This August, Joan Rivers will no longer be asking, “What are you wearing?” Instead, she will be taking us into the lives of the ridiculously wealthy and asking them, “How’d You Get So Rich?” She will explore several millionaires’ lifestyles, how they got their money, and how they spend it! Keep reading for details on who exactly Joan might be interrogating…
According to the TV Land press release:
Discover how millionaires ranging rrom the BillyBob Teeth Inventor to “Mr. Mardi Gras” Got Their Money,and the wacky and extravagant ways they spend it! The economy may be in the tank, but like it or not, there are still millionaires out there – and they didn’t all get rich by stealing your money!
The 30-minute series, of the same name, premieres on TV Land on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Accompany Joan as she adds “fortune explorer” to her rÃƒsumÃƒ with this new original series airing in TV Land PRIME. Viewers will be shocked as they discover how these great fortunes were made and the zany ways they are being spent.
“There is no one more outrageous and hilarious than Joan Rivers to introduce America to multimillionaires who prove that there is no such thing as small ideas!,” states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. “How’d You Get So Rich? is the perfect escapist fantasy and in these tough times – an inspiration. The guy who made a 5 chamber bubble wand is worth $50 million. Why didn’t I think of that!”
Rivers takes viewers on a journey to meet the millionaires who struck gold as she tours the most lavish and extravagant homes and introduces them to folks who made a lot of money in really interesting ways — – the way only Joan can. From the inventor of the BillyBob Teeth who grew up dirt poor to the pioneer of the Infomercial who peddles goodies like Obama coins and “Mr. Mardi Gras” who still lives in the same house as when he came into his riches to a Telecommunications tycoon who built an empire by starting out going door to door selling cordless phones, all of these millionaires made their money in the most unexpected and interesting ways.
