The results of Zillow’s annual celebrity neighbor survey are in, and America’s (literal) girl next door is actress Sandra Bullock. More than one quarter of those surveyed said they’d most like to have the Academy Award-winning single mom as their neighbor. The next most-popular prospective neighbor, Sarah Palin, trailed with 10 percent of the vote. Lady Gaga, who has been spotted apartment hunting in New York City lately, and newlyweds Katy Perry and Russell Brand, who just dropped $2.7 million on an apartment in Tribeca, took 3 percent and 2 percent of the vote, respectively. The cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” was picked by 26 percent of those surveyed as the least desirable neighborhood addition of 2010, even beating out drunk-driving Mel Gibson and Plaza Hotel room-destroyer Charlie Sheen. Another 3 percent of voters believed Coconut Grove, Fla.’s latest celebrity resident, LeBron James, would be the worst neighbor, but Zillow didn’t note whether those voters were from Cleveland. TRD
