lifestyle of the Rich and Famous-A Plot

nick cannon lifestyles of the rich and famous What is the point of Nick Cannon's 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous' reboot?


Watching rich people and their extravagant lifestyles is a staple of current reality TV — the “Real Housewives” franchise lives on for a reason — but NBC’s new reboot of the late ’80s/early ’90s staple “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” seems like it’s coming about 10 years too late.

“Lifestyles” famously featured narrator Robin Leach as he toured the homes of the incredibly wealthy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cannon will take on that role as he profiles “some of the new tech billionaires who have replaced the old guard of real estate tycoons and their new set of tastes and extravagances.”

There’s no greater voyeuristic thrill than looking at other people’s stuff, but with Instagram and other forms of social media, we already have unprecedented access inside people’s lives. There are entire tumblrs dedicated to #richkidsofinstagram and their ridiculous extravagances. Just go down a Google wormhole — you’ll waste plenty of time looking at things you can’t afford.

Even MTV’s “Cribs,” which featured celebrities showing off their tricked-out houses for more than a decade, ended in 2011 — and that had the benefit of having way less Nick Cannon.

NBC has only ordered a “Lifestyles” pilot, so there’s no guarantee it’ll actually become a series, but in a world with immediate access inside pretty much any high profile person’s life, there’s no need for a reality show about all their cool crap.

Scott Disick has been honing his rich kid meets Patrick Bateman persona for years, so it makes sense that he’d be in the running to host a rebooted version of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” notoriously hosted by Robin Leach in its ’90s heyday.

The Million Dollar Man meets Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. The following feature was something I did for the initial version of Ted DiBiase’s official home page. They’re no longer using it, so I’m now posting it as part of the Kevin Buchanan archives.

Books for MEN

1) The Way Of The Superior Man:

A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Woman, Work, and Sexual Desire by David Deida.

This is the BEST book you can read about becoming a man, and being attractive to women BAR NONE.


I have read it three times, and will read it again. When I travel with my girlfriend, I always pack this book. I even purchased it for my dad on his 64th birthday.

The chapters are short and sweet, and the language is direct, challenging and immensely hopeful. If you haven’t read this book yet, purchase it today and put down everything else you are reading. I am dead serious it is that important.

 2.Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing.

As a guy, we all need role models. When I became interested in improving my dating and relationship life, I also got interested in learning more about what it means to be a man.


This book was recommended to me as it shows exactly what it means to be a man on a mission, to be a guy who truly knows and owns his purpose and mission in life.

These things are critical to get handled if you want to be more attractive to women.

3.How To Get A Girlfriend  by Stephen Nash.

Of course I had to put my own book in here. If you are interested in real, intuitive and actionable advice about dating, women and relationships then I urge you to get it now. It should be your second read, after The Game.


In the book, I outline the 7 steps to getting a lasting, healthy relationship with a woman you are truly attracted to. I also share every effective social technique I’ve ever learned – so, things like approaching a woman, flirting, connecting, getting the phone number etc.

It combines very practical, actionable technique with my powerful, overarching philosophy on cultivating masculinity, presence and confidence.





Travel Alone-A Kind Of Life Style

I could tell you I decided to go away alone because I wanted an adventure, or because I was about to burn out and needed a break; but, the real reason I headed off on my first big solo journey was a bruised ego and a bit of a broken heart. I needed to be far, far away from what was causing me pain (and the reminders in the form of photos popping up on social media), so I decided to escape.

I split my time between two spots: One where I was with a group, the other where I was completely on my own. For the first leg, I attended The Ranch 4.0, an intense (and wonderful) health and fitness program in Southern California. For the second, I headed to Kauai and stayed in a villa I found through a group called Pure Kauai, a world-class concierge service (yes, I wanted to treat myself!) that caters both to women traveling solo and to couples, families, and groups.

I quickly learned something several wise people had discovered before me: traveling alone absolutely changes your life. Here’s a nowhere near complete list of why you should make your next vacation a solo one.


You get comfortable being alone.

There were two main reactions from friends and family when I was planning my first trip for one. “That’s awesome — I’m jealous,” or, “Are you worried about being alone?” I thought about the second one quite a bit. On the one hand, I was proud of myself for going on an adventure all by my lonesome; on the other, I was a little nervous. Would I be safe? Would I be lonely? I had a few near panic attacks imagining myself sitting by myself at dinner in a land of honeymooners, awkwardly playing with my food and avoiding eye contact. I worried I would end up feeling more pathetic than I would empowered. I’m all for being independent and I do plenty of things on my own in my day-to-day life, but it’s not always the easiest thing to do single what you might otherwise do with company. I knew no one and had no idea what to expect
