Oh, how the other half lives. The world’s obsession with celebrities is so well documented that it’s hard to turn on a TV or computer without experiencing in some way or another the pure opulence of their lifestyles. Many celebrities actually live in a comprehensible manner, incorporating swag and style in an almost acceptable fashion. And then there are others that incorporate obscene amenities that prove they “deserve” anything but the average digs. After all, they are stars and what is the purpose of such stardom if they don’t shine, right? Here are some of the choice ways celebrities spend their extra pocket change.
Celine Dion’s Homestead Water Park
When Quebec chanteuse, Celine Dion, added to her average-sized family, the only thing more important than purchasing a glorious $72.5 million private oceanfront estate on Jupiter Island was obviously ensuring her children would never want to leave. Certainly the eight bedroom guest house is impressive enough. And the giant pool in the back is nothing to sneeze at. But the crème de la crème? Its unique and custom-made water park. The diva commissioned the addition by connecting the two original massive pools that came with the house with giant twisting slides and a gentle river at the bottom to collect the tots whenever they tire. All we can say is ooh, la, la.
Adrianne Palicki has been breaking hearts ever since she first appeared on NBC’s football drama “Friday Night Lights,” but these days, the Ohio-born actress has been making a name for herself on the big screen with roles in action films like “Red Dawn” and the upcoming “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” as fan favorite Lady Jaye.
Though she’s a far cry from the more butch version of the character we grew up watching on the 1980s animated series, it’s not the first time that Palicki has played an iconic female warrior. Her stint as the title character on David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” reboot may not have made it past the pilot stage, but if early stills from the show are any indication, it’s certainly not because the actress didn’t look the part.
It remains to be seen how her version of Lady Jaye will be received by longtime “G.I. Joe” fans, but we’re digging the updated image, which combines Palicki’s natural beauty with her tough, don’t-mess-with-me personality. In other words, she can kick ass and look good doing it.
The beautiful Tanit Phoenix returns as Katrina Banks in “Death Race 3: Inferno,” and she’s just as badass as ever. She has some pretty incredible fight scenes in this third installment of the “Death Race” series and one very hot scene as well.
Bullz-Eye.com was on location in South Africa for the filming of the movie, and senior photographer Paul Miller had the opportunity to talk to this stunning South African actress and model. He also helped the unit photographer set up some of the sexy photos above as well. Tanit has a great sense of humor as you can see in this video, and you’ll definitely want to pick up the Blu-ray/DVD set after watching her interview.
Bullz-Eye.com was on location in South Africa for the filming of “Death Race 3: Inferno,” which is out on Blu-ray/DVD on January 22nd.

They include Tanya van Graan who plays Amber, Charlbi Dean Kriek who plays Calamity J and Kim Engelbrecht who plays Kelly O’Donnell.

We’ve been fans of the beautiful Joy Bryant since she appeared in “Antwone Fisher” and we’ve enjoyed watching her have a successful career in Hollywood. Now she’s taking on a new project with “Across the Board,” a new web video series produced by Reserve Channel, an original YouTube channel. It’s an action talk show hosted by Joy where she dives deep into conversation with celebrity guests while they board around. In the episode featured below, Joy invites her “Parenthood” co-star, Erika Christensen, for a day of paddle boarding and girl talk. The duo discuss Christensen’s beginnings as a child actor, her role as a teenage drug addict in “Traffic,” being a curvy woman in a pencil-thin business, and her faith as a Scientologist.
We were sold on this as soon as we saw the two of them in bikinis, but the interview is excellent as well. We think Joy is onto something here. Check it out and look for new episodes as well.
