“I didn’t believe at first,” she said when asked if she believed in supernatural phenomena. “But I lived in this house in Laurel Canyon, which is in L.A., obviously, and it was Gypsy Rose Lee’s house and Carole King.”

“So Carole King came over to my house and she said that there had been a divorce, that was really ugly, and there was a ghost in the house. And I was, like, yeah, whatever. But other people who would stay there with me, like friends of mine, said they felt an encounter with a woman who was sitting on the edge of the bed,” Courteney continued.

“And I was, like, yeah, whatever,” adding that she and Carole ended up doing a seance together.

The actress continued, “I was at the house one day not being a believer. The doorbell rang. It was a UPS guy, or something, and I opened the door and he said, ‘Do you know this house is haunted?’ And I go, ‘Yeah, why? Why do you think that?’ And he goes, ‘Because there is someone standing behind you.’ And I was like, ‘Let’s sell.’”

Jimmy joked, “What a terrible, terrible UPS guy. Why would you say that to somebody?”

Courteney said she ultimately couldn’t look at the house the same after that, so she listed it. “I couldn’t sleep there alone ever again,” she said.
