The Bieb’s new digsThe Hollywood Reporter addresses the question we’ve all been wondering since the days of Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica: why do hot, young, rich, famous people live in Calabasas and neighboring Hidden Hills? Calabasas has just 23,000 residents and a full 84 percent of them (totally made up number) are international pop stars or have had a show on Bravo. Here’s how former Hidden Hills mayor (and producer/entertainment lawyer, of course) David Stanley describes the appeal: “We have no sidewalks or street lights. People are out walking, the kids gather at the community center to swim and BBQ, and once a year we put on a parade to celebrate the founding of our city — marching bands and all.” Which doesn’t really explain Justin Bieber’s attraction, does it? (He just bought a house in Calabasas for $6.5 million). THR thinks it might be “the privacy, the safety (even if an inordinate number of houses boast panic rooms anyway) and the value of property vis-a-vis the Westside,” not to mention the “well-regarded public Las Virgenes Unified School District.” And then there’s the self-perpetuation factor, or as a Ewing & Associates partner says: “They think, if it’s good enough for [those celebrities] to live here…then it must be good enough for us.” To that point, we’ve rarely seen so many bold faced names in a single article (even in The Hollywood Reporter), so for funsies, we thought we’d list them all out. Here are 26 of the notable names who live in Calabasas or Hidden Hills:Justin Bieber Tommy Lee Garry Sinise Ken Jeong Katherine Jackson Rebecca Romijn/Jerry O’Connell Brandy Kendra Wilkinson AMPAS President Tom Sherak Miramax owner Ron Tutor The Kardashians Kourtney Kardashian Nikki Sixx Richie Sambora Denise Richards Nicollette Sheridan Melissa Etheridge Drake (Drake!?!?) Jennifer Lopez Eddie Cibrian/LeAnn Rimes Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Beau Bridges Ozzy/Sharon Osbourne · Why Celebrities Like Justin Bieber Are Flocking to L.A.’s Suburbia [THR]
