Ellen DeGeneres might come across as warm and welcoming on her talk show, but that doesn't mean she wants uninvited "guests" traipsing about on her property. A woman who was arrested last week outside Ellen's Beverly Hills home that she shares with wife Portia de Rossi was charged today with misdemeanor trespassing.

If convicted, 49-year-old Karen Grace Sjoden could face $1,000 fine and six months in jail, reports TMZ. She didn't enter the home, but was found by the couple's 24-hour security team and then handed over to Beverly Hills police, who were just happy to have something to do.
