    Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi had certainly grown accustomed to living lavishly in their compound that features four structures (totaling 15,000 square feet of interior living space), a hidden underground fitness center and a swimming pool. But, after news broke yesterday that "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest scooped up the A-list couple's luxe estate, the next question on everyone's minds was: where would Ellen and Portia live?

    According to the Los Angeles Times, Ellen and Portia anticipated in April that their compound would sell and decided to scoop up a Hal Levitt-designed midcentury mansion to satisfy all of their luxury needs. Their new Beverly Hills crib measures 8,500 square feet and boasts a black-and-stainless-steel kitchen, walls of glass, a swimming pool, multiple fireplace, four bedrooms and six baths. While no home is as large and in charge as Ellen and Portia's (now Ryan Seacrest-owned) compound, this Hal Levitt-designed pad certainly isn't too shabby.

    And, with so much buying, selling, and flipping, don't forget that Ryan Seacrest's Hollywood home is still on the market for $11.985 million.
