His last dance in Venice
Joey McIntyre is no longer one of the new kids on the block in Venice. He has sold his house there for close to $2.9 million.
McIntyre, who was in the New Kids all-boy band from 1986 to 1994, and his wife, Barrett, have purchased a home in Hancock Park for nearly $4.7 million.

McIntyre, the youngest of nine children, and his wife are expecting their first child and wanted a larger home.
Their new home has four bedrooms and six bathrooms in 4,700 square feet.
The Country English-style house was built in 1925 and was redesigned by architect Paul Williams and refitted by designer Brian Little.
All of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. The home also has a media room, a detached guesthouse, a pool, spa, croquet lawn and garden.
The McIntyres sold their Venice four-bedroom, four-bathroom home, which has 3,200 square feet. The house, built in 2002, has a loft that is a media room, a “dining garden” on the edge of a canal, an open kitchen, a master bedroom suite with a fireplace, an outdoor dining terrace and a viewing deck with a fireplace.
The home was purchased by producer-director David Zucker and his wife, Danielle. He directed two of the entries in the “Scary Movie” franchise, the feature film “Airplane!” and two of the “Naked Gun” pictures.
Joey McIntyre, 34, recently released a CD of classic tunes called “Talk to Me” and in March went on a 38-city “Dancing With the Stars” tour. He was a finalist in the TV show during its first season. In 2004, he appeared on Broadway in “Wicked.”
Tim Enright of the Enright Co. had the listing on the Venice house and handled both sides of the Hancock Park deal while Jeff Kohl of Prudential California Realty represented the buyers of the Venice house, real estate sources said.
From the ‘70s to the big time
Neither rolling stones nor cast members of TV’s “That ‘70s Show” are gathering any moss.
Wilmer Valderrama, who played Fez -- the exchange student -- on the Fox sitcom, which ran from 1998 to 2006, has put his Tarzana compound on the market at slightly less than $2.3 million.
He listed the gated Tarzana property because he purchased “a big estate down the street” some time ago and has moved there, said Erica Reams, who has the listing at Sunset Park Realtors, Santa Monica.
The five-bedroom Tarzana home on half an acre has a tennis court, pool, pool house, spa and gym.
After the Fox sitcom ended its run, Valderrama became host of the MTV show “Yo Momma,” a competition for comics that he created.
Perfect pad for keeping it mellow
Danny Masterson, who played resident pothead Steven Hyde in “That ‘70s Show,” and actress Bijou Phillips (“Hostel: Part II”) have purchased a Hollywood Hills home for a little less than $3 million.
The Mediterranean-style home, built in 1923, has five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 4,300 square feet. The home is on a promontory and has a pool, spa, mediation garden, paddle tennis court and guesthouse.
The 31-year-old Masterson and Phillips are in the cast of the upcoming film “The Bridge to Nowhere,” Blair Underwood’s feature-film directorial debut. Ving Rhames stars.
Brock Harris of Brock Real Estate, Silverlake, represented the buyers.
Two’s company, back at the ranch
Jenilee Harrison, who played Jamie Ewing on “Dallas” and Cindy Snow on “Three’s Company,” and her chiropractor husband, Bruce Oppenheim, have sold their Sherman Oaks property for $1.1 million.
Harrison, who also had a two-year stint as a Los Angeles Rams cheerleader, and her husband live on their Agoura Hills ranch and don’t use the four-bedroom, three-bathroom Sherman Oaks house now that they are empty-nesters.
The 2,300-square-foot house was remodeled in 2003.
Dawn Young of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills East, represented the buyers, and Robert “Lee” Walters of Leland Properties, Studio City, had the listing.
Palm Springs spot not exactly hidden
Kevin Williamson, who wrote the screenplays for the “Scream” series of films and the TV series “Dawson’s Creek,” has purchased a late-'40s, modern-style house in Palm Springs for $1.5 million.
The house has five bedrooms and 6 1/2 bathrooms in 4,800 square feet.
Williamson, 42, also wrote and produced the summer series “Hidden Palms,” which was set in Palm Springs. The series made its debut May 30 on the CW.
Andy Linsky, Kelli Ross and Sven Vennen of Windermere Real Estate, Palm Springs, represented both sides.
Desert house now his Hoppy home
And now a follow-up to the “Hoppy House” saga....
The Palm Desert home of actor William Boyd, who played Hopalong Cassidy, was purchased at an auction June 2 for $467,500.
New owner Stan Fedderly, an Orange County direct-mail executive, said, “I’m just a lucky guy. I didn’t think I was going to get the house, but I did.”
He and his wife, Lynn, plan to retire to the home, where the western actor and wife Grace lived from 1955 to 1971.
Boyd died at the age of 77 in 1972.
The house was purchased two years ago by a Rancho Mirage contractor, who refurbished it to sell.
Some of the items belonging to Hoppy were auctioned at the same time, with proceeds going to charities.
