Creature comforts and creature sightings are the hallmarks of a sophisticated modern home that sits atop a bluff a stone's throw from the sea along a quiet stretch of the Malibu coast. The one-story home was designed by Santa Barbara architect Barry Berkus as the showcase property for MariSol Malibu, an 80-acre, 17-lot development just past the Ventura County line on land that was once part of Rancho Malibu. Pelicans, dolphins and the occasional gray whale are visible in the vast expanse of ocean that lies just beyond Pacific Coast Highway while deer, bobcats and the rare mountain lion wander down from the hills above.

Moving to contain a public relations mess, Wells Fargo & Co. fired a top executive accused of using a bank-owned Malibu beach house to entertain her family and friends. Cheronda Guyton, a senior vice president responsible for commercial foreclosed properties, broke company rules barring personal use of bank property, Wells Fargo said in a statement Monday. The Times reported last week that Guyton had been spotted by neighbors spending time at the Malibu Colony home with her family this summer.

Just how much does it cost to be Britney Spears? A little less than $1 million a month, according to an accounting filed in L.A. Superior Court. Lawyers for Spears' father, who has permanent control of her personal affairs, submitted the document Friday to the judge supervising the conservatorship. The filing explains down to the penny how Jamie Spears and an attorney who helps him oversee her business interests spent more than $10 million on the singer's behalf over the course of 11 months last year.

WE'RE ON OUR porch, the baby and I, planning our escape. We've had it with cooking shows and family time. Last night, an argument over sleepovers woke bald eagles in tall trees 100 miles up the coast. When no one's looking, the baby and I plan on just walking away. "You go first," I tell him. "Me?" he says. "I'll be right behind you," I say. He is 2 now. When I comb his hair, pixie dust falls to the ground around his feet. His life so far is pretty much a fairy tale. Much like mine.

It looks like "Risky Business" minus Tom Cruise. A Malibu couple has left for the summer and, in their absence, their estate has been overrun by a slew of teen-agers and twentysomethings. They've painted the white house a multicolor melange of purple, orange, red and turquoise and turned the tennis court into a parquet floor, complete with movable basketball hoops. The once barren back yard now has an above-ground swimming pool and a sand volleyball court.

Belabored best describes the humor of "The Supporting Cast" by George Furth, and the current production at Westminster Community Theatre plays right into all of its manufactured laughs. The forced feel of this play starts with the premise: A writer summons four friends to her Malibu beach house to read her new novel, which features all of them as thinly disguised characters. When they discover that she has revealed confidences and described them in less than flattering terms, they feel betrayed.
