Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s is a hit reality show that we have been watching for years. Millions of people watching the lives of this family garnered them extreme fame and fortune. Even though they are known for being “famous for being famous,” there is no doubt that the Kardashian/Jenner clan are smart businesswomen.
When Keeping Up with the Kardashians first aired, the youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, was just nine years old. She grew up in front of our eyes, and thanks to her cosmetics line, she was named the world’s youngest self-made millionaire. Although “self-made” is used loosely, you can’t deny her success. With all their money, it’s no secret that the Karjenners love to spoil their kids. You’ll never guess how much they spend on diamond-encrusted pacifiers!
Check out these unnecessarily, expensive things this family owns.
Black Toilet Paper
In a 2015 interview, Kris revealed to the New York Times that one of the bathrooms in her house is covered in black marble. That sounds about right. However, there is an interesting twist. The black marble perfectly matches the black toilet paper she uses. Yes. Black toilet paper is a real thing.
The product first came out back in 2006, and somehow, it made its way to the Kardashian clan. Apparently, black toilet paper is a rich people thing, which is probably why I don’t use it. During a 2013 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, you can hear Kim commenting on the toilet paper saying, “I like to see what I’m wiping.” Me too, Kim.
If you keep up with the Kardashians, it’s hard to miss the scenes filmed at Khloe’s house. That’s because she always has a bunch of hand-stacked two-gallon glass cookie jars in her kitchen at all times. It seems a little unnecessary considering she rarely touches the sweets, but Khloe won’t give them up. It’s a big part of her kitchen display, and it’s mostly for decoration.
Khloe refers to her need for perfectly aligned cookies as “KHLO-C-D.” Khloe taught her fans how to stack cookies on a video she posted on her website. Even her mom Kris started using her trick. Khloe had no problem calling her momager out for stealing her trick, saying, “I taught her everything she knows.”
Kim Kardashian used to have a Swarovski crystal-encrusted refrigerator-freezer combo. Yep, even her fridge was encrusted with crystals. It should be noted that this is a thing of the past. Kim’s taste seems to have calmed down in recent years. With four kids and law school, I don’t think such a fancy refrigerator is on top of her priorities right now.
These days, she is more focused on her family, but Kim used to have a pretty big rhinestone obsession. Aside from her decorated fridge, the reality star once covered her phone with rhinestones. There were so many that she couldn’t even fit her phone in her Range Rover’s charging station.
You know your rich when you’re sitting on gold to do your business. Kim and Kanye reportedly spent $2 million on renovations before selling their Bel Air mansion. After visiting Versailles, the couple was inspired to redesign the entire estate. Let’s just say they didn’t disappoint.
In addition to the glam room, basketball court, gym, and movie theater, Kimye spent a substantial part of their budget on Louis XIV-style gold plated toilets! Four of them! When the renovations for the house were finally completed, the happy couple had a change of heart. They decided not to move into the Bel-Air house and instead moved to a home in Hidden Hills.
Life-Size Wax Statue
If you’re like me, you probably decorate the house with some plants or candles. If you’re more like Kris Jenner, you probably take your home décor to a completely new level. It doesn’t come as a shock that Kris had a hyper-realistic wax figure of herself made. You’d think she would it put in a museum. You know, with the other celebrity wax figures.
Nope. Kris uses her’s as decoration. Kim described the uncanny resemblance on Instagram, “this is her exact hairline. I can’t even tell you how creepy and amazing this is.” Can you imagine having a wax figure of yourself? It seems a tad self-absorbed, but what do I know? If I was Kris Jenner, I’d probably do the same thing.
A Frozen Yogurt Machine
What do you do when you wake up in the middle of the night and want a midnight snack? Probably grab a cookie or a bag of chips, right? Well, if you’re Kim Kardashian, you don’t need any of that stuff. She literally has a frozen yogurt machine in her house.
Kim loves frozen yogurt, so of course, she has a commercial-looking machine. Now she can have yogurt at any time, from the comfort of her own home. That thing is bigger than my entire refrigerator. Her pantry is full of identical glass ice cream holders, Lazy Susans, sprinkles, and every topping, you can imagine putting on a delicious bowl of frozen yogurt.
Kylie Cosmetics-Themed Furniture
Following the extreme success of Kylie Cosmetics, the youngest Karjenner created a furniture line themed around her cosmetics line (which made her a billionaire). I can’t decide if it’s really creative or entirely unnecessary. Either way, I’m not judging. If I had that much money, I would probably make furniture themed around myself or my business.
In her dining room, Kylie has leather chairs in different shades of pink, matching the colors of her lip kits. In her living room, there is a stunning bronze side table with a melted effect, just like the design on the packaging of her Kylie lip kit.
Custom Handbag Room
It doesn’t come as a surprise that Kylie Jenner owns a ton of bags. It got to the point where she had to convert one of her bedrooms to a closet dedicated to her 400 designer bags. Yep, you read that right; Kylie has an estimated 400 bags! The room includes custom white floor-to-ceiling shelves, and mirrored walls.
Her impressive collection features vintage Dior saddle bags, Supreme, lipstick-shaped Judith Leiber clutches, and a nice amount of Louis Vuitton purses. Her favorite shelf is the Birkin Bag row. Her mama Kris has a closet specifically for Birkin Bags. Like mother, like daughter.
North’s Fur Coat
As the firstborn daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, North has been a well-dressed fashionista since she was brought into this world. One of her most unnecessarily extravagant pieces is her infamous fur coat. The only downside about this lavish coat is that she outgrew it, really fast.
Don’t get me wrong; the coat is adorable! But the Kardashian clan doesn’t seem like they are that into hand-me-downs, which is why it seems like a waste. Plus, North’s coat is made from real fur, which is also unnecessary. Either way, she probably has a brand new one by now. It must be nice to be born into Kardashian royalty.
A Bowling Alley
As we mentioned, Kim and Kanye spent a lot of time and money remodeling their $11 million Bel Air mansion. After pouring $2 million into the renovation, and living at Kris’s house for a couple of years, Kimye decided to sell their Bel Air House. Instead, they moved into a different mansion in Hidden Hills.
We already mentioned that the couple’s renovation included gold toilets, but that wasn’t all. They planned to have a bowling alley there too. We now know they gave up on those plans. Instead, they chose a minimalist interior design for their home. However, a bowling alley seems like a pretty good way to entertain four kids.
Stormi’s Shoe Collection
If there is one completely unnecessary thing, it’s investing in a shoe collection – for a baby! If you have children, you know that toddlers’ feet grow at a very rapid pace. However, if I was the youngest billionaire on the planet, my daughter would also get all the shoes she could ever want.
Kylie isn’t shy about Stormi’s massive shoe collection. The two-year-old has a different pair of shoes for every occasion, including vintage kicks from her daddy, Travis Scott. Kylie knows she has a well-dressed baby, and her style is clearly rubbing off on her daughter. We can’t wait to see what her fashion sense will be as she grows up.
Louis Vuitton Music Box
Kris Jenner has ten grandchildren (currently) and spoils every last one of them! Here, we have this charming little Louis Vuitton music box. Kris got this adorable gift for her granddaughter, Chicago. Kim showed off this lavish present on her Instagram story. Did you even know that Louis Vuitton makes music boxes?! I didn’t.
The box features a statue of a little girl and plays the lullaby song, “Rock-A-Bye-Baby.” This incredibly unnecessary, yet lavish music box only costs $3,350! I guess that’s pocket change when you’re name is Kris Jenner. I never had a music box, let alone a Louis Vuitton one.
It’s hard to forget Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’s ridiculous relationship. If not, I’ll help jog your memory. Seventy-two days after their massive lavish wedding, Kim infamously filed for divorce. Before their marriage went south, the newly-weds got to enjoy their wedding registry presents, one being completely overpriced wedding tongs.
The vertigo silver-plated ice tongs cost a whopping $260! I don’t know about you, but that seems like a total waste of money. I mean, do silver-plated tongs really make your less than $1 ice cube taste better? But seriously. Even if I had that amount of money, I don’t think $260 ice tongs would be on my wedding registry.
A Neon Plastic Sign
Okay, I’m not going to lie, if I got the same paycheck as Kylie Jenner, I would probably buy this neon sign, too. Kylie has the luxury neon lights song spelling out “PLASTIC” in her house, and I’m pretty jealous. The sign is in her glam room, which is the perfect place to put it. Unfortunately (for me), this sign costs an astonishing $10,000!
You might be wondering why the sign costs so much money? Is that how much neon costs these days? Well, Kylie’s “PLASTIC” sign is special. It’s a 48×13 art installation by Beau Dunn – a talented Contemporary Mixed Media Artist based in Los Angeles, California. He does amazing work, but I certainly can’t afford him.
Baby Bentley Convertible
As we know, the Kardashians love to spoil their kids, and Khloe is no exception; only the best for her daughter, True. Like many other celebrities, Khloe often gets criticized for it. I mean, buying a fancy car for a 16-year-old is one thing, but for a baby?! Babies can’t even drive…
Khloe bought her toddler a pink baby Bentley convertible before she could even walk! This seems to be a tradition for all the Karjenner cousins. Honestly, if the kids decided to join forces, they could open their own car dealership. I would love that sparkly pink car now; I wonder what True is going to be driving as an adult. But I must say, she does look adorable in there.
Non Disclosure Agreements
If you are ever lucky enough to be invited into Kris Jenner’s extravagant home, you should know that privilege comes with responsibility. The famous mom has a pile of non-disclosure agreements sitting on a table. Anyone who walks into the house must sign one. That seems like a lot of pressure.
Don’t think you can leave Kris Jenner’s house spilling any secrets! On top of the papers, there is a little sign that says: “What we say here, what we see here, let it stay here when we leave here.” That makes total sense, but I wonder what secrets they are keeping. I mean, their life is literally a reality TV show plastered on everyone’s screens.
Flowers Made of Money
As you would imagine, Kylie has pretty incredible office space for her makeup line, Kylie’s Cosmetics. She perfected her style and incorporated it into her amazing office. Kylie was congratulated with flowers, like many of us. However, among the flowers was one of the most unnecessary gifts anyone could ever get.
Kylie’s fashion designer, Alexander Wang, gave Kylie a vase of flowers – made out of money! Yes, literal money. This is worse than Kimye’s gold toilet seat! Kylie proudly displays the flowers in her office. I guess I can’t really blame him. What do you give the billionaire who has it all? If you ever run into that problem, the answer is flowers made of money.
Okay, I know this sounds like a joke, but I’m completely serious right now. If you thought you saw some unnecessary expensive items on here, get ready to have, your mind blown. Kim Kardashian West bought golden pacifiers encrusted with diamonds. I guess that’s one way to make sure everyone knows you’re rich.
If you have $100 thousand lying around, you can spend it on golden pacifiers like Kim. Or you can donate the money to charity. It’s ridiculous to spend so much money on this useless pacifier when there are starving kids out there. But who am I to judge? It just seems like a huge exaggeration. If there is one thing babies lose more than anything, it’s their pacifiers!
One of my favorite things on this earth is scented candles, so if I were a Kardashian, I would probably be Khloe. Don’t tell Kim, but Khloe is my favorite. She has candles all-around in each corner of her house. I personally buy whichever candles are on sale at Marshals, but as you can imagine, Khloe’s candle budget is a little higher than mine.
One of the reality star’s favorites is Voluspa Grande Maison Candle in French Bourbon Vanille. Yum! That sounds amazing! No boring old candles for Khloe. If I go out and buy this candle, would that make me one step closer to becoming a Kardashian?
As we’ve seen, the Kardashians like to make all their unessential items extra and eye-catching. Well, I’m happy to announce that sometimes, the reality TV family can be more subtle. However, sometimes the smaller unnoticeable details can be even more unnecessary. Check out Kylie’s office snacks.
In Kylie’s fancy office, she has little bowls filled with pink starbursts and M&Ms – with her face printed on them! I don’t even know what to say. Apparently, Kylie thought the detail on the pink candy will help make the room feel so overwhelmingly pink. When I am important enough to have my face printed out on candy, I’ll comment. For now, I got nothing.
If you want to feel like a Kardashian, just order a massive rose arrangement that spells out your name. As you probably already know, this family goes all out when it comes to celebrating big days. A regular bouquet of flowers is fine when it comes to commoners like you and me. But if you’re a Kardashian, everything is above and beyond.
When Kim’s daughter, Chicago West, was born, her Aunt Khloe sent the newborn roses. These flowers were a larger than life arrangement that spell out “Chic.” It must have taken hundreds of roses, and Chicago won’t even remember them. Also, Kim reportedly spent $20,000 on roses for her baby shower! If I had $20,000, it wouldn’t go to flowers – or anything else that will die.
A Wig Room
If you follow Kylie Jenner, you know she loves to change her hair for every occasion. You can see this girl rocking every color hair known to man. She loves switching up her hair so much that she literally dedicated an entire room to her wigs. I don’t know what’s richer, needing a room for all your wigs, or having so many rooms that you can dedicate one to your wigs.
Kylie keeps her mannequins and hair extensions in there and described it as her “favorite room in her house.” Plus, she gave her fans a sneak peek inside. She showed off the wig she wore to the video music awards saying, “My green one that I wore for the sugar factory…. almost got snatched off my head.
Champagne Vending Machine
If you thought a diamond-encrusted pacifier was over the top, think again. If you ever take a visit over to Kylie Cosmetics, you can leave with a bottle of champagne. Most offices have a soda vending machine or even a snack machine, but that’s not luxurious enough for this reality TV sister.
The makeup mogul branded the champagne vending machine! Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Supposedly, Kylie never used the machine, but that didn’t stop others from enjoying this unnecessary yet fun attraction at Kylie Cosmetics. I wonder if the bottles come with complimentary Kylie Cosmetic Champagne glasses. That would be a fun souvenir.
Black Range Rover
Just like her sisters, Khloe has a need for speed! Okay, maybe not “speed” per se, but she does love her cars! If her two-year-old daughter has a luxurious ride, you can bet Khloe does, too. She got her mother’s obsession with the color black and bought herself a Range Rover covered in black velvet by West Coast Customs.
I would be so scared to drive that thing. Or touch it and accidentally ruin it. I wonder what happens when it rains. Also, how do you clean a velvet car? So many questions! I guess if something happens to the car, Khloe has a garage full of backups… or she can just buy another one. It’s not like she can’t afford it.
Swarovski-Encrusted Rocking Horse
An average rocking horse suitable for children usually costs about $50. However, the Kardashians are no average family. They aren’t settling for a plain old rocking horse. Kim Kardashian owns a life-sized rocking horse encrusted with 82,000 Swarovski crystals. The lavish rocking horse is hand-made, and each crystal was also placed by hand.
Isn’t this for her kids to play with? Eventually, the crystals will start to fall off. The horse has a compartment in the middle for storage space. That’s convenient… I guess? Plus, each horse that is made is marked with a number. That way, you can show off the fact that your rocking horse is an original.
Louis Vuitton Teddy Bear
Did you think that rocking horse was taking it too far? Well, leave it to Kim to purchase one of the most expensive teddy bears known to man. To welcome Chicago West into the world, her mom splurged on several diamond-encrusted toys for her baby. This one looks a little more child friendly (no diamonds to swallow).
This Louis Vuitton teddy bear is made from premium denim and is one of a kind. Of course, the Louis Vuitton logo is covering the really expensive stuffed animal. It’s just like Chicago’s Louis Vuitton music box. Is it really worth the money? She doesn’t know what Louis Vuitton even is. I’m sure she would be just as happy with a teddy bear from Walmart.
Blowdryer for Jewelry
Sometimes celebrities seem superhuman. But at the end of the day, they are people like you and me, and they have some strange pet peeves. One of Kim’s weirdest habits is blow drying her jewelry before putting it on. I never heard of that, but we all have our weird things, right?
Kim admitted in a 2011 tweet that she has a special blow dryer specifically for her jewelry, and she always uses it. Apparently, cold jewelry gives her the chills. A lot of things give me the chills, but I don’t have a blow dryer for each of them. Also, this sounds like a good idea, but I don’t think my jewelry can handle the heat of a blow dryer.
When Kylie Jenner wants to go somewhere, she rides in style! The girls have a large variety of transportation options. When your successful makeup brand turned you into one of the youngest billionaires in the world, it only makes sense to invest in cars. It does, however, seem a little excessive. How many cars does one person really need?
Kylie has a luxurious car collection. Her garage features a Bentley Betayga, a custom-made Range Rover, and a Mercedes G-Wagon. The makeup mogul is obsessed with cars and reportedly owns at least two Ferraris. You may remember that one of them was a gift from Travis Scott, her ex-boyfriend.
As we already know, the Kardashian/Jenners love to document all of their achievements, and who could blame them? They worked hard to get to the top and want to show off their success. I would do the same thing (minus a diamond-encrusted pacifier). In addition to our TV screens and social media, the successful family has also been on magazine covers.
Well, it probably doesn’t come as a shock that there is a full table with every Kardashian/Jenner magazine cover ever. Considering one of them is in a magazine every single week, they will probably need a new table soon. I wonder if the tabloid magazines made it to that table.
As you can imagine, the Kardashians don’t slack when it comes to buying anything for their kids. That’s why they pay as much money on a crib as they would for a new car. To create a perfectly designed baby room, Kim added a storage ottoman, bassinette, bookcase, velvet rocket, and chandelier. That brings baby Chicago’s room to a total of $40,000.
And that’s the furniture. If you factor in clothes, toys, shoes, and Jewelry, I will lose count. There is no doubt in my mind that millions were spent on these kids when they were just infants. It’s not like these babies know the difference between a designer crib and a Target crib.
Living In a White House
Kim Kardashian West’s home was a birthday present for her husband, Kanye West. The most noticeably odd thing about the new house was the color scheme. How does it stay so white? Considering they have four kids and the oldest is 6, I’m surprised nothing is dirty!
The fact that they even chose a spotless white theme in their home is confusing to me. Kids love to make a mess and express their creativity. Plus, the color makes the house feel cold and museum-like. It doesn’t have a warm feel because of the white plain emptiness. Either way, I need that couch to melt into. It looks like the most amazing thing I’ve seen in my life.
Minimalism Or Paranoia?
As you probably already know, the Kardashians have been victims of robbery. However, when Kim showed off her new mansion, fans of the billionaire family were confused. You can’t help but notice the lack of, well… everything. In addition to everything being white and boring, there are no pictures on display, toys out, or anything that makes it feel like a real home.
I don’t want to judge because there is a huge possibility that they are hiding their stuff from potential thieves. After what Kim went through, I don’t blame them. However, Kim described the design as a “minimalist monastery?” Ummm… after looking at this list, there is nothing minimalistic about the Kardashians.
Their Public Bathroom
Kim and Kanye’s new home is a bit concerning for many reasons. Like the lack of details, whitewashed walls, and their bathroom. Don’t get me wrong, this is obviously a nice and fancy bathroom, but is it really necessary? I just want to go in there and do my business, but the one thing it doesn’t have is privacy.
Is it just me, or do other people get uncomfortable peeing in a massive bathroom with huge see-through windows? Kim and Kanye should be more concerned about this than I am. They are the ones who have paparazzi running after them. They are going to have a field day with this exposed view into their bathroom.
