After the first season came to an end, the fans felt a connection with the “Baywatch”-style babes and the bronzed businessmen on the show. But nobody received more attention than the Manager of the Hollywood salon, Nick D’Anna, and Sunset Tan’s sales associate, Ania Migdal. Nick and Ania fell in love on the first season and will be back for round two in the second season.
“The new season is going to be bigger and better with more drama, more travel and more trouble,” Nick says. “It’s getting the characters out of the salon and into their homes.”
Unlike many “celebreality” shows, Nick says everything on “Sunset Tan” is authentic – especially the fact that he and Ania are madly in love.
However, Nick admits that reality television is, in fact, an altered reality. It’s all edited to spur more drama so that ratings can soar and money can be made.
“I feel like I am portrayed fairly accurately because I don’t take too much bullshit,” Nick says. “Ania gets a bad reputation, though, because of the way it’s edited. She’s actually very humble and not a spoiled brat at all.”
The first season ended with Nick and Ania on the rocks, and picks up right where they left off. But viewers will quickly see that the couple is still going strong.
Nick will be busy working on franchising Sunset Tan while Ania is starting her own fashion line called Lock-It.
“Having my own clothing line has been my dream since I was a baby,” Ania says. “The show was just a catalyst.”
The second season of “Sunset Tan” premieres Aug. 3 on E! at 10:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.sunsettan.com.
