What can we say about the Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills, except that it might be the most important neighborhood in California for anyone who loves mid-century modern architecture. We wouldn’t think of missing an open house or estate sale in Trousdale, just so we can drool over the house close up. According to the RealEstalker, Ellen DeGeneres has finally bought a house we really envy. She paid over 17 million for an 8500 sq ft 4 bed, 6 bath, Hal Levitt masterpiece built in 1958. (Jennifer Aniston’s last house was also a Hal Levitt design.) Famed decorator Kelly Wearstler redid the interior to the max before selling to Ellen at a hefty profit.

    Gorgeous home. How many times has Ellen and Portia moved since they have been together? It just seems like it has been several times.

    Did anybody else read the rumor about John Travolta and Jeff Conaway? (per the National Enquirer).


    Below is from the P. Hilton website.

    “Jeff Conaway used to be best buds with his Grease co-star, but the deceased actor’s longtime girlfriend Vicki Lizzi (pictured above) spilled that their friendship abruptly ended after he awoke to discover Travolta performing oral sex on him!”

    “Vicki says she discovered the incident while reading a note Conaway left after a failed suicide attempt in 2006.”

    “Unlike the tabloid reporting the news, Marty Singer doesn’t buy the story. Instead he argues that this is just another addition to a long line of fabrications that Lizzi sold.” He explains:

    “Vicki Lizzi, the late Jeff Conaway’s estranged girlfriend, has been a regular paid source for the [Enquirer and its sister publications]…yet this is the very first time we are hearing this new outlandish story that is supposedly based on a six-year-old notarized suicide note. Vikki Lizzi sold more stories than we can count to [Enquirer parent company] AMI publications both before and after Jeff Conaway died.”

    “Whether Mz. Lizzi is telling the truth or not, she’s talking to other tabloids too. In fact, she told Star magazine that Travolta’s marriage to Kelly Preston is a sham.” explaining:

    “Jeff told me that John and Kelly’s marriage was an arrangement. Jeff said that Kelly knows that John is gay, and that’s why she’s OK with it.”

    There can be no sight as scary as a naked and aroused Ellen, resplendent w/ strap on, leading Portia to the bedroom!

    Well, Orpah leading Gayle to the bedroom would be pretty close!

    Well, Hillary leading her Paki assistant to the bedroom would also be close!

    Well, “Enquiring minds wanna know.” She seems a couple beer bottles short a case. Perhaps the story may be true but I’m betting, she was telling these fables to feed her own drug habit. Last I seen of her was on Dr. Drew & she was making me drunk just watching. I personally don’t care what people do behind closed doors, don’t wanna know cuz I don’t wanna be an accessory after the fact. Whatever Lizzie Borden says, needs to be taken with a grain of salt & perhaps a bottle of JD. As for Ellen’s house, nice digs.

    Call me old-fashioned.

    It’s so icky to hear Portia diRossi introduced as ellen’s wife. (this morning on Rachael Ray, Portia was RR’s guest and this is how she was introduced).

    yeeww, gross. I’m old-fashioned and believe in the Bible.

    So, they should enjoy their mansion now while on this earth, for there are no mansions in the devil’s enternal domain.

    I think the house is absolutely lovely and just oozes style! 🙂

    PS: I guess everyone knows that Ryan Seacrest purchased ellen and portia’s previous mansion for $49 million. Julianne Hough just moved in, so I guess she never was a devout Mormon, otherwise she would have been banned from this false cult, which bans fornication in their rule book. Julianne now looks hardened and tough; two or so years ago she proclaimed she would remain a virgin until marriage (lol). I guess the multi-millionaire 18-years older Ryan changed her mind.

    Just because Julianne moved in with RS doesn’t mean she is no longer a virgin…

    The house is gorgeous, and tastefully decorated.

    i know it’s her money blah blah but wtf do TWO people need SIX bathrooms for??? or 4 bedrooms???? i will NEVER understand rich people living in such ginormus places with so much space they DO NOT NEED… do they need a “commercial kitchen” for?

    insane….. take some of those twenties of MILLIONS and DO SOME GOOD WITH IT FOR PEOPLE OR ORGANIZATIONS WHO NEED IT FOR CHRIST’S SAKE….. srsly!!

    i heard ellen’s mom lived with them at one point but then again she’s so rich she can buy her mother a 5 bedroom home of her own….

    Not my style. Doesn’t look like a very warm or happy place to me. Actually it looks more like a mausoleum, I would be afraid to touch anything.

    That being said, I have 2 dogs, 3 young grand children, so I am used to things being a little out of place. I suppose though, if one could afford this property, they could definately afford a maid or two.

    PS A little color might do wonders for the place!

    I agree with Muffie, it’s too antiseptic for me.

    As for the Jeff Conaway story, who the hell has their suicide note notarized?

    Most Americans that make the disgusting Ellen Degenerate rich can’t afford to put Mac & Cheese on the table.

    To Bluejay

    Are you living in the f***ing twilight zone? Julianne Hough is shacking with Ryan and yeah, sure, right, she is still a virgin. Get your head out of the sand. Julianne has been f’ing him like a mink ever since he started dating her.

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
