Get Ready To Meet *Real-Life* Crazy Rich Asians In Netflix's 'Bling Empire'

'They have the whole world at their disposal!'

If you're looking for a new reality show to obsess over, then Netflix's Bling Empire might just be the right fit for you because it's all about the rich and famous Asians of L.A.! Think of the characters from Crazy Rich Asians, but this time, it's not fiction anymore. 

What's it about, exactly? 

According to Netflix, Bling Empire "follows a wildly wealthy group of Asian and Asian American friends (and frenemies) in Los Angeles. While their days and nights are filled with fabulous parties and expensive shopping sprees, don't let the glitz and glamour fool you. Between running multi-billion dollar businesses and traveling the world, these friends are as good at keeping secrets as they are at spilling them. And there is certainly no shortage of secrets." 

Is there a trailer? 

Yup, the trailer was released on January 8 and tells us that "this empire was born to rule!" It's every bit as *craaazy* as we expected: we see them partying (A LOT), casually talking about big fashion brands, mentioning super expensive apartments, and there's even one clip where they're gushing over a little girl who's WEARING DIAMONDS.
