YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Oh Lawhd children, will it ever end?
Thanks to Our Fairy Godmother in Beverly Hills (and confirmed with property records), Your Mama has learned that land luvin' lesbian Ellen Degeneres and her soon to be wifey-poo Portia Di Rossi have snatched up another damn property in Beverly Hills. Yes children, another. It seems there is no end to the amount of money the television talker can afford or is willing to spend on creating the residential compound of her dreams.
After spending somewhere around $40,000,000 to cobble together their current compound of three properties Your Mama figured the co-habiting couple would give their well worked checkbook a rest. However, the soon to be gay-married gabber and her ack-tress fiancée just finished forking over another $5,500,000 to purchase a hillside property on teeny tiny Lago Vista Place.
Property records show the seller of the Lago Vista Place property is Bev Hills jeweler to the stars Nadine Krakov, who could surely spot a cash cow coming her way the moment she caught wind of the Miz D. piloting her Porsche over to Bev Hills and up curvy Cabrillo Drive where she snapped up three properties in rapid and enormously expensive succession.
Your Mama imagines this latest acquisition was considered a prime piece of dirt for the duo due to the fact that it features sight lines right into the famously private and security conscious couple's back yard where Your Mama imagines they probably prefer to sun their hooters and hoo-has without the neighbors watching.
Listing information indicates the newly purchased property on Lago Vista Place includes over an acre of land and a 5 bedroom and 4 bathroom residence that property records show measures 2,872 square feet. Your Mama has no real information about what the couple has planned for their newest purchase, but given that the house was being offered as a "major remodel or tear down," Your Mama imagines it was a piece of residential crap that the compound queens will have torn down by the end of the week.
All the celebrity real estate obsessed children know by now that in early 2007 Miz D. and Miss DiR. spent a spine tingling 29 and some million smackers to scoop up Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick's newly built behemoth and Cabrillo Drive and very shortly thereafter gave celebrity real estate agent Jade Mills another $8,500,000 for the house next door, which the property mavens tore down lickety split in a blaze of television cameras. Most recently, the Sapphic sisters spent an undisclosed sum of paper and coin for the third and last property on Cabrillo Drive. This was a somewhat expected purchase by real estate watchers like Your Mama's who hears through the gossip grapevine that owning these three properties will allow the gurls to request permission from the city of Beverly Hills to gate a good portion of the street. That doesn't mean they will ask for or be granted permission, but that's the rumor and gossip Your Mama's been hearing up and down Sunset Boulevard.
So children, is this the last piece of Miz Degeneres' compound puzzle or might there be one or two additional properties she might like to add to her real estate buffer from the paps and looky loos? Whatever the case Your Mama sincerely hopes Miz D. and Miss DiR. have found their final home because it would be a real shame for them to spend all that money up there on Cabrillo Drive only to turn around and try to sell it off to some Russian oil oligarch, Persian prince or American tech titan looking to break into the movie bizness.
