Arnold sells house
LOS ANGELES -- Tom Arnold, who co-stars with Steven Seagal in the movie "Exit Wounds," has put his Beverly Hills-area home on the market at just under $3.4 million.
Arnold, who had lived in the home with his ex-wife, hairstylist Julie Champnella, wants to move on with his life and relocate closer to the city. He has been looking to buy in Hancock Park.
His Beverly Hills-area home is in a gated community off Mulholland Drive. It has five bedrooms in 6,800 square feet and includes a master suite with a sitting room and two walk-in closets. Built in 1990, the home also has a gym, wine cellar and lagoon-style pool.
