ADDING FUEL TO THE FIRE
SHE was already friends with several of the Housewives before joining the show, but it won’t take long for recruit Susie McLean ( left) to start ruffling feathers.
The glamourous mum of two quickly locks horns with Lydia Schiavello – who she has known since they were teenagers – and is at the centre of what looks to be the latest rift between the cast.
“I wouldn’t say it was a fractured friendship, I’d say it wasn’t really a friendship to start with,” McLean says of her relationship with Schiavello.
But despite the heated moments, McLean says she has “no regrets” about taking part in the show.
“Jackie [ Gillies] gave me the best advice, which was ‘ speak your truth and you’ll be fine’,” she says. “I found it therapeutic.”
