Style gets an intimate look into the glamorous lives of Julissa Bermudez ("106 & Park") and Adrienne Bailon ("The Cheetah Girls") -- two of America's sexiest up-and-coming Latina actresses -- in this new docu-series. Viewers will follow this savvy young duo as they hit the streets of New York to build their entertainment careers and attempt to find true love, all while maintaining their fabulous lifestyle and enviable social calendar. In the series premiere, Julissa struggles to lose her thick Dominican accent to appeal to more mainstream America.

"Tia & Tamera" -- Monday, June 11 at 8pm ET/PT
The hit docu-series returns to follow the identical twin sisters as they face the realities of motherhood and matrimony, and Tia and Tamera lean heavily on each other to lighten the difficult moments with comedic insight and advice and to share their worries and fears. In the second season premiere, Tia adjusts to life back in Los Angeles as a full-time mother while she struggles to get out of the self-imposed bubble of isolation she has found herself in since birthing Cree. After Tamera throws her a "welcome home" party, Tia realizes how important it is to get out and socialize with friends so she sets out to find a Mommy & Me class for her and Cree. Tamera is splitting her time between Napa and Los Angeles with her husband and takes offense when Tia expresses doubt that Tamera will be committed to her career. Her feelings are hurt even more when a new business idea with her sister is put on the backburner because Tia books a movie in Utah – and doesn't tell Tamera.
