It might be just me, but for 39 million, this house should be prettier than what it is. It looks like a revamped Brady bunch house from the 70's.

It's her money but what a waste. I don't understand why anyone needs to spend more than 5 million on a house.

It seems the Ellen and Portia move every 18 months or so. I wouldn't do it, but I guess it suits them. Her homes have all been uber-expensive and pretty special. Good for her.

If she's happy that is all that matters. That house is not to my taste even if I could afford it but she seems to do well buying and selling

I know this house is spectacular, but I don't like the way it looks. It's shape is too disjointed for my taste.

Ellen's career really is an amazing success story if you think about. Most would have thrown in the towel after the second sitcom where she played the laid off dot commer.

Wow $40 million on a house?? I knew her show was doing good, guess now the money's really been coming in. Good for her.

A 40 MILLION dollar house is vulgar, arrogant and selfish. Ellen could live more modestly, and use that money to create simple homes for millions and millions of impoverished families in the usa and around the world. She didn't even work hard for the money, it just fell into her lap through an easy job.

Yeah, but only if that's what a person likes in a house.
