There’s a whole new set of housewives on Bravo and they hail from Melbourne, Australia. Check out the above video to watch the premiere episode before it airs this coming Sunday, August 3, 2014 at 12 p.m. EST.
Six women show us the glamour from down under – Lydia Schiavello, Gina Liano, Jackie Gillies, Andrea Moss, Chyka Keebaugh, and Janet Roach. Lydia has three children, along with three step-children and her husband spoils her. She enjoys driving fast cars, shopping all the time, and flying on her family’s jet. Gina is an colorful criminal barrister who loves to be fashionable and is full of glamour. Gina calls herself the ultimate drag queen, has her own personal stylist, and both of her sisters have prominent fashion labels. Gina’s only problem is that her significant other now lives in the U.S., which makes for a very difficult long-distance relationship.
Chyka is a socialite and an event party planner who has been married to Bruce for 23 years. Chyka and her husband own a massive catering company together, plus several other large companies. The two try to balance their work life with their home life, but Chyka seems to be a bit too stubborn in that area. Andrea is a plastic surgeon’s wife and she lives in Toorak, which is considered the Beverly Hills of the area. What’s most interesting about Andrea is that she has five different nannies for her three children. Her place of business is Liberty Belle Skin Centre, which is in charge of large events with high-profile clients at their “maintenance” clinic. Jackie is a less conservative woman who’s a psychic and a rock star’s wife to Benjamin David Gilles. Ben is in the band Silverchair and fronts his own band Bento.
Janet has been divorced twice and is playing the field because her husband of 14 years cheated on her more times than she can count. Janet’s hairdresser Patrick (Patty) is at her beckoned call several times a week and she basically considers him family. Janet loves botox and anything else she can do to stay young-looking. During the week, Janet lives in a boutique hotel and on the weekends, she lives on a property in Red Hill. Janet is a workaholic, mother of two twenty-something year-olds.
