Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous (TV)

"Is it possible your boyfriend's financial problems are just his champagne wishes and caviar dreams biting him on the ass?"

At the height of its popularity during the later Reagan years, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous was an ancestor of Cribs. Cameras revealed the lush surroundings of celebrities and moguls for us schlubs sitting on our futons at home, eating bean dip straight from the jar. British gossip columnist Robin Leach hosted the program with a distinctive (and often mocked) accent and the signature catch phrase, "champagne wishes and caviar dreams." Logan Echolls certainly qualifies as rich (for now), and he is fame-adjacent, just like Lourdes Ciccone Leon. Or Paris Hilton.
