Premieres June 11th, 10PM (ET) on nuvoTV

Curvy Girls Season 2 expect things to get even sexier and even more glamorous. Denise, Lornalitz, Ivory and Rosie are living the life in New York City and rocking the fashion world at sizzling photo shoots and amazing locations. But it just wouldn’t be Curvy Girls without all of the drama that follows these gorgeous divas… with the friendships forged and broken, love on the rocks, family secrets, plus the entrance of a brand-new Curvy Girl in their midst! Wilhelmina model and former American Idol semi-finalist Joanne joins the ranks, but will the girls accept her as one of their own?

Unlike the other modeling shows, this series follows full-figured Latina American models as they try to make it as curvy girls in a skinny girl world. With the constant pressure that “thin is in,” these girls offer up a new perspective on what it’s like to be glamorous and beautiful in your own skin. Of course being a full figured woman isn’t without its struggles…the women deal with broken hearts, difficult friendships and issues of criticism with their weight. In addition, our Curvy Girls talk about heritage, fashion, beauty, style and what it’s like to succeed as a plus-size model in a cut-throat industry.
