I've been counting down the days until "Liberace: Behind The Candelabra" premieres on HBO (Sunday, May 26, at 9 PM if you missed the promos). In the meantime, I've been on rhinestone overload, looking up videos of the patron saint of all things glitzy. My favorite find, so far, has to be this tour of Liberace's home in Palm Springs, California. The bold wallpaper! The chandeliers! The toilet made to look like a throne! It's just too fabulous for words.

The sad thing is that this home has been modernized -- there's nary a sequin in sight. Thankfully, this video exists to remind us what the property was like in its glory days. Check it out, above.

For more fabulousness, check out these gorgeous celebrity-home pools.

    Moore shared <a href="http://www.architecturaldigest.com/celebrity-homes/2008/hollywood-pools-slideshow?mbid=synd_huffpohome#/slide=1" target="_blank">this pool </a>with her ex, Ashton Kutcher. And the design matches the home's 1950s style perfectly.

    Her <a href="http://www.architecturaldigest.com/celebrity-homes/2008/hollywood-pools-slideshow?mbid=synd_huffpohome#/slide=5" target="_blank">cabana</a> is anything dull. Keaton told Architectural Digest that her children love the space the most -- and we don't blame them.

  • Frank Sinatra

    Sinatra had an <a href="http://www.architecturaldigest.com/celebrity-homes/2008/hollywood-pools-slideshow?mbid=synd_huffpohome#/slide=8" target="_blank">oval swimming pool</a> that led to his private golf course. His daughter Nancy told Architectural Digest about an unusual experience that occurred there. “One clown drove a golf cart right into the pool.”

    The luxe <a href="http://www.architecturaldigest.com/celebrity-homes/2008/hollywood-pools-slideshow?mbid=synd_huffpohome#/slide=9" target="_blank">infinity pool</a> seems just right for the over-the-top diva.
