Curvy Girls New Season to Premier June 11, 2013

Cast of Curvy Girls, Season Two


Kimora Lee on Season Premiere, June 11 at 10 PM ET

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 3, 2013) – NUVOtv’s highest-rated original reality series CURVY GIRLS returns to strut its stuff for an exciting second season on Tuesday, June 11 at 10PM ET. Returning to New York City this season with gorgeous plus-size models Denise, Lornalitz, Ivory and Rosie, we follow these curvy girls as they juggle their professional and personal lives and offer an all-access pass into what it is like to be a curvaceous model in a skinny girl world.

In an all new twist, the curvy girls welcome special celebrity guests who mentor and guide them and offer up advice and tips on their careers and personal lives. The girl’s heat things up this season and life gets even sexier as the cameras tag along for sizzling photo shoots in amazing locations around the globe including New York, Las Vegas, Puerto Rico and Los Angeles.

Just like last season, the women can’t seem to control their feisty competitiveness; will they accept the new model as one of their own? Or will they all turn their back on her, adding to the already escalating catty competition? The show will continue to follow each woman’s personal journeys of self-discovery: will Lornalitz finally be lucky in love? What’s the secret from Ivory’s childhood that uncovers a bombshell? Will Denise get her fashion design aspirations off the ground? Has her long-lost father been found? How is Rosie juggling her booming career with motherhood? Will she be able to manage modeling while maintaining her business?

“We’re thrilled to have CURVY GIRLS back with all new stories that continue to document the trials and tribulations of the fabulous women. It’s a strong show for us that reflects the network’s promise to showcase the Modern Latino experience,” said Bill Hilary, NUVOtv’s Head of Programming. “Viewers can expect even more excitement in season two: new faces, surprising developments, unexpected revelations and certainly, more drama!”

Friendships are forged and broken, personal trials and celebrations, love on the rocks, family secrets… it’s a can’t-miss season of CURVY GIRLS with new challenges and triumphs, some fresh faces, and unchartered paths in work and love. CURVY GIRLS offers up an all-access pass into the lives of these fierce and fascinating women striving for their dreams. Honest, real and captivating, it’s a no-holds-barred look at the adventures of the models on their paths to achieving success.

Tune into NUVOtv on June 11th at 10 PM for the season 2 premiere of Curvy Girls.
