Ellen DeGeneres has revealed that she is living at Courteney Cox's house because the talk show host needed a place to stay.
DeGeneres made the revelation on Thursday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where she introduced Cox as her "landlord." The "Friends" alum was quick to correct her, claiming that she was DeGeneres' roommate, not landlord, sparking curiosity from the audience.
"I should explain," DeGeneres said, according to People. "I'm not having marital troubles. I'm not out of my house because I'm — I'm not living with Courteney Cox because I'm kicked out of my house," she joked.
It turns out that she and wife Portia de Rossi had sold their house and needed to move out.
"We sold our house here in Beverly Hills and I needed a place to stay," DeGeneres said. "[Courteney was] kind enough to say, 'Yes, stay at my house.'"
As for how their living arrangements are working out, Cox admitted they were having some problems.
"Well Ellen, let's just put it this way: first of all, you know, you're my style guru. So, I was nervous about you staying here, being that I haven't redone it. I haven't been there in a year," she said. "So, I had it cleaned and I moved everything off the right side of the bathroom so you'd have your space in the drawers."
After DeGeneres had moved in, Cox was slightly dismayed to discover her new roommate had taken over the house.
"I was just really ready for you and then my assistant went there the next day after you left and [I asked her], 'How does it look? Is it okay?' And she's like, 'It looks great.' I said, 'Show me around,' and it was like, all of a sudden, 'Wait a minute. Ellen's toothbrush is on my side.' I was like, 'Well, where is my makeup?'" she continued, "So, essentially, you're a terrible roommate. You took over my side and your side."
DeGeneres quickly diverted the blame to de Rossi.
"I only have one side and she happened to be there one night," she said.
DeGeneres and de Rossi sold their Beverly Hills mansion in April for approximately $47 million. They had listed it on the market a month earlier for an asking price of $53.5 million, according to The Wall Street Journal. The couple purchased the property in 2019, for $42.5 million, from Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo, who had reportedly spent $7 million on renovation work after purchasing it for $33.9 million in 2018.
