YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Your Mama spent this Sunday morning as we do every Sunday morning sitting by the window sucking up a big cup of coffee and pouring over Ruth Ryon’s Hot Properties column in the LA Times. This morning, among other juicy tidbits, we learned that Neil Patrick Harris, the recently outed and refreshingly proud gay actor with the tremendous forehead, listed his Studio City house for sale and recently purchased another house.
Although we searched and searched we have yet to come up with any information on the house he’s selling. But with the help of our Fairy Godmother, we were able to get some information and photos of the house Neil bought. It too is located in Studio City and, as Ms. Ryon reported, the house has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in just over 2,400 square feet. The modest 1950s ranch style house is located on the up slope with a long gated driveway that terminates in a drive court and a triple car garage.
The kitchen is remodeled and kitted out with all the accoutrement people want in kitchens nowadays including granite counter tops and high-grade stainless steel appliances. The large pool deck is all brick and is accessed through five sets of french doors. According to the listing the property offers one of the best views in the valley. And it just might, although it’s not located very high up in the hills.
We know most of the photos above are blurry, but children, this is what we got. So yer going to have to squint your eyes and do the best you can to make sense of what you’re looking at.
We confess there is something appealing about N.P.Harris, who has had more than one successful sitcom, including his most recent program How I Met Your Mother, and of course, his iconic role as Doogie Howser the teenage doctor. Your Mama is quite certain the man could afford a much more expensive and sexy house. But instead, he bought something very modest by Los Angeles standards and the house screams “I have nothing to prove!” to the real estate snobs of the world. We are impressed by Neil’s lack of need to impress anyone with the cost of his house.
Now children, we’re keeping the street address in our vault because Neil has not even moved into this house and we think he deserves to at least get aspirin in the medicine chest before the world knows his address. Besides, we do not want to be responsible for a huge number of homosexuals driving by squeezing their nipples and flashing their naughty bits at Neil hoping he’ll invite them up the long drive. What we will tell you is the house is located in Longridge Estates, a reasonably posh but not fancy section of Studio City, just south of Ventura Boulevard. It also happens to be located right next door to a house once owned by former congressman Barry Goldwater Jr.
We know we are going to get a slew of comments and emails from a bunch of angry gays and crazed fans who think we’re doing a real disservice to y’all by not posting the street address. And you know what? We don’t care. We have to draw the lines where we feel we need to draw the lines. If you don’t like it, well, complain about it somewhere else because Your Mama can not hear all you foul mouthed bitches who want to come up in here an read this blog and then tell us how terrible you think it is. Show some respeckt and just be grateful for what we give you.
Now then. Neil hunny, we wish you all the best in your new house and we would like to tell you that we are proud as parents about your direct and no nonsense coming out. All the closeted gays in the film and television bizness could, and maybe should, take a lesson from you. Well done.
