Who Is ‘Bling Empire’ Star Christine Chiu?
There’s a new reality TV show fighting to be on top, and Crazy Rich Asians inspired it. Bling Empire recently introduced Netflix viewers to some fabulous cast members living it up in LA with a ton of money to blow and not enough time to spend it. It’s the perfect series to live vicariously through while getting the scoop on team Anna and team Christine — the filthy-rich queens of LA.
So who is Bling Empire star, Christine Chiu?
The new hit Netflix series ‘Bling Empire’
Netflix’s new original Bling Empire has become a sensation on the popular platform, giving viewers an inside look into filthy-rich socialites in the Asian community. The fascinating cast includes competing L.A. queens, Christine Chiu and Anna Shay, Dr. Gabriel Chiu, former pop singer Cherie Chan, and her trust fund beau Jessy Lee, billionaire Kane Lim, entrepreneur Kelly Mi Li, narrator Kevin Kreider, and many more.
The most riveting storyline in Bling Empire so far is the juicy feud between Christine Chiu and Shay, who have known each other for several years but lost the spark that once connected them as actual friends.
Shay says in the first episode it’s because she acts different now, but “if Christine wants to play games, then bring it on.”
Christine Chiu knowingly sparks some drama at Shay’s dinner party after she wears a similar necklace, fumed by being seated at the other end of the table, and receiving “a paperweight.” The billion-dollar drama only gets better through the series, and so does their mischievous behavior.
The Queen of L.A. and where to keep up with the latest
You won’t find a more fabulous, elegant, socialite mom than Bling Empire star Christina Chiu. Everything she does is done big and with an array of fashionable outfits to show off. Not to mention jewelry that is so shiny it’s hard to look at — unless your Shay and sick of her name-dropping and bragging about her beautiful things, that is.
After hearing about her and Dr. Chiu’s immense struggles with infertility, fans have been glued to their little family. ‘Baby G,’ their little miracle, makes an appearance throughout the series, and fans can’t get enough. If you’re interested in more insight into the Chiu family, Christine Chiu is verified on Instagram as @christine_chiu88 and has countless family photos that will keep you busy for hours.
Are you team Anna or team Christine?
There has been nothing but talks of Shay and Christine Chiu’s feud since it aired on Netflix. Fans are invested in taking sides on who is Queen and staying tuned in to see who will ‘win.’ In an interview with ET, we get a deeper look into the feud straight from the two fan-favorite socialites.
When asked about the feud between the two Bling Empire stars, Christine Chiu responds, “I think she enjoys the game playing, and I’m a happy participant.” On the other hand, Shay says it’s Christine Chiu’s insecurity that plays a significant role in them constantly going back-and-forth on the show, “I don’t need to prove anything to anybody. I am me. Not that I’m any better than anybody [but] I don’t need to prove anything [and she does].”
So What’s their hope for the relationship moving forward?
Christine Chiu says she hopes “they focus their energy, not even on friendship per se, but really on things that matter more,” and Shay responds, “It is what it is [and] it’ll become whatever it is.”
No matter what side you’ve taken, there’s no doubting the charismatic and feisty allure of Christine Chiu. And it makes it extremely hard not to hope the feud doesn’t end any time soon, just to see what she’ll do next!
