LAGUNA BEACH, CALIF.—The family of reality star Kristin Cavallari—who gained fame on MTV's wildly popular Laguna Beach and The Hills—has lost their ridiculously opulent Laguna mansion to foreclosure. The 7,100-square-foot ocean-view spread was listed for $13.9M back in 2009 but never sold, eventually leading to a public auction. Meanwhile, Cavallari has moved on, and in, with fiance Jay Cutler, the NFL quarterback. [Zillow Blog]
