By Laura Vecsey
This Time, Jodie Foster Dumping House
A year after buying a new Beverly Hills spread for $11.75 million, Jodie Foster has listed her Hollywood Hills home at 9219 Flicker Way for $6.399 million.
The home buying and selling caps a few years of rapid change for the 50-year-old Hollywood stalwart, who broke with her longtime companion Cydney Bernard, has seen her two sons reach young adulthood and, most notably, offered a curious defense of celebrity privacy during her Cecile B. DeMille Award acceptance at last year's Golden Globes.
So much for privacy now. Listing photos show that the 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 half-bath home has an attached guest suite, media room and lap pool in the back.
Ellen Ready to Deal Beverly Hills Penthouse
Property titans Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are ready to make another deal. After their recent purchase of a stunning $26.5 million estate in Montecito, the couple appears ready to cast off one of their lesser real estate holdings. They have listed their penthouse condo in the exclusive Somerset building in Beverly Hills for $899,000. DeGeneres bought the 200 N. Swall Drive unit three years ago for $835,000 - small potatoes after the couple sold one of their L.A. area homes last year for $49 million.

Leona Lewis Drops a Few C-Notes To Get Home Sold
British songstress Leona Lewis has finally gotten a sale on her West Hollywood Hills house. After listing the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom, nearly 4,000-square-foot home for $2.5 million, the chart-topping singer took just over $2 million for the Nichols Canyon estate.
