Ever feel like you just can’t relate to celebrities? Well, you’re not alone! Join Wonderwall.com as we take a look at the October 2021 receipts that prove stars are nothing like us… We’re sure anyone who’s parented a teenager can confirm that locating them sometimes can be a difficult feat. While some moms and dads might resort to calling friends or sending text messages to confirm their kid’s whereabouts, Kathy Hilton took a different route. The socialite and “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star used to call a New York City tabloid newspaper to track down daughter Paris Hilton when she went out partying. “I used to call the city desk at the New York Post. I would call the city desk and say at 1 in the morning, ‘Excuse me, hi, it’s Kathy Hilton. Uh, do you by any chance know Paris, where she is right now?'” Kathy revealed on the SiriusXM’s podcast “Lunch with Bruce,” Page Six reported on Oct. 6. Kathy continued, “This is the way I lived for years… My husband [Rick Hilton] had to get up and work in the morning. So eventually he’d go to sleep. But I was up waiting all night.”

During an interview for Vogue’s “73 Questions” video segment that hit the internet on Oct. 21, Adele was asked about her most prized possession. Her answer? A framed piece of music superstar Celine Dion’s gum! “It’s pretty amazing,” Adele gushed. “James Corden, who’s a friend of mine but also does ‘Carpool Karaoke,’ which I did, he did it with her and knew how much of a fan of hers I was. And so he made her spit her gum into a piece of paper and framed it for me.” Laughing, she concluded, “And it’s my proudest possession!” James later confirmed that it was “a true story,” telling his “Late, Late Show” audience that he had to stop Celine from doing “the fold,” i.e., folding over the paper she’d spit the gum into. “I said, ‘I got it, I got it, I got it,'” he recalled, noting that when he asked his producer to hang onto it and keep it “super safe,” she looked at him like he’d “lost his mind.” James further revealed the framed gum was a birthday gift for Adele, explaining, “She’s a difficult person to buy for. A candle doesn’t cut it!”

In October 2018, TMZ reported that newly filed court documents revealed that Kim Kardashian West is keeping the $60 million family home in Hidden Hills, California, that she and estranged husband Kanye West both shared with their kids before she filed for divorce. Kim retained the house by buying out her ex for $23 million — $20 million for the property, and another $3 million for its contents. According to TMZ, Kanye signed over his rights and the transfer was recorded with Los Angeles County officials on Sept. 28. The rapper-designer, however, isn’t exactly homeless: In September 2021, The Dirt reported that Ye paid $57.3 million for a concrete Tadao Ando-designed beachfront home in Malibu.

In the November 2021 issue of British Vogue, Adele — whose net worth is an estimated $177 million — claimed that she can’t really afford the cost of living in London. Keep in mind, however, that the “Easy on Me” hitmaker has invested more than $30 million in Los Angeles real estate, purchasing three compounds in the city’s Hidden Valley neighborhood in the last five years. Though we don’t doubt that housing prices across the pond are quite colossal, we still wish we had the real estate profile she does!

It’s bizarre to think that a 95-year-old woman could make headlines for using a walking stick, but that’s exactly what happened when Queen Elizabeth II stepped out with a cane at a public event on Oct. 12 and again on Oct. 14. According to CNN, the monarch relied on the stick for “comfort.” As for the last time she was seen with a walking aid? In 2003, after she underwent knee surgery.

The Serendipity playset from CedarWorks includes two swings, a swinging seesaw, multiple clubhouses and a slide and is covered in sweet heart, star and bird designs. We only wish we could’ve had this set up growing up! Mindy previously tweeted about splurging for the expensive set, tweeting in 2019, “All I’ve ever wanted for my kid is to have ‘the fun house.’ Remember that one friend that had the coolest backyard and everyone wanted to hang out there all the time?

The singer revealed on the Oct. 1 episode of the “Why Won’t You Date Me? with Nicole Byer” podcast that she and her “Spy Kids” actor hubby’s California home features side-by-side his-and-hers toilets — yes, you read that correctly! “We just got a new house, and we did construction,” Meghan explained. “Nobody knows this, but in our bathroom, there was one toilet, and a lot of time in the middle of the night when we’re with the baby, we’ve got to [urinate] at the same time. So I was like, ‘Can we please have two toilets next to each other?'”
While normal parents rely on piano teachers for lessons for their kids, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl tapped one of the most famous musicians in the world to give daughter Harper her very first piano lesson. No big deal at all, right?! While on “The Graham Norton Show” on Oct. 1, Dave recalled how he had Paul and wife Nancy over for dinner, and before the Beatles songwriter and bassist left, he spotted a piano in the room and sat down to play. “My daughter Harper, who I think was 5 at the time, is watching Paul McCartney on the piano and she goes to the kitchen and gets a coffee cup, puts some change in it and puts it on top of the piano like it’s a tip jar,” said Dave. “They sat down together, and he was showing her what to play, and they wrote a song together.” Wild!
Kim Kardashian West took to Instagram on Oct. 14 to share a series of photos in which she’s sporting faux fur sunglasses — Balenciaga’s Fluffy Cat sunglasses — which retail for a cool $1,150 a pair. Shelling out more than $1K for a pair of eccentric sunnies is totally normal… right?!

Angelina revealed on her GoFundMe page that she’d lost her husband to COVID-19 and lost her own job as a result of the pandemic. The donations list shows that “Kim Kardashian West” gave $3,000 — but she did not intend for it to be made public. “Kim did donate. She meant to do it anonymously and she gave the full amount the mother was asking for when she posted it, which was $3,000,” a source told Page Six.
