Who is Don Morris from 'Bling Empire'?

Don Morris is the husband of Bling Empire star Mimi Morris, making him one of the many Bling Empire spouses (like Dr. Chiu) featured in the series. As Mimi revealed in season two, they couple has been together now for more than 20 years and married for 10. 

In the show, 53-year-old Mimi said of her 70something husband: "I think most people thought I was pushing Don to marry me but no, I didn't want to marry him. I was already divorced once so I didn't want to make that mistake one more time but Don really wanted it. He was asking 'will you marry me?' every day. So he finally convinced me to say yes." Three years after getting married in 2011, they welcomed their only son, Skyler. 

Mimi Morris was born and raised in Vietnam where she had a tough childhood embroiled in war before making it to Los Angeles, where she worked hard to start a business and now lives a glamorous life with Don and their kids. However, Don's childhood was quite the opposite, as he was born the son of a wealthy businessman, a trait he has most certainly adopted as an adult.
