The man who greeted us with “champagne wishes and caviar dreams” passed away yesterday (Friday).
Most people remember Robin Leach best as host of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” in the 80s and 90s. He became one of the originators of over-the-top celebrity television coverage and continued his career as a celebrity columnist long after the show ended in 1995.
Us Magazine reports that the star reporter had been hospitalized for the past 10 months after suffering a stroke late last year, then had another one earlier this week. Robin Leach was 76.
