Are you ready to get to know the Bling Empire: New York cast?

With the arrival of Bling Empire season 3, we were already feeling pretty darn spoilt, but now Netflix is giving us more glitz, glamour and drama—with a spin-off series in the Big Apple. Here’s what you need to know about the Bling Empire: New York cast and the offshoot's leading lady, Dorothy Wang.

Bling Empire: New York follows NYC’s richest and most elite Asian-Americans as they hunt for love, status and power. We see It girls rub shoulders with CEOs and entrepreneurs as they strut down the pavements of NYC's ritziest neighborhoods. 

For her part, returning star Wang navigates New York’s dating pool and fans get to watch the drama unfold from a fair few messy relationships to rival that between Kevin Kreider and Kim Lee. Consider us intrigued!

Here's the full line-up of the cast of Bling Empire: New York

1. Dorothy Wang

Born in Hong Kong and raised in Beverly Hills, Dorothy Wang is the daughter of billionaire Taiwanese real estate developer Roger Wang. Along with the O.G. Bling Empire, the 34-year-old has appeared on several reality shows, including Rich Kids of Beverly HillsFamously Single, and Fetch Me a Date

He also serves as the vice-chairman of Rio Entertainment Group in Macau, and has reportedly amassed a fortune of $400 million, per Celebrity Net Worth, which he seems happy to spend on designer clothes and luxury cars, according to his Instagram. 

3. Deborah Valdez-Hung

Married to Stephen Hung and mother to his two children, Ivan and Sean, is the Mexican model and lawyer Deborah Hung. Along with a lengthy runway career, the 39-year-old also owns Dreamodels, an Asian and European full-service modeling agency, which means she's a regular presence at high-end fashion shows. Her most prized accessory? A hot pink Rolls-Royce personalized with a "Deborah" license plate.

4. Tina Leung

Dubbed a fashion "It girl" in the Bling Empire: New York trailer, Tina Leung is a high-profile fashion blogger and stylist who splits her time between NYC and Hong Kong. Along with collaborating with luxury brands such as Prada, Loewe and Valentino, the 40-year-old fashionista also launched Era, a designer vintage retail service.

5. Blake Abbie

The 32-year-old Canadian got his start in the magazine industry as a photography assistant but has worked his way up to the role of editor-at-large of the indie mag A Magazine Curated By. Blake Abbie has also dabbled in acting (he appeared in the 2018 Chinese TV series Meteor Garden) as well as modeling, having recently made his runway debut at the 2022 New York Fashion Week walking for designer Peter Do. 

6. Lynn Ban

Already a glittering name in the jewelry business—the Singapore-born 49-year-old launched her first collection in 2011, attracting both high-end retailers (Barneys, Net-a-Porter) and celebrity fans alike (Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé are all clients)—Lynn Ban will be seen relaunching her eponymous jewelry brand in the first season of Bling Empire: New York

Prior to that, the NYU alum served as Senior Vice President at The Sleep Spa, the Director of Merchandise Planning at Calvin Klein and a Director at Hasten Beds.
