It’s a match made in Hell
He’s the world-famous TV chef who has reduced even Gordon Ramsay to tears with his fiery temper.
But former Real Housewives of Melbourne’s Pettifleur Berenger says she wasn’t intimidated by Marco Pierre White’s infamous bluster.
“I’d take on 10 Marcos over those seven ladies (on Housewives),” Berenger laughs.
“I wasn’t scared of him. What’s he going to do to me, seriously? I was completely unscathed by him.”
Berenger left the Housewives franchise after two seasons of onscreen slanging matches with her co-stars. The socialite was happy to go out on a high, leaving her fans clamouring for more.
“I have no regrets,” she says. “The women never really let me into their circle. I was always on the outer. You have to have a thick skin to be a Housewife.”
She is now exploring her opportunities in the US after being invited to an international Housewives function hosted by ex-New York Housewife Jill Zarin.
Berenger is one of the 10 stars who become sous chefs to Pierre White in Seven’s reality series, Hell’s Kitchen Australia. She joins House Husbands’ Lincoln Lewis, Bachelorette fave Sam Frost and cricket WAG Candice Warner in the TV kitchen.
The seasoned reality star was teamed with One Nation co-founder David Oldfield where, she admits the pair butted heads. “I talked back to him,” she laughs. “What can I say? I like to stir the pot.”
