Bruno Mars’ sisters remind me of a Hawaiian version of the Kardashians. Their reality show on WE tv follows these Hawaii girls, as they break into the L.A. music scene; full of wit, talent and island flare, The Lylas are definitely worth keeping up with.
It’s quite clear from the first episode that these sisters want to escape their brother Bruno’s shadow; instead, hoping to make it on their own as The Lylas. Short for, “Love You Like A Sister,” Jaime, Tahiti, Presley and Tiara Hernandez have everything the next girl group needs. They can sing, dance and make funny impersonations of each other. In fact, it’s their silly sisterly ways that keep me watching every week.
Although they may have their share of cat fights, it all boils down to the love they share for each other, their family and for their home in the islands. The show bounces back and forth between L.A. and Oahu. In fact, the feisty quartet had their first performance at Ala Moana Shopping Center, where dozens of family and friends came to show their support.
The Lylas come from a musically-talented lineage. Their late mother Bernadette was a hula dancer and father Peter, a percussionist. As a family, they formed a group called the Love Notes, which inspired each child to pursue a career in music and show biz.
It’s always so cool to see people from Hawaii make it “big,” or at least chase their dreams outside of the islands’ constraints. Good luck to the ladies of The Lylas!
