Bling Empire is back in a big way! As of today, Bling Empire season 2 is now streaming in full on Netflix. All eight episodes are available for fans to watch. But one thing almost everyone is thinking is whether or not Kelly Mi Li is back together with her ex-boyfriend, Andrew Gray.
Throughout the show’s first season, fans saw a lot of up-and-down with the volatile coupling of this pair. To put it bluntly, Andrew never seemed like the right match for Kelly due to his fiery temper and controlling nature. Fans were vocal in their distaste for the actor, who is best known for playing the Red Megaforce Soldier in Power Rangers Megaforce and a few other spinoff properties.
By the end of season 2, it looked like Andrew and Kelly were back together, and that was further confirmed off-screen through interviews shared in January 2021. But where do the two stand now, in Bling Empire season 2?
Bling Empire season 2: Are Kelly Mi Li and Andrew Gray together in 2022?
No. Good news for people who want better for Kelly, she and Andrew have officially called it quits. You might recall from the first season that the pair were together, then broke up, then seemed to rekindle their relationship before ultimately getting back together off-screen.
Last year, Kelly discussed her newfound relationship with Andrew and claimed they were better than ever. But as of May 2022, Kelly is single once again and Andrew is not featured in the second season.*
During a recent chat with Page Six, Kelly teased what fans could expect from the new season and provided an update on her dating life. She says that fans can anticipate seeing a much lighter, “fun” Kelly in season 2.
Throughout the first season, Kelly says she did not feel free to be herself because of Andrew’s fiery temper, something fans saw as early as the first episode and made most take an immediate disliking to the former Power Ranger actor.
After leaving the West Hollywood home she shared with Andrew for five years, Kelly has moved into a smaller, but still cozy, 2,000 square feet house that she’s in the process of renovating. She says she’s “exploring nature,” which she’s never had the chance to do before.
"“[The show] really kickstarted my self-discovery journey, and it was a really big shift for me. It was, at times, a little embarrassing, but it was really rewarding at the end. When I think of how many people I’ve connected to and what it did for Asian representation in the mass media — it’s bigger than myself.”"
*Bling Empire season 2 spoilers ahead
Andrew Gray does make an appearance at the very end of Bling Empire season 2 for one brief scene. He comes to visit Anna and Anna appears shocked by his arrival (Anna has never been shy about her dislike for Andrew).
His intentions are not disclosed and the scene ends rather abruptly on a cliffhanger. Based on Kelly’s recent comments, it does not look like the pair are rekindling their relationship again, but perhaps Andrew is trying anyway?
Bling Empire season 2: Are Kelly Mi Li and Kevin Kreider together in 2022?
No, they aren’t. Kelly’s co-star Kevin Kreider made it clear he had feelings for her during the show’s first season. He pursued her and even took her out on a date for a night of steamy salsa dancing at one point. But Kelly was still too invested in her relationship with Andrew to move things further with Kevin.
Things quickly fizzled out and by the end of the season, Kevin was trying to move on—possibly with another co-star, Kim Lee. But you’ll have to watch Bling Empire season 2 to see what, if anything, happens between them!
