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.”
