Here are my weekly picks:

I wonder if actor Jeremy Piven’s new $7 million U.S. Hollywood Hills home is be big enough to house a party with the boys from HBO’s Entourage.

Speaking of the hills, it’s a good thing Piven didn’t move to West Hollywood where social media star, Jake Paul, has turned his once quiet, upscale neighbourhood into a complete circus.

To most, it’s just another modest detached home in Toronto. To fans of Canada’s comedy hit, SCTV, this home is where famed actors John Candy, Eugene Levy and Rick Moranis discovered their funny bone!
