Christine Chiu has landed herself in the new hit Netflix reality show, Bling Empire. It follows a rich group of friends and socialites in LA so we're already itching to know if there will be a second season of Bling Empire.  This, however, is not the first time she’s been featured in a reality TV show.

Christine Chiu was once almost on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHOBH.) The Daily Mail reported on it back in 2014, when Chiu was spotted filming with Brandi Glanville in a restaurant.

It is not known whether she would have been a main housewife or a friend of, but she would have appeared in season five, alongside Glanville, Kim and Kyle Richards, Yolanda Hadid, Lisa Vanderpump, Eileen Davidson, and Lisa Rinna. She was apparently tested three times for RHOBH, but it's not known why she didn't make the cut. At least we get to see her on Bling Empire...

But fans haven't given up on the RHOBH dream for Christine and have taken to Twitter to say that she "could show many of the current cast members a thing or two about being a Beverly Hills Housewife!”

Many other fans are expressing their disbelief that she has never been on it. As she has already proven herself as Beverly Hills Housewife material. One Twitter user wrote: “Christine Chiu freakin reserved Rodeo Drive for her Chinese New Year party....why hasn’t she been on housewives?"

Now one of Bling Empire's show producers, Christine has thanked to fans for helping them reach the top ten spot on Netflix. She is swiftly becoming a fan favorite and giving a lot of content for memes with her expensive fashion couture and dramatic reactions. Not to mention the fact she only addresses her husband as ‘Dr Chiu', as her son as Baby G...

Her Instagram account is proof enough that she would indeed fit in well on RHOBH...
