Eamonn & Ruth: How the Other Half Lives

Series 2 - Episode 1



Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford shed more light on the lives of the super-rich, taking their investigation beyond British shores to meet some of the wealthiest people on the planet. They begin with a trip to New York, which is reportedly home to more billionaires than anywhere else in the world. Eamonn introduces Mr Chatwal and his son Vikram, who run a hotel empire together, and are rich enough to enjoy treats such as 1,000-dollar ice cream sundaes covered in edible 24-carat gold. Ruth heads to the Hamptons, one of the most exclusive stretches of real-estate in the world, and meets party planner Andrea Correale, who caters to the weird and wonderful requests of a string of A-list clients. Finally, the take in New York's Upper East Side, where they interview the charismatic Mrs Barsky, who has lived in an apartment in the luxurious Carlyle Hotel for the past 23 years.
