This year one of our favourite guilty pleasures, The Real Housewives, is heading down under with The Real Housewives of Melbourne.
By Chloe Schneider
After a year of searching for housewives, the producers settled on six hardly-atypical Melbournites to star in the first ever Australian version of the popular franchise and now we have the first glimpse at the women who will be dominating the small screen this year.
In the first teaser we are introduced to our housewives, but here’s a few more need-to-knows on the cast…
Andrea Moss is a former TV journalist who now runs a cosmetic and plastic surgery business with her husband Chris moss.
Andrea is joined by socialite and caterer Chyka Keebaugh; divorcee of a millionaire property developer Janet Roach; sister to homegrown fashion heroes Bettina and Teresa Liano Gina Liano; and design student Lydia Schiavello.
And rounding out the six is Jackie Gillies, a celebrity psychic who is married to Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies. Anyone whose seen the Real Housewives of Beverley Hills episode with medium Allison DuBois will know having a psychic around could be dangerous!
Only time will tell whether this one is a flop or triumph, but we’re sure either way the season will not be without major drama, a few catfights, and a whole lot of botox. And, frankly, we can’t wait.
There’s no premiere date yet, but we do know the Real Housewives of Melbourne are due to hit Arena in February.
Watch the trailer below.
