"Episode 201" -- The ultimate bachelors, the billionaire Maloof brothers, legendary diva Patti LaBelle, the most expensive island rental in the world and the generous ways of superstar George Clooney are all highlighted in "Life of Luxury," MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. George Hamilton hosts.

"Episode 201" highlights:

**One-on-one with the ultimate bachelors - the billionaire Maloof brothers, with a look inside their dazzling Las Vegas hotel, The Palms, and their $267 million sports investment, the Sacramento Kings. "Life of Luxury" also attends a private $10 million dinner for ten guests for Arnold Schwarzenegger, and takes a look at the secret passageways that Palms VIP guests like Britney Spears, 50 Cent, Eminem, Tara Reid and David Schwimmer have access to.

**The show hits NYC's Madison Avenue to go mega-shopping with legendary diva Patti LaBelle, who drops $85,000 on a chinchilla coat and $1,500 on one pair of shoes. We'll also visit her home with her dog, Rain, and where her closet contains her 3,000 pairs of shoes worth a whopping $1 million.

** In Florence, Italy, the gorgeous Ferragamo family dynasty is more than just well-heeled from their shoe empire; they also have stunning fashions, sexy hotels and one of the world's most elite sailing yacht companies. "Life of Luxury" visits their picturesque Tuscan village (not villa - village!) that they own, and dines with white glove service at the Ferragamo palace, which serves as the family's offices.

**Meet a woman who forged a $100 million dollar empire by building the most luxurious sports club ever, with a sushi bar, dry cleaner, spa and valet parking - it's more like a resort than a gym. Nanette Pattee Francini, founder and CEO of the Sports Club LA chain, created the place where celebs like Demi Moore, Madonna, Kim Cattrall and Jerry Seinfeld like to work out. There's even a stretch workout by candlelight, accompanied by a string quartet.

**The most expensive island rental in the world, Musha Cay, where the |ber-rich and celebs like Oprah, Faith Hill and Robin Williams pay up to $345,000 a week for complete privacy in an idyllic Bahamian setting, and where the hefty price tag includes a round-the-clock chef, ocean-side massages and spa treatments.

**Is superstar George Clooney crazy to spend $2.1 million on a new home for his assistant? "Life of Luxury" doesn't think so. The generous actor loves to share his wealth with his friends and associates. The show goes inside his Hollywood Hills estate, where he chills out with friends, and then jets to Italy to check out how George lives at his $10 million Italian villa on Lake Como.

**Looking for a new home? Why not come to Montecito, the pricey Santa Barbara-adjacent town where a starter home goes for $6 million? That was no problem for Oprah, who plunked down a whopping $50 million for her own slice of heaven. "Life of Luxury" offers a look inside this small and elitist town of 17 billionaires.

"Life of Luxury" is from Andy Friendly Productions. Andy Friendly is executive producer and Krysia Plonka is co-executive producer.
