"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Yolanda Foster and her Grammy Award-winning music producer husband David Foster have listed their palatial Malibu home for $27.5 million.

The custom-built 11,622 square foot mansion described as "reminiscent of a romantic European villa," has six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, as well as an office, library, two spa bathrooms, a screening room and a recording studio. The five-acre property also features an infinity pool and orchards of citrus and avocado trees.

The professional chef's kitchen includes a custom floor-to-ceiling glass refrigerator so popular due to the Bravo reality series that it has it's own Twitter account.

The 50-year-old reality star explains that she and her 64-year-old husband decided to sell the home because of her battle with Lyme disease. "This is our dream home, but due to my battle with Lyme disease for the past two years I just don't have the strength to run this almost 5-acre property anymore and should really focus on my recovery with as little stress as possible," she told Us magazine. "My daughter Gigi moved to New York last July and my Bella will move this July, so it will be just the two of us with my 14-year-old son, Anwar."

ellen degeneres purchased brody house 800x519

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi recently purchased what is arguably the "best house in Los Angeles" -- the recently revamped Brody house in Holmby Hills, CA.

The multi-winged A. Quincy Jones designed house, which sits next door to the Playboy Mansion, was commissioned in 1949 by philanthropists and art collectors Sidney and Frances Brody. With an interior designed by Billy Haines and the 2.3 acre grounds by landscape arhitect Garrett Eckbo, Brody House is widely considered one of the best estates in Los Angeles.

The 13,511 square foot, 6 bedroom, 9.5 bathroom home, includes a pool and pool house, gym, spa and tennis court. The previous owner, whose identity has not been disclosed, had the home updated by designer Stephen Stone.

Ellen and Portia, known for their high-end house flipping, also sold their Beverly Hills home at the time of the purchase. They still own a John Sladino-designed villa in Montecito, CA, which they purchased in May, 2013, for $26.5 million.
