Hurricane Katrina Victim and Organizational Queen Amanda LeBlanc Transforms Lives One Cluttered Room at a Time

LOS ANGELES - January 5, 2012 - Start the New Year out right with organization tips from Amanda LeBlanc and her team in The Style Network's new docu-series "The Amandas," which airs Monday, January 30 at 8:00pm ET/PT. This extreme perfectionist and organizational specialist leads a team of young and fashionable organizers to create meticulously functional living spaces with a focus on style and aesthetics. Having lost it all in Hurricane Katrina, LeBlanc knows firsthand what it means to live and thrive with less and helps her clients to let go of the past in order to create elegant, efficient and stress-free environments.

A wife, mom and entrepreneur, Amanda's desire for perfection has turned her obsession with organization into a lucrative business and growing empire. With her mini army of "Amandas" comprised of spirited Southern women - who don't always share Amanda's drive or common sense - and her right-hand man, Dustin Canez, Amanda works around the clock to create structure and exquisite design. Arguments are inevitable within this outspoken group, but Amanda manages to keep the peace and push people to achieve their best with her down-to-earth sense of humor and charm. Each episode, Amanda will meet with a new client to lend her expertise, whether it's for a blue-blood socialite looking for someone to turn her walk-in closet into a peaceful sanctuary or a single mom whose hoarding has turned her house - and life - into ruins. From garage, to nursery, to attic and even food truck, no space is off-limits for "The Amandas."

Meet the Cast:

Amanda LeBlanc - Amanda LeBlanc is the owner of "The Amandas"- a professional organizing company whose clients range from borderline hoarders, to overwhelmed soccer moms, to wealthy socialites, to high profile CEOs and celebrities. Amanda is an OCD, detail-obsessed, organizing guru and self-proclaimed "control freak" who combines intimidating sets of neurosis with a gentile charm to effectively manage her team. In 2005, Amanda and her family lost everything to Hurricane Katrina so she is acutely aware of the difference between what one needs and what one wants. After the tragedy, she picked herself up, opened her Birmingham, Alabama-based business while continuing to serve clients in New Orleans and Atlanta.

Dustin Canez - "The Amandas" team would not function without Amanda's right-hand man and personal assistant, Dustin. Her eyes and ears and even her snitch, Dustin keeps the other five women on track while also managing Amanda's stress level and work schedule.

Taylor Davis - Taylor is determined, outgoing, and independent and also happens to live with Aunt Amanda! She has inherited the organizing family gene and tries to live up to her aunt's high expectations, but at 19, her teenage behavior sometimes causes friction with her disciplined aunt.

Savannah Cernosek - Priding herself as the spunky organizer with a great sense of style, Savannah's go-getter attitude has put her steps above the rest of the team. Sarcastic and occasionally ruthless, she has been known to give attitude but always endeavors to stay professional... especially with Amanda!

Rachel Vicknair - Drop dead gorgeous, Rachel holds the beauty pageant titles of Ms. Louisiana State and Ms. New Orleans. She is strong, outgoing and determined to become Amanda's number two. With all the qualities of an excellent organizer combined with killer looks, will Rachel reign supreme among the other ambitious girls?

Havilah Malone - As a former corporate manager, Havilah is outspoken, passionate and tenacious, which are all qualities that Amanda holds dear. Always one to speak her mind, she won't put up with any nonsense as she climbs to the top of Amanda's ladder.

Alicia Lewis - This brainy beauty, with three college degrees already under her belt, isn't afraid to think out of the box and bring new ideas to the table. She is always ready to take up any challenge with the skills she has mastered by working with Amanda. However, don't be fooled by her sweet and quiet disposition. She can always use her clever wits and know-how to outshine the bunch!

"The Amandas" is produced by Pink Sneakers Productions. Executive Producers are Kimberly Cowin & John Ehrhard, along with Sarah Weidman and Renee Simon, Executive Producers for Style Network.
