“In New York, anything can happen.”
If you loved Netflix’s hit reality show Bling Empire, you’re going to love the newest spinoff, Bling Empire: New York, which drops Jan. 20. The show will revolve around Bling Empire season 2 alum, Dorothy Wang as she adjusts from L.A. life to the Big Apple. But of course, all the glitz and glamour that makes the show a hit won’t be going anywhere.
In fact, Dorothy and six new affluent cast members will be taking on the challenges of New York together. In the trailer, Dorothy can be heard saying, “In New York, anything can happen,” and considering all the drama that’s to come, she’s probably being serious. Personally, I can’t wait to watch these billionaires, CEOs, and fashionistas take on high-society life in the greatest city in the world and compete for power.
So, aside from Queen Dorothy, who are the other cast members everyone will meet on screen, and how did they get so successful? From an editor-turned-reality-star to a CEO running one of the hottest jewelry lines, read on for everything there is to know about the new cast of Bling Empire: New York.

Dorothy is the daughter of self-made billionaire businessman Roger Wang. She has her real estate license and previously worked at The Agency with Kyle Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky, Ask Men wrote.
If she looks familiar, it’s because she appeared on Bling Empire season 2, Famously Single, and Rich Kids Of Beverly Hills. “NEW YORK CITY, I’M HERE ! 🍎🗽💎🥂,” she wrote in the shows promo video. Fun fact: she also runs a website, DorothyWang.com, where she writes about her travel experiences and tips.

In the trailer for the series, Tina is described as a fashion “It girl.” And if you take one look at through her social media, you’ll know that the label is spot on.

Deborah is the wife of Stephen Hung, and together, they’re referred to as “master networkers.” Sounds about right for an NYC power couple.
