RE­AL­ITY TV SHOW HITS TOWN

Whitsunday Times - - FRONT PAGE - Inge Hansen inge.hansen@whit­sun­day­times.com.au

IT MAY have been in­tended as a re­laxed get­away to the Whit­sun­days to es­cape the has­sles of the real world, but for The Real Housewives of Syd­ney, drama is never too far away.

On Sunday night, episode 4 of The Real Housewives of Syd­ney aired on Fox­tel’s Arena channel fea­tur­ing the seven personalities spend­ing some time dip­ping their feet in the Whit­sun­day wa­ters.

The trip, or­gan­ised by housewife Vic­to­ria Rees, saw them visit Coral Sea Re­sort where the women en­joyed drinks and din­ner.

But it wasn’t all fun and games for Lisa Old­field.

Prior to leav­ing for the trip, Lisa con­fided in Vic­to­ria, who said the trip would be a chance to for­get about all the wor­ries of her mar­riage and sug­gested she con­tact a di­vorce lawyer.

How­ever, what Lisa thought was a pri­vate con­ver­sa­tion came out very pub­licly at the din­ner ta­ble.

“You can imag­ine I was shocked that she re­vealed my mar­riage prob­lems and was shocked I hadn’t con­tacted a di­vorce lawyer,” Lisa said.

It seems Lisa couldn’t catch a break ei­ther when the fol­low­ing day, she had a “near death” ex­pe­ri­ence.

While swim­ming at Chalkies Beach, the other six women had made their way back to shore but Lisa was no where to be seen.

The women ex­pressed their con­cerns but didn’t seem all too phased that their friend was miss­ing in ac­tion.

“I got into trou­ble very quickly,” Lisa said.

“The lady on the back of a fish­ing boat saw me wave my hands around and asked if I was okay and I said ‘no’.”

Lisa was even­tu­ally saved but it wasn’t a re­ac­tion of re­lief she was faced with upon re­turn­ing.

“I was par­tic­u­larly (an­gry) with Krissy (Marsh) be­cause I was clearly very shaken,” she said.

“(She) was mak­ing out that I was do­ing it for at­ten­tion.

“If I had wanted at­ten­tion, I could have told them about my mar­riage (but) I didn’t want to talk about those things.”

Also be­ing in the Whit­sun­days dur­ing her wed­ding an­niver­sary, it was clear the trip was an emo­tional roller coaster for Lisa, who said “in hind­sight, I wish I hadn’t gone”.
