Ellen DeGeneres is apparently living at her friend Courteney Cox’s home, as she revealed on yesterday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
While introducing Cox on the episode Thursday, DeGeneres noted that she is currently referring to the Friends alum as her “landlord.” Cox appeared on screen, firstly correcting DeGeneres by saying, “I don’t consider me a landlord, I consider myself your roommate.”
In agreement with Cox, DeGeneres admitted, “Yes, we’re roommates. We don’t see each other a lot, but we’re roommates.” 63-year-old DeGeneres asked how she is doing as Cox’s new roommate, to which she replied, “Well, Ellen, let’s just put it this way: first of all, you’re my style guru, so I was nervous about you staying there being that I haven’t re-done it or I just haven’t been there in a year. 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 going through all that, Ellen’s toothbrush still ended up on Courteney’s side of the bathroom to which she denounced her, “So essentially, you’re a terrible roommate. You took over my side and your side.
As for the reason why DeGeneres has been staying over at Cox’s, Ellen was clear that it doesn’t have anything to do with marital troubles with her wife Portia de Rossi.”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,” DeGeneres said. “We sold our house here in Beverly Hills and I needed a place to stay, and you [Courteney] were kind enough to say, ‘Yes, stay at my house.'”
Ellen admitted to rummaging through Courteney’s drawers looking for “office supplies” and stumbled on a pair of “undies for two” in her search that she videotaped. Upon further investigation, Ellen discovered a puppet that has her likeness, kind of freaking her out.
56-year-old Cox isn’t the only former Friends star that DeGeneres has become close with over the years. At the start of the pandemic, DeGeneres posted a video on Instagram of her phone call with Jennifer Aniston. “In times like these it’s nice to have friends like @JenniferAniston,” she captioned the post.
