A '90s sitcom star sees a lot of herself in one of today’s top stars.
Fran Drescher has her eye on Cardi B for a potential reboot of The Nanny. Drescher thinks that Bardi would be a natural choice to play her TV daughter. Drescher says she’s even speaking with the artist’s team to try and lock things down. She tells Extra, “It’s really getting me excited. It’s fresh and it could be super fun.”
The Bronx rapper got on the 61-year-old actress's radar when she was photographed at New York Fashion Week wearing a head-to-toe cheetah-print outfit. On Instagram, Bardi said the look was inspired by the former Nanny. And when Drescher saw a picture of herself next to Cardi, both rocking head-to-toe animal print, it got her “creative juices going.” Plus, as Fran points out, “she’s got a funny voice, too… What kind of a great mother-daughter would we be? Amazing, I think.”
