The “Friends” gang might have painted the walls a cheery yellow and brought in lots of candy-colored furniture. The “Gossip Girl” brats would have made fun of anyone poor enough to live there, and Carrie probably would have been too horrified to allow her “Sex and the City” Manolos to touch the scratched floors. But the unrenovated Brooklyn brownstone where TV's modern-day Sherlock Holmes rests his head and solves some of the Big Apple's twistiest crimes hits some amusing -- and timely -- decorating notes.
If it were not for her brother's money, Stephanie Bouck's husband might never have been indicted for her 1987 murder. But just as O. J. Simpson's fortune is financing his high-powered defense, so builder Jack Shine's money helped bring about the prosecution of Guy Dean Bouck, a 45-year-old Vietnam veteran with a well-documented, 20-year history of hurting women and children.

Totaled together, the first two "Chronicles of Narnia" films grossed nearly $1.2 billion around the world, making it one of the most successful box-office franchises in recent years. So why would Disney, which co-financed and co-produced the films with Phil Anschutz's Walden Media, walk away from such a valuable property? The back story is messy, involving an ugly dispute between Disney and Anschutz, a true battle of the titans.

THE BOY IS 4 YEARS OLD. WEARING A BLUE SWEAT SHIRT, BAGGY jeans and a look of solitary awe, he wanders through the Sunday afternoon tumult of the La Mesa State Penitentiary, a raucous Tijuana dreamscape. The boy passes taco stands in the central plaza, a makeshift video arcade and a general store with a hand-painted 7-Eleven sign. He gets a pat on the head from one of the scruffy tattooed men crouched in a predatory daze around the basketball court.

A man has a casual affair with a woman and then dumps her. The woman, now with child, longs for his return but is coldly rebuffed. Humiliated and left with nothing to live for, she kills herself with a sharp blade to the throat. The story of Puccini's "Madame Butterfly" is a tragedy written in florid, grandiose letters.

It's a far cry from Springfield, but comedic actor and "The Simpsons" voice artist Hank Azaria recently purchased a home in Bel-Air for $10 million. The gated traditional has seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms in about 9,000 square feet of living space, according to the Multiple Listing Service. It sits on nearly three-quarters of an acre. Built in 1932, the two-story view home includes four fireplaces, a dance studio, an art studio, a den and a library.
