Meghan is still incredibly close with her family. She actually moved all of them to Los Angeles with her when she made it big, with her brothers still living with her to this day. “They have their own side of the house — we call it the man cave — so I barely see them.

The new show follows the sibling rivals Gloria and Ines, played by Keyla Monterroso Mejia and Bryana Salaz, respectively. The girls and their friends, Demi, played by Ciara Riley Wilson, and Cameron, played by Tenzing, accidentally unleash a pretty horrifying curse that brings vast misfortunes to their lives.
