The Real Housewives of Melbourne may not have made waves in the United States, but it was a massive hit down under. But the housewives made such a big impression that Bravo will try once again to get the attention on the housewives of Melbourne. And they are doing it by putting The Real Housewives of Melbourne in the primetime spot for the spring lineup.
Many Bravo viewers had no idea that The Real Housewives of Melbourne was even a show that was offered. Of course, there are many Real Housewives spin-offs around the world, including Ladies of London and The Real Housewives of Cheshire. But the housewives of Melbourne made quite the splash, and they are now back.
According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of Melbourne is back on Bravo on March 5 in the primetime spot of 9 p.m. EST time for a second season. It is an interesting move by Bravo, but the show had been so successful in Australia that Bravo wants to tap into that market. So, getting viewers on board is an excellent start.
The returning housewives include Chyka Keebaugh, Gina Liano, Jackie Gillies, Janet Roach, and Lydia Schiavello. There is drama from last season of The Real Housewives of Melbourne, as Gina Liano felt completely left out of the group due to friction. Jackie Gillies is an outspoken and real housewife, who has no problem sharing her thoughts. With a rocker husband, people respect her, but she can ruffle some feathers.
The Real Housewives of Melbourne will also get a new look, as two additional housewives will join the cast. Gamble Breaux is a unique individual, who is entertaining and quirky. Her husband is a doctor and a contemporary art collection. Breaux herself is a former model.
Pettifleur Berenger is another addition to the Melbourne housewives. She is a feisty and glamorous woman, who is all about luxury. She runs a successful property development business – building homes she could only dream of living in as a child – and lives in a penthouse right in downtown Melbourne.
It is interesting that Bravo has decided to put The Real Housewives of Melbourne in the ranks of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Southern Charm, and Million Dollar Listing: New York. It is very possible that this could be the new hit show of the spring.
Will you be watching The Real Housewives of Melbourne next month to see what the hype is all about?
