ELLEN DEGENERES AND PORTIA DE ROSSI ARE OPENING A VEGAN RESTAURANT

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi are looking for real estate in Montecito, California. But this time they don’t want a house to flip, they’re looking for a location to open up a vegan restaurant. Although they still have a place in Los Angeles, the two women spend most of their time in Montecito, where they call Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle their neighbors. The moneyed neighborhood has some very high-end restaurants, but Portia and Ellen are NOT thrilled with the vegan options. They’re working with a private chef and hope to partner up and open up a place on Coast Village Road later this year.

ELLEN DEGENERES AND PORTIA: AUSTRALIA IS BECKONING!

Is Ellen DeGeneres gearing up to say see ya to the USA, and G’day mate to Australia? Ellen and her wife Portia De Rossi just listed their Montecito, California estate for $46.5 million and according to a friend, the reason is because they are now seriously thinking of relocating (at least for the majority of the time) to Portia’s homeland. There are  a few reasons for the move – first of all, Portia wants to be closer to her family and childhood friends. Ellen’s career is all but over, so she has no work reason to stick around, and they are both fed up with the politics of the USA. Their plan is to buy a smaller place in California and a large compound/working farm in Australia (Portia loves horses) and grow old together down under. We predict they will be flipping Australian houses also…

WILL THE REAL ELLEN DEGENERES PLEASE STAND UP!

We were as surprised as you are to hear about the “toxicity” on the set of the Ellen Degeneres show. But we were even MORE surprised to note that TMZ has never written a negative word about the Ellen or her show, despite the fact that they MUST have seen this coming! BuzzFeed totally eclipsed TMZ with this scoop and we can tell you why. TMZ and Ellen are both Warner Bros shows, so apparently TMZ was “discouraged” from writing negative info about Ellen. It’s the same kind of intimidation that makes employees afraid to report their bosses, and women afraid to accuse powerful men of crimes. Insiders say powerful Ellen is NOT the nice person she appears to be on TV. We applaud Brad Garrett for being the ONLY celebrity courageous enough to speak the truth about Ellen – of course he’s now blackballed from her show!

ANNE HECHE AND THOMAS JANE: MADE FOR EACH OTHER?

Here’s a couple we can enjoy seeing together. They both have interesting histories. Anne Heche, 49, and Thomas Jane, 50, costarred on HBO’s Hung as a divorced couple. Jane played an underpaid Detroit schoolteacher who became a male prostitute for the money. Jane also implied that he had done some real-life hustling of his own as a teen in Hollywood. (We had heard that rumor and were delighted when he owned up to it.) Anne had a notorious crazy-time romance with Ellen DeGeneres that ended badly. Anne and Thomas (both are now divorced with kids) were longtime friends – they started holding hands a few months ago, and now it’s a full-blown romance.

NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD: ELLEN DEGENERES AND PORTIA DE ROSSI

They got married over nine years ago and still act like newlyweds. Ellen and Portia are happily shopping in West Hollywood, but they had a close call a few days ago. They recently bought a beachfront house in Carpenteria, California, and on Monday the raging fires came so close they had to evacuate their cats and dogs – and move into another one of their homes. Luckily, their house was spared so they have a lot to celebrate…

EDGAR THE OSCAR PIZZA DELIVERY GUY IS NOW FAMOUS

114095PCN_Pizzeria06cut

This is Edgar. He suddenly became a celebrity Sunday night when he delivered pizza to Ellen Degeneres and the star-studded Oscar audience. Edgar says he had no idea what he was getting into, and that Ellen has ordered from his pizza parlor several times before. Edgar enjoyed his unexpected notoriety and Big Mama’s and Papa’s Pizzeria (Sunset location) has already posted photos of their Oscar triumph. (Click HERE to see them) We bet their phone is ringing off the hook today. One question remains: Did Edgar ever get that big tip from Harvey Weinstein?

ELLEN DEGENERES AND HER HOT PROM DATE

#ellendegeneres #janetcharlton

You can’t help but love this photo of Ellen Degeneres at her high school prom in all her 70’s glory. That plaid dress might look a bit Amish if it wasn’t provocatively unbuttoned. The most telling feature of this photo is the fact that her date is SO good looking. She must have been really popular to land such a handsome guy. He somewhat resembles a young Christopher Reeve. We missed it when she recreated the photo on her show a few years ago she wore a replica dress and brought back her date.

TROUSDALE ESTATES: ELLEN DEGENERES GOT IT RIGHT THIS TIME




What can we say about the Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills, except that it might be the most important neighborhood in California for anyone who loves mid-century modern architecture. We wouldn’t think of missing an open house or estate sale in Trousdale, just so we can drool over the house close up. According to the RealEstalker, Ellen DeGeneres has finally bought a house we really envy. She paid over 17 million for an 8500 sq ft 4 bed, 6 bath, Hal Levitt masterpiece built in 1958. (Jennifer Aniston’s last house was also a Hal Levitt design.) Famed decorator Kelly Wearstler redid the interior to the max before selling to Ellen at a hefty profit.

NICK CANNON WATCHES EVERY STEP HIS PRECIOUS MARIAH TAKES

#mariahcarey

It takes three men to get Mariah Carey down the stairs safely in her high heels. Nick Cannon, who’s holding up the rear, hosted an event to raise money for Project Canvas, a creative arts program that Nick and Mariah founded to “nurture optimism among youths.” Besides the Cannons, celebrities including Ellen DeGeneres, Mr Brainwash, and Cee Lo Green, designed sneakers that were auctioned off to raise money. Nick wore his sneakers but Mariah refused.
