A Whole New Cereal World
Cereal is a staple in any household. It’s convenient, it’s delicious, and there are so many types that you can always have something new and exciting. However, some varieties are significantly healthier than others.
While marshmallow cereals are delicious, this kid is missing out on a whole world of tasty, unhealthy cereals! What about Cocoa Puffs, Frosted Flakes, and Fruity Pebbles? There’s a whole world out there, kid!
Something Smells Bad
As humans, we’re very sensitive to smells, especially things that we think smell bad. This is evolutionary, as bad smells often help us avoid things that are dangerous or could make us sick. However, sometimes people just don’t like the way something smells.
Her sons’ reactions to her cooking make us question whether they just grew up in a funny, sarcastic household where it’s normal to joke that way — or if the mom is actually a bad cook in denial. Being a parent doesn’t make your food good!
No One Likes the Crusts
There are a lot of eating habits that spark debate. Do you keep bread crusts or cut them off? Do you eat the pizza crust or not? Do you cut the sandwich in squares or in triangles?
We can’t blame this kid for never eating the crust. It’s the worst part of the bread, even if it’s supposedly the most nutritious. And dad shouldn’t be complaining, as he gets a lunch he doesn’t have to prepare!
Waffles or Pancakes
Speaking of food debates, the world may never know which is superior — the waffle or the pancake. They’re both traditional American breakfast foods that can be savory or sweet, meaning they make a very versatile dish.
While both good, waffles and pancakes are not the same! Waffles are crispy and have perfect little pits for syrup and other toppings. Pancakes are soft and fluffy. So, it’s completely understandable if someone doesn’t like both.
School Lunch Struggles
Lunchtime as a school-aged child is the most exciting time of day apart from recess. It means a break from boring schoolwork, chatting to your friends, and discovering what’s for lunch that day. If you bring a packed lunch to school, it’s even more exciting.
Unfortunately, a homemade lunch doesn’t mean it’s something the kid will end up eating. Whether they’re picky eaters, lack the appetite, or just don’t want it, a lot of poor lunchbox food goes to waste each day.
No Desserts Here
Some kids really love dessert, to the point that it borders on obsession. They will try absolutely anything to convince their parents to give them chocolate, ice cream, or cupcakes — you name it, they probably want it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
While the use of the word terrorist may be a bit far-fetched here, we have to side with dad. There’s no way any parent wants to encourage their child to engage in harmful behavior all for a bit of dessert.
Kids in Restaurants Get Rowdy
We’ve all been there — just trying to enjoy a nice meal out at a lovely restaurant when suddenly, there’s a child screaming, knocking over their drink, or running around and almost tripping over the servers.
This parent is so right. Children have incredibly short attention spans, and sitting at a restaurant for what feels like an eternity to them is boring. Naturally, they start looking into making a little mischief, and the poor parents have to try and stop it before it starts.
Where’s That Stain From?
Stains are frustrating. Stains in clothing can be really difficult to get out, depending on what caused the stain. Stains in furniture can be almost impossible. So grubby little hands around furniture are terrifying.
Since children seem to love to wipe their hands on the sofa instead of their napkins, why not create some sofa-shaped napkins? This is brilliant problem-solving on this dad’s part. Pass over that GoFundMe link and we’ll contribute!
Close That Fridge Door
Refrigerators are energy suckers, so there’s nothing worse than a family member who loves to stand in the open fridge door staring at the contents inside, which are almost always disappointing. But sometimes, the culprit is too adorable to reprimand.
To be fair, chocolate milk does smell delicious. Adults would probably do the same thing if they were still “allowed” to drink chocolate milk and weren’t worried about it going bad from being out of the fridge too long.
There are few things more exciting than getting a Happy Meal from McDonald’s as a kid. Between the fries, the dipping sauces, the toy, and the simple pleasure of opening up the box, it’s hard to choose which is the best part.
Imagine the disappointment when you’re expecting some delicious, highly processed chicken nuggets and discover a wimpy little burger in their place. The two are in no way comparable, and the toddler definitely had a right to be upset.
Tiny Straws Are a Pain
Juice boxes are the best. They’re so much more exciting than boring old water. Sure, they’ve got a ridiculously high sugar content, but we can all keep on pretending they’re healthy because they’re fruit-flavored.
Capri Sun is a huge name in the juice box game, so much so that there are now adult versions of the classic juice pouch. But, they are notorious for the difficulty of getting the straw in on the first try, so this mom’s comparison is a good one.
Rice Krispies Treat Surprise
If you’ve never tried a Rice Krispies treat, you’re missing out. They’re made with Kellog’s Rice Krispies cereal and marshmallows, making them stick together in the most delicious way.
We have to admit — we would be just as excited to find a Rice Krispies treat, even if it were on the floor. Who’s to say that it wasn’t still in the wrapper? That kid hit the jackpot, and we all know it.
Grocery Shopping Lists
A lot of people don’t bother to make grocery lists. They just show up to the store, ready to browse the aisle and grab 50 things that they don’t really need to fill up their fridge and pantry.
Parents shopping with children usually do have a list, as they need to get in and out as quickly as possible precisely for these reasons. Kids and grocery stores do not mix well… unless you’re willing to bribe them.
An Unconventional Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gets the metabolism going and gives us the energy we need to start the day off on a good foot. And while we should eat something healthy for this meal, that isn’t always the case.
In every culture, different foods are meant to be eaten at certain times of the day, so perhaps there’s a place in which eating Flaming Hot Doritos for breakfast is normal. Unlikely, but this mom can hang onto that hope.
Kids Don’t Understand Hunger
Many people don’t seem to understand that not everyone is hungry at the same time. Some people only need to eat two or three times, whereas others snack periodically throughout the day. This especially rings true for children.
Was he not hungry, or was it simply that he didn’t want what mom made? The answer is most likely the latter. We hate to break it to you, kid — but you can’t live off of fruit snacks and mini donuts forever.
A Solid Lunch
While fruit is fantastic and essential to health, it isn’t exactly a meal. A meal needs several components, and it needs to be large enough to be filling and nutritious. Someone try telling that to this kid, though.
Leaves are an interesting choice. Perhaps the kid is thinking of lettuce and spinach, and is one of the rare children who actually enjoy eating leafy greens. Mom should definitely take advantage while she can.
A Plethora of Bathroom Visits
There’s nothing more annoying than people who need to use the bathroom all the time. If it’s because they’re well-hydrated, then that’s great for them, but it’s annoying for those who are out and about with them.
Children are huge culprits of excessive bathroom trips, thanks to their tiny bladders and poor self-control. They seem great at timing bathroom trips for the worst possible moment, too, like right when the food has arrived. Hope their parents enjoy cold food!
Never Stop Complaining
Kids love to complain. It’s a fact of life. Maybe it has to do with them being at a developmental stage of learning to be independent and pushing boundaries, or maybe it’s just them being annoying, but dinner time is a big trigger.
Statistics say that 98% of what parents cook is inherently disgusting and toxic and an attempt to traumatize their child. At least, that’s what statistics would say if it were up to kids. Will they ever be happy?
Real Cheese Hater
Did you know that many powdered cheeses may not even contain any real cheese at all? They’re typically used as toppings on things like popcorn but are also a staple of boxed mac and cheese.
While real cheese is obviously superior, when a child is used to a specific taste, it can be hard for them to cope with something different. Plus boxed mac and cheese is just really good. We feel your pain, kid.
Inside a Jelly Jar
Donuts come in so many varieties that it’s hard to keep track. Jelly-filled, glazed, chocolate-covered, and donut holes are just a few of the options. Jelly-filled donuts are moist and tasty, but messy.
A child plus a jelly-filled donut is a recipe for disaster. Frankly, it was almost irresponsible for this parent to even allow a jelly-filled donut near a child without thinking of the consequences. Time to break out the cleaning products!
Eat the Whole Thing
Getting children to eat all of their dinner can be difficult. Whether they aren’t hungry or they’re complaining about the contents, especially if there are vegetables present, parents can end up really frustrated. This is worse when they twist what you say.
Well, she did say eat the whole thing, which is what her kid did! They just didn’t do it in the way she expected. Mom needs to be more specific next time if she expects better results.
Eat, Sleep, Poop
Babies can be boiled down to three things — eat, sleep, poop, and repeat. Sure, they start learning to walk and speak, but their desires almost always come back to those three basic needs. This goes for both animal babies and human babies, minus the talking for animals.
The words that adults pretend their babies are saying are probably much more interesting than anything they’re actually trying to say. So, let’s all agree to just carry on with our pretend conversations with them.
Lacking in Manners
The plus side of fast-food and restaurants is that they can be a fun, special treat and give parents a break from cooking all of the time. The downside is that kids often come to expect chicken nuggets and fries for every meal.
Mom’s food is probably delicious, but because it’s not brown and processed and in a square shape, her kids don’t want it. Hopefully, she doesn’t take it personally, as we can guarantee that every parent has been there.
Everyone Needs a Break
Sometimes, we have a day that’s so bad, we just want to collapse onto the sofa and not think about anything. Others cope by opening up a bottle of something and flipping on their favorite show. For those with kids, these days can be particularly awful.
You’re not a bad parent for needing a break, Juicebox Hero. Everyone has bad days and needs a break and a glass of something strong. As long as you’re caring for your kid the best you can, they will be okay.
At Least They Were Polite
Have you heard of active listening? It’s the practice of making a conscious effort to listen to and respond to what someone is saying to you. Many adults are horrible at this, and if they can’t figure it out, then of course the children can’t either.
The kids probably saw their mom making sandwiches and completely ignored what her question actually was. The good news is that at least they were polite and more than willing to eat a sandwich.
Filthy Family Vehicles
There’s no denying that children are messy. They drop crumbs everywhere, they get stains on their clothes, and they leave a disaster trail in their wake no matter where they go. So naturally, this chaos extends to car trips.
Kids are hungry often and need snacks, making Goldfish and Cheerios an easy option that’s at least safer than something containing liquid or jelly. Yet they still manage to get crumbs everywhere. At least the mess is easily remedied with a vacuum — that is, if the parents can find the time.
Snack Time Sounds Better
Tantrums are frustrating, especially when they’re for what adults deem silly reasons. And many tantrums in households stem from meal times, particularly dinner. As a parent simply trying to feed your child, it can be tough.
Perhaps children hate meal times because they know they usually come with foods they don’t want, like vegetables. Snack time, on the other hand, is often fun things like fruit snacks or Goldfish. Which one would you prefer?
Children Are Bad at Pouring
Children are not good at pouring things. It stems from a combination of their developing bodies and motor skills, and often simply not paying attention to what they’re doing and slowing down enough to do it properly.
As a parent, every time you watch your child pour something is a heartstopping moment of that gallon of milk potentially being wasted on the floor. It’s a struggle between wanting them to learn how to pour and not wanting to go back to the store.
Wasted Water Bottles
Plastic water bottles and Coca-Cola bottles have got to be one of the top plastic polluters on the planet. Some people won’t drink water unless it’s from a plastic bottle, but they don’t realize how much plastic they’re throwing away every day.
Sure — he could probably survive, but those water bottles will be nasty from sitting in a hot car, and those Goldfish will be super stale! After three years of stale Goldfish, he’d probably never want to see another one ever again.
Not an Early Bird
Some people are naturally early birds, and others are night owls. Neither is better than the other, but they do tend to lead to very different lifestyles. An exhausted parent most probably falls into the night owl category, but children are almost always early risers.
What a brilliant idea. Kids already love eating food off of the floor, so why not throw out some Cheerios and squeeze in a little more sleep while your kid enjoys the challenge of finding all of the cereal pieces? Just make sure you keep those floors extra clean.
Moms Always Do it All
Moms are superheroes. Whether it’s by choice or due to the fact society expects moms to be the main caregivers, they often take on a significant majority of day-to-day parenting duties, including snack and meal times.
It sounds like this kid just knew mom would make the better snack, as she’s probably the one who always does it. Mom makes ants on a log or perfect apple slices, while dad probably throws string cheese at them and tells them to have at it.
It’s All in the Syrup
One of the best parts of eating waffles and pancakes is the maple syrup. It’s particularly exciting with waffles, because thanks to the shape of the waffles, they contain perfect little square pits for the syrup to pool in.
As great as the syrup pools are, who needs waffles when you could just drink maple syrup straight out of a glass? This kid has got it all figured out, but unfortunately, mom probably told them heck no. How disappointing.
Changing Taste Buds
As we get older, our taste buds change, becoming less sensitive and less capable of perceiving different flavors. Maybe this is why children are so picky. After all, they have a plethora of super-sensitive, well-functioning taste buds.
Why do kids do this? While tastes do change, it definitely doesn’t happen overnight. The real question here, though, is if this child is severely lacking in certain vitamins thanks to a diet of pure cheese for a year.
Future Chef in the Making
One talent that chefs have is a knack for combining flavors perfectly, be it the spices or the foods themselves. Often they put together ingredients that make us scratch our heads but ultimately complement each other extremely well.
We’re not so sure that cold pizza and candy corn are one of those genius combinations. To a three-year-old, it’s two tasty foods in one, which is a win in and of itself. But, just because they’re great individually doesn’t mean they work together.
Just Dip it in Ketchup
Cheese and ketchup are the pinnacles of an adolescent diet, with fruit snacks earning an honorary mention. No one knows what it is about that red, sugary liquid goodness that people love so much, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a child who doesn’t love it.
These statistics should be the other way around, as kids will find a way to dip just about anything in ketchup. Melted cheese isn’t quite as versatile, but it’s a good way to make food more kid-friendly as well.
We’re Finally Alone
As a parent, moments of quiet and alone time are few and far between. Most can’t even go to the bathroom without a child or pet following them in or interrupting them mid-shower or during a number two.
What started as a sweet, appreciative, intimate moment was then marred by a needy kid. Hopefully, the parents had a good laugh, and the child got the help they needed. And let’s just assume, it was simply that they were too young to clean themselves well on their own.
Candy for Breakfast
If children are anything, it’s enthusiastic. They see the world through young, fresh lenses… unjaded by life-like adults. In addition to being enthusiastic, they’re also extremely persistent, wearing their parents down day by day until they give in.
This kid’s mistake is asking for candy for breakfast instead of for dinner. At breakfast time, mom is fresh, ready to tackle a new day. At dinner time, however, she’ll be worn out from the day and more pliable. It’s all about timing, kid!
The World Needs More Marshmallows
As an American, sweet potato casserole is a staple of most Thanksgiving dinners. It’s a dessert, and there are many methods to make it, but a common one is including toasted marshmallows on top.
If there’s one thing full of sugar and bound to be adored by children, it’s marshmallows, and they do go very well with sweet potatoes. Perhaps more foods could be complemented by the sweet gooey candy clouds, so the kid may be onto something here.
Triangles Are Superior
One can’t use the internet these days without having come across some food debate or another. In this case, the debate is whether cutting your sandwich into squares or triangles is better. It may seem subjective, but it isn’t.
Triangle sandwiches are obviously superior. Triangles are more exciting than squares. This four-year-old’s reaction to their square sandwich was completely reasonable. Mom definitely won’t be making that mistake again.
Secret Snack Stashes
The worst part of sharing a house with children is that any time there’s a pantry full of snack foods, they’ll disappear so quickly that the parents start to question whether they actually went grocery shopping the day before.
Thanks to this, many parents have secret snack stashes, and they hide while eating them for fear of being forced to share with the same children who wiped out all of the other snacks. Parents deserve snacks, too.
The Mysterious Oreo Filling
Oreos are a well-beloved cookie. There’s just something about spinning the cookie apart to lick away the filling, or dipping it in milk until it gets just the tiniest bit soggy, that can’t be beaten by inferior cookies.
Mom should have known that the husband, four-year-old, and seven-year-old would band together and vow silence on the matter. Mom’s disappointment likely isn’t even the stain, but the fact that Oreo filling was wasted on the couch.
Love/Hate Relationship With Bananas
Imagine being a parent who desperately wants to make sure your kids are well-fed and eat a good balance of nutritious fruits and vegetables. So, whenever your child requests a piece of fruit as a snack, you’re over the moon.
And then the worst happens — your child decides on a whim they no longer like that fruit. Now, you’re stuck eating a banana you didn’t want so that it doesn’t end up in the trash can, even though it’s perfectly good.
Attention to Detail
Attention spans and focus are interesting things. The longer you spend on this Earth, the more you realize that they’re strongly influenced by a person’s interest in the task at hand, especially when it comes to children.
Kids can focus for extraordinary periods of time when it comes to picking ingredients that they decide they don’t like out of their food. Her daughter probably also spends precious minutes picking things off of her pizza.
Children Are Like Animals
Proper etiquette when eating meals is a learned behavior, so for obvious reasons, most children are severely lacking when it comes to table manners. To be fair, many adults are as well, but that’s another conversation.
Spaghetti is a weird food, as everyone eats it differently. There are the fork twirlers, the slurpers, and the people who cut it up into smaller pieces to make it more manageable. The imagery of a kid eating spaghetti like a horse eats hay is hilarious and very accurate.
Case of the Bacon Snatcher
Children often show very little interest in the food on their own plates. No one understands exactly why this happens, but they’re always much more interested in the cookie their sibling has, or the sandwich on their parent’s plate.
As long as parents are willing to delay their own meal time, putting their child’s food on their own plate is a genius way of getting them to eat everything. Otherwise, their bacon and French fries will constantly be snatched by their kids.
Have you ever wondered what celebrity homes look like? Here’s your chance to take a sneak peek at some of the largest mansions in Hollywood and surrounding areas. So, grab your popcorn and preferably healthy snacks, and enjoy!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
The recently divorced couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are both known to be totally extra, so it’s no surprise that they spent $20 million on this stunning mansion in Hidden Hills, California. As if the place wasn’t big enough already, they also purchased the neighboring house, making it 4.5 acres big!
This eccentric Beverly Hills mansion once belonged to Gwen Stefani and her now ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. The 7-bedroom mansion was put on the market after their split in 2015. Selling the mansion was a pain, but they managed to sell it for $21.65 million in 2019.
It’s easy to see why it was stuck on the market for such a long time. The kitchen looks like something that came out of a Tim Burton movie. What’s with the zebra stripes? As eclectic as the style is, it’s definitely an acquired taste.
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello
Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara and True Blood’s Joe Manganiello have been together since 2014. Their combined net worth of about $200 million allowed them to purchase Barry Bonds’ old house.
Located in Beverly Hills, California, baseball legend Barry Bonds’ former house was priced at $26 million. The Mediterranean vibe of the mansion, combined with its limestone columns, travertine floors, murals, 30-foot ceilings, and crystal chandeliers make the property look like a dream.
The King of Queens’ pristine estate is located in Delray Beach, Florida. The 18,906-square-foot home is priced at $14 million. It has a summer kitchen, an elevator, and even a wine cellar located in the three-story main house.
Meaning there’s also a guest house which sounds pretty lovely. The house follows a minimalistic style, which to some can come across a bit on the bland side. But on the plus side, it also has direct access to the beach.
Former owners of this lovely home, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, sold their estate to Dr. Dre for 40$ million in 2013. Since Dr. Dre has little to no media presence, there are few pictures of the interior.
However, after purchasing this beauty in Brentwood, California, Dr. Dre went to work on making a huge underground 10,000-square-foot music studio. This would bring the total square footage of the home to over 28,000. As if the house wasn’t already big enough.
It seems like Taylor Swift is something of a house collector. The singer has as many as eight homes, including a number of luxurious New York City penthouses, three houses in sunny Los Angeles, an estate and a condo located in Tennessee, and this beautiful beach house in Rhode Island.
Coincidentally, this beach house just happens to be the place where Taylor also hosts all her Fourth of July parties. We’re still patiently waiting for our invite!
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey can pretty much afford to buy whatever she wants with her estimated net worth of $2.7 billion. In 2001, Oprah purchased this 42 acres of property in Montecito, California.
She then built a 23,000-square-foot mansion with a massive fountain, 10 fireplaces, a huge motor court, a movie theatre, a library, and even a wine cellar. The house is breathtaking, that’s for sure. Oprah even has her own garden where she harvests vegetables!
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
This 25,000-square-foot compound, situated in Calabasas, California is priced at $42 million. It was specifically built for Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. As far as pictures go, the house has been photographed only once in 2011, and that was for Architectural Digest.
Another interesting fact about the estate is that every single thing is handmade. The house was created with a certain concept in mind, so there are no hard edges anywhere.
Beyoncé and Jay Z
Beyoncé and Jay-Z became the lucky owners of this massive mansion in the Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, for the price of $88 million. Their combined net worth is $1.9 billion, meaning the price equals less than a fraction of their net worth.
The house is constructed with six structures with windows made out of bulletproof glass. It also has three pools, and a steel and limestone garage with enough room for 15 cars. Must be nice.
This property in Windermere, Florida has been Shaq’s home since his rookie years in the NBA. The entire house has been redesigned into Shaq’s very own slice of heaven, featuring the Shaq Center basketball court and two custom-made aquariums.
Surprisingly, Shaq’s been trying to sell it for a while, but he just can’t seem to find a buyer. Now that’s not much of a surprise, considering there are Superman logos everywhere.
Known as the second-largest city in Ventura County, Thousand Oaks is also the seventh-richest city in the United States. It’s also home to celebrities like Britney Spears. In 2016, the singer decided to sell her stunning mansion and listed it for $7.9 million.
But before she made the decision to move on, Britney thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of the mansion’s five bedrooms, game room, movie theater, infinity pool, and her chandeliered dressing room.
Angelia Jolie and Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt used this luxurious $55 million mansion in Long Island as their vacation home before the split. The extravagant waterfront mansion has a whopping 25 bedrooms in the main house, meaning there’s also a guest house.
Not one, but two. The house also has a log cabin and a beach cabana. So, naturally, there’s a private beach, and a pier large enough for a yacht or two.
Back when Jennifer Lopez was still married to Marc Anthony, she purchased this Hidden Hills mansion. Aside from having nine bedrooms, the house also has some fun extras, such as a card game area, a professional bar, a large dance studio, a library, a recording studio, and even a 20-seat theater.
Sounds dreamy, right? But it obviously wasn’t dreamy enough – J.Lo listed it for $12.5 million in 2017. Now, she’s on to even bigger and better things!
Former owner of this gorgeous property, Mike Tyson, sold it to none other 50 Cent. The rapper reportedly cashed out between $4.1-4.5 million for this 51,000-square-foot estate situated in white-collar Farmington, Connecticut in 2004. Another $6-$10 million was spent on both renovations and additions.
The house features 52 rooms, including an indoor pool, game room, movie theater, gym, nightclub, and recording studio, making it stick out like a sore thumb in old money New England. In fact, in 2019 the rapper made a loss by selling the property for $2.9 million.
One of our favorite twins, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Olivier Sarkozy, her fiancé, are currently going through nasty divorce. But, before we harp on their split, let’s admire their beautiful $13.5 million townhouse in New York City. The home pretty much puts every other New York apartment to shame.
It’s very spacy and open, but then again of course it would be with 22-foot ceilings. Olsen’s place also features seven fireplaces, an artist’s studio, an elevator, and, wait for it ― a ballroom.
This beauty is located in the very same exclusive gated community of Beverly Hills where celebrities like Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicole Riche, and Cameron Diaz live.
Adele joined this exclusive Beverly Hills community in 2016 when she purchased the estate for the price of $9.5 million. The mansion includes four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a treehouse, and even an outdoor train set. And of course, it has a pool.
Gigi and Bella Hadid
The supermodel sister duo’s childhood home just so happens to be a breathtaking mansion located in Malibu. In 2015, their mother, Yolanda Hadid, sold it for $19.45 million. The mansion has nine bathrooms and six bedrooms.
It also extends over 3 floors, one of which is a subterranean level with a screening room, a game room with a wet bar, a recording studio, a massage room, and a sauna. Basically, a hotel in the shape of a home.
Since we already mentioned the Hadids, Bella and Gigi’s father, Mohamed Hadid, is actually a real estate tycoon. It’s only natural that he lives in one of the most luxurious estates, just check out his $85 million mansion in Bel Air.
The home has 10 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, an elevator, a formal outdoor bath, and a Turkish hammam, which is something similar to a communal bath area. There’s also a swan pond and eight rose gardens. Mohamed lives large, for sure.
Season one American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson also scored big on this $8.75 million house in Henderson, Tennessee. The lakefront home has its very own volleyball court, a personal deep water dock, and even a cowboy bar, horse saddle barstools, and more.
Clarkson and her husband sold the estate in 2017. Is it kind of silly to hope that whoever bought it at least kept the cowboy bar intact? We’re just so curious.
This stunning Hollywood Hills home was bought by none other than the Queen of Barbados, Rihanna. RiRi splurged $6.8 million on the home, and it’s more than worth it. It has eight-and-a-half bathrooms and six bedrooms. And here’s the good news…
Right now, the celebrity is looking to rent the place to somebody very lucky. That is of course, provided that the lucky someone just happens to be willing to pay $35,000 each month.
The star of High School Musical, Vanessa Hudgens, purchased this Studio City mansion in California about 11 years ago. Recently, she listed it for $3.15 million. The house is inspired by a Mediterranean style, and it consists of six bedrooms and a home theater.
Another addition to Hudgens’ house is a panic room. While it might be odd, it seems to be sort of a rich-person amenity that’s getting quite popular. Each to their own, we guess!
Just by looking at it, we can tell that Selena Gomez’s mansion in Fort Worth is lovely. But that’s not the only reason why we like it so much. The mansion also has a saltwater pool, with a built-in waterslide. Talk about a fun house!
How cool is that? To top things off, the house also includes five bedrooms, a golfing green, a movie theater, and there’s even a tennis court. This all makes us wonder why Selena put it up for sale in 2018.
This beauty is situated on Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, the most populous city in the sunny state of Arizona. In 2016, it was put on the market by Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz for $3.85 million.
Apparently, the house is so dreamy that the couple themselves dubbed it ‘Dreamland.’ Well, obviously it’s not dreamy enough since they decided not to hang onto it. But let’s be real, it is quite impressive.
This West Hollywood mansion was previously owned by the celebrity power couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. So, it was only a matter of time before somebody else snatched it up. Kendall Jenner purchased the said estate for the price of $6.5 million in 2016.
The house really is quite lovely, featuring five bathrooms and six bedrooms. It even has a pool, so it’s safe to say it’s pretty much Hollywood-approved. Don’t you agree?
Kendall Jenner’s sister, Kylie Jenner, bought this $36 million dollar “resort compound” in April of 2020 in Holmby Hills. The 15,350-square-foot property is reportedly the largest one in her real estate portfolio.
Kylie reportedly spent her lockdown here with her daughter Stormi and baby daddy Travis Scott. This mega-mansion seems like the perfect fit for a 22-year-old billionaire. Don’t you think?
Rob Lowe probably isn’t the first person that comes to mind when we think of celebrities who own and purchase extravagant properties. But when you think about it, Lowe’s shows have been on air every year since 1999.
Anyways, Rob and his wife Sheryl purchased this 10,000-plus-square-foot beauty in 2005 for $7.5 million. Rob raised his kids here in Montecito, California, but once they got older, he sold the house for $45.5 million in 2020. Talk about a profit!
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
Recently married couple Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin packed their bags and moved into this sweet $9 million Beverly Hills mansion. They made the mansion homey by tweaking a few things to their liking, such as adding in an arcade game room.
There’s also a whole bunch of skateboards and lots of strange artwork hanging on the walls, as well as a huge photograph of Hailey and Biebs making out. If the house is a representation of their beloved personalities, it’s bound to be stunning!
Usher’s villa in Sunset Strip, California is all kinds of bold. When we say bold, we mean bold. It’s full of dark rich tones, with pops of color to keep things fresh and break up the monotony.
The villa also sits on a private road near Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood. The R&B singer and his wife sold the villa in 2018. The asking price for their humble abode was $4.2 million.
The Pacific Palisades in Los Angeles holds the reputation of being one of the most expensive areas and it’s mostly known for being home to lots of Hollywood celebrities throughout history. It also happens to be where Jennifer Garner’s $13.86 million mansion is.
The traditional mansion consists of six bedrooms, and it has three floors. There’s also a movie theater, a game room, a climate-controlled wine cellar, and even a special room designated for wine tasting. Jen must love her vino!
When it comes to buying houses, one of the most common concerns for celebrities is privacy. This is why Emma Stone’s home is so great. The mansion sits on a little-known lane behind a high wall. This makes it practically invisible for peeping toms and paparazzi.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to make the actress stay, as she listed the mansion for $3.899 million. Quite a shame since the house really is neat.
Ellen DeGeneres is making a lot of changes this year. She’s finishing up with her show and she and Portia DeRossi recently listed their mansion in Beverly Hills for $33.7 million. That’s certainly a lot. Some of us may be wondering what could be worth all that money.
Well, the home features five bedrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s also a personal library, a game room, a bar, a home gym, and even a music room.
Lil Wayne’s mansion in Miami Beach is another well-deserved addition to the list of celebrity mansions with oddball features. Said features include a recording studio, a custom-built skate park on the roof, and an indoor shark pool.
Yes, a shark pool. Whether or not Lil Wayne actually had any sharks in his home remains a mystery. What we do know is that he sold the property for $10 million in 2017.
In case you couldn’t tell, Drake is a bit obsessed with huge residential pools. In fact, he bought this place specifically because of this insane residential pool situation. This $7.7 million Hidden Hills mansion was also dubbed the YOLO Estate.
There are even signs saying Yolo Estate all around the property. Unfortunately, the rapper had to stop putting them up since they kept on being stolen. You only live once, right?
