When the fabulous Dorothy Wang showed up in season two of Netflix’s Bling Empire, we knew we were in for a treat.

Riding on that excitement months later, Netflix has since unveiled its first official Bling spin-off that will feature the uber-wealthy Asian-Americans in New York City – with Wang leading the pack as she adjusts to her new life from sunny LA.

Bling Empire: New York will have seven official cast members. As seen in the trailer, it promises to offer the same glitz and glamour as its OG series with plenty of drama, of course, as Wang says, “In New York, anything can happen.”


As we wait for Netflix to announce the official release date, let’s get to know the new cast members, from what they do to their estimated net worths …

1. Stephen Hung, 63

Hong Kong business tycoon Stephen Hung and his wife Deborah are joining Wang in the Big Apple. He made much of his jaw-dropping US$400 million fortune through investment banking and real estate, per Celebrity Net Worth.

In 1992, he launched his own private investment firm called SH Capital Group and he is also the vice-chairman of Rio Hotel & Casino in Macau, per his LinkedIn page. His parents have also made billions from real estate deals.

However, Hung suffered major losses when his ambitious hotel project called The 13 failed due to constant delays and overblown budgets.

If his US$1.4 billion project were to come true today, the luxurious hotel in Macau would have 200 large suites (of up to 30,000 sq ft), 24-hour butler services for every room, a fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms and accommodation costing about US$100,000 per night, according to reports. Hung departed from the project in 2018.

Despite this, we are excited to see Hung, 63, in the new spin-off as his eccentric fashion sense, OTT lifestyle and larger-than-life persona will be massively entertaining to binge-watch.

The Mexican model, lawyer and wife to Stephen Hung is already a regular face in fashion weeks and high society events, thanks to her OTT designer duds and totally lavish lifestyle. What’s more, she’s personal friends with Hollywood’s crème de la crème of celebs like David Beckham and Salma Hayek. (We can’t help wondering – will they make a cameo in Bling Empire: New York?)

The beauty, who’s around 39 years old per Famous Birthdays, also founded an Asian and European modelling agency called Dreamodels. Perhaps her most iconic asset is her personalised hot pink Rolls-Royce, which has a name plate that reads “Deborah”.


Deborah and Stephen have two children: Ivan and Sean. With her hubby’s U$400 million net worth, it’s no wonder Deborah lives such an extravagantly fabulous lifestyle. As heard in the trailer, together the Hungs are dubbed as “master networkers”.

Our beloved Dorothy Wang, 34, has already established herself as the reality show queen bee with Rich Kids of Beverly Hills (2014-2016), Famously Single (2017) and Fetch Me a Date (2019). It’s about time she gets a lead role with Bling Empire: NYC.

The daughter of the former Golden Eagle International Group CEO, Roger Wang, is also an entrepreneur with a jewellery line, Fabulux, and a champagne brand called Rich and Bubbly. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she has a fortune of about US$10 million, although her father Roger is estimated to be worth US$2.6 billion, per Forbes.

In an interview with In the Know, Wang said she moved to NYC because “everything in LA was a little bit boring for me and got a little too easy” and because she wants to be more of an enigma. “I wanted to be a little bit more anonymous, start over, date new guys, meet new people and not have such a reputation,” she said.

4. Tina Leung, 40 (approx)
