Jessenia Vice "Vice & Everything Nice". The star of the
show, this NJ native has survived it all to get to this point.
An abusive crazy ex-boyfriend who almost took her life,
coming from a poor urban neighborhood and beating the
odds to become a successful nurse, and then rounding it
out by becoming one of the most recognizable Latin faces
in NY. This is about her struggle to change public opinion
and stereotypes once again and make the transition from
Urban Model to successful entertainer and music star. The
smart money is on this girl to win. From the hundred
thousand fans that span from her social media and website,
various television/web and magazine endeavors, and
support by Ciroc and countless music industry contacts,
Jessenia still remains down to earth, with the biggest heart
you could imagine. Partnering with Nick Slay and J. Dens to start her musical journey, she still finds time to help her best friend Kerish learn the ins and outs of this industry to become a model and future make up entrepreneur. Her run ins with Sally Ferreira,
Rosa Acosta, and Erica Mena make for interesting conversation but are not the defining moments in
this young Latina's career. Currently she is working on records with Latin Songwriter Carlos
Escalona (Paulina Rubio, Shakira, etc), Sinical an amazing Producer/Engineer out of NJ, and some
guest features to put together some incredible music.
"Mr. No brain mouth filter". This New Yorker
by way of New Orleans, is Strategic as he is impulsive and
brash. Nick was introduced to Jessenia through her
roommate D. Prados. He took the reigns as Jessenia's PR
and A&R after sharpening his teeth as the PR rep for
Ramona Rizzo of Mob Wives, and working with a number
of other signed acts and TV stars, he was the right man for
the job. Founder of nikoREIGN PR, he built a great
friendship with Jessenia becoming her confidant in all
matters of the heart, Nick maintains Jessenia's ability to
look like a model, but think like a businessman. No
stranger to struggle himself, Nick was born legally deaf and
overcame it all to receive a full music scholarship to Five Towns College (Adam Levine, Chrisette
Michele, Jared Cotter, Olivia, DJ Suss One to name a few attendees). It's there he earned his gift of Gab earning him the ability to talk to himself into his own radio show, A&R and songwriting, and
finally breaking in to public relations. Making friends with hit makers like J.Dens and super athletes
like Julian Talley are only the tip of the iceberg for this young entrepreneur who never holds his
tongue for no man. He is the glue that holds the show together being the shared connection for most
of the Make it NY crew.
The epitome of he Laissez-Faire culture in his personal life, he is a secret comic nerd and lost at
love. However, he holds his friends down like he holds his liquor, the one they all can depend on.
Kerish Harnett "Ms Good girl gone bad" is Jessenia's best friend and usually at the center for Jessenia's misadventures. Innocent with a heart of gold, she has a knack for getting into trouble and the reason for having a great story to tell the next day. This beauty is an International business student by day and model/makeup artist by night. Her skill as flawless as her curves, she is definitely gonna make it big one day.
Jessenia is schooling her on the ropes of this industry while tearing up NYC and MIA nightlife. Always on the search for love, her last exploit left her kissing Sean Comb's eldest son, and then blacking out to the best song ever. The sweetest person you would ever have with you to make midnight car ride to Philly with, you can
always find her right alongside Jessenia, Nick Slay, and J. Dens at the bar reliving one of her stories of the best J. Dens
"The Architect". You may know J.Dens as the super producer who discovered and created Kat Dahlia's hit single, "Gangsta" but there is much more than meets the eye. This Jersey native brought together his best friend Nikki, Kat Dahlia, and some musical ingenuity, the rest is
history. Few people have the vision to make this leap from nothing to something, yet he still remains the same guy we grab drinks with when it's time to party and bullshit. Stepping up to the next part of his career as a successful producer/songwriter, singer, and clothing designer, he lends his creative ear to help Jessenia Vice find her voice and her sound. You can always find J. Dens in the studio with Nikki and his musical big brother Synematic (who produces and engineers for the super production team Stargate). The man of a thousand tattoos, each one has a story for the journey of his life. His next big endeavor 7 Devils clothing. This tattoo lifestyle clothing brand is fueled by his friendships with different Suicide Girls and other tattooed models. Expanding into more than just T-Shirts and hats he will be a force to be reckoned with.
