Se­cret hunt for new house­wives

Sunday Herald Sun - - News -

WITH the pre-Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions in full swing eight days ago it was easy for a gath­er­ing of bling-tas­tic, spray-tanned, styled and stylish ladies — and a cou­ple of gents — to es­cape no­tice at an up­mar­ket in­ner-city restau­rant.

But th­ese weren’t just any ladies clink­ing cham­pagne glasses and telling tales. No, th­ese were some of the ladies who have been sounded out as po­ten­tial ad­di­tions to the cast for the new sea­son of the Real House­wives of Mel­bourne.

Fox­tel ex­ec­u­tives qui­etly slipped into town in the shad­ows of Christ­mas Eve to cast an eye over the in­ter­ested par­ties at the se­cret gath­er­ing.

“There were some re­ally in­ter­est­ing women, re­ally fun, it was good. Mel­bourne is full of good tal­ent,’’ a source said.

With Chyka Kee­baugh de­part­ing the pop­u­lar re­al­ity series fol­low­ing the close of sea­son three, and with one other house­wife pos­si­bly set to exit the show, Fox­tel over the past four months has been qui­etly look­ing for one, if not two, po­ten­tial new dar­lings.

The series has made stars of Kee­baugh, Gina Liano, Gam­ble Breaux, Pet­ti­fleur Berenger, Janet Roach, Jackie Gil­lies, Susie McLean and Ly­dia Schi­avello.

But one lunch does not make a cast­ing de­ci­sion.

It is still likely to be well into the new year be­fore any de­ci­sion is made.

The fourth series will be­gin film­ing in March.
