A Mean Girls is selling his Palm Springs manor
Mean Girls actor Jonathan Bennett is putting his Palm Springs getaway up for sale. Bennett and his husband, Jaymes Vaughan, have been too busy with TV projects and their LGBTQ+ cruise company, OutBound, to take full advantage of the three-bedroom, two-bath rancher, TMZ reported.
Set on a 11,325-square-foot lot, the house, nicknamed “Mai Tai Manor,” was completed in 1977. Both colorful and playful, with a distinct ’70s party vibe, its appeared on MTV’s Real Friends of WeHo and Design Network’s Celebrity Homes Unlocked.
Bennett and Vaughan bought the property in 2020 for $625,000. After some major work—including modernizing the HVAC system and renovating the pool and patio—they’ve listed it with Joe Chung of Compass for $1.15 million.
The home is being sold furnished, complete with Breda Murphy bunk beds and pieces by Kardie.
Lego Movie producer Dan Lin lists midcentury A-frame in Honolulu
Hollywood producer Dan Lin, whose credits include It, The Lego Movie, and Disney’s live-action Aladdin, has listed his four-bedroom A-frame in Honolulu. Situated at the base of Diamond Head, 4335 Kaikoo Place is modeled after a Samoan longhouse and reflects the Indigenous influences that shaped the work of architect George Pete Wimberly, who completed the thatched-roof house in 1956.
Offering about 2,000 square feet of interior space, it’s infused with natural elements like lava rock, coral, and bamboo. Wimberly set the tone for resort design in the Pacific, with notable works including the Waikikian, Kauai’s Coco Palms Resort, and Don the Beachcomber restaurant.
Lin and his interior designer wife, Sophia, restored much of the original design but overhauled the kitchen and primary bath. Among the additions? A six-person Denali 680 Sundance hot tub, as well as an updated large adobo wood deck that offers spectacular views of the sunset behind Diamond Head.
