Ellen and Portia On the Move. Again.

Late yesterday afternoon, one of Your Mama's most reliable sources whispered in our ear that talk show queen Ellen Degeneres and her Sapphic partner Portia di Rossi have vacated their Marmol and Radziner designed house on Zorada Drive in the Hollywood Hills and moved West to the Hills of Beverly. According to our source, and a little elbow grease and research, Your Mama has learned that the high-powered lezbo duo have moved into a recently renovated Buff and Hensman designed house above Coldwater Canyon Drive that once belonged to none other than acturuss turned tell-all novelist Joan Collins.

As of today, Your Mama can't confirm any of this rumor, gossip and innuendo with property records, but our source is always reliable and has excellent resources that we can't reveal lest we expose her identity. Of course, we'll keep our eyes and ears open for more information and confirmation.

1195 Cabrillo? 15363 Mulholland Drive? 2220 Bowmont Drive? Do tell, which one you are talking about.

My guess is the Cabrillo house. She has been looking at it for a while but there were supposidly issues with the foundation of the bunker that holds the pool to the side of the hill.

My thoughts are also the Cabrillo Drive house. It was the last house Joan owned before she moved to Sierra Towers (which she left when she moved to an NYC condo in 2002).

I too would love to see some pics of that house, knowing JC it would be unique.

The Cabrillo house has been completely rehabed to the tune of about $15MM by the current owner, Max Muchnick, the creator/exec producer of Will & Grace. The guest house has cooper counter tops in the kitchen. The floor of the foyer in the main house is leather. The backyard was built up and attached to the side of the hill by the earlier mentioned bunker which houses all the pool equipment, garages and a gym with wet and dry saunas and several baths. The pool sits on top of the bunker at ground level with views of Century City & the valley below. It's quite spectacular. Word on the street is Max couldn't afford to keep the place once he finished the rehab.

It IS the Cabrillo Drive house. It was built for the English actor Laurence Harvey (who was incidentally a friend of Joan Collins') by Buff and Hensman.

It was built in 1962 and is quite modern looking. Joan Collins bought it in 1986 or 1987 with a few pennies from her 'Dynasty' fortune and sold it in 1994 or 1995.

Mama please get your hands on some pictures!

The house on Cabrillo needed a multimillion dollar overhaul. Just like it's former owner. Her foundation is sliding down the hill too.

Im pretty sure that Ellen lives on a small street off of Rising Glen. In fact, I recognized the pool that her and her crew where filmed at during a segment on the oscars. I think, she also owns the house just above it.

Linda dahling, back off bitch. The air mattress foundation between your ears is showing again. That piece of shit house you own in B.H.P.O. isn't even worth overhauling, a cheap and easy tear down worthy of the For Rent sign on the front lawn. Don't look so suprised. Oh wait. I forgot you can't help it thanks to your plastic surgery excesses. Take a few extra deep breaths of that thin mountain air you live in and pop a soothing Yanni CD into your player since Ramtha's love, light and flowers meditating is obviously failing you.

So I can position my telescope up on Lago Vista for a view of some hot girl-on-girl action?

You can but if Ellen is your idea of a "hot girl"...well 'nuff said...

I'm pretty sure that it's 1196 Cabrillo. There's only 3 houses on that street; Jade Mills, big Bev. Hills realtor lives in 1192. 1196 is in the name of a trust called Chicago Son and Muchnick's from Chicago so I think it's 1196 and not 1195. Let me know if I'm wrong...

FYI there is growing suspicion that their relationship is on the rocks - and that the "iggy incident" on air had more to do with portia than iggy. them vacating their home adds to the rumors...

EJ is right, it's actually 1196 Cabrillo...still it is Joan Collins' old house which Max bought and has now sold to Ellen.

The Joan Collins house was practically torn down to build this new one a couple of years ago. The other house on the street, owned by realtor Jade Mills, is a rental. Why doesn't Ellen buy that too?

Anonymous said...

Didn't Ellen buy another house from that Mutchnick dude a few years ago?

It's 1196. 1192 is currently leased out by the owner, but has also been sold to Ellen. She's evicting everybody because she wants both for private use. I know, because I just stayed there with some friends.

I have a picture of the 1196 cabrillo house from when Russ and Cheryl Snow owned it. They bought it from Joan Collins in '94 and sold it to composer Jerry Herman around 2000. Their daughter Amy Snow lived in the guesthouse and saw Ellen looking at the property when it was on the market 7 or 8 years ago. I'm sure it looks very different now, but I'll glady post pictures if you let me know how.

Max Muchnick has good taste that's why Ellen has bought the property. for the person who said he couldn't afford it after the rehab( ha ha to you). ellen keeps him in business. not to mention all the royaltys of the first openly gay citcom which by the way was a huge success, if you didn't know.
