Up in Bel Air, Treats! magazine took over a mansion so big it looked like a museum. I later found out that the spread is worth $35.5 million, and that is not counting the valuables socializing inside on Friday night including Leonardo DiCaprio, Michelle Rodriguez, Scott Eastwood, and the cover girl of Issue 8, Lydia Hearst, there with boyfriend Chris Hardwick.
