Here’s proof that celebrities have real estate woes, just like the rest of us.
The family home of reality TV star Kristin Cavallari has recently been foreclosed on, according to public records obtained by the Orange County Register. The 7,100-square-foot residence was sold at public auction to OneWest Bank for $6.1 million — quite a price reduction from the $13.9 million it was listed for back in 2009.

Cavallari made her TV debut on Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County in 2004. Riding on the heels of the show’s success she joined MTV’s spinoff series The Hills in 2009 where she later look over the leading lady role once belonging to Lauren Conrad. Following the final season of the show, Cavallari was a contestant on the 13th season of Dancing with the Stars. The former reality TV star has since moved on, getting engaged to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler last November; she is now pregnant with her first child.
Nestled on 3.17 acres on a hillside, the home features panoramic coastal views from virtually every room. The Laguna Beach home could be mistaken for a resort as it has 7,100-square feet of interior living space flowing easily to the outdoor grounds, which feature a wet and dry sauna, stone terraces, and a salt water infinity edge pool. Cavallari’s family pad also has 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a yoga studio and media room. If that wasn’t enough, the home’s location in Three Arch Bay provides access to the community’s club house and private beach cove.
The home also had a moment of television airtime. Cavallari showed the residence off on season five, episode 14 of The Hills called “Old Habits Die Hard.”
