"Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" is pulling out all the stops for the fourth season. The latest installment of the E! reality show features what stars are calling the realest (and rawest) season yet. Not only is the drama bigger than ever, but so is the cast.
Enter Bianca Espada, the newest member of the "Rich Kids" family. Espada came into the show thanks to her long-time friend and fellow "Rich Kid" Dorothy Wang. The series will follow her not only as she navigates both her withstanding and new friendships, but will also showcase Espada as she embarks on her burgeoning career as a stylist and fashion blogger. And although Espada may be the new girl on the block, she isn't letting that get in her way of putting her own spin on the show. She hopes to make the whole experience interactive, using her social media platforms as a way to engage with her fans during the shows (she'll even let you know where to copy her outfits as the episodes are airing on her Instagram). Even more importantly, she's hoping to showcase more diversity in "Rich Kids," giving viewers a glimpse at her Latina roots.
The fourth season of "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" will premiere on May 1st, but that doesn't mean you have to wait until then to get to know Bianca Espada. We recently sat down with the lifestyle blogger about her first reality television show experience, the one piece advice she would give the next newcomer, and the biggest thing she's learned about herself while on set.

How did you get involved with "Rich Kids?"
Well I was friends with Dorothy for a very long time. I grew up with Brendan, Morgan's fiancé, and my brother is the best man at their wedding. I've known Johnny for years too, so I've known almost everyone for a few years now except for Morgan. I don't know her that well.
I think people assume that you guys were thrown into this together. I'm curious to know how your pre-existing friendships changed while filming?
I think you have moments that are tough and you have to get through them, and it's even more difficult that they're on camera. But that being said, I think that this experience bonds you in a way nothing else can.
How long has the filming process been like for you so far?
It's been since almost December!
Wow! What has that been like for you? I'm guessing this is the first time you've had cameras in your life to that extent.
To that extent absolutely. I kind of pretend they're not there. It's a trip seeing yourself on TV though; that's so surreal. It's so odd. I'm excited, scared, nervous, but it should be something to look forward to.
Are you looking forward to watching yourself on television?
I mean I'm definitely going to watch it and it will be a guilty pleasure. I definitely say stuff that I probably shouldn't say at the time, so it will be interesting re-watching those moments. But I'm exited for it!
What can fans expect from this season?
A lot of honesty. There are also a lot big realizations for everyone and of course, a lot of drama. I think they are going to relate to this season's cast more than they ever did before because we all have our moments -- we all have our downfalls and issues, and we all go through emotional things. Because of that, this has to be the most relatable season yet.
What's your mindset going into the next stages of filming?
If I'm asked back to do another season and if I do decide to do it, my contract will definitely come with a therapist. It's a mind game for sure being on a reality show. Imagine an entire year of your life and the most dramatic moments of that year put into eight weeks. Your highs and lows are all on TV. As a newcomer that's a lot, but I've also learned how to handle it.
What is the biggest learned about yourself while filming?
I learned that I stand up for all of my friends and I'm the first person to be there for them. I'm a ride or die friend.
What's one piece of advice you wish you had received prior to filming?
It's going to get crazy but at the end of the day we're all still friends. I wish someone would have told me that but I didn't get that. If there's a new person, I'm going to be first person to reach out to them and say, "I know that this is going to be tough, but at the end of the day, we all have feelings and we all care about you, so we're excited to work together." I wish someone had been the bigger person and reached out to me to say that.
