Nick Cannon Will Bring Style & Panache to Reboot of ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous’

Nick Cannon Will Bring Style & Panache to Reboot of 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous'

The constantly-busy Nick Cannon, who already hosts at least 2 other TV shows, has signed up to host yet another one – a reboot of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” for NBC. 

A year ago, when news of a revival of the show was announced, it was set up at the Style network; it’s now heading to NBC, with Cannon taking over a position that was previously-filled by Robin Leach in the 1980s and 1990s. 

The new-look “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” will take viewers into the homes of new-money players – the dot-commers, hip-hop famers, and more. 

In addition to hosting the revived “Wild N’ Out” at MTV2, Cannon has also hosted “America’s Got Talent,” Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards, the Halo Awards and more.

He also inked a first-look production deal with NBC, to develop scripted and unscripted programming for the network, and recently revived the 2002 drama “Drumline” with a sequel that aired on VH1 2 weeks ago.

Cannon is already quite busy with several projects for different platforms, including a sequel to 2002’s Drumline, which he’s directing.

No word yet on when the “Lifestyles” reboot will debut. 

In the meantime, take a trip down memory lane… with champagne wishes and caviar dreams:
