Daisy Lewellyn, style expert, TV personality and author
TV Guide Magazine: How do you bring in the big bucks?
Daisy: It's my job to help women pull out their inner celebrity no matter their body type or budget. I do this on shows like Wendy Williams and Dr. Oz, performing drab-to-fab makeovers on real women."

TV Guide Magazine: How do you expect the audience to receive you this season?
Daisy: You will see that although I do work in fashion, it's not just champagne days and Louboutin nights. I work really hard.

Geneva Thomas, style and pop culture journalist
TV Guide Magazine: Will we see any catfights on the show?
Geneva: You'll see my relationship, at times, implode with some of the women. As the youngest on the cast, I definitely went from really trusting to being disappointed and embarrassed by some of their manipulations.

Melyssa Ford, real estate agent
TV Guide Magazine: How do you bring in the big bucks?
Melyssa: I'm in the process of redefining myself by breaking from the entertainment industry [as a frequent model in music videos] and diving head first into the real estate industry. But I define myself as a Renaissance woman.

Melyssa: Drama, drama, drama! I attempt to solve the many conflicts that arise within the group.

Demetria Lucas, journalist, blogger
TV Guide Magazine: What milestones will we see this season?

Mica Hughes, model
TV Guide Magazine: What kind of relationship woes — either friendly or romantic — will we see on the show?

Brie Bythewood, real estate developer
TV Guide Magazine: How do you bring in the big bucks?
Brie: I'm a one stop shop for all facets of real estate, from investing and building to buying and renting.
