>>> we are back now at 8:38. and we'll take a peek inside some of the celebrity homes on the market. barbara, good morning to you.

>> good morning.

>> we start with eddie murphy 's home in northern california .

>> this is northern california . when you get the first view of the house , you think a satellite just dropped that house right there. some amazing front entrance, is it not? it's got a tremendous price on it. all the furnishings are included in the price. it's $12 million. for that price i say why not, everything should be included, maybe even a little bit more. if it gets that price, it will be the highest price by far of anything in the sacramento area. 10 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms. look at that room, all round. my god, who wouldn't want to sleep in that bedroom. the views are from every single window. that's a small little gym to work out. it also has four wet bars, an arcade, 12-see the screening room . it's 12,600 feet and that doesn't include the guest house . that's the house for you. you're buying it today.

>> let's go. not too slouchy at all. a little closer to home, we have spike lee 's, upper east side .

>> this is a most unusual house . it's been occupied by celebrities, almost from the get-go. it was first stable for the vanderbilts, they were famous. lee brought it from jasper lee for $16 million. it's an unusual house . it's divided by a courtyard with a fountain in the middle, which you'll see in a moment. it's such an amenity in new york city . tiny little dining area, seats six. who doesn't want that? now there are 12 courtyards for sale in new york city but they're all belonging to churches and schools. that's a unique house and people are going to pay a lot for that.

>> and it's got some history, too.

>> back out west, khloe kardashian and lamar odom breaking up, and the house is for sale.

>> thank god for divorces, it puts the houses on the market. this is a dramatic two-story foyer. there's the foyer with the hand forged stairwell. it's some kind of special finish, it includes tumble stones, custom built-in, formal living dining area, theater, seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a billiard room with an exotic safari theme. kind of like a guy's room. they're hoping to make a 35% profit. will they do it? i think so. they haven't been particularly greedy and it's in mint condition .

>> let's do chris brown 's home, hollywood hills . kind of classic.

>> this is an inexpensive home by modern standards. you have to enter by an elevator. he painted the outside of the house with his very own artwork, otherwise called graffiti work. then he painted over the outside with green paint. maybe the neighbors complained. the striking interior has all the soaring ceilings, walls of glass. outside it's another -- well, there, let's not forget the inside extra things like that great work room but there's the outside. this is the charmer of the house . it has a water fountain , a pool, panoramic views from all the hollywood hills . it's delicious, it's going to sell quickly. it's properly priced.

>> this looks like a party house .

>> i think i've got your interest. that's the one for you, under $2 million.

>> barbara, thank you very much.
