Well, the stale jokes didn't actually build anything. Handler is supposedly just leasing this house until she can find the purchasable palace of her dreams. The place sounds lovely — modern but lush — and well worth the $35,000k/month.

The outdoor space seems especially nice, as do most LA backyards to sad East Coast rat-box dwellers, I suspect. From Real Estalker:

Past the swimming pool–that actually has a rare diving board–and beyond a series of thick vertical posts and a wedge-shaped wall that disappears into the ground, sits the guesthouse/art studio/gym as well as the stables and tack room where, we imagine, the horse Mister Leno gave Miz Handler now lives although we find it difficult, nay impossible, to fathom Miz Handler actually straddling and riding a horse of that sort. The backyard grounds also include a built-in barbecue, a dining terrace with built-in seating shaded by pergola draped and woven with a thick carpet of vines, and a circular built-in fire pit surrounded by a circular trough of grey stones that's surrounded by a built-in circular concrete bench, a shape replicated in a dry garden of concentric circles in the front yard.

Pergola with vines! Sigh. I should start doing stand-up with old 2007 jokes and vague racism and see how far it gets me!
