'Cribs' Is Coming Back To MTV UK And It Feels Like The Noughties
If you were a teenager with a pulse in the early noughties, it's likely you lived and breathed the cultural phenomenon that was MTV Cribs. Before Keeping Up With the Kardashians hit screens, MTV Cribs was the pop culture junkie's drug of choice. And MTV UK has confirmed that its former cult hit Cribs will be returning, with a variety of extra stars inviting us into their homes in the UK.
The eight-episode series will be produced by Viacom International Media Networks' in-house production team, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with production starting in spring. The series will be aired over here later this year.
Remember when they invited us into Mariah Carey's iconic New York penthouse complete with a monogrammed walk-in-wardrobe four times the size of our flat, a lingerie closet and gold-accented bathrooms? Sure you do. Remember she was so extra: using her Stairmaster in four-inch heels and changing outfits so many times they made it an hour-long special? It was TV gold.
Other highlights included Kim Kardashian (a mere two months before KUWTK premiered) showing off her stripper pole and Louis Vuitton collection, Destiny's Child's 'reflection room' with their mounted gold and platinum records on the wall (of course Michelle didn't actually live there #poormichelle) and Missy Elliott's Ferrari bed with a shoe rack that pops out of the 'trunk'.

From Ja Rule to Pamela Anderson and 50 Cent to Shaquille O'Neal, every celebrity who was anyone had the Cribs crew through their (opposite-of) humble abode.
But what will the UK's take on the iconic show be? We all remember being more than a little disappointment by Blue's efforts.
"With its firmly cemented status as a cult hit program, Cribs remains one of the most-loved shows in MTV history," MTV UK's Kelly Bradshaw said.
"The new series is set to be warm and funny, giving MTV audiences a sneak peak into how their favourite stars live."
The original series dropped in 2000, giving us tours of swanky pads belonging to the likes of 50 Cent, Ozzy Osbourne, Ashton Kutcher, Beyonce, Melissa Joan Hart, Shaggy and Kim Kardashian.
Keep an eye out for the new series of Cribs in 2019.
