Ellen Pompeo: My Neighbor Took My Chicken Egg

Ellen Pompeo: My Neighbor Took My Chicken Egg

Originally posted 11/29/2012 02:45PM

As the mother of a toddler, Ellen Pompeo is often forced to wake up early – with a little help from her rooster.

During Tuesday's appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actress, 43, dished about owning several hens and one male rooster, a fact that didn't go unnoticed by one of her neighbors.

"I have this other neighbor who I don't know and still don't know and she emailed me one day and said, 'I don't have my rooster anymore,'" Pompeo told Ellen DeGeneres. "'But my hens are very depressed because the rooster isn't around, can I take an egg, a fertilized egg?'"

Rihanna Is Rock Star of Roc Nation Brunch

Grammy nominees Rihanna and Katy Perry upped the glam factor for Roc Nation/Nokia's annual pre-Grammy brunch at Soho House West Hollywood Saturday afternoon.

A slender Rihanna turned heads in her corset and pants, while Perry could not be missed with her bright blue hair, which matched her dress.

Also there to celebrate Grammy weekend was Ellen Pompeo and her music-exec husband Chris Ivery; Nicole Richie, who shared a moment with The X Factor's L.A. Reid as he made his rounds; and Sam Ronson and Rashida Jones, who chatted and ate in the packed sunlit back room. Other talent mingling included Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Corinne Bailey Rae, Ne-Yo and Christina Milian.

Jay-Z may not have been present, but plenty of partygoers were rocking blue accessories – in "silent respect," one was overheard saying – for his newborn daughter, Blue Ivy.

• A case of life imitating art? Like Cougar Town's wine-loving Jules, Courteney Cox enjoyed a glass of wine with her costar Brian Van Holt – who plays her ex-husband on the show – and another man. The trio enjoyed the fresh air and some small bites at the newly reopened Malibu Inn, a beachfront restaurant. The reserved group kept to themselves, heading out together just before 11 p.m.

Grey's Anatomy Recap: What Honeymoon Phase?

Originally posted 10/01/2010 09:00AM

Thursday's Grey's Anatomy began on the stormy morning after Cristina and Owen's wedding, with the bride waking up in a panic next to her new husband. She was married! Owen seemed prepared for a freak-out and encouraged his wife to stay calm. "We're just gonna get up and go to work like always,"he said casually, handing her a multigrain bar and tenderly offering to shampoo her hair.

But it would take more than a good scalp massage to get Cristina through the day. At the urging of Owen and Teddy, Chief Weber overruled trauma counselor Perkins and cleared the resident to return to the OR to help reconstruct the heart of a patient she'd last operated on with Burke. "She won't feel like herself until she's back in surgery again," Teddy insisted.

That would've been true of the old Cristina. Not this one, who's still so traumatized by the hospital shootings that the moment a tray of surgical tools clattered to the floor, she hit the ground, too, overwhelmed by tears and PTSD. Meredith was eventually able to get her BFF back on her feet but the experience so shook Cristina that she removed her wedding band and left it in Owen's hands.

Thankfully, he wasn't about to give up on his marriage that easily. He reminded her she hadn't abandoned him during his own struggle with PTSD. "I'm not going anywhere without you," he promised. To which an approving Mer quipped, "I already fixed her before you came, but that was a nice speech."

Mer had a harder time fixing herself. Still not cleared for surgery, she tried her best to avoid Derek, who was none-too-thrilled to have been left in jail overnight for his latest arrest for reckless endangerment. (He had been urinated on by a meth head while in custody so we can't say we blame him.)

She plays a doctor on TV but at home Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo acts like a college kid, according to her decorator Martyn Lawrence-Bullard.

Lawrence-Bullard designed the rooms inside Pompeo's Spanish-style house in the Hollywood Hills, featured in the May issue of Elle Décor.

"This house is perfect for our family," says Pompeo, 40, who lives with her music producer husband Chris Ivery and their 7-month-old daughter Stella Luna. "It's all about swimming, eating and hanging out with friends. Martyn jokes that we live like college kids – people are coming and going all the time. What can I say? It's a happy place."
