Um, how are Christine from Bling Empire and Mila Kunis friends?!

Mila just randomly shows up in season three of the show

Season three of Bling Empire has just landed on Netflix, and straight away in the first episode we have a no-context cameo appearance from an A-List celeb. Whilst out for dinner with her husband Dr Chiu, Bling Empire star Christine is randomly approached by the actual Mila Kunis, and they start chatting away like old friends.

Mila asks Christine about her kids and they chat away casually for a while before Mila leaves. It really is as though they’ve been mates for years. So, what is going on here? Has Christine, the Bling Empire queen of name-dropping, managed to keep a Hollywood friendship with Mila Kunis quiet? Surely not.

So, how are Christine from Bling Empire and Mila Kunis friends?

Dr Gabriel and Christine Chiu are actually former neighbours of Mila and her husband, Ashton Kutcher. The Chius do a lot of charity work, and have spoken about this in regards to their neighbours, too.

“Our former neighbours Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher stood up to raise awareness and funds for those affected by the war in Ukraine,” Christine told Tatler. “They committed to donating a large sum of money publicly and I applaud that because they leveraged their platform, reached exponentially more people and, of course, raised exponentially more funds.” She even hinted to the publication that Ashton and Mila would later be appearing on Bling Empire.

The Chiu family reportedly lives in a $8.7million (£6.4million) home, located in LA. It has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a gym, media room, swimming pool and tennis courts. It looks as though this home is now away from where Mila and Ashton live, as in the conversation on the show Christine tells Mila “I haven’t seen you in so long,” and Mila replies “the neighbourhood misses you.”

Mila and Ashton live in a sustainable farmhouse in LA. In an Architectural Digest look inside the home, it’s described as being “built on a glorious hilltop site perched above the storied Los Angeles enclave.” The six-acre property accommodates a main house connected to a guesthouse and entertainment barn.

Season three of Bling Empire is available on Netflix now. For all the latest Netflix news, drops, quizzes and memes like The Holy Church of Netflix on Facebook.
