Recap: RHOMelbourne Season 1 - Episode 4

This week on The Real Housewives of Melbourne, Andrea Moss, Jackie Gillies and Lydia Schiavello head over to Thredbo for a girls trip, meanwhile Gina Liano, Chyka Keebaugh and Janet Roach stay back in Melbourne and bond over Janet’s return to the dating scene. Check out our recap below!

It's the first cast trip, even though it's only half the cast is going, it's off to a great start. We see the ladies packing and Jackie reveals she refuses to wear any type of clothing made from animals, meanwhile Andrea is looking what to take to the trip. Andrea's husband and their daughter give her their opinions of what to wear, listen to your daughter Andrea, kids say the truth, don’t wear the dead squirrel, just give it to me instead!

Andrea reminds her family that just because she's leaving doesn't mean they are free from following her infamous checklist. Her husband, Dr. Chris Moss however has other plans, he wants to party with his kids by having pizza, chips etc. Next, Lydia, Andrea and Jackie head over to Thredbo, and arrive at Lydia's vacation home and get settled in by opening a bottle of champagne, cheers!

Meanwhile back in Melbourne, Janet invites Chyka and Gina over to help her pick a best dress for her first post-divorce date. Janet reveals that her date is younger than her, he is 35 years of age and she is 55. Janet labels herself a 'saber tooth tiger' instead of a cougar because she believes now days, cougars are as young as 30 years old. Janet reveals she’s nervous about her date since it’s been a long time that she’s been with a man. Janet, don’t be nervous, you're hot, and fabulous, werk it! RHONY might have ended but we still get a similar glimpse of Sonja in Janet, minus the interns of course.

Back in Thredbo, the ladies go out for dinner and Gina becomes the main topic of conversation. The ladies discuss on why would Gina bring up the she said, he said aka Chinese Whisper Gate at Jackie’s housewarming party. To clarify, Jackie’s husband Ben was the one that brought it up, not Gina, so it’s unfair to blame it on her. Next Andrea starts throwing shade at Gina, she calls her orange, fake-tanned, makes fun of her hair style and ends it with saying that Gina's favorite movie is Priscilla – Queen of the Desert. Lydia then comes into Gina’s defense and says she has a unique look while Jackie says “She’s very centric”.

Back in Melbourne, Janet is on her date with Marty. Janet is looking smashing and sexy, you can tell that she’s happy just by the twinkle in her eyes. I must say Marty looks a bit older than 35 however his leather necklace is a no-no. Gina and Chyka sit by the bar and keep an eye out on Janet , just to make sure she’s happy on her date. This scene really reminds me of first season of RHONJ when Teresa and Jacqueline showed up tp support Danielle on her date. Next, Gina and Chyka decide to crash the date and say hello to Janet and Marty, they both approve of Janet's date and walk away leaving the two birds laughing and flirting.

The next day, Gina and Chyka pay Janet a visit to find out how her date went. Janet spills all the tea… about her date, that is. Janet reveals that Marty slept over and well… you know the rest. I’m so happy for Janet, get it gurl! Next the ladies bond and relax with a mani and pedi. The subject about the whole Jackie and Gina is brought up and at this point, I’m so over it, it’s been four episodes of #ChineseWhisperGate! Gina already said she believes in Jackie’s gift, that's why she freaked out, she just doesn't believe that her partner was unfaithful.Let’s move on already…NEXT!

Back in Thredbo, the ladies go skiing, we learn that Lydia is a pro, Andrea is average while Jackie is having trouble on the slopes aka falls every five minutes and cracks me up, she's a breath of fresh air. Next the ladies take a break from skiing and relax by taking some tequila shots, now that's what I'm talking about. The ladies are wondering how Janet's date went, Andrea believes Janet needs to date a man around her age, while Jackie disagrees, she believes that Jackie should date whoever she wants and just have fun, I agree with Jackie. #ShineShineShine!

The ladies decide to call the other ladies to check up on them. Janet tells the ladies about her date, then Janet tells the ladies that they are having fun by having mani and pedi and Jackie thinks it’s Ballzo, which it’s her way of saying boring. Thanks for the new vocab lesson Jackie!

Next Andrea, Jackie and Lydia bond over a glass of champagne and open up by sharing their views on relationships, husbands, kids and their past. Lydia opens up about the breakdown of her first marriage: “I was a young, beautiful woman with three children, who would want me?” says Lydia. I'm glad she meet Andrew and is in a happier place now.

Next week looks like the drama will increase, I can’t wait! Till then, Shine Shine Shine everyone!

The Real Housewives of Melbourne airs every Sunday at 12pm/11c on Bravo!
