Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres showcase Beverly Hills home
Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres recently gave an inside look into their lavish Beverly Hills home, which comes complete with a glass ping-pong table and artwork by legends like Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
The couple opened up their home for the October issue of Architectural Digest. The home is outfitted with antique furniture and rugs, sculptures, and a closet full of de Rossi's stilettos and DeGeneres' sneakers. The home also has a pool with Brazilian-granite coping borders.
"We never had a house when I was growing up," DeGeneres explained to the magazine. "We always rented. But my father would dream, and we used to look at houses all the time. I'd pick out which bedroom would be mine and get all excited."
She added, "The first thing I did when I made money was buy a house. And then --"
"Another one," De Rossi interrupted. "And another one and another one and another one..."
The home is up for sale, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times on October 3. The property, which is just under 3 acres, has an asking price of $49 million. It had originally been put up for sale in June. The property has nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms with two guest houses.
Last time de Rossi was seen on television was on "Better Off Ted," which lasted two seasons and went off the air in 2010. The actress is also known for roles on "Ally McBeal" and "Arrested Development."
De Rossi and DeGeneres were married back in August of 2008, at a time when same sex marriage licenses were granted in California.
