Robin Leach Worth $100 Million Plus?

It is profoundly unfortunate that someone named "Leach" should have done a show called "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous". That having been said, Robin Leach, bottom-feeding remora that he is, doesn't seem to be doing bad for himself despite the sleazy sheen that ensorcells him like an greasy nimbus (Saint with an air of restrained contempt). From Marksfriggin:

"Howard talked to Robin (Leach) about how much stuff he's done in his career. He said they started Entertainment Tonight, Star Search, Lifestyles of the Rich And Famous and other things. He also started the Food Network and sold that off. He said he usually sells stuff off after 5 years and that's a good rule for that kind of thing. He said you reach plateaus and you just have to move on. He said that once the Food Network got to 60 million households he figured it couldn't go any higher and got out. He said the investment was about $50 million. He said they thought it was a great idea at the time and it worked out well for him. He said that he was in it for about 25 percent of what they sold it for. Howard asked what the price was when they sold it. It was close to $500 million when it sold. Howard said it's no wonder all of these women want to marry him. Robin claims it has nothing to do with the money."

Oh, to be sure. A troll like Robin -- yes, we are most definitely "hating" -- has upwards of $100 mil and that has nothing to do with the models falling all over him. (Marksfriggin)
