In case you ever questioned it, we now have proof that Ellen DeGeneres is SERIOUSLY loaded.
The talk show host and wife Portia de Rossi just bought a Santa Barbara mansion for—WAIT FOR IT— $26.5 million!!!!!
That's right!! $26.5 million!
We keep writing it only because we can't believe it!
On top of it, the digs have 9 fireplaces and ocean views.
And that's not even her only real estate!
Ellen will be adding the insane property to her ever-growing portfolio of southern California pads in Camarillo and Los Angeles.
What we would do with THAT kind of cash!!!!
Want to see how the 1% lives??
