In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Cherie revealed Covid-19 has stalled their wedding planning.

Cherie told The Sun: “We definitely didn’t plan anything yet because of Covid, we don’t want to have a Covid wedding. We can’t set a date! All my friends who had a wedding planned in 2020 had all canceled.”
Though the Bresatech and Religion Tequila owners haven’t set a date, Cherie admitted they have been planning their big day since before the proposal.
The denim empire heiress said: “We looked at venues and talked about it even before I proposed to him. Jessey and I have talked about proposing and have looked at engagement rings throughout our whole relationship.
“We’re going in opposite directions! Usually people propose first, but we talked about it before the proposal.”
On Bling Empire, Cherie, who shares daughter Jadore and son Jevon with Jessey, asked him when he plans to propose.
By the finale episode, she popped the question herself at the 100 days party to celebrate their son’s 100th day birthday.
Cherie, who also coped with the passing of her beloved mother this season, said of her decision to propose: “I knew my mom wanted that closure. I was waiting and waiting for Jessey to propose. The timing was always off so I went ahead and proposed to him.
“Honestly, whether or not I proposed to him or he proposed to me, I knew we were going to be together because we’re so compatible, we have a great relationship. He’s been through so much with me and I’ve been through so much with him. Relationships are all about compatibility. I’m grateful for him.”
When asked if Jessey plans to pop the question himself in the future, she responded: “I don’t think it’s sitting well for him that I proposed to him. We’ll see! Who knows!”
Aside from Bling Empire and raising two children, the couple is focused on their businesses Bresatech and Religion Tequila.
She told The Sun: “Right now we’re really focused on Religion Tequila and Bresatech. Our family is in furniture and textiles. We’re very focused on building a legacy for our children. We don’t want to rely on our families.”
Despite Bling Empire’s success, Netflix has yet to renew the show for a second season.
Cherie said they “don’t know” if they would return for another season if the series is picked up.

She explained: “We’re thinking. We don’t know just because it’s so different for us. I can’t believe I have fans now. They definitely want to see us back, they want to see how our relationship is going to play out, how the wedding might happen. We should be back!
“It’s tough. As a mom I’m really worried about the kids. It’s stressful being a mom. It’s great, but it comes with a lot of mom wanting to protect her child. I had no idea it was going to be this big!”
Bling Empire is currently streaming on Netflix.
