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.

Yikes. This is REALLY cutting back. Their old home and property was MAGNIFICIENT. I think Ryan got a great deal.

Ellen being a cover girl is like LeBron James being the Playmate of the year.

Wow! 8,500 sqft, our house including the basement is 1200 sqft. Our house sits on 40,000sqft of property with 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, country kitchen, 2 patios and no pool. Our palatial estate was built in 1952, and we paid $150,000 for it 16 yrs ago. Anyone else want to chime on on their palatial abode.

I don't think "rectilinear" is a synonym for "rectangular," but even that's not as bad as "make due."

'Ellen & Portia will have to find a way to make due with 8,500 square feet' - How do you have this job?

The decor is very cold ~ not what I would expect of Ellen's taste. No wood, no warmth, very cold indeed.

just a reminder that having that kind of money buys you nothing that I have the desire for. Happy with what I have achieved in life.
