There was a outro song for the lifestyles of the rich and famous sung by a woman. I can't seem to find that one. does anyone know who she is or the song itself.

Go one further: this stupid show created the culture that architected the financial meltdown in 2008. The rich people featured on this show were formerly underground with their wealth and power. This show put them above ground for everyone to admire. This show demonstrated that being ostentatious, rich and powerful were qualities to be admired. What this show failed to elucidate is just how shitty and those people really were/are.

I, too, hate this show.

I hated this show. Don't wanna see how good the rich and famous live. This show pretty much spawned trash TV known as reality TV.
