'The Nanny' Reboot - Fran Drescher Wants Cardi B To Play Daughter

NEW YORK, NEW YORK — If you grew up in the 90’s, you more than likely are familiar with a popular sitcom called The Nanny. Well, Fran Drescher is ready for a reboot and wants Cardi B as her sidekick.


Of course, Fran’s onscreen love isn’t someone who could produce a “Cardi,” no matter how much he’d like. And to that, Drescher says Cardi would have to come from another man.

According to an interview with People Magazine, Fran Drescher is “down.”

NOTE: Interest piqued when Cardi B posted a photo of herself in full animal print, from head to toe. “Fran Drescher in [Dolce & Gabbana],” the rapper mentioned in the pic’s caption.

During the interview, Drescher stated as follows.

“I was so flattered. 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!'”

Well, as aforementioned, that’s where the plot twist would come in, ideally. Fran says her daughter wouldn’t come from “Mr. Sheffield.”

“I would have to have a man of color,” Drescher said. “I’m down with the brothers.”

That…is believable.

Fran Drescher comes from a nostalgic, 90’s time. You knew her voice when you heard it; likewise, you seemingly understood her will to make it to a bigger and better lifestyle.

Well, Cardi B appears comparable to a modern-day Fran Drescher, as success is concerned. The rapper came from nothing and climbed her way to the top — as is the story of so many, right?

Nevertheless, Cardi’s voice is distinctive. You know exactly when you hear her speak, whether via music or a TV spot. You know Cardi’s New York, Latina sound. Likewise, you know Fran’s.

Too, to retract an earlier statement, Cardi B’s similarity was first noticed during her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. During her interview, she resembled Drescher via her wardrobe and hairstyle. People actually started calling for The Nanny‘s remake from that point.

Well, all in all, Cardi hasn’t responded to the possibility at the moment. However, it could be on the way. She’s quite the busy person these days, especially while adapting to motherhood.
