Christine Chiu was born in Taiwan and is currently 39 years old. She was born and reared in Beverly Hills, and in 2006 she tied the knot with Dr. Gabriel Chiu. Reportedly at $80 million (£57.7 million), Christine and her husband Dr. Gabriel Chiu have a combined net worth of $80 million.
According to her bio, the reality star is also a “philanthropist, investor, and couture collector.” Christine said she wanted to exhibit more diversity in the industry, which is why she agreed to be on Bling Empire.
Diverse casts have been increasingly popular on both the little and the large screen. We saw this as a fantastic chance to join in on this movement,” she told OprahMag.com. At one point in its creation, “Bling Empire” was intended to be the first all-Asian ensemble cast in American television history.
Christine Chiu, star and producer of Netflix’s Bling Empire, discusses the show’s reception with her in-laws, her brush with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and her favorite memory from fashion week.
1. How She Currently Communicates with Her Own Family
The epidemic and the loss of my mother have taught me the value of family and the time we spend together. Every moment of it is priceless, as we never know if it may be our last. I’ve always attempted to steer my life toward something greater than myself, but recently, I’ve had the courage to reevaluate my priorities in light of the shortness of our lives here on Earth.
As a mother, wife, businesswoman, community champion, neighbor, and global citizen, I feel an increased need to make a positive contribution to the lives of others and to the world at large. Due to my strained relationship with my father, I have lost connection with most of my extended relatives. A community geared toward families would be the bare minimum I would look for in a school for my son. Despite my animosity against my extended family, I hope he grows up to have happy, loving relationships with them.
2. The Show’s Most Memorable Scenes
Unfortunately, several of the best parts of the show were cut from the final cut. Fun and memorable times were spent with Baby G and Dr. Chiu engaging in pursuits as diverse as a baby chef audition, sign language lessons, and French lessons.
3. How Bling Empire Is Not from Other Reality Series Like “Keeping up With the Kardashians”
Although network television docuseries have been around for a while and have enjoyed considerable success in their own right, I am pleased to be a part of a production with so many interrelated goals. In Bling Empire, superficial fixes are secondary to dealing with serious issues. The petty drama is fascinating, but it stays far above the belt. When it comes to escaping the brutal realities of the Covid-19 pandemic, cinematography is the most beautiful type of artistic escapism, and the shared experiences and stories are the most effective form of emotional escapism.
Traditional ingredients for successful network TV docuseries like table flipping, wig snatching, and charges against castmates’ families or children were absent from this season’s drama. Viewers were taken on an emotional roller coaster with Bling Empire, which was full of exciting surprises and dramatic developments. What makes this cast special is that we are all willing to bare our souls and reveal our deepest, darkest, most private challenges.
4. How To Cope with Being Labeled as The Show’s Antagonist
Numerous friends and family members called, texted, and emailed to express their dismay at my portrayal on the show. People would say things like, “This is not you!” or “how could they show you like that?” My loved ones have felt the need to defend themselves in front of acquaintances and complete strangers alike, explaining why this is not a true reflection of who I am. We were able to create a humorous but hotly contested, rivalry between a heroine and an antiheroine, and that helps me keep things in perspective.
5. Her Favorite Piece of High Couture
Christine Chiu‘s final Bling Empire interview outfit was one of my favorite pieces of haute couture. It is a Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda dress that was formerly on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and shown in the Heavenly Bodies exhibition in 2018.”
6. She Explains Why It’s Crucial that She Talk About Her Infertility
I was compelled to write about the challenges and successes of my own reproductive journey, which were exacerbated by traditional Asian social norms and cultural influences. I believed that by talking about this taboo subject, I may spark a conversation and specifically inspire encouragement, understanding, and support for people who are struggling. I wanted others who are going through what I went through to find solace in my triumph.
