Lynch, 53, who has been separated from Embry since February, had sought in divorce papers to terminate the court's jurisdiction to award spousal support to her ex. Embry's requests came in her response filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Lynch said in July that their breakiup is "not dramatic," adding, "It's not a horrible thing. … It's two people who just decide it's better to go apart than stay together."

American Horror Story Creator Ryan Murphy Offers Peek Inside His Beverly Hills Mansion

It's not every house – or couple – that can welcome Reese Witherspoon, Jane Lynch and Julie Roberts to dinner all on the same night, but Glee, American Horror Story and The New Normal creator Ryan Murphy and his husband, photographer David Miller, did just that, when in June they hosted the $40,000-a-plate dinner for President Obama.

Of course, besides great connections, it also helps to have a $10 million showplace to call home, which the couple – who wed last 4th of July – also have, as seen in The Hollywood Reporter's first-ever Home Issue.

Located near the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Spanish Colonial residence was first built in 1927 and last owned by Diane Keaton. Murphy bought it in 2010 and worked with designer Cliff Fong to add several colorful touches – including quirky antiques and figurines with sombreros circling a courtyard water fountain.
