Stagione 1 of the WE tv show debuted this summer and documented Lopez’s journey to build and design her beauty salon based in Las Vegas, Nevada, which specifically caters to all bodies. The series also chronicled her weight loss and her journey of learning how to walk again after losing 400 libbre. Lopez shared in the trailer of the show that lei pesava 846 libbre at one point in her life.
Speaking to Yahoo Beauty in 2017, Lopez opened up about her reason to launch her business.
“I was inspired by there being no place I could get my nails or hair done in Vegas that would accommodate my needs as a plus-size woman, and I decided it was time to make some changes for the plus-size women of the world,” ha detto all'outlet in quel momento.

“It makes me very upset to be mistreated because of my size, and not have a place where I can get beautiful,” lei disse. “When women walk away from getting services done at my salon, I want them to feel beautiful, sicuro di se, and sexy.”
