Today’s celebs are richer than ever. They have so much money in the bank and keep on raking it in while the rest of the world struggles to make ends meet. With all they earn for shows, movies, concerts, appearances, etc., these stars can afford the finest of things, including magnificent residences. Many celebs live in sprawling mansions or duplex apartments in the world’s most expensive cities and have multiple homes and vacation villas just for the heck of it. They enjoy their lives in the laps of luxury as their staff tends to their needs and whims. Pricey furniture, rare art, fine china, and luxe surroundings allow these famous folks to enjoy their homes to the fullest.
Although these 15 celebs do live it up in the manner in which one may expect, they have that certain persona that makes it just as easy to see them shacking up in a trailer park as it is to picture them dwelling in much more lavish conditions. Perhaps it's the way that they give off that “I don’t give an ‘F’” attitude or that they're much more down to earth than most of the celebs we see.
Can you imagine these 15 celebs giving up all their glamorous goodies for a much simpler life in a trailer park? Who knows what they’d do with all their money, but they'd surely save a ton of dough by living a modest existence. Their kids would surely land an impressive inheritance!
15 Lena Dunham
Lena Dunham is a very rich woman, thanks to her great success with her HBO hit, Girls, among other work in the entertainment field. She can spend her hard-earned money on whatever she wants, but it seems like she wants to look like she isn’t rich at all. She would probably enjoy living in a trailer park to prove she got into the entertainment business for the craft of it rather than the money. She could film her next hit show right on the lot and hire her neighbors as extras on set. Since Dunham never seems to wear designer clothing, she wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb at the park. If you live in a trailer park, don’t be surprised if Dunham moves in next door soon.
14 Amanda Bynes
Actress Amanda Bynes once had the world at her feet but screwed it all up by totally losing it. Her public displays of oddity, mean-spirited and embarrassing Twitter rants, and other unusual behavior brought the washed-up actress back into the public eye, but for all the wrong reasons. Once a budding young actress, Bynes is now the butt of jokes, and some even sincerely worry about her well-being. She may have made a lot of money at one moment in her career, but at this point, it seems like the actress is counting her pennies. Perhaps, a realistic move to the nearby trailer park would allow Bynes to regroup and refocus her energy on becoming well, and she can get back into the acting biz. And if she winds up loving the trailer park, she can “pimp” her ride and make it flashy.
13 Mischa Barton
Mischa Barton was once a sought-after star known for her ravishing beauty and talent on screen. But as time passed, the actress was often caught in compromising situations, with allegations of drug and alcohol misuse and other shady public behavior. She went from the top of her game to the bottom of the barrel, and her photos online showed the beauty turn into something far less appealing. Without landing any decent roles, she may be starting to realize that money doesn’t fall from the trees… even in the glitzy town of Hollywood. Perhaps this would lead Barton to rent out some space in a local trailer park and give up the celeb life for something far less stressful. Heck, she could film a documentary about her move from riches to rags and get herself back into the limelight.
12 Britney Spears
Pop star Britney Spears makes lots of money, but by the way she goes out in public, you could swear she just emerged from her trailer rather than a multi-million-dollar mansion. She has enough dough to afford the finest food and wine, but she's far happier downing a bag of salty Cheetos and washing it down with a cherry Big Gulp. Her hair could be styled at the most exclusive salon, but hers looks like the water in her home isn’t even running. Nobody's saying trailer-park living can’t be fun, but a perk of being a celeb is being able to go for a lifestyle that's more “blingy.” Goes to show ya that even a big success like Spears can still have hometown tastes and values.
11 Kid Rock
Kid Rock has made his millions as an entertainer, but even with all that money, he would still fit in perfectly with a double wide at the trailer park. His music appeals to the Average Joe, and so does his style. Sure, we all know he’d never give up his mansion for a spot at the trailer park, but if things went south in his career, there's no doubt he could pack up his belongings and move right in with some of his fans. Rock may give off a no-frills vibe, but after some time living it up in luxury, the move may not be easy. But once Rock is situated in his new surroundings, he'll be the rock star of the trailer park, keeping the other tenants up all night.
10 Miley Cyrus
Singer Miley Cyrus is one of the hottest performers of the moment, and she's been earning lots of money since she was just a kid. She has millions in the bank and isn’t afraid to flaunt it. But she seems like the kind of chick who could be totally cool with living a much more modest existence – perhaps in a no-frills trailer park. She may have to do away with all of her outrageous stage costumes and get rid of the entourage she chills with, but she's a bubbly gal and would surely make some new friends in her new, less pricey home. While Cyrus would surely pick palaces over the poorhouse, she seems to be a go-with-the-flow sort of chick. She’d even bake cookies (seasoned with pot, perhaps) for the neighbors.
9 Tara Reid
Tara Reid has had her ups and downs in showbiz, and with the pics we've seen of the star on the web, it's clear that she isn’t exactly the prim-and-proper type who wouldn’t be able to live in a modest dwelling such as a trailer park. She isn’t the richest actress in Hollywood by far, but she must live in a dwelling that's a few steps up from a trailer park. That said, she's one Sharknado away from losing whatever earnings she's saved and could likely find herself in a pinch. Downsizing may be in the actress’s future, so a decent trailer park could be Reid’s new address. The “cute blonde” thing is a casting dream, but she seems to be aging out of the roster.
8 Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is a pop-music sensation, and with her impressive record sales and sold-out concert tours, this babe is as rich as one could ever hope to become. That said, Gaga seems like a down-to-earth doll who would be OK with living in a modest fashion. Sure, mansions and island vacation rentals are chic, but Gaga is a cool gal who could make the most out of any situation. She would show up to the nearest trailer park in one of her wacky outfits and make trailer park living the new “it” thing for celebs. She would have an extra trailer for her makeup person and clothing and another for her closest friends and family. Her trailer may be more stylish than most, but at least we can say she isn't too cool to live like the average folks do.
7 Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan has been in the public eye for a long time – since she was a cute kid. She's made a lot of money in that time, and some of it has surely gone towards living lavishly in large, sprawling homes all over the world. She seems to be in a casting slump nowadays, though, and the lifestyle which she's grown used to may not last much longer. The good news is that she would do just fine in a trailer park. She appears to have the right attitude to be able to chill with the other area folks and would feel like the queen of the park, thanks to her celeb status. She may no longer be an A-lister by Hollywood standards, but at the trailer park, she would be one of the Mean Girls and run the show.
Rapper Eminem comes from humble beginnings, so going back to where he's come from wouldn’t be such a burden on the guy. Of course, rising to the top and being able to afford mansions and other luxuries is a real thrill, but what goes up must come down some of the time. If one day, he lost all of his good fortunes and had to make a major change in his living situation, Eminem could pack his suitcase and call the trailer park his new humble home. He’d certainly have the time to create new rap music, and before he knew it, he’d be back on the scene again making millions. Hopefully, Eminem would give his new trailer park pals some of the loot since they were part of the inspiration for his comeback.
5 Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera has been a huge success ever since her start with the Mickey Mouse Club. She rose to major fame as a solo artist and is considered to be one of the most talented women in the business. She's fierce, fabulous, and filthy rich. But just like she gained it all, she could also lose her loot if things took a turn for the worse. What if Aguilera had to move out of her mansion and into a small trailer in a no-frills trailer park? She may cringe at the thought of it at first, but given a moment, the pop star may very well enjoy the new digs. She loves to act like she’s just a regular down-home kinda gal, so this move may humble the honey. She could sing for the folks at the park and still be the star she knows she is. She may not get paid a dime, but the audience will love her just as much.
Snooki may have cleaned up her act to some extent since her days drinking herself into oblivion on the Jersey Shore, but the same old wild and crazy Snooki will always live on inside the “new and improved” package. The pint-sized reality star is far richer than she was just a few years ago, but this doesn't mean she couldn’t go back to her former self and replace her mansion for something a whole lot smaller. She would be just fine living in the trailer park as long as her best pals and family were right there with her. With a red Solo cup in hand and her Jersey Shore wardrobe packed up, Snooki would be completely comfortable and feeling like a million bucks in accommodations that cost far less.
3 Kelly Clarkson
These days, the popular singer Kelly Clarkson is on top of the world, but there was a time when the American Idol star was just a regular run-of-the-mill country chick who was living a normal life in a humble manner. She still retains those hometown values, even though millions of bucks are in her bank account, so living in a trailer park wouldn’t bother Clarkson one bit. She seems like nothing fazes her, and she would be as happy living in an estate as she would in a cramped trailer. Sure, living the lavish life may be a lot more exciting, but as long as Clarkson can still belt out her awesome tunes, she would be as happy as she was the day she won Idol. Ryan Seacrest not included.
2 Lamar Odom
Basketball star Lamar Odom has made a boatload of moolah since he's been shooting hoops professionally, but he didn’t start out with a silver spoon in his mouth. His life became even more lavish when he wed Khloe Kardashian and became part of the Kris Jenner money-making machine. But Odom and Kardashian split up, and Odom’s life has been going downhill fast ever since. He's spent tons of money on drugs and other questionable extravagances, and he seems to be depressed and on a downward spiral. If he keeps on living life this way, before he knows it, the man could find himself moving out of the mansion and into a tight trailer park. For such a tall guy, this may be uncomfortable, and mansions don’t pay for themselves.
1 Courtney Love
Courtney Love has been a hot mess ever since we've known her. She's behaved in ways that are hard to believe yet has managed to maintain a musical career (to a certain degree). She was once married to one of rock’s legends and became a mom all while seemingly strung out and out of her mind. She's made a good deal of money by being famous, but she seems like the type of chick who could lose it all by making poor decisions. So, off to the trailer park she shall go, and she would fit in well since she seems to be a go-with-the-flow sorta person. Perhaps she would give in to living a simpler life and appreciate what she's been given rather than throwing it all away by being irresponsible.
