Robert: Fran Drescher wants Cardi B for a Nanny reboot
The flashy girl from Flushing, Fran Drescher, says she’s ready for a reboot of her 90’s sitcom The Nanny, and she knows who she’d cast for the show.
In a recent interview, Drescher, 61, expressed her interest in a Nanny revivial, “I’m totally down with doing it,” she said. “I don’t know what is going on with some of these networks out there because they do not seem to be hip to the fact that there’s an obsession amongst millennials for the show and moi!”
She then went on to reveal that she already has a person in mind to play her daughter, “I wanna do a sitcom with Cardi B,” Drescher said.
The concept of the “Bodak Yellow” rapper playing Drescher’s offspring came after Cardi wore a cheetah print outfit that immediately drew comparisons to the signature wardrobe of Drescher’s character on the show. “I was so flattered,” Drescher said. “I just thought she paid homage to me wearing animal print and said ‘Fran Drescher.’ And then I got my juices flowing and thought, ‘Wait a minute, she’s from New York, we both have funny voices, she could be my daughter!’” Drescher continued.
