For celebrities, you’d think real estate would be nothing but a breeze. From decorating and designing their massive estates to renovating and expanding their compounds, it’s hard to envision difficult times for celebs and their real estate.

Although it may not be the first thing that comes to mind, stars stuck in real estate struggles definitely do exist. A handful have suffered what millions of American’s are battling across the U.S.: foreclosure. In recent years, celebs such as Toni Braxton, Nicolas Cage, Latoya Jackson and most recently Chris Tucker, have all gone through a foreclosure crisis and have lost millions.

For some rich and famous looking to either escape a foreclosure crisis, seek a change of scenery, or just rotate their property lineup, selling a million dollar home in this economy has proved to be quite the challenge. We have identified a list of 10 stars whose homes have been desperate for a new owner- some for over a year or more. Anyone interested in rescuing these infamous estates? See below for a real estate round up of celebs who just couldn’t sell in 2011.
