Ellen & Portia de Rossi

Downsizing & Out

in Beverly Hills

After selling their old mega-compound to Ryan Seacrest for $49 million, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are really downsizing ... into a cozy $18 million mid-century modern Beverly Hills estate.

In their new "modest" digs, Ellen & Portia will have to find a way to make due with 8,500 square feet featuring 4 bedrooms, 6 baths, a commercial kitchen, several patios and only one rectilinear swimming pool, according to The Real Estalker.

While their new crib is still ridiculously awesome -- the place has a tree in the middle of the living room --  the ladies will be packed in like A-list sardines compared to the 9,200 square foot mansion, 3 guest houses and 2.7 acres they just sold to the "American Idol" host.

Times are tough for everyone in this economy ... except Ryan Seacrest.

These idiots do not need these giant mansions. Like so many of them buy big homes in different parts of the country but never use them.

The only reason a celebrity should buy a mansion like that is to flip it in a few years.

Downsizing is a great idea in this economy. My wife and I recently downsized as well. We went from a triple wide manufactured home to a single wide manufactured home. That saves us $485 dollars a month!

I'm devastated. How can they be expected to live in such inhumane conditions?

Unbelievable to go from that dream compound with complete privacy, underground huge garage and everything, pool(s) ... to this. Why the hell would anyone do this. It is not financial, they keep buying houses all the time, still have like 4 or 5, plus if they just rented the two houses down the street in their compound they would still have privacy(since they are up at the end) and cover all the expenses plus extra. Wow. Make absolutely zero sense.
