Carmen Electra House Hunts In BH

Carmen Electra is on the move.

And she’s got pricey properties on the brain… to the tune of $3 to $4 million bucks.

The former Baywatch star is on the hunt for a new home with a little help from Million Dollar Listing L.A.‘s real estate reality stars the Altman brothers, a source close to the actress tells Celebuzz.

“She’s been at her old place for a long time and she wants something new and different,” added the source.

The 41-year-old stunner currently calls Beverly Hills home and with that priceless view (above) we don’t quite understand why she’d pack up… but it seems three bedrooms with a pool that she bought in 2002 for just over $1.3 million is just not cutting it anymore.

She wants to keep the 90210 zip code, only she’s got more cash to splash. And bigger is better.

“She’d like to rent out her home now and she’s looked at a couple homes so far. One she liked but she didn’t take it,” added the source.

So Simon Cowell‘s ex still on the property prowl.

“She wants to stay in the Benedict Canyon area. She’s looking for something modern in the $3 to $4 million range.

“And she wants more closet space.” (Of course!)

We’re pretty sure for that kind of dough she’ll find plenty of room for her Louboutins.

“She’s updating her life,” said the source.

Simon Cowell has no qualms about becoming a first-time father.

The X Factor judge, 53, addressed his situation for the first time on Tuesday, telling the BBC, “I’m proud to be a dad.”

Cowell – fathering a child with Lauren Silverman, who wasn’t separated at the time from now-estranged husband Andrew Silverman – went on to say, “It’s something I hadn’t thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it.”

Keeping his distance from the mother of his unborn child until her divorce drama calms down, Cowell calls Lauren “a very special girl.”

Adds Cowell, “Things are changing in my life right now for the better.”

His positive comments follow an interview in 2009, when he said, “God, no, I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts. You’ve got to be up at a certain time. Got to listen when all you want to do is sit in a corner thinking.”

But he had a change of heart last year, explaining, “I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them. The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to bringing up kids and I’ve always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I’ve probably missed the opportunity.”

According to recent celebrity news, CHERYL COLE has admitted to cursing out SIMON COWELL after she was fired from the USA edition of “X Factor”…

The gorgeous Brit is finally opening up about her intense reaction to how she was fired from her position as a judge on “X Factor” last year.

Cheryl was initially a judge on the British edition of “X Factor, but was tapped to join Simon as he launched the show in America. However, just one month after she was announced as an official member of the judge’s panel, the singer was abruptly fired from the show and replaced by Nicole Scherzinger.

In her new book, “Cheryl: My Story”, the singer revealed that what made her really angry about the firing was the fact that Simon Cowell didn’t have the guts to tell her himself-the news was delivered by Richard Holloway, executive producer of the show.

Cheryl wrote (as excerpted from The Sun):

“I can’t get over the fact that ‘big man’ Simon, the same guy that told me I had the job and told me ‘don’t wear that hair’ couldn’t tell me I didn’t have the job! The coward didn’t even have the guts to phone or send a message warning me what was coming.”

She continued:

“I was furious with Simon for letting it happen like this. I believed we had a good friendship and I couldn’t understand why he just hadn’t been straight with me… I wrote the longest text ever. I apologise about the bad language, but this is how he made me feel.”

The text, which was full of curse words, went like this:

“F*** you. F*** Britain’s Got Talent. F*** the orange and purple outfit. F*** big hair. F*** the UK X Factor. F*** you all. I hate you. I understand you’re a businessman, and what I’ve learned from this is that business means more to you than friendship. I’m sad it’s got like this and I wish you the best of luck, but count me out.”

Simon tried to talk to her and apologize, but by then Cheryl had decided to cut off all communication with him.

Many months later, when they finally had the chance to talk again, Cheryl revealed what Simon first said to her:

“Taking you off [“X Factor”] was the worst mistake I ever made and if I could have my time back, I wouldn’t do it again… I’m sorry.”

The two eventually patched things up after that, of course.

What do you think of Cheryl‘s reaction to getting fired?

Is a reunion in store for Sharon Osbourne & Simon Cowell’s on X Factor?

Although it would seem unlikely, the reality star revealed her desire to reunite with Cowell.

Here’s what she said:

“I would love to come back to X Factor. I want to come back to England and I want to come back to X Factor. I’m not happy to be back, I am ecstatic to be back.”

We’re surprised that Sharon would want to return or that Simon would be interested – especially considering that not too long ago Sharon had insulted Simon’s manhood.

Here’s what Sharon said:

“Simon and I are still in touch,” she said. “He reached out to me very recently regarding Jack and he was so lovely and so supportive. When the s**t hits the fan, Simon is always there for you. We bicker like brother and sister but ultimately we have got each other’s backs. I would love to work with Simon again just to p*ss him off.”

There you have it, Simon!

The ball is now officially in your court!
