#Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star Morgan Stewart on wealth, fame and ambition
01 FEBRUARY 2014
Move over Made in Chelsea. #Rich Kids of Beverly Hills is a new TV series launching on E! that makes the Made in Chelsea stars look relatively cash-strapped.
Set in Los Angeles, #Rich Kids follows the lives of five fun-loving 25-year-olds, whose families are worth millions and billions.
Meet the cast: Roxy Sowlaty, Jonny Drubel, Dorothy Wang, Brendan Fitzpatrick and Morgan Stewart
One of the stars of the show, beautiful blonde Morgan Stewart leads an extravagant lifestyle, but told HELLO! Online that she realises how fortunate she is. "I'm someone who doesn't taken anything for granted," she said. "I have kept my feet on the ground."
"I think that viewers are going to have a very different opinion of us from the first episode to the last," added Morgan, who dates fellow #Rich Kids star Brendan Fitzpatrick. "You will see us evolve as people and realise that we all have issues. We all have insecurities."
Morgan, who has been described as the "sexy wild child of Beverly Hills", chats to HELLO! Online about her newfound reality TV fame.
The show has already launched in the US. What sort of reaction have you had?
"It's been positive – as people start watching the show they will begin to relate and fall in love with us as characters and people. I hope people will be pleasantly surprised by how we all are. "
You have had a privileged upbringing. How do you keep your feet on the ground?
"I think I am very blessed to be as fortunate as I've been. I have parents who support me no matter what and make me the person who I am today. I don't feel better than anybody because of the position that we are in. We have been raised to be very appreciative and we just want to make sure that we give back to people in a less fortunate position."
Coming into the spotlight, you are going to be subjected to positive and negative comments. How do you think you will cope with these?
"I have a little bit of anxiety but I'm prepared for whatever comes along. I have kind of grown up having to have a thicker skin, and I think all of us have be very comfortable within ourselves. We all thought 'Are we able to do this?' And we had to know who we were before anybody else judges us."
What makes you a good reality TV star?
"I have always been a creative person with a loud voice and wanted it to be heard. There has been a TV camera in my head for literally 25 years – so when they showed up physically I was really pleased."
Are there any misconceptions about you?
"I understand the title comes with a certain connotation but that doesn't define any of us. I mean we are no different to anyone else."
What has been your most extravagant purchase?
"I love clothes - I am really into clothing and extravagant when it comes to shoes!"
Are there other reality stars who you admire?
"I love all the Housewives, in particular Beverly Hills and Atlanta. NeNe Leakes is one of my favourites. She is such a strong character."
What are your ambitions?
"Currently it's to continue to make www.BoobsAndLoubs.com a big success and perhaps in time move into books and further TV projects."
Where would you like to see yourself in five years' time?
"BoobsAndLoubs.com is my main focus and wanting to continue to write. I see children and marriage in the future and be a happy well-centred person."
