‘Bridesmaids’ Carnie Wilson’s Home Listed as Short Sale
Although 90s pop trio “Wilson Phillips,” experienced a brief resurgence of fame with an appearance in the blockbuster comedy “Bridesmaids,” one of their members looks like she won’t be able to “hold on” to her home.
While Carnie Wilson’s home is currently listed as a short sale on the Tarzana real estate market, court documents released by TMZ paint a more dire situation. Wilson’s home is scheduled to go up for auction July 21 if Wilson does not settle her payments, TMZ said.
According to the foreclosure documents filed in the L.A. County Recorder’s Office, Carnie defaulted on her mortgage and still owes over $1.6 million on her house.
Carnie, her sister Wendy Wilson, and childhood friend Chynna Phillips formed “Wilson Phillips” in 1989 and had three number one singles before they disbanded in 1993. Carnie went on to host her own talk show and made a few other television appearances. Currently she stars in a reality TV show entitled “Carnie Wilson: Unstapled.”
The Los Angeles real estate market, like many of the markets throughout the U.S., was adversely affected by the recession. While the median Tarzana home values are still high at $612,100, they have dropped 7.6 percent year-over-year according to Zillow Real Estate Market Reports. Carnie isn’t the only celebrity to face foreclosure—Nicolas Cage and a few Real Housewives are others who have had mortgage problems.
Carnie’s home, which she shares with her husband and children, is a gated and walled property with five bedrooms and five baths. The home features a large kitchen with granite counter-tops, maple cabinets as well as vaulted ceilings, cherry built-ins and a large pool outside.
The listing is held by Aaron Leider of Keller Williams Realty.
