From the LA Times: Actors Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance have lived in their L.A. home for 10 years -- ever since they got married. But the recent parents have different needs these days, so they have listed their home in gated Fremont Place near Hancock Park at close to $6 million.The compound they are selling has a 5,000-square-foot main house, built in 1940, with five bedrooms and six bathrooms. It has such features as a hair salon, a gourmet kitchen, an elegant foyer, a master-bedroom suite and parklike grounds. The couple added a detached 2,500-square-foot building that has an office, gym and guest quarters.The house is rich in original details and is described in the Multiple Listing Service as "a perfect blend of traditional elegance and sophistication."It wasn't size or style that prompted Bassett, 48, and Vance, 47, to list the house but schools. The couple last year became parents of twins through a surrogate. Many children who live in their gated community attend private schools, and the pair would like theirs to attend public schools when the time comes.
Time for...TACIA NOTES!
It is a rarity for celebrity couples to enroll their children into public schools, but that seems to be the 'move' that Courtney and Angela are taking. Surprised? Don't be. I'm sure the couple is wanting their children to have as much of a normal life as possible (well, everyone doesn't have Angela and Courtney as their mom and dad, huh?). Way to go, Angela and Courtney! Oh, and let me just add, did anyone else catch that there is a hair salon in this house?!? :O Don't think I need to comment more on that. Just wish I had an extra 6 mil in my back pocket.

With all that going on with Angela you'd think we'd have something to report. Nope! We're still in "AB News" limbo, but heres something while you wait: a collection of random Angela Bassett photos from this year. Until we're out of limbo: Keep Hounding!

Whats That Got to Do With It?
In Random News...
COURTNEY IS WORKING AGAIN! Ever since the Bassett-Vance twins were born (Jan. 2006) Courtney B. Vance has been on an acting hiatus. Enjoying his time with his wife and new babies, yet keeping his talents from us, the television audience. But the hiatus is at an end with Courtney's newest guest star role in "State of Mind." A new Lifetime show starring Lili Taylor and Theresa Randle.
I just happened to be flipping through channels last Sunday when I see Angela's Courtney all kissed up on a white woman. I thought, "he really must not have seen Waiting to Exhale" but then I realized his kissing another woman means hes working again (because thats got to be acting, Courtney knows what hes got) and that made it all okay.
"State of Mind" is a really intriguing, intelligently funny program and Courtney looks like he'll be a regular. So check Mr. Vance out SUNDAYS at 9PM on LIFETIME and just remember hes acting.
In preparation for Angela's 49th birthday (in ten days) we've got a new poll up on the site for you to vote on. Angela's turning 49 on August 16th, BassettHounds, what should she do to celebrate? GO AND VOTE!
