The property was listed with Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency after the 86-year-old talk show host filed a petition to end his seventh marriage in October.

However, this is not the first time the couple, who wed in 1997, filed for divorce. The couple reconciled after a spat in 2010. In 2016, both took to cable TV's Hallmark Channel to dispel rumors of infidelity.

In 2007, the couple bought the lavish home for just under $12 million, according to TMZ. Despite the drop in asking price, the couple netted a profit of over $3 million.
