'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,' with Robin Leach, aired from 1984-1995.
We got a close-up look at how 'the other half' worked, played and where they hung their hats at the end of the day. Secretly, we wondered what life would be like, if we were millionaires. It is hard to conceive such lavish living.
