Temperatures may be dropping in Los Angeles, but home prices (and drama) in the residential world of real estate have yet to cool off.

Topping the charts this week was a Malibu estate — formerly owned by “Tonight Show” host Johnny Carson — which listed for $81.5 million. Film producer Sidney Kimmel and his wife, Caroline, listed the 7,000-square-foot pad on Wildlife Road in Malibu. The Ed Niles-designed home has two bedrooms, a gym, koi pond and tennis court featuring a bench from celeb-loved Wimbledon. Comedy legend Carson lived in the oceanfront estate for over two decades. Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker and Linda May of Hilton & Hyland have the listing.

Meanwhile, Beverly Hills residents are heated at the mere thought that mansion-trasher Justin Bieber could rent in their gilded city. Homeowners in the 90210 ZIP code collectively agreed to close their doors to the “Sorry” singer (apparently questioning how sorry he really is), despite the fact that he is reportedly offering rates as high as $100,000 a month. Fans should flock to Beverly Hills hotels, where he’s said to have established a “semi-permanent” residence.

In the Hollywood Hills West, Katy Perry is giving home selling another shot. The “California Gurl” listed the larger of her two adjacent homes Mulholland Drive atop Runyon Canyon for $9.45 million. She unsuccessfully tried selling both of the homes for $15 million this summer. Regardless, the for-sale 2.33-acre estate is made up of four structures, including a two-story guest house and security guard post. Ernie Carswell of Teles Properties (the brokerage which was snatched up by Douglas Elliman) has the listing.

“Bridget Jones” mastermind Helen Fielding listed her home on Rising Glen Road above the Sunset Strip for $3.5 million. The 2,655-square-foot property has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a private office, two-car garage and swimming pool. The novelist-turned-screenwriter purchased the home for $1.4 million in 2000, records show. Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland has the listing.

Following a break-up from her baby daddy and longtime boyfriend, actress Rachel Bilson snagged a contemporary home on Linda Ridge Road above the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for $3.25 million. The 3,700-square-foot retro pad has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a built-in stereo system and geometrically-obscure swimming pool. Dubbed “Ralphs House,” the home was actually built for Walter W. Ralphs Jr., heir of the Ralphs grocery store chain, in 1950. Michael Bell of Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing.
