YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Bones actor David Boreanaz has been much in the news lately, or at least splashed across all the gossip glossies, tabloids and blogs, due to his alleged affair with now infamous VIP party hostess and alleged ho wrangler Rachel Uchitel who has become a household name lately due to her alleged affair with that 14-timing dog Tiger Woods. Now listen children, Your Mama ain't saying there's a connection, because we certainly don't know nuthin' from a screwdriver, but not long after word leaked out that Mister Boreanaz had allegedly done the dirty with Miss Uchitel while his acturuss wifey Jaime Bergman was preggers with their second baby, the married couple's house above Los Angeles' Sunset Strip hit the market with an asking price of $3,249,000.
Mister Boreanaz is the Saturn Award winning lead player and a producer on a tee-vee program called Bones. His past entertainment bizness successes include a few years on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which lucky for him, turned into a spin-off show called Angel. In the late 1990s Mister Boreanaz's blondie baby momma Jaime Bergman worked as a St. Pauli Girl and later bared her boobies and baby maker in the slick pages of Playboy as well as appeared in at least a couple of Playboy videos. Miss Bergman moved into more mainstream fare with roles like "Girl #2" in Shasta McNasty and "Buxum Blond" in Soulkeeper before she had a good couple of years playing the naughtily named B.J. Cummings on a program called Son of the Beach, a short-lived parody on Baywatch.
Property records are a wee bit wacky on this one, but best as we can tell, Mister Boreanaz bought his two parcel property in May of 2000 for an undisclosed amount of money. As best as we can sort out from listing information, the compound like residence contains 3 bedrooms and 3.5 poopers in the main house and another one or two bedrooms and a single pooper in the detached guesthouse/media room that opens up to the brick terrace that surrounds the dark bottomed swimming pool and spa.
The property is fully walled, gated and hedged–meaning there ain't nuthin' for none of you people to see iffin any of you puppies get a wild and stoopid hair to hop in your hoopdies and head up into the hills above the Sunset Strip. Behind the gates, the front facade of the ranch style residence presents an unassuming and lackluster air of modesty and, quite frankly, looks like about 80% of the houses in far less glittery but no less celebified Studio City, CA.
Inside, things improve dramatically. On one side of the narrow entrance hall is a living room with wood floors, a fireplace and a vaulted and beamed ceiling. Mister and Missus Boreanaz have furnished the room in a comfortable and traditional–if not particularly inspired–manner with a brown leather sofa and a couple of chunky brown leather chairs flanking the fireplace. What Your Mama appreciates most about the day-core in this room are those deep orange velvet curtains and that the knick knacks and paddy whacks actually look like they were bought and placed around the room by the home owner and not a nice, gay decorator trying to make it look like the home owner did the decorating.
Opposite the living room is the family room which has the same wood floors and vaulted and beamed ceiling as the living room. A huge red sectional sofa is tucked up into the corner for the best viewing of the flat screen tee-vee mounted on the wall. The cottage vibe continues in the renovated and well equipped eat-in kitchen which has more of the same lovely wood floors and vaulted and beamed ceiling as in the living and family rooms, top grade stainless steel appliances, a work island wrapped with beadboard and topped with a chopping board wood counter top.
The simply and barely furnished master bedroom is privately situated on the second floor, according to listing information, and includes a vaulted ceiling, built-in cabinetry, French doors that open to a small, private balcony, an updated pooper wrapped mostly in a yellow-ish tumbled stone tile, and a custom fitted walk-in closet.
The media room has state of the art equipment, according to listing information, and dark, chocolate wood built-ins, deep red velvet black out curtains, and a cozy if hard to keep clean white sofa and a couple of white upholstered chairs surround a dark red, tufted ottoman. A good chunk of the media room is, unfortunately, dedicated to a saloon-like space with a lot of dark wood, a built-in bar with a few bar stools, and a circular built-in booth lit by a crystal chandelier. About the only nice thing we're prepared to say about this saloon-like space is that it's a perfectly convenient spot near all the booze where liquor lovers like Your Mama can belly up to the bar on movie night.
Beside the swimming pool and behind the guesthouse/media room, are a fire pit with built-in seating surrounding it and a trellis shaded outdoor entertainment area with a fireplace and a built-in barbecue center that includes several cooking surfaces, a sink, a fridge and a beer tap. Now chickens, we know that some of you beer people will swoon over the built-in beer tap but it only reminds Your Mama of those three horrible frat house parties we made the mistake of going to a thousand years ago, back in our university days. Of course, if that tap could be converted to a gin & tonic dispenser we just might feel differently about it.
One of the Boreanaz's nearby neighbors is none other than celebrity plastic surgeon Richard Ellenbogen who the children may recall appeared regularly on that disturbing reality program Dr. 90210 and who, coincidentally, listed his house directly across the street from Mister and Missus Boreanz in October of 2009. Dr. Ellenbogen's vine covered villa remains for sale with an asking price of $3,495,000.
Property records show Mister Boreanaz also owns a 1,680 square foot condo in Park City, UT that he picked up in July 2006 for $829,920.
