    No idea. I don’t watch soap operas.

  2. Sue says:

    OH, that’s a toss up between Nora Walker’s home on Brother’s and Sister’s and the Braverman household!

    The only thing I can think of is Carlos & Gaby’s house on Desperate Housewives. Because they are rich, they got to have a nice house, right?

    How about the West Wing?

  5. Joy says:

    I also love the house on Revenge. Not the huge mansion but the huge cottage like one the young girl lives in. I love that wrap around porch.

    I’ll take the house Paula Deen uses in her Food Network series. Here it is. 🙂

  7. Laura says:

    The house that Lucy and Ricky moved into when they moved out of the apartment in “I Love Lucy”. That big old farmhouse. The one where they chased the chickens through the place, and built the stone fireplace outside.

    • Joy says:

      AWE….I love this too.

    • Nikki says:

      How come I do not remember this?!

    • Joy says:

      I’m not sure Nikki but didn’t they make a few movies and didn’t they use this house for those?? Laura??

        They were the later episodes, after Little Ricky was born. Lucy and Ricky went on a weekend to “the country” (I think to Connecticut), and Lucy fell in love with this little town they went through, and particularly a house that they toured on a whim. Well, when they returned, she moved all the furniture in the apartment close together, threw dust all over everything, and made a big fuss about how “crowded” and “dirty” NYC was. It was hilarious. Ethel wasn’t in on this one with her… she didn’t want them to move. Well, one thing leads to another, and Ricky tells Ethel in confidence that he bought the house. it was an awesome deal, couldn’t pass it up, and he left $500 earnest money.

        Ethel, being Ethel, can’t keep a secret and tells Lucy. Lucy is all excited for a minute, then realizes that it means leaving Ethel behind. So they hatch a plot to get Ricky’s check back. They recruit Fred (of course), leave Little Ricky with Mrs. Trumbull, and head out to the country dressed as gangsters. They show up at the house, Lucy acting like the ringleader, and ask the current owners (the ones they’re buyingthe house from) if she can show Ethel and Fred the “new hideout”. They’re twirling fake guns around, acting all gangster-y, and the owners are horrified.

        Of course, Ricky shows up, has NO idea what’s going on, and Lucy, Ethel and Fred point to him as the big ringleader. All hell breaks loose, and the owner of the house grabs his shotgun and gets all four of them up against the fireplace. Takes Lucy’s gun (fake) away from her. Ricky says he can ‘splain everything, and takes the husband into the study, leaving his wife to hold the shotgun on Lucy, Ethel and Fred.

        So Ricky and husband go and talk, Ricky to explain his crackpot wife and nutso friends, and succeeds in getting the earnest money back. Lucy, meanwhile, is pointing out all the wonderful things about the house to Ethel, who finally gives her approval of the house and the move. So when Ricky comes back out with the earnest money, Lucy tells him to give it back.

        Eventually, the situation is resolved, they buy the house, which conveniently has a guest house on the property. They decide they need someone to manage the property for them, and help them raise chickens, and they hire Fred, who, in turn hires a manager for the apartment building, and he and Ethel move out to the country to live with Lucy and Ricky. And they all live happily and hysterically together, forever.

        If you have Netflix and really want to see it, it all happens during season 6. Netflix says that there’s a season 7-9, but I don’t recognize any of the shows from that part of the collection.

        I have no idea if the house is in any of the movies – I didn’t see any of those.
