NEW YORK, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — When MTV Tr3’s viewers left Karli Henriquez last season, her namesake show “Karlifornia” was generating enormous buzz among young Latinos for the show’s tell-it-like-it-really-is look at living in a bilingual and bicultural world. In season two of “Karlifornia,” which premieres on August 19th at 4pm and 9pm, Karli’s thriving television and radio career is balanced by her abuelita’s reminders to remember her roots and to get married, soon! Karli kicks off the season celebrating her birthday with a star-studded night at one of L.A.’s hottest clubs and figuring out how she’s going to tell her boyfriend he may not be able to walk the red carpet with her.
“I’m in a place I could only dream of, an 818 Valley girl now going to VIP parties and big red carpet events on the other side of the hill, but there’s a lot to balance and figure out,” says Karli.
Since debuting last November, “Karlifornia” has followed Karli, the quintessential Angelina, as she opens up about growing up in L.A., her personal life, family, dating and more. Her rapid ascent into the world of personalities to watch has Karli trying to balance things like her family, boyfriend, friends and school. Season two of “Karlifornia” sees Karli trying to straddle her Latino-ness and American-ness, her radio gig and her television duties, her love life and her demanding career that constantly has her on the move. Plus, her Mexican and Salvadoran family is doing all they can to help Karli keep it real.
Fans can get to know Karli even better by visiting karlifornia.mtvtr3s.com, where they can watch full episodes of the show, browse behind-the-scenes photos, and read making-of-the-show chisme on Karli’s “My Barrio” blog.
