Jane Fonda Buys $5.45 Million Townhome in Century City

The Oscar-winning star of "Grace & Frankie" recently broke up with music producer Richard Perry, so is selling their Beverly Hills estate to move to Century City. I get downsizing, but I'm still always surprised when Hollywood royalty lives in places that look like my parents' house, albeit much larger! 

BTW: I still think "Grace & Frankie" is a bit of a missed opportunity. All of the men are horrible -- especially the sons, but the ex-husbands are on more so do more damage -- and Lily Tomlin's Frankie is unnecessarily caricaturish. Jane carries the very uneven show and makes it worth watching, but it's hard to believe the scripts have anything to do with people associated with "Friends," which I rarely watched but know from reruns was always sharp and funny.. P.S. Why did they have to make the plot about lube AND follow it up with a vibrator? Subpar material for two legends.

I wanted to love "Grace & Frankie" as soon as I heard about it, but I just don't. I leave it in my Watchlist in case that means anything to Netflix, but haven't watched even the entire first season (which probably means a lot more to Netflix.)

I agree about the men on the show dragging it down, but more Sheen & Waterson than the two boys. I find both of the older men extremely unlikable.

It definitely feels like the writers of Grace & Frankie choose sitcom cliches again and again. I want to like it, and I do watch it, but I don't really believe a single thing any of them says or does.
