YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Listen my little chickadees, Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter have a rather punishing day ahead of us so we're going to keep this one short and sweet.

It is well established that Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter have a serious, incurable and disturbing addiction to reality television. As a result of our television watching malady, one of the programs that keeps the TiVo warm and whirring is that wacky Work Out program on the Bravo that features exercise queen Jackie Warner, her glittering white teeth and a parade of traumatic and dramatic lezbeeun relationships that are, quite frankly, dee-lishusly embarrassing to watch.

During the first season of Work Out, Miss Warner shacked up with that ridiculous and violent Brazilian artist gurl in a fancy house with a Carrara marble covered kitchen and a swimming pool out back. In the second season, out went the Brazilian and the fancy house and the heavily highlighted and uber-toned trainer moved to a much more modest and far less glammy house in the Hollywood Hills. The forty year old ladee lover quickly moved her much younger gurlyfriend of a few weeks in with her. Gotta love the lesbians...always eager to make house even before they know each other's middle names.

Anyhoo, after several episodes of watching cars whiz by the Miss Warner's windows, Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter became curious as to where Miss Warner's new digs are located. With the help of Lucy Spillerguts and Our Fairy Godmother in West Hollywood, we eventually learned that Miss Warner forked over $947,000 to purchase a 1,611 square foot house on curvy swervy and beastly bizzy Laurel Canyon Boulevard in September of 2006.

Yes children, we realize 2006 was a long time ago, particularly in the lexicon of celebrity real estate where the rich and famous can be fickle in regards to their living situations. However, we're short on time and it's way too early in the morning to listen to y'all complain so Your Mama asks that you keep any lip, sass and judgment to yo-self. Thank you.

For those children not familiar with the canyon roads in Los Angeles, let Your Mama tell you that Laurel Canyon Boulevard is a twisting and winding road where people drive their luxury automobiles like they got the devil at their backs. Miss Warner is obviously far more brave than we because Your Mama would be paralyzed with fear each and every time we had to back our big BMW out of the driveway and on to Laurel Canyon Boulevard where one's ass end could easily be wiped out by a fast moving SUV whisking a high profile person from the studios in Burbank back to their bungalow at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood.

Listing information for the property at the time of the sale shows the house measures in at 1,611 square feet with 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms including a nice sized master bedroom with a peaked ceiling and French doors to the garden. In addition to the smallish open plan living/dining/kitchen area, there is a tile floored family room/den that opens to the back deck, and a nursery/office room, which we imagine it just too small to call a proper bedroom. The flat back yard includes a courtyard deck and a small grassy area at the back where Miss Warner's pooches probably piddle and poop. At the time Miss Warner purchased the property, the detached garage had been converted into some sort of recording studio. Your Mama isn't sure whether Miss Warner has turned the garage back to its original purposing or if she's utilizing the space for an office or to temporarily house one of her many high maintenance ex-gurlfriends.

Now children, before you start tearing into the day-core, please understand that the sofas and chairs and other assorted furniture items you see in the photos do not, and we repeat, do not belong to Miss Warner but rather the previous owner, who is not a celebrity.

TMZ.com have reported that Dr Phil's house is for sale. The Real Estalker talked about this in April, and they have put it under as "EXCLUSIVE". rude.

Anyone know the location of Jackie's house from Season 1 of Work Out?

You couldn't pay me enough to live on Laurel Canyon Blvd. While it's fun to drive up and down it, I'd have to be at my hair stylist nearly every day to deal with the gray hairs associated with residing there.

House is rustic, in keeping with most of the homes there. Not my thing, but if it turns Ms. Warner's crank, good on her.

I love/hate that show. Thanks for the info on her (not new) digs.

Supposing this place is a case where decor either makes or breaks it, because the bones are not so much to get excited about.

she's probably always running late, and needed something fast...she's one fierce lady as it is. The show is also interesting...got to meet that sexy baldy at the Ivy in san diego, had a couple shots together. god is he better in person and not a douche.

With Alessandra on Laurel Canyon. If it isn't speeding cars, it's commuter traffic at a syrupy crawl.

The irony about less desirable streets like this is the limited upside often keeps the obnoxious remodelers at bay. Nice little houses on nice little lots are more likely to stay that way -- like Doheny Drive, on the Beverly Hills side of the street.

If anyone can back into traffic, it's our gurl Jackie……

I hate it, no pool, no thank you!

Fabulously Lizy said...

I agree,
Laurely Canyon is much too busy a street. I had a friend by a house there and within a year he put it back on the market. Traffic was killing him!

Stacey said...

Your mama, I am so happy you posted this one! I have also wondered where Ms. Warner was residing throughout the last season. My husband and I narrowed it down to one of the canyon roads,and now we know which one. Thank you!

A tiny, insignifigant house related to someone who can barely be called a celebrity, if at all...think you could've skipped this one, Mama...;-)
