Good for Ellen. She's on top of her game at the moment and she sure can afford it. I just find it a very cold dwelling. It looks more like a modern museum than a home. However, it isn't my home, so congrats to her, may she enjoy her home in good health.

What do you do with a house that size? Stage it? I'm no hater, I just can't imagine having all that space. I have two rooms in my house we don't use and it makes me crazy.

I look at it as a big fck off to all the people who said she would never go anywhere after she came out. Producers tried to black list her. Coming out wasn't celebrated in the 90's the way it is today. A little indulgent but who cares. If I had money out of mu as s I would do it too.

I just don't understand to see the need for a home the size of The Ritz Carlton. Of course it is celebrity ego, but what a waste. These people are paid way too much. I mean how does Alslee Simpson afford a home almost 5 mil?

If it were anyone else I would find this to be incredibly disgusting & self absorbed.

However it's Ellen so - congratulations to her. She absolutely deserves it.

Why do people care what someone else is doing with their own money? Why do some of yall think she shouldn't buy a big over top house? Its her money! I'm sure she donates to charity but she shouldn't have to buy a modest home to make other people feel better

She turned an unfunny stammer into a fortune. No wonder Greg Giraldo killed himself.
