Are Ya House Hunting???

 

The mansion featured in the '80s TV series Magnum: PI is for sale. According to Yahoo news, the beachfront property named Pahonu is on the market for $15.75 million. No wonder the detective famously played by Tom Selleck stayed in its guest house.

Built in 1933, the five-bedroom, six-bath house covers 11,000 square feet and rests on three acres of choice Oahu property. While famous for its use on Magnum, Pahonu has never been opened to the public and its gates remain locked. But due to Hawaii's laws mandating open access to its beaches, tourists have been able to see it from the water's edge.

 

Paul Walker Left His Entire Estate To......

 

Paul Walker reportedly left his entire $25 million estate to his 15-year-old daughter Meadow. The Fast & Furious star's will also asks that his mother be named the guardian of Meadow’s fortune until she’s an adult. That could set up a family feud as Meadow lives with her mom, Rebecca Soteros.

 

As reported Monday......

Hollywoodlife.com and Vulture claim the Red Hot Chili Peppers may not have played live at the Super Bowl because their guitars were not plugged in. Famed guitarist Joe Bonamassa Tweeted: Flea... I mean we all know, but for god's sake at least try to humor the children. #unpluggedlive

** UPDATE **

Flea Tweeted: No trickery. No choice, but no trickery

He then wrote: "When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song 'Give It Away' at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL's stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the T.V. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.

It is a sacred thing for us, and anyone who has ever seen us in concert (like the night before the Super Bowl at the Barclays Center), knows that we play from our heart, we improvise spontaneously, take musical risks, and sweat blood at every show. For the actual performance, Josh [Klinghoffer, guitar], Chad [Smith, drums], and I were playing along with the prerecorded track so there was no need to plug in our guitars, so we did not. Could we have plugged them in and avoided bumming people out who have expressed disappointment that the instrumental track was pre recorded? Of course easily we could have and this would be a nonissue. We thought it better to not pretend. It seemed like the realest thing to do in the circumstance. It was like making a music video in front of a gazillion people, except with live vocals, and only one chance to rock it. Our only thought was to bring the spirit of who we are to the people."

 

And How About This....

Roger Ebert's wife tells the Huff Post that Roger wanted Phillip Seymour Hoffman to play him in a movie about himself. ''Sunday was hard, when I heard of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death. We always thought -- Roger said he is one of the best, most versatile actors ever. He was also a brilliant man. Roger always said, 'If you ever do a movie where you need someone to play me, I want Philip Seymour Hoffman to play me.'"

The NY Post claims Hoffman spent $1,200 on his last drug buy
