Although the Netflix premiere is January 20 for most countries, some might not be able to access the show as easily. That's when to consider a VPN (opens in new tab), which allows you to change your IP address so you can browse anonymously and change your IP address so that your mobile, computer or laptop thinks it's in another location.

When does 'Bling Empire: New York' premiere?

What is 'Bling Empire: New York' about?

From catwalks to private jets, Bling Empire: New York will feature all the glitz and glam we've become accustomed to in California...but across the country. Expect a familiar face and new acquaintances to hit your screen.

Things will be intense for the group and all those who will be tuning in. Per Netflix: "Meet a fresh group of wealthy, sophisticated and hilarious Asian-Americans from New York City, where the quality of real estate is measured by address, not acreage. Conversations are direct, not coded. And competition—for love, for money, and for power—is fierce."

We'll zoom in on Dorothy Wang as she searches for love and tries to figure out who she can count on in the new place she calls home. But as you might've guessed, a cross-country move isn't so simple, even when big bucks are involved.

"My move to New York is actually a lot harder on me than I thought," she said in confessional. "I typically can handle a lot and I'm kind of like a one-woman show. I can usually do a lot."

She revealed to Town & Country (opens in new tab) that the lifestyle in New York is much different than in Beverly Hills. Plus, she admits it makes for exciting TV, so we're particularly excited.

"We definitely go out more. It's not so much hosting lunches or dinners at our homes with gift bags but more heading out on the scene, going to events, parties and fashion shows. It's a much faster-paced show," she told the publication. 

But what about the friend group we're soon going to meet? While back on the West Coast, Wang revealed to E News (opens in new tab)! that the Bling Empire cast was a bit tougher to mingle with than the cast of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills: "I think with this [Bling Empire] group, everything's a little bit more behind the scenes, like, calculated and maneuvered and thought out."

We wonder what she'll have to say about her New York peers!
