Nick Cannon is getting money out here, if you didn’t know.

As per his latest endeavor, the papa to Dem Babies will be hitting NBC. The network is gearing up to revive the 1990s classic Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, this time hosted by Cannon.

According to THR:

NBC will shoot a new take on Lifestyles, which is said to be extremely different than Style’s take. The new version will focus heavily on Cannon’s point of view and include fun profiles on ultra-wealthy individuals with vibrant personalities, hobbies and tastes. NBC says the series will feature some of the new tech billionaires who have replaced the old guard of real estate tycoons and their new set of tastes and extravagances. In addition to featuring the extravagant toys and hotspots of the rich and famous, Cannon will also highlight their philanthropic efforts.

We can dig it. Congrats, Nick.

According to the latest reports, Frozen actress Spencer Lacey Ganus  who starred as Elsa – got paid just $926.00 for starring in one of the most successful animated films ever.
