I went to a fundraiser a few years ago at the Playboy mansion and saw this house. It is located directly next to the Playboy mansion. If anyone is interested the address is: 360... South Mapleton Drive, Los Angeles, CA

I don't get how Ellen became popular. Her stand-up wasn't that great. She seems like a nice person, though.

I'd be happy "just" to have a 250k house rather than this crappy 1 bedroom apartment. Can never get ahead.

Ellen has room for one of our Eden domes in that backyard full of medicinal foods and herbs. Ellen - why haven't I heard from you? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NXdtqtmEHo

No, the Stahl House by Pierre Koenig is the most iconic modern house in LA. http://www.stahlhouse.com The Brody House is nice but it's a mish-mash of older Modern icons, including also homes by Frank Lloyd Wright, in LA and elsewhere, and by Richard Schindler. I mean it's nice and I'd take it if she wanted to give it away - but then I'd sell it.
