Forbes just released its annual list of the Celebrity 100, a ranking of the most powerful stars including film and television actors, TV personalities, models, athletes, authors, musicians and comedians, based on both fame and annual pre-tax earnings (from May 2011 to May 2012). Here's a round-up of where these moneyed stars spend their nights catching beauty sleep and dodging paparazzi. Realtor.com, Trulia.com and others helped Forbes unearth properties bought and sold in the past year as well as a few long-term abodes A-listers have clung to. There are even a few rentals, like this Calabasas estate called Chateau Suenos where pop star Britney Spears rented until last year following her infamous "meltdown."
