The Hole thing must go: Courtney Love is shedding the L.A. home she shares with daughter Frances Bean, 8. The rocker-actress purchased the surprisingly sedate French country estate from comic Ellen DeGeneres in 1997 and made several renovations, adding an indoor-outdoor gym and turning a dark bar room into a sunny library. The 4,600-square-foot home sits on two acres at the end of a long driveway. The property, surrounded by a white picket fence, also has a pool and pool house. Love bought a Manhattan condo last fall and is reportedly hunting for a smaller West Coast pad.
