The Entrepreneur

Katie Cazorla was born in Elmira, New York, and her determination to make it big inspired her move to Los Angeles. With her creative mind and an entrepreneurial spirit, Katie Cazorla established a highly successful nail salon.

She went to a cosmetic nail school and opened The Painted Nail in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles in 2009. Located outside of the W Hotel, the swanky nail salon quickly became popular. One reason could be because Cazorla’s clients can enjoy a glass of wine while getting their nails done!

Eventually, Katie Cazorla broadened her horizons as an entrepreneur and went on to launch her own line of nail products.

Reality TV Show

The uniqueness of The Painted Nail and Cazorla’s entrepreneurship skills caught the attention of Sally Ann Salsano, who produced Jersey Shore. Salsano approached Cazorla to star on a reality television show called Nail Files. The show followed Cazorla’s personal and professional life, occasionally featuring her fiancé, Walter Afanasieff.

She Had to Live out of Her Car

When Katie Cazorla was settling down with her new life in LA, she had to live out of her car! Before establishing herself in a new city, Cazorla faced hardships with grit and determination, and proudly wears them as badges now.

She Loves Taco Bell

The successful businesswoman hasn’t transformed in a hoity-toity socialite. After dining at the classiest restaurants, Cazorla still loves heading to Taco Bell. On one episode of Second Wives Club, she took Veronika Obeng to lunch at a Taco Bell drive-thru, where Obeng’s Rolls Royce ended up getting stuck!

That being said, Cazorla is opening a new café called Hi SocieTEA. She describes the restaurant as a mini tea bar, that serves artisan sandwiches and loose leaf teas. In one another episode of Second Wives Club, fans witnessed a hysterical Cazorla dealing with a major setback while trying to open her café, after discovering the kitchen had leaking water pipes. As a result, the café failed its health inspection, and Cazorla had to postpone its grand opening.

Katie Cazorla has been engaged to Walter Afanasieff, a Russian-American record producer and songwriter, for six years now. The couple have known each other for 11 years yet after such a long courtship, Cazorla hasn’t zeroed in on a wedding date!

It freaks me out,” Carzola said about the prolonged engagement. “What if I change my mind?” 

She later added, “If it’s good, don’t try to fix it. But I promised him and I want him to be happy.” No word on a date yet, but we’ll keep our ear to the ground for updates!
