If there's one constant in reality TV, adding new cast members always makes for a more exciting season. The second season of Bling Empire is no different.
Even though Mimi Morris is a newcomer, she is already getting a lot of attention because of her unique background and her lavish Instagram posts. Her humble beginnings in Vietnam set her apart from many of her castmates, who were born into wealthy families.
Her luxurious Instagram grid shows that she has done well for herself in the years since. People are already looking all over the Internet to find out more about this glam LA mom.
Who is Mimi Morris?
Well, Mimi Morris does everything. She has been a model, a business owner, and is now giving back to the community. E! News says that Mimi is one of seven children. The Tab says that the 52-year-old met season 1 cast member Christine Chiu through Chèrie Chan, and the two are now good friends.
Christine said that Mimi was “a firecracker” and that everything she said made her happy. Mimi often wears the newest designer clothes, and her Instagram is always full of bright, expensive photos of her life. Honestly, it does look great!
She's Lived Through a War
Mimi is from Vietnam, where she lived with her family before moving to Los Angeles. Even though she lives well now, that wasn't always the case. During the Vietnam War, Mimi and her family went through a lot of hard times. At one point, they even had to live in a hole in the ground for two years.
The family could only eat and drink very little. She and her family now live very well in Orange County, California. The Tab says that sources say her home cost a huge $8.8 million.
Her Husband Runs His Own Business as CEO
If you already follow Mimi on Instagram, you know that she loves posting photos of her family, especially her husband Don Morris. The age difference between them is 22 years, which makes him about 74. They have been together for about 20 years.
You could say that Don has done pretty well. Don started his own company, Morris Group International after he graduated from USC in 1969.
This company makes products for the non-residential construction market. Not long after that, Don went to another country and got a high-level job at the Acorn Engineering Company. According to The Cinemaholic, Don was made president in 1985 and CEO in 2003.
Don sold Acorn to Morris Group International in 2010, and he is still the CEO of the company to this day.
Mimi and Don Morris’ Net Worth
Don's assets and sources of income lead us to believe that he is worth about $800 million at the moment. On the other hand, Mimi's exact net worth is still a bit of a mystery. Still, it's been said that the couple's net worth as a pair easily tops $1 billion. Also, that number is likely to go up soon because Don's business is growing and Mimi is starting a reality TV show.
They Have Three Kids Together
Mimi and Don Morris are parents to three children. But the most common person to see on the couple's social media is their 8-year-old son, Skyler. So don't be surprised if he pops up in a few episodes here and there.
What Do Mimi and Don Morris Do for a Living?”
Don Morris, Mimi's husband, got an MBA in Finance from the University of Southern California in 1969. He then started his career with Elmco, which later became Morris Group International. But he soon moved on to run the part of the business that made things and became a leader at the Acorn Engineering Company.
Don was very smart and worked hard, so it didn't take him long to move up the organizational ladder. In 1985, he was made President. Don never stopped giving his all to the organization, even after he had a lot of success. In 2003, he was given a good reward for his hard work when Acorn Engineering Company made him CEO.
Reports say that under Don's leadership, Acorn grew and soon had many different product lines and divisions. Unfortunately, this made it hard for Don to do it all by himself. So, in 2010, he put the whole business under the control of Morris Group International, where he is now Chief Executive Officer.
On the other hand, Mimi, Don's wife, had a very hard childhood because she grew up in Vietnam during the war. According to the Netflix show, she tried to leave her village with her siblings when she was only seven years old, but they were caught.
So, the kids had no choice but to live in a big hole in the ground for two years, even though there wasn't enough water or food. But once Mimi got to the United States, she was determined to make it on her own. Mimi not only modelled for different brands, but she also started her own business and did well with it.
Even though it's not clear when Mimi and Don got married, the marriage was good for both of their net worths. Also, they are very proud of their three children. According to a report from 2018, the couple moved into a large home worth $8.8 million in California's Strand at Headlands.
Even though the couple has made a lot of money, they have stayed committed to their jobs. Don still runs Morris Group International with a lot of honesty and integrity. On the other hand, Mimi has a successful reality TV career and also works as a social media influencer, making deals with brands and endorsing them.
