Fran Drescher revealed on Wednesday’s episode of PeopleTV’s Chatter that she would love to reboot The Nanny with rapper Cardi B as her daughter.
Drescher said, “I’m totally down with doing it. It’s just I don’t know what is going on with some of these networks out there because they do not seem to be into the fact that there is like an obsession amongst millennials for the show.”
“I want to do a sitcom with Cardi B. Wouldn’t she be great as my daughter?” Drescher said.
Drescher expressed, “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!”
Fans have been comparing Cardi B to Drescher since last December, when the rapper dressed like Fran on The Tonight Show. Fans took to twitter to share their thoughts.
@yankeependleton tweeted, “Nanny remake starring @iamcardib. Make it happy TV Gods.”
