YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Good grief, Your Mama is getting tired of looking at ugly damn houses and we know the children are too. But we got to discuss what we got to discuss, and this morning it is the poorly decorated Hollywood Hills house of catwalker Kylie Bax.

The super slim hipped Kylie was just another pritty gurl from New Zealand until the strange and fabulous Miss Karl Lagerfeld got his gloved hands on her, and transformed her into a short haired, bleached blond wunderkind moe-dell who strutted her tall and sexy stuff down all the best high fashion runways and had her pictures done by all the best photographers. Suffice to say that Miss Bax was a somewhat androgynous phenom back in her salad days as a mannequin.

More recently, the big breasted and sports loving Kiwi has stripped down for the pages of Sports Illustrated and stripped even farther down for the pages of Playboy, thus turning herself from the envy of fat gurls everywhere into the masturbation fantasy of countless mens who had never seen a Vogue or Harper's Bazaar magazine. And of course, like so many photogenic ladees, she's also been trying to make it as an ack-tur-us in Hollywood.

Your Mama has never even heard of the films Miss Bax has been featured, but whatever the case, she has been living up in the Hollywood Hills in this house which property records indicate she purchased in March of 2004 for $1,250,000. Conveniently located just up the road from the Laurel Canyon Country Store, where untold numbers of Laurel Canyon dwelling celebs buy their milk and cookies, Miss Bax's somewhat Mediterranean style house measures 2,530 square feet with three bedrooms and four bathrooms.

There are a few features of this hillside home that Your Mama appreciates quite a bit. We can always get behind an attached two car garage to keep the BMWs from getting banged up on the street, and that third floor covered terrace looks like an excellent spot for Miss Bax to relax and read scripts and for Your Mama to work the crossword puzzles.

Inside we find a renovated house with shiny wood floors to reflect what appears to be very little natural light. The kitchen looks all cherry wood, stainless steel and black granite, which is certainly luxurious, but not exactly interesting anymore since that every Tom, Dick and Sally with a few extra bucks to spare drops black granite down on their kitchen cabinets.

It's not really the house itself that Your Mama objects. It's the unimaginative and uninspired interiors. We understand that Miss Bax is now married with a couple of kids, but that does not mean the living room needs to look like some sort of room for wayward and unwanted furniture. Honestly people, what's with that monster television screen, the bean bag in the corner, and the obviously too small Persian rug that looks like it was bought on sale and in a moment of desperation? And the overhead light fixture? Ack! Kylie hunny, you are a model and know all about good lighting, so go out and get a table lamp or two. Overhead lighting like that is a disaster. Imagine how Miss Lagerfeld would recoil at walking into the living room sneering, "You want me to sit...herrrre? Under that light thing in the ceiling?"

Now children, we know that not every "celebrity" has the income or the inclination to hire a nice gay decorator to work their house. But surely Kylie has come in contact with a stylish homosexual or two in the fashion bizness who would be more than happy to give her a few pointers. If not, well then, Miss Bax, give Your Mama a shout and we'll hook you up with someone we know who can whip that place into shape for $5,000 or less.

I looked at the pictures before reading the entry, and my first thought was, 'They need a nice gay decorator'.

Mama, you're such a good influence...

The house itself is not bad, although it is lacking in natural light. I love the modest size of it. But the furnishings are pretty lame. That kitchen is horrible. Cherry cabinets and black counters already scream dated to me. And come on Kylie, surely you can upgrade to a slim LCD or Plasma on a nice television cabinet. Even I, with absolutely no interior design creditials, can make that place look great with $5,000.

Oh I like this house very much from the street, but I wouldn't have guessed the interior would have been such a wreck, not unlike the D list films in which she's had minor roles. Anyway... she is stunning, and should have enough sense to at least change the lighting as we've already said. That big box projection TV looks like it was already in the house when she bought - gots to go Ta-Day girlfriend. Oh well, c'est la vie. I would like to move out of my bungaLOW into something like this. Hmmm....

IMHO the kitchen is the best thing about the inside..... in that its the best thing in a bad lot, and the inside is better than the outside....

I hope whoever buys it does a knock-down & rebuild on it. I can't think when I last saw a house this ugly.

This house is not ugly. This is the home of a family. All the "stuff" is laying around. The baby's high chair is just off the kitchen. These photos should not have been taken. This is window peeping in the worst sense. Somebody's head should roll for this. Why weren't these rooms cleaned up and staged? Granted that living room is all wrong, but it should have been "fixed" before the photo was taken. The realtor should be canned.

Is that the neighbor's balcony visible from the balcony? Too close for comfort. A pretty boring house, and I can't say I know more about Kylie Bax than that she was a model. I had no idea that Lagerfeld used her.

The outside of this house is a tease. The only decent room is the bathroom.

Why are they displaying that tiny ugly rug like that? Ugly.
