A new reality program called The Culpo Sisters premiered on TLC. The new reality show is about three sisters called Olivia, Sophia, and Aurora who live in Los Angeles and “stand out in the ultra-competitive world of content creation while navigating love, heartbreak and sibling rivalry,” according to the show’s official description.
Their parents, Peter and Susan, also feature as the audience accompany the stunning trio on their adventures. They also have two brothers – Gus and Pete. Page Six reports that Peter has opened several restaurants in the Boston area, while Susan is a well-known violinist who has played for various groups, including the Boston Symphony and the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra.
“What are their careers? Don’t ask their parents Susan and Peter – they wouldn’t be able to tell you! For the first time, the three sisters are opening up their homes and hearts in an intimate, no-holds barred and playfully entertaining way,” says another of the press releases for the TLC show.
