Home, wrote novelist Harriet Beecher Stowe, “is life’s undress rehearsal.” Ring the bell and come on in to this special issue, where some of Hollywood’s proud householders have thrown open their doors, guiding us through bedrooms, kitchens and even bathrooms that show their true colors. Some digs, of course, mirror the stars’ public images: Jane Seymour delights in her Malibu mansion and Rosie O’Donnell obsesses over her collection of McDonald’s Happy Meal figures. But be prepared for surprises at every turn of the hall-way. Melrose Place hunk David Charvet takes us to a calming “green room” that he uses to “stay grounded,” and Howard Stern’s sidekick Robin Quivers stuns colleagues with her Louis XVI-style apartment. Savor the recipes and the decorating tips on the following pages. Actress Gail O’Grady (left) speaks for many stars when she says, “My hobby is my home.”
