Robin Leach, Host of 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,' Dies at 76
The show centered on the glitz and glam of celebrity life.
Veteran entertainment reporter Robin Leach has died.
The 76-year-old London native was best known for hosting the TV show "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” which showcased the glitz and glam of celebrity life in the '80s and '90s, and ushered in the age of celebrity reality shows.
“Donald, what does Tiffany have of yours and what does she have of Marla’s?” the host asked.
“She's got Marla’s legs. We don't know whether or not she's got this part [points to breasts] yet or not. Only time will tell,” he replied.
Inside Edition spoke to Leach about those comments in 2016.
“I'm sorry I asked the question 22 years ago and I’m sorry they dug it up,” he replied.
This past fall, he was still active in the celebrity world and even shot an episode of "Most Expensive" with rapper 2 Chainz.
Leach suffered a stroke in November and had been hospitalized since. A colleague at the Las Vegas Journal-Review, where he was still employed as a celebrity columnist, tweeted that the TV personality had suffered another stroke Monday.
"What a beautiful life he had," his family said in a statement Friday after the announcement of his death came.
