Recently, I rounded up all the weirdest and fascinating things I found in celebrity homes — like John Stamos's personal Disney collection and Sheryl Crow's collection of death masks of dead presidents.
While making that list, unsurprisingly, I also came across RIDICULOUSLY expensive objects, from $20K stoves, to $30K faucets and shower heads, to custom-made items that were so expensive pricing wasn't even listed on the website (like this custom couch John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have in their home I tried and failed to figure out the price on).
Still, there were many objects I could find the price for, or get a pretty solid estimate on. So, pop your popcorn and get your judging cap on, and let's get into all the astronomical prices:
2.She also has a $50,000 Mario Bellini-style sofa in her "music and television" room.
6.Paris Hilton famously spent $325,000 on a mini mansion for her dogs.
She wrote on Twitter, "My dogs live in this two-story doggy mansion that has air conditioning, heating, designer furniture, and a chandelier. Loves it."

Is she taking applications to rent???
8.People estimated that Kim Kardashian's custom-stone bathroom sinks alone cost around $30,000.
9.RuPaul has many lavish amenities in his Hollywood Regency-style home, including a disco room and a dazzling drag closet, but it's always the little things that catch my eye, like this custom-made La Cornue range, complete with "you better werk" engraved on its logo. Similar models retail for more than $20,000, so you can only imagine this one's price tag:
10.Sofía Vergara also has a $20K+ La Cornue stove in her home. She said, "I don't know anything, anything at all about it because I do not cook. I don't want to learn to cook."
12.Troye Sivan's mid-century Melbourne home caught the eyes of many for its cozy, relaxing, and refreshing design. And it's not without some high-priced items, like this vintage Percival Lafer sofa which is currently selling on 1stDibs for $23,000.
13.Iman's Catskills home is filled with art and objects loved and adored by David Bowie, including Iman's first wedding anniversary gift to David, a sculpture by Lynn Chadwick (a similar model is estimated to cost between $500K–$700K GBP, or ~$632K–$884K USD), and David's first gift to Iman — a Hermes bag (a similar version is reselling for $70K).
14.Scott Disick has two vintage Jeanneret Kangaroo chairs in a lounge area in his home, which resell for $35,000 a pop on 1stDibs.
15.Serena Williams has an entire art gallery in her Miami home, which is complete with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art, including this chair made of red plush Elmo toys by KAWS x Campana Brothers that's worth almost $300,000.
I think someone needs to check on Elmo next.

16.And lastly, all jokes aside, my personal favorite is that Shaq has appeared on numerous reality shows forking over hundreds of thousands of dollars for truly ridiculous expensive amenities for his homes, like reportedly spending $120,000 for an Egyptian-themed fish tank on Tanked (he also spent an additional $50,000 on a Superman-themed tank), and spending an estimated $400,000 for a custom treehouse on Treehouse Masters.
Of course, celebrities' multi-million dollar homes, yachts, jets, cars, and art collections (or in Gwyneth's case, a personal top-of-the-line luxury spa) top the price tags on most of these items, but I always find it fascinating just how expensive even the little details are. It really puts into perspective just how wealthy these people are.
Anyways, not to end on a bad note, but I low-key (high-key) had to take a break from watching all these home tours because I was getting viscerally sick watching wealth inequality play out right before me. Like, don't get me wrong, I like nice things, too, but knowing $30K is just pennies to these people, or something "sitting around the house," really just b l o w s my mind.
So, if you had $30 extra in celebrity-vision money (aka $30K), what would you spend it on? How would that impact your life? LMK!
