[via press release from E!]


Los Angeles, December 19, 2013 - In the all-new can't-miss and fascinating E! Entertainment special, "Buying For Billionaires," viewers get a rare inside look the extravagant and oh-so-good life as E! follows three luxury lifestyle experts as they attempt to search for rare and expensive items for their outrageously wealthy and extremely demanding clientele. With the less-than-subtle pressure of their very powerful clients, the three industry titans go to extensive lengths to earn their commission searching for one-of-a-kind items, such as a bedazzled Berkin bag, vintage wine, and the elusive golden caviar. The one-hour E! Entertainment special, "Buying For Billionaires," premieres Thursday, December 26th @ 9:00pm ET/PT only on E!

Follow the extravagant, and at times ridiculous, lives of these three luxury buyers as they do whatever it takes to service the over-the-top requests of their fabulously wealthy clients. The buyers include:

Nicole Pollard: "In this business, I don't care what it is - money talks. It's about pleasing my clients at any cost."

Personal shopper to the richest people on the planet. Nicole frequently uses a $20k a day suite at the swanky Beverly Wilshire Hotel to meet her clients and boasts that she can deliver ANYTHING... for a price. Nicole's newest client, Taryn Rose - shoe designer, orthopedic surgeon, online boutique creator and entrepreneur - has tasked Nicole with nabbing the perfect I-have-arrived statement bag for the launch of her new website. With more than a few hiccups along the way, Nicole attempts to pull out all the stops to create the most eye-catching, diamond adorned custom bag - just in time for the event.

Deborah Keane: "Watching them eat the caviar off their hands... and how satisfied they were... makes it all worth it for me. That, and the money."

Fine caviar dealer and self-proclaimed "Caviar Queen," Deborah has clients who pay up to $2.5k an ounce. Deborah is charged with providing golden caviar, the most exquisite caviar from a fish so rare it's almost mythical, for the refined taste of her famous client's teenage son. In this case, Deborah's celebrity client is FJ Husic, son of billionaire investor and television commentator, Frank Husic. FJ is leaving for boarding school and his parents want only the best for his going away soiree. In pursuit of the impossible, Deborah finds herself in a number of strange encounters just to secure the caviar - including being waist-deep in slime-filled waters and performing biopsies on dangerous prehistoric sturgeon.

Melissa McAvoy: "I'm going to find the wine that he wants and charge him double the commission. Let's call it a jerk tax."

A luxury wine broker who is not afraid to use her sex appeal to close the perfect deal. With a list of cliental that includes royalty, billionaires and celebrities, requests for the rarest of wines range from $250k to $500k per bottle. Melissa's current client, billionaire investor and self-titled "serial entrepreneur" Chris King, has a big bank account with an ego to match. Chris is throwing an over-the-top birthday celebration for his equally rich and powerful friends, and needs the perfect wine to display his impeccable taste. Sporting a $600k watch and a dozen Rolls Royces, it's all about status and bragging rights for Chris. With the added obstacle of Chris's fickle ways and the competing pressure of his close relationship with other wine aficionados including the Mondavi family, Melissa knows she has her work cut out for her. Yes, she perseveres on an elusive search for the wine fit for a King

Can Nicole find a one-of-a-kind, flashy purse that solidifies Taryn's place on the social spectrum? Will Deborah deliver the unicorn of all caviar or will her reputation be tarnished forever? Can Melissa overlook Chris' rude and obnoxious ways to deliver the ultimate, impactful wine collection he is so adamantly seeking? Tune-in to find out when the E! Entertainment special, "Buying for Billionaires" airs Thursday, December 26th at 9:00pm ET/PT on E!

The E! Entertainment special, "Buying for Billionaires," is executive produced by Brian Volk-Weiss and Amber Mazzola for New Wave Entertainment.
