  • Rent Leonardo DiCaprio’s Palm Springs Bachelor Pad [35 Photos]

    Is Leonardo DiCaprio having financial troubles? He recently rented out his $10 million East Village apartment and now he’s renting the Palm Springs estate he bought just a year ago. Hmmm…maybe his new love Rihanna is just making sure he can’t escape to one of his bachelor pads for a secret date with a model or twelve. Whatever the reason, his loss is your gain. As long as you have a ton of cash. For $4,500 per night, you and plenty of friends can stay at Leo’s 7,022-square-foot California digs. With six bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, there’s plenty of room for you and the huge posse you’ll need to split the cost. And with a swimming pool, tennis court, sauna, and piano, there’s plenty to keep you busy until you (quickly) run out of cash. But good news: daily maid service and free WiFi is included!

  • The 25 Biggest Celebrity Wax Figure Fails

    No, these aren’t the final projects from the art students at Madame Tussaud’s School for the Blind. They are legit wax figures from museums all over the world, museums that obviously rely heavily on the dollars of nearsighted tourists. Do we even need wax museums anymore? Haven’t we reached the point where we can just use holograms or 3D print them or something? Now excuse me while I poke around my brain with a Q-Tip in hopes of killing the memory of the Seinfeld cast wax figures.

The $28,000-a-night luxury pad features six bedrooms, a recording studio, a movie theater, a private pool, and a whiskey bar. Fellow “pussy posse” buds Tobey Maguire and Kevin Connolly were also there, along with Chris Rock, Lana Del Rey, Salma Hayek, and even Jon Bon Jovi. Well at least now we know why Leo never got back to us about partying at RSVLTS HQ. Maybe next year…
