The net worth of the ‘Bling Empire’ cast will leave you shocked

The movie Crazy Rich Asians (2018) gave the world an insight into the never-seen-before luxury lifestyle of the ultra-rich Asians. While the movie was based on a book of the same name, it grabbed attention with an all-Asian star cast, including Michelle Yeoh. Following this, Netflix’s hit series Bling Empire, which revolves around a similar theme, but in real life, was released in January 2021.

It chronicles the lives of young and extremely rich Asian Americans, who live in Los Angeles. The show became an instant success and the cast is much loved by the audience.

Post that, Bling Empire Season 2 was also dropped in May 2022 and after a blingy second season, the drama is back again for the third season, which was released on Netflix on 5 October 2022, and spans over ten episodes of 40 minutes each. While Chèrie Chan and her husband Jessey Lee are not reprising their roles, familiar cast members who are back with some more glam include Anna Shay, Christine Chiu, Guy Tang, Jaime Xie, Kane Lim, Kelly Mi Li, Kevin Kreider and Mimi Morris.

In this new season, characters analyse the revelations and relationships from the second season. Chiu goes deep with her fertility tests and Kreider embarks on his sobriety journey while searching for more information regarding his birth family. Besides these, all lavish possessions and high-end lifestyles of the characters make us wonder what these stars are worth.
