Clearly we have a love affair with the celebrities of the world. There are entire TV shows and websites dedicated to how they live their lives from the mundane everyday things to the latest scandals. What is our great fascination with them? Do we want the fame or the fortune, or just the ability to live like them? Well, you can live like them or at least stay in one of their residences. You might not get a star of the Walk of Fame, but you can now at least live temporarily in one of your favorite stars homes.
