Michelle Stafford puts Los Feliz home on the market for $2.5M
The oversized rooms in the 4,533-square-foot house feature period details such as stained leaded-glass windows and decoratively painted ceiling beams. The entry rotunda is replicated in the lower level guest suite and leads to a terrace. The update kitchen opens to a family room. The master suite, one of four bedrooms, has a round walk-in closet. The five bathrooms feature custom tile work.

Public records show Stafford bought the property in 2007 for $2,525,000 and has listed it for $2,499,000.

Sarah Brown has a new look on DAYS
"As an actor, I was trained that it was very important to make every character different," asserts Brown. "With Madison, it's a lot of fun because she's really cutting edge. I'm stealing from Sarah Jessica Parker's SEX AND THE CITY look. There are softer fabrics and pieces of jewelry that you won't find on anyone else on the show. There won't be as much black and dark colors for this character. Sandy/Agnes wore soft feminine colors, but she was much more cautious about the way she dressed. Madison's the boss, so she can pretty much do what she wants!"

Janine Malloy to terrorize Phil Mitchell with a parrot in EASTENDERS
Charlie Brooks, who plays the Walford vixen, said of the deal: "You know, I think Janine had an inkling that Roxy selling to her was going to rub Phil up the wrong way. Actually, her intention is to buy him out as well. She does everything she can to irritate him – starting off with buying a parrot."

EDITOR'S NOTE: African Grey parrots are the greatest pets in the world!

Julianne Moore: People want to laugh
