“Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating. Heartbreaking time across California. Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters. Thank you @LAFD. If you can, support these brave men and women at http://SupportLAFD.org,” he wrote on Twitter.

“1/2 Driving around Point Dume on Saturday. My heart aches for all those who lost their homes and their lives in California. I was one of the lucky ones, my home was only partially destroyed. A lot of people lost everything and will have to rebuild from scratch. (tweet continued) 2/2 I am ok and so grateful for all of the well wishes. Please turn your support to those who need it most here, and throughout California. There’s a Go Fund Me to help people across the state affected by the fires. Please join me if you can.”

    It has got to be an apocalyptic feeling driving through those burnt out streets. My heart goes out to all those affected by these wildfires. I pray everyone stays strong, California will rebuild with the help of all Americans, United we stand as one country. Whether its in South Carolina or California we will rebuild and come back from this.

  • The Noise in The Walls

    What a sad tragedy for all those involved. My heart goes out to everyone. I know the community will rebuild. Happy Birthday Gerry. I wish the circumstances were better but I hope today is a little brighter for you. God Bless

    Hey Les, so the made “their” WeHo property into a “compound”/commune. Looks like she bought all four properties at the end of the block and joined them. Remodeled the houses to all look the same, with a parking area opening out to the street behind.
    Brings new meaning to his ” we/our/us”, LOL.

    That’s MB’s house in west hollywood

    HK had its South African premiere yesterday, 13 November. Director and cinematographer were there. Interesting that the poster has Butler and Common, instead of Gary Oldman. This lady is Donovan’s wife, a few pix here…

    Found this while I was looking at HK on IMDB…The Vanishing (Keepers) has a new poster…

  • AJ

    I’m so use to calling it Keepers, I’m not sure how I feel about The Vanishing now. lol

  • AJ

    Ahhhh! :)

  • Sonia
  • Sonia

    I prefer Keepers too, The Vanishing is a bit of a mouthful. My guess is they wanted to give it more of a ‘thriller’ feel cos Keepers doesn’t say much. It sounded more like a football/sports movie to me, lol.

  • Sonia

    I’ve never seen this pix, apologies if posted before during DOT…

    Nope,Its Gerry’s Los Feliz home !

  • Sunkist

    Similar Spanish style design, (white stucco with barrel tiled roof), but his Los Feliz mansion has squared windows first of all, and a completely different layout. This is the compound of properties in the residential district of WeHo which was bought by Morgan and remodeled. And is at least presently home to several of their friends. Why Morgan would need a compound with four large two-story houses for just her “bf” ( yes, I am back to suspicious) and herself, is strange. Maybe all of them live together under JC’s guru-watchful eye. Like his old rehab? Dunno, but this is not Los Feliz. Les has the WeHo property address linked back a thread or two. You can Google Maps to see it.

  • stonehenge35

    The windows about you speak on house is Gerry’s neighbor’s house. This pic has taken in Gerrys garden, you can see the same lamps in the garden as Gerry’s ones.

    And on BH’s pic you can see Gerry’s window also into the top right corner, same as Gerry’s window on his LOs F. Home.

  • AJ

    He looks so different now from DOT.

  • Sunkist

    Did you Google the WeHo property? Like I said, very similar style. Common Spanish design details. She would have copied the things he likes about the old place if she could, to make him feel more at home. Not trying to argue, if you’ve decided. And those hanging party lites are available everywhere, and he has them at his “log cabin” too.
    Just FYI, this pic says “WeHo compound”. Los Feliz is nearly ten miles east of there on the other side of the 101 freeway. That mansion is a block away from Griffiths Park.

  • becynics

    BTW Esme lives in the WeHo flats. West Hollyood is an incorporated city. Los Feliz is considered part of Cental Los Angeles. No doubt Morgan is the new official decorator for Mr. Butler.

  • Sunkist

    Honestly! Why did she make a “compound” on a residential street? She needs four houses joined by a courtyard for something? Probably three bedrooms each. This was way before the fire. Certainly Not a Love-nest with just Gerard. Like I said, it brings new meaning to his “we/our/us”. And he has had more than ample opportunity to be clear that his house and belongings are just fine, only his guest house and Morgan’s old, third vehicle were destroyed. People all over are still grieving for his “terrible loss”. To me, it’s unconscionable. Partial loss, true, partial spared, true but not attention getting enough. The comments about him on the DM are just savage. No respect at all, let alone no affection. And these are mostly Brits, his own people.
    I wonder if he has cancelled his PR/charity tour of Haiti and Liberia scheduled for this month?

  • Data Miner

    She’s giving him the horizontal discount, I imagine. I couldn’t help myself.

  • Sunkist

    On topic, what do you think of the new The Vanishing poster? Perhaps it’s just me, but did they actually try to make it look “anatomically correct”? Oy, LOL!

  • Sunkist

    So crazy li’l sis, ex with Remy, and crazy bestie Diane, all live within a mile of this new “compound”? Her “design office” is supposed to be there as well. Cozy. Home-sweet-Home, Gerard.

  • Sunkist

    Look at it…

  • Data Miner

    Sunkist, shaking my head.

  • Data Miner

    LMAO. Are you saying Morgan is the leader of a flip it cult?

  • Sunkist

    ? No, just that someone got playful with the new poster. Like they did with the original Little Mermaid one. Disney had to recall about five million, and reprint. That was purposely done and no doubt what it was. This…??? Maybe subliminal, like skull-and-cross bones hidden in alcohol ads. Fact. Marketing.
    And Cult might just be the right word, but JC is guru.

    Looks like the local electric utility company will be found responsible, and held fully liable for the Paradise disaster. A sparking transformer was reported three days before the fire started, and the fire started at that transformer.
    This was not the Woolsey fire that has consumed Malibu much farther south. There have been reports of similar sparking at the Thousand Oaks location where the Woolsey fire started.

  • Data Miner

    Uh huh….. LOL And it’s all about Butler…gimmee da Butler……

    I wonder what Morgan is getting Gerry for his birthday?

    Anywho, you know I don’t do subliminal, right? I’m above that. I can pick it out and it just makes me laugh. No one can “subliminally” control me.

    The d shaped lighthouse?

  • TeaCakes

    Why would she need a compound? Why not? She’s been friends with all these people for a very long time. JC seems to be the common denominator. I believe her baby daddy lives apart from them but still in WeHo. He may or may not be in recovery, too.

    They’re all reeling from the fire and it’s important that none of them backslide into their addictions again. If they can help each other, it’s awesome.

    For that reason, I doubt he’s going to travel to Africa anytime soon. He’s got insurance agents to deal with and probably a builder and architect, too. No one is going to expect him to be flying off doing promos, either. At least not for the immediate future.

    Yeah not a big fan of his DOT look. He looks really good at the moment, IMO. Even in that video interview, where he looked tired and distraught obviously, I thought he looked really hot, lol.

  • Sunkist

    Well now ISIS is claiming responsibility. Aren’t they just the cat’s pajamas…😹

  • Sunkist

    My concern is ONLY for Gerard. JC and his minions are of no interest except where they might concern Gerard. Building a compound, again, not on some acreage in Malibu, but in the heart of a residential neighborhood, is very strange. Was their, and I do not give her credit for all this at all, intention to create a sanctuary for the fallen members of their tribe? An in-town recovery center? Secret from the paps and… (Oopsie). Four big houses, with at least three bedrooms each? How does Gerard fit into this? Does it count that they are not really living together as a private couple, when they have roommates? JC is fostering these people into nothing less than co-dependence. Gerard Really cannot be left alone? But neither can Mr. High Maintenance stand to live with anyone else? So, build multiple houses and let JC play ring master? Very healthy… Did you happen to notice, at the IDF dinner, his plate? They look to have served a kind of eggplant dish. Gerard peeled the skin off it. Granted, that is the way to prepare it. Could you imagine cooking for him everyday? Fussy, spoiled, high maintenance, moody, and emotionally unavailable… but the sex is good. Really? This is a life? Keeping him in the same sort of obedience harness as Shushka, is likely to have exactly the same effect,…none.

    PG&E. Dealt with them professionally for 2 decades. Horrible company. The woman owned a business and saw the sparks flying for months. Made dozens of calls and 3 days before before the fire they said they’d be out be. They didn’t show. Unfortunately, the stupid voters gave huge bonds to cover their asses for such disasters. I hope everyone in Paradise and surrounding areas sues their balls off.

  • Sunkist

    To those who understand the idea of Karma, Michael Avennati, the “lawyer” going after the President, has been arrested for Felony assault and battery/ domestic violence on a live-in girl friend. Felony. There goes his law license. This on top of millions in lost lawsuits from former associates, etc..
    Sad is not a term I would use..

    Hello Tony. Not spending time with your oxygen?

    So tell me, when can I subpoena the audio?

    Or should I pass the note to my mom to give to you?

    And one, ONE super tanker in the entire country, and the State of California would not pay for it to come help until the mega-million dollar homes of donors were going up in flames.

  • Sunkist

    No

  • Data Miner

    I know patterns are not what people look for, but I see it now. Stalk, internet company, family, drugs, then mental diagnosis. You’ve done all this before. You do know Windstream will have to release documentation right?

    Funny though, I really DO have a clean life. That’s the tits isn’t it?

    Also, audio collected while stalking is not admissible in court. Specially since you requested “THREATENED” sexual relations in another state.
