The show will explore the lavish lifestyle of Morell and her fellow BAPs Kristen, Gina, Jason, Riccarda and Brandon. They view each other as family, but the desire for success often puts their relationships to the test. In a world where there is no shortage of social events, the same can also be said of egos.

“Kanye and Beyoncé have nothing on us,” said Morell of their exclusive group.
