An Editor’s Note That Screams Rich and Famous Synchronicity

Sometimes, media announcements juxtapose in the most hilarious ways.


Exhibit A is yesterday’s news about Nick Cannon being the somewhat unlikely host of a new Style Network version of Robin Leach‘s syndicated chestnut Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Exhibit B is the following Las Vegas Sun column topper, posted around the same time Thursday:

Editor’s Note: As Robin Leach winds down his traditional summer vacation under the Tuscan sun in Italy and heads to the east coast for a brief visit before returning to the rigors of Vegas DeLuxe, many of our Strip personalities have stepped forward in his absence to pen their own words of wisdom…

Ergo: As Mariah Carey‘s hubby gets ready to take over the R&F franchise, original host RL is most definitely rich and at least still semi-famous. We wish Cannon all the best as he tries to fill some very big vocal shoes.
