Meet the Real Housewives of Sydney

Prepare yourselves! Foxtel has revealed seven vivacious personalities from the east coast who will be taking over our screens next year as the cast of the ‘Real Housewives of Sydney’.

Australia’s representation is set to double in Arena’s ‘Real Housewives’ family, following the highly-quotable three seasons of drama out of Toorak in the ‘Real Housewives of Melbourne’. Who begs to differ?

These cosmopolitan matriarchs will be luxuriating for your pleasure as they attend the most exclusive parties, jet-set around the globe and manage their businesses and their families.

The ladies will begin filming the ten-part series this September, with the premiere due to air in 2017. ‘Real Housewives of Melbourne’ is yet to announce a fourth season leaving a number of pressing questions unanswered. Will there be a new girl to replace Chyks? Is Andrea ever coming back? Has filming begun on ‘Judge Gina’? Only time will tell. Or possibly Jackie. She’s a psychic girl.
