Meet The Cast Of 'Sweet Life: Los Angeles'

It’s giving young, Black, and successful.

Culture & Entertainment

Sweet Life: Los Angeleshas been renewed for a second season, and now is the perfect time to catch up on past episodes. Produced by Issa Rae, the reality series follows seven young, Black, and poppin' creatives based in South LA. What’s unique about the show is that it gives a really authentic view of what it’s like to balance friendships and relationships while trying to make your dreams come true.


And the cast does everything full speed, from enjoying extravagant events to owning thriving businesses, they live life to the fullest. But, let’s be honest—there’s a bit of drama, too! And while you’ll likely be happy with how the cast is represented on screen, you might still yell at the TV every now and then because some of your favorite characters will definitely disappoint you from time to time.

To get a better idea of what I mean, check out Sweet Life: Los Angeles on HBO MAX. But before you do, get to know the cast:

After all, I was in the fourth grade when my brother was born and spent much of my adolescence helping my parents take care of him. My experience with children increased even more when I became an aunt eight times over. I regarded motherhood as something I didn’t have total knowledge of but suspected I wouldn’t be too far off the mark when the time came for me to have a child of my own. Little did I know that there was no amount of practice that could prepare me for what was ahead.

In xoNecole's Finding Balance, we profile boss women making boss moves in the world and in their respective industries. We talk to them about their business, and most of all, what they do to find balance in their busy lives.

Any time we can see ourselves on TV, holding court, taking up space, and being our most beautiful authentic selves while doing so, it's always a good look. And it's more than just magic.
