In response...

...to Mister Big Time's request for information about a house on 20th Street in Santa Monica that was sold by a celebrity sounding trust with a celebrity friendly money manager: Your Mama has learned from one of our better placed sources that the house was owned by Australian actors Rebecca Rigg (Ellie Parker, L.A. Doctors, All Saints) and Simon Baker (L.A. Confidential, The Guardian, The Devil Wears Prada, Smith).

Your Mama understands that the couple, who sold their house in December of 2007 for $2,895,000, purchased another, much more expensive home in Santa Monica that better accommodates their three small children, one of whom claims fellow Aussie Nicole Kidman as a porcelain skinned godmother. The Rigg/Baker's new home, with 6 bedroom and 5 bathrooms in 4,755 square feet, cost the couple more than $4,500,000, so they must be doing alright in the scratch your eyes out world of Hollywood.

Sorry, this house is one big yawn.

I lived on 20th back in the '90s -- a few blocks up near San Vicente. Though the neighborhood's architecture (mostly revival styles built between the '30s and the '50s) isn't always interesting on an individual basis, it does tend to be more charming in aggregate on what are usually pleasant tree-lined streets.

I tried to crack this one when it ogirinally posted and came up dry. Good for you, Mama, and kudos to your cadre of whisperers! Makes this site such fun!

Incidentally, what ever became of the mystery question around the holidays about worst tipper, etc.? Mama, do you know?
