(NEW YORK) First things first: the starlets, both alive and deceased. Thanks to Madonna, the once-sleepy Water Mill will become a paparazzi hotbed. The songstress has been renting an 8,500-square-foot home (with seven bedrooms!) on a secluded three-acre lot on Blank Lane since January. (Let’s not forget she also owns a $5 million Bridgehampton horse farm, purchased from Kelly Klein in 2009). And speaking of pop starlets and Water Mill, Jennifer Lopez is settling into her new $18 million abode on Mecox Bay. Fingers crossed for a Casper Smart sighting! And attention, renters-—if you’re angling to buy, check out the two-acre compound in Sagaponack once belonging to Henry O. Golightly, who reportedly inspired Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s heroine. It’s on the market for a mere!
