The Style Network gets an intimate look into the glamorous lives of Julissa Bermudez (“106 & Park”) and Adrienne Bailon (“The Cheetah Girls”) — two of America’s sexiest up-and-coming Latina actresses — in the new docu-series “Empire Girls: Julissa & Adrienne.” Viewers will follow this savvy young duo as they hit the streets of New York to build their entertainment careers and attempt to find true love, all while maintaining their fabulous lifestyle and enviable social calendar.
As they strive to overcome challenges on their path to personal and professional harmony, Bermudez and Bailon are determined to achieve their goals before their 30th birthdays, which are right around the corner. By combining their will power and talent to beef up their resumes and fledgling celebrity status, they hope to double their chances of success! However, will it be enough to gain the stardom and stature they so desperately crave?
Bermudez and Bailon met in 2006 on the set of the MTV feature film “All You’ve Got.” While filming, they developed a close bond and have remained steadfast friends, united by their shared Latina heritage and desire to make it big in entertainment. Energetic and headstrong, Bermudez’s current professional goal is simple – to become the Latina version of Tyra Banks. Bailon, on the other hand, wants to be seen as an acting, singing and dancing triple threat like Jennifer Lopez, but she desperately needs to shed her child-star past in order to reach her goal.
While their careers are very important, they ultimately take a backseat to these single girls’ quests for true love. Unfortunately, their journey so far has been fraught with complications. Bermudez’s desire to date star athletes constantly ends in heartbreak and puts her at odds with Bailon who implores her to consider other options. However, Bailon has her own share of boy issues as she looks to move on from her past relationship with Rob Kardashian. Will this pair be able to have it all – a great boyfriend, successful career and the free time to still hit the nightclubs? They will need each other more than ever as they prepare to work, love and play hard in the Big Apple.
