Digs of the Rich & Famous: Matthews, Welch, J-Lo

'Hardball' host hits Nantucket says It reported that Chris Matthews and his TV anchor wife, Kathleen, just bought a place for $4.35 million on the island.

The former boss of GE (parent company of MSNBC, where Hairball, er, Hardball appears) is trying again to unload his Connecticut digs. Wall Street Journal reports he has raised the asking price on his Fairfield manse to $10.2 million, "even though the house went unsold for three months at $8.75 million."

Finally, is J-Lo Buying High?

Superstar couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony may be finalizing their penthouse purchase at the ICON building in Miami--or maybe they aren't.

A marketing exec for developers of the wave-shaped tower in South Beach is quoted by as saying:

"There hasn't, to our knowledge, been an actual sale yet,' said Sara Kallus, for The Related Group of Florida. "Evidently, they've come to look at it. I don't know where the rumor started."

With its Philippe Starck-designed interiors, ICON has "rich & famous" written all over it. The building officially opened in December 2004, and its 289 residences have all sold, Kallus said.

Lopez and Anthony, who married in June, were said to be paying $9.9 million for the spread, which includes a private pool and 6,000 square feet of balcony.
