“American Idol” stars were churning out the real estate hits this week.

Rocker Adam Lambert, a runner-up in season eight, listed his Sunset Strip home with an asking price of $3.9 million. The 3,799-square-foot estate has three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a master suit that has two balconies. It also has a 10-person spa with a waterfall and an outdoor living room under a covered loggia. Lambert, who just wrapped up a worldwide tour with rock band Queen, bought the contemporary-style estate in 2014 for $2.9 million. Brad Downs of Rodeo Realty has the listing. 

Katherine McPhee, a runner-up on the fifth season of “American Idol,” found herself in the judge’s chair looking at a Studio City home. Apparently, it left an impression. The singer and actress paid $2 million for the 3,527-square-foot property, after listing her Toluca Lake home last month for $1.55 million. The estate has four bedrooms and four bathrooms with a sunroom, outdoor living room and private courtyard. Edward Fitz of The Agency had the listing. Doug Rago of eXp Realty of California represented McPhee.

Meanwhile, NBA star Chris Paul is trying to give his Bel Air mansion the boot. Paul cut the price of his home by more than $2 million. It now asks $9.25 million. The former Los Angeles Clippers point guard, who now plays for the Houston Rockets, originally listed the estate for $11.5 million last year. The two-story, Mediterranean-style is 12,184 square feet and has eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. There’s a 500-bottle wine cellar, a 12-seat home theatre, and, of course, a gym. Ikem Chukumerije of Westside Premier Estates has the listing.

The estate of the late comedian Don Rickles sold his Malibu home for $6.5 million to Donato Errico, co-founder of luxury fitness chain Equinox. The 3,421-square-foot property has four bedrooms and five bathrooms with “deeded rights to Little Dume Beach,” according to listing details. Rickles, who gained fame on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” purchased the traditional-style property in 2004 for $3.3 million. Christopher Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker Residential represented the buyer and seller.

Clear the runway: model and designer Erin Wasson has sold her Venice home for $3.15 million, after first listing it in May 2016. The 3,004-square-foot pad has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. There’s also two apartment-type units above the garage that each have their own bedroom and bathroom. Wasson scooped up the home from singer Sophie B. Hawkins in 2013 for $2.73 million. Sally Forster Jones of John Aaroe Group had the listing. Tiffany Rochelle of Halton Pardee and Partners represented the buyer.
