‘Million Dollar Listing’s’ Ryan Serhant lists his own home

Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing” star Ryan Serhant is taking on a new property listing: His own family’s NYC penthouse, which he’ll be renting out for $15,000 a month.

Serhant has lived in the 2,000-square-foot condominium in West Soho with his family since 2015. But he recently finished renovations on a Brooklyn townhouse he acquired about four years ago, and he plans to move in to create more space for his family.

Now, as he searches for the right tenant, he’s looking back on what made the place so special to begin with.

“It was my listing. I sold it to myself because I knew it was a great deal,” he told The Post. “People walking in knew they would need to make changes and found it daunting, but for me, it was the perfect apartment.”

“I did the math against comparables, and I knew I could do the work better than anybody else,” he said.

Serhant, 36, purchased the lofty, private condominium in 2014 with his now-wife Emilia Bechrakis, 35, when the place was dark and outdated.

“It was delivered with dark floors, brown leather cabinets with red interiors, fluorescent lights, black and brown tile bathrooms — it was very dark,” he said. “It was great when we finally had our home [after renovations]. We were super excited to move in.”

His household now includes their 2-year-old daughter, Zena, and Bechrakis’ mother, who helps take care of Zena.

“We love it a lot, which is why I’m not selling it. Because the area is only going to get better, so we want to keep it. But we’re happy to let someone borrow it,” he told The Post.

"I wanted high ceilings and a really big living and dining space,” he told the Post.

"I couldn’t find a three bedroom with a bonus space [the office] that has a lofty, downtown feel and doesn’t share a hallway," said Serhant.

With interior designer Robin Baron, they gut-renovated the interior and added a bathroom and closet space. They moved into their new apartment with light wood floors, a new kitchen and bathrooms, stone settings and luxurious finishes on Valentine’s Day 2015.

“We love it a lot, which is why I’m not selling it," said Serhant.

The home’s office space — which Serhant used as a playroom for his daughter — and its outdoor space make it an attractive property during the coronavirus pandemic, when many New Yorkers have resorted to living and working in their homes.

The home has two terraces and is located near Hudson River Park, which is a family favorite.

“There have been birds chirping on the terraces in the mornings these days,” he said. “The [main] terrace is massive, and it’s perfect for getting sun, reading, taking phone calls or working because it has the fire pit, greenery, huge views — it’s all about the views looking south.”

Disney hypes real-life lightsaber for #RevengeOfTheFifth

Disney hypes real-life lightsaber for #RevengeOfTheFifth

Laser swords are no longer just for movie characters. 

On Tuesday, May 4 — widely celebrated as “Star Wars” day — Disney announced that, for the first time, mere mortals can arm themselves with retractable, working lightsabers. 

“Light…darkness…a balance,” says “The Last Jedi” character Rey in a teaser video for the cinematic weapon’s earthling launch.

“Yes, that’s a new type of lightsaber Rey is holding in her hand, created by Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development,” Disney Parks wrote in an accompanying blog post.  

The trailer also promoted Disney’s new “all immersive” Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel, set to open for two-night stays in 2022, when the sabers will become available. Guests at the galactic resort will be the first to experience the real world sabers and will additionally be given the opportunity “to train in the ancient ways of the lightsaber” among other thematic offerings. 

“Watching that lightsaber activate right before your eyes will be just one of the countless ways that, from the moment you arrive to the moment you depart, you’ll be plunged into a Star Wars story where your decisions and actions — or even the casual conversations you may have — determine how your personal journey unfolds,” the post goes on.

The new, retractable spear is unsurprisingly not the first re-creation of the famed franchise’s most iconic weapon: YouTubers and the French have also previously made various attempts at emulating the device.

Fans have made it clear that, once they get their hands on the glowing swords, some ought to turn green: On the heels of “May the Fourth,” some “Star Wars” die-hards are also now promoting #RevengeOfTheFifth and “May the Sith” — additional “Star Wars” themed holidays meant to promote the series’ villains. 

“Happy #RevengeOfTheFifth to every darkside enthusiast,” tweeted one fan girl on Wednesday.

“Sometimes it’s good to be bad,” wrote another fandom account with the hashtag.

Kary and Eduardo tied the knot in 2009 in Careyes, Mexico.

Kary acknowledged that “starting over at 50 can be scary” but explained that separating was the “right thing” for themselves and their children.

“If you believe in the power of prayer, please pray for us as we walk through this uncharted territory,” she ended her note.

During the “RHOD” reunion, Kary broke the news to her co-stars, admitting that she was in “so much pain” while filming.

“This was a really tough season for me, and watching it back, I realized how much I hurt and how much I was struggling, you know, in my life. As I watched that, I realized how much in pain I was. My marriage was falling apart, and I didn’t wanna admit it,” Kary said, through tears.

“After the show finished, you know, me and Eduardo had to have a real heart-to-heart talk, and we decided that, you know, we needed to go our separate ways. And we just told our kids right before coming to the reunion.”

Infamous ‘stop being poor’ T-shirt is fake

Infamous 'stop being poor' T-shirt is fake

Paris Hilton is so misunderstood.

The hotel heiress has made a shocking revelation for fans on social media: Her infamous “STOP BEING POOR” tank top is a fake.

“So there’s this photo online of me — I’m sure you’ve seen it,” the once-and-forever It girl begins in a video posted on TikTok, now viewed more than 4.5 million times.

“I never wore that shirt,” she says in setting the record straight, pointing toward the background which features the famous image of Paris flaunting the “STOP BEING POOR” message across her torso. “This was completely Photoshopped. Everyone thinks it’s real, but that’s not the truth.”

Then, the real message flashes on the screen. “Stop being desperate,” she says with a snicker, reading the shirt she wore that night some 16 years ago.

“Don’t believe everything you read,” she warns at the end.

The notorious top has been tied to the 40-year-old party gal since 2013, according to the viral archive KnowYourMeme. Images of Paris with sister Nicky, 37, at a 2005 fashion show — for the now-defunct fashion label Chick by Nicky Hilton — were tweaked to diss the siblings as spoiled and were then shared widely on Tumblr.

Though the images were reportedly debunked just a few months later, the fakes remain closely associated with Paris, who is reportedly worth an estimated $300 million.

Meanwhile, the blushing bride-to-be is likely busily planning her nuptials with 40-year-old venture capitalist Carter Reum, who proposed to the “Stars Are Blind” singer with a massive diamond and sapphire engagement ring that could be worth over $2 million, according to jewelry experts.
