Shay appeared as herself in all three seasons of Bling Empire, which launched January 15, 2021 and ran through October 5, 2022 on Netflix.

According to Netflix’s description of the show, Bling Empire followed a wildly wealthy group of Asian and Asian American friends (and frenemies) in Los Angeles. While their days and nights are filled with fabulous parties and expensive shopping sprees, don’t let the glitz and glamour fool you. Between running multi-billion dollar businesses and traveling the world, these friends are as good at keeping secrets as they are at spilling them. And there is certainly no shortage of secrets. 

Brandon Panaligan served as showrunner and Jeff Jenkins, Ross Weintraub and Reinout Oerlemans executive produced the series. It was produced by Jeff Jenkins Productions, in association with 3BMG.

Shay also appeared on Celebrity Family Feud and was a presenter at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted.

Kelly Mi Li, who appeared alongside Shay on Bling Empire, posted a remembrance of Shay on Instagram, writing “RIP @annashay93…you are one of a kind and we will miss you forever.”
