Move over, Kardashians — there’s a new super rich family we all want to binge-watch. HBO Max’s House of Ho follows the daily lives of the Ho family and their lavish Houston lifestyle. It’s a fun mix between Keeping up With the Kardashians and Crazy Rich Asians, and we can honestly already see ourselves becoming low-key obsessed.
The series premieres on HBO Max on July 16, but if you need a quick primer before you start watching, here’s a brief introduction to the House of Ho cast!
Meet the ‘House of Ho’ Cast!
As we already mentioned, House of Ho follows the Ho family. That family is made up of three separate generations. At the top of the family tree is dad, Binh Ho and mom, Hue Ho. Forty-five years ago, Binh and Hue immigrated to the United States from Vietnam. They had very little money but were determined to work hard in order to create a successful and prosperous life for themselves. (Spoiler alert: They totally did that.)
Over the past several decades, the Ho matriarch and patriarch have established a multi-million-dollar bank, a real estate development company, and a, of course, their family! Binh and Hue settled in Houston, Tex. and raised their kids there. They have a close relationship with their adult children (we’ll meet them in a sec) as well as their grandchildren. Of course, there’s still plenty of room for drama — after all, they are making a television show, right?
According to Deadline, Binh has nothing but good intentions, but can sometimes come off as wanting to control every move his adult children make. Hue, on the other hand, is quick to rush to the defense of her kids, claiming they can do no wrong. Can’t wait to see how that plays out!
Then we have Washington Ho, Binh and Hue’s youngest child. Washington claims he is a “former” playboy, but is now settled down. He married his wife Lesley back in 2015, and they have two children together: a 4-year-old son named Roosevelt and a 2-year-old daughter named Lincoln (looks like they really took to the presidential names).
Washington definitely seems to enjoy his public-facing persona. He regularly posts to Instagram with updates about what he and his family are up to, whether that be visiting the local zoo, sampling the finest Houston cuisine, or upgrading the kids’ mini cars.
Next up is Binh and Hue’s oldest child, daughter Judy Ho. Judy seems to be the most private of her family members (though we’re guessing that could change if the show really takes off). She’s a lawyer and mom of three. Something tells us there’s going to be a fun dynamic between Judy and Washington — who doesn’t love watching a little bit of sibling rivalry?
Other family members also make appearances on the show including Aunt Tina — who seems to thrive on attention (and that’s putting it mildly) and cousin Sammy, Washington and Judy’s 29-year-old cousin who is trying to get her life a little more put together.
The first season of House of Ho features eight 30-minute episodes and can be streamed on HBO Max. We are so in.
