She has ideas for the sale party
Tawny Kitaen, who costarred with Tom Hanks in "Bachelor Party," has listed her Newport Beach home at $3.45 million.
The house, with 4,371 square feet, has five bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. It is in a guard-gated community and has hand-hewn hardwood and stone floors.
There are high ceilings, crown moldings and French doors that open to the yard. The cook's kitchen has a center island, a breakfast area, granite counters and top-of-the-line appliances. The two-story home was built in 1983.
Kitaen, 47, played Hanks' bride-to-be in the 1984 "Bachelor Party" movie. She has worked steadily on TV and in the movies since then, getting much ink for a Whitesnake video she made in which she rolls around the hood of a Jaguar doing splits. She also had a much-publicized divorce from Major League Baseball pitcher Chuck Finley.
Robert Hurwitz of Hurwitz James Co. has the listing.
