- — Now that the awards for the Oscars, Grammys and Golden Globes have been handed out, it's time to move on to the next celebrity prize: The mirrored ball trophy for the winner of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."
The DWTS contestants have just been announced for the 14th season, which begins March 19. Ranging from actor Jaleel White, best known as Urkel on "Family Matters," to soul singer Gladys Knight and Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver, this seasons' contestants undoubtedly have been busy busting their best moves for their debut.
A few of the contestants have also been busy prepping their homes for the real estate market. DWTS contestants Gavin DeGraw and Melissa Gilbert have homes currently listed and host Brooke Burke recently removed her home off the active market.
Singer/songwriter DeGraw first gained popularity when his song “I Don’t Want To Be” was used as the theme song for TV’s drama “One Tree Hill” and his following album release “Chariot” was certified platinum.
His home is not typical celebrity real estate. Although the singer/songwriter’s home is listed on the Hollywood real estate market, it’s the other Hollywood — the city located in sunny Florida, not sunny SoCal — where DeGraw’s home exists.
Listed for $365,000, DeGraw’s Hollywood home was built in 1958 in a classic Spanish bungalow style. The 3-bed, 2-bath home features 1,700 square feet of living space on a 0.14-acre lot a short distance from the downtown Hollywood and lakefront beaches. The home takes advantage of Florida’s light and breezes with large windows and outdoor entertaining areas.
The home owned by Melissa Gilbert, famous for her stint as Laura Ingalls on “Little House on the Prairie,” and Bruce Boxleitner, best known for his role on TV series “Babylon 5," was on the Tarzana real estate market already when the couple announced their separation after 16 years of marriage.
