Pia Zadora remembers her friend, Robin Leach

Local News

Robin Leach, whose voice crystallized the opulent 1980s on TV’s “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” died Friday at the age of 76.

“It’s very sad. It’s a big loss and an end of an era,” said Pia Zadora, famed actress, and Las Vegas entertainer.

On Friday, Zadora talked fondly of her friend in a one-on-one sit down interview with Christianne Klein. She spoke about who he was outside of the glitz and the glam.

“Robin was extremely loyal; extremely caring, and he was just always there,” famed actress and Las Vegas entertainer Pia Zadora said. “He was extremely supportive of the community, and a friend to me, obviously, but he was just; he was unique because he was someone who combined old-school show business and glamour and he connected it to a new generation.”

Leach’s family said through a public relations firm that he died in Las Vegas, where he made his home.

Leach had a stroke in November while on vacation in Mexico that led to a months-long recovery, much of which he spent at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio before returning to Las Vegas in June.

She also went on to say Leach was a “sweet” man who “loved life” and who “loved women.”
