HOUSE­WIFE GINA BACK FOR MORE

Herald Sun - Switched On - - ON THE COUCH -

She was the run­away fan favourite, but Gina Liano says she came close to not re­turn­ing to the sec­ond sea­son of The Real Housewives Of Mel­bourne.

“I made a de­ci­sion when I fin­ished film­ing that I wouldn’t’ do an­other sea­son,” she says.

“I felt drained and I must say the ex­pe­ri­ence wasn’t par­tic­u­larly pleas­ant.”

But the re­ac­tion of view­ers when the show went to air made her put aside any reser­va­tions.

“The au­di­ence sup­port sus­tained me,” Liano ex­plains. “With their en­cour­age­ment I thought, ‘Well, I wasn’t re­ally given an op­por­tu­nity to en­ter­tain like I would have wanted to.’ I’ve got a lot of com­edy in me so I thought I should give it an­other shot.”

And Housewives devo­tees can be glad she has, with plenty of drama, tears and fire­works ahead for the seven women.

The only dif­fer­ence, says Liano, is this time she’s not the only one at the cen­tre of all the scan­dals.

“Last year was the Gina Liano Show,” she laughs. “Be­cause the dy­nam­ics have changed (with two new cast mem­bers join­ing and one leav­ing) the is­sues have changed any­way. This sea­son you’ll see dis­agree­ments and drama spread across the board. I had a lot more fun.”
