that’s Martha’s Vineyard, puppies–or in New York City where it was reported last year in the New York Post that she signed lease agreements for a $25,000 per month three bedroom spread at the Jean Nouvel-designed 40 Mercer in SoHo.
