MTV Cribs was one of the most popular shows on television in the early 2000’s. It took the premise of Robin Leach’s Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and adapted it to the new generation. For 13 seasons it would bring us into the homes of your favorite celebrities and show us exactly what all that fame and fortune could afford.
Even Dave Chappelle Spoofed It!
Rumor has it that not all of the episodes were honest, as some celebs would rent mansions to make it look like they were doing better than they were, but most people were honest. MTV would come to find out that the most popular episodes weren’t the biggest homes with the dopest cars. It was the people who still lived just like everyone else. Who was really, “Keeping it real?” New Jersey’s own, rapper Redman is one of the first that comes to mind, and of course the entire Jackass crew got their own episode!
