Ellen And Portia List Santa Barbara Villa For $45 Million


We would buy this place in a heartbeat if we had some extra cash lying around!

Ellen Degeneres and wife Portia De Rossi are selling their sprawling Santa Barbara estate for a whopping $45 million, People reports. The talk show host and the actress purchased the mansion, located in Montecito, in 2013 for $26.5 million.

Once they became the owners of this posh pad, they bought two of the neighboring lots and increased their land to almost 17 acres. The residence boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms and 2 half baths, as well as a library, formal dining room, a sunken tennis court, and an outdoor pool.

It was originally built in the 1930s by architect Wallace Frost, who was inspired by Italian architecture, thus the rustic-meets-modern vibe.

There is a lot of indoor/outdoor space, as well as beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. There are eucalyptius and olive trees strewn about the property, which add to the charm.

"The surrounding gardens and olive trees are almost as wonderful as the interior. The house truly feels like it was built out of the landscape, rather than plopped on a plot. It feels ancient, like it’s been there forever. Like that hill was never without the house. This is a home that honors nature, and I love that," the Emmy winner wrote in her book Home.

The couple have quite the real estate portfolio, but we're kinda wondering what's going on...

They are in the process of trying to offload their Beverly Hills condo for $7 million, and they recently dumped their Hollywood Hills home for $9.9 million.

Could there be trouble in paradise? Or are they simply making room for new purchases?

Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin Slash $4.25 Million Off The Original Listing Price For NYC Penthouse


They're trying desperately to uncouple from this place!

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin just re-listed their NYC penthouse for $10 million, which is a lot less than what they were originally asking for it.

The former couple first listed it back in March with a $14.25 million price tag, then reduced it to $12.85 million before taking it off the market last November. Even so, the pair paid only $5.1 million for residence back in 2007, so they still stand to make a profit off the sale.

The 3,892 square-foot loft, located in Tribeca, boasts 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, as well as expansive living and dining rooms and a gourmet kitchen.

Considering their kids go to school on the West Coast and they aren't together anymore, they really have no use for a Big Apple crash pad!

Ben Affleck Moves Out Of Pacific Palisades Home He Shared With Jen Garner And The Kids


We thought they were headed for a reconciliation, but we were wrong!

Ben Affleck has moved out of the Pacific Palisades mansion he shared with estranged wife Jennifer Garner and the kids, Us Weekly reports. The mag claims the actress plans to finally file for divorce, nearly two years after they announced their separation.

The couple announced they were ending their ten year marriage in June 2015, but since then have spent a significant amount of time together with the kids, leading some to believe they'd made the decision to work through their issues.

There have been all types of rumors about their living situation. Some outlets reported that the Batman star moved in next door to be close to the family, others claimed he was living in the guest house, and a report in October said that he was living separately, but decided to move back in.

We don't know where the A-lister is resting his head currently, but we doubt he will venture out of the neighborhood. After all, the pair are committed to co-parenting their children.

Their split came as a shock to many, but apparently they'd been at odds and in couple's therapy "for years" before making the heartbreaking decision to go their separate ways.

"They were going to divorce when Sam was born, but you know how it is — baby comes and solves the issues for a bit, but it's just a Band-Aid. It hasn't been working for ages. Ben truly wanted his idea of family life and the idea of family he had growing up in Boston, so he stayed in it longer than he wanted to because of the kids and the idea of family. But he couldn't save it," a source told the mag at the time.

The pair met on the set of Pearl Harbor in 2001, fell in love while starring in 2003's Daredevil, and married in 2005. They are parents to children Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 4.

What a sad development! We thought they had a chance!
