What is Bling Empire season 3 about? 

So far, Netflix has gone on record to say of the new season: 

"...Viewers will finally learn why someone’s ex is crawling back with a bouquet of flowers in hand.

"Picking up where we last left LA’s fabulous and (mostly) wealthy Asians, the tension is at an all-time high in this friend group — but that won’t stop them from living their best lives. After a failed fling with Kevin Kreider, Kim Lee is off to Vegas in the upcoming season to continue her successful DJ residency. As for the other cast members, Kane Lim books a major fashion campaign, while Christine Chiu takes Kevin to Paris Fashion Week to help him rekindle an old flame. They don’t call Paris the 'city of love' for nothing."

Knowing this, let’s revisit where the group actually left off. For starters, after Christine attempted to confront Anna over a rumor that still doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, two things came to light. First, the recent tension between the rivals was stirred by Kane’s hand, and for once Christine and Anna seemed in agreement over wanting to take him to task. Second, it was inferred the initial rumor that Christine seemed to hear in regard to Anna’s "threats" came from Jaime Xie. Given Jaime and Anna are close friends, this would be a big betrayal if proven true. 

Then there’s Kevin. Despite all of his efforts to prove himself to Kim, he wasn’t able to capture her heart. This was in part again because of Kane’s involvement. Despite Kevin supposedly being Kane’s BFF, Kane was quick to plant a seed in Kim’s mind that Kevin was not to be trusted. The Bling Empire audience will have to see how Kevin is able to proceed in relationships with both of them. 

Now in terms of the "ex crawling back," that was Andrew Gray showing up at Anna’s in the season 2 finale. The last time viewers heard of Andrew, his ex Kelly Mi Li was talking about the two’s split. To date, no explanation has been offered in regards to his return, so this will definitely be a must-watch storyline going forward.
