What’s more in store from Bling Empire: New York?
Netflix states, “Conversations are direct, not coded. And competition – for love, for money, and for power – is fierce.”
A good mix of top-brass health professionals, actors, models and influencers have been roped in for the New York spin-off which is sure to give viewers a peek into the ultra-luxe lifestyle of the new set of these ‘crazy rich Asians’.
In the official clip by Netflix, we see Dorothy struggling to find a cab and she says to camera that “My move to New York is actually a lot harder on me than I thought. I typically can hand a lot and I’m a one-woman show and I can usually do a lot.”
She adds about her struggle to settle in New York, “The first two weeks I cried a lot. Things were just a lot harder than in LA.”
Earlier, in the teaser we caught a glimpse of the cast members, a lot of bling and the sneak peek into the drama we can expect. Dorothy is hoping to vibe more with New York guys than LA ones. We smell a romance coming.
