Ellen DeGeneres House Eyed by Tamara Ecclestone

Petra Ecclestone's older and hotter sister, Tamara, is shopping in L.A. for a mansion of her own, and we've learned she spent time Friday looking at Ellen DeGeneres' compound (a portion of which is seen above), which she could snag for around $50 million.  But Tamara tells us the house was just not for her.

Fact is ... Ellen's house is priced like a bungalow compared to Petra's $85 million mansion that she just bought from Candy Spelling.


Petra looked at seven homes on Friday, ranging in price from around $7 million to $50 mil.

And here are some of the other houses Tamara eyed on Friday.
