The extravagant Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous are coming back to a TV screen near you. The original series, which went off the air in 1995, is being rebooted for the Style Network with Nick Cannon slated to host. “To be a part of Style’s reimagination of this iconic show and follow in the footsteps of the legendary Robin Leach is a dream come true,” Cannon told The Hollywood Reporter. “Even though I am fortunate to have certain luxuries, sometimes, I am even amazed by what people with money have and do. I want to remind people that just because you might be rich and famous, it doesn’t mean you have to take yourself too seriously.” [Vulture]
