Nikki Connors Turns Down Offer To Join The Cast Of New Zealand's ‘The Real Housewives Of Auckland!’

As we previously reported, the producers from The Real Housewives of Melbourne, Matchbox Pictures are working on expanding the Real Housewives franchise in New Zealand in hopes of adding Auckland to the hit reality franchise with The Real Housewives of Auckland.

Although a full cast has yet to be announced, a new report is claiming that Property guru and author, Nikki Connors has turned down a role on the New Zealand installment of the Real Housewives reality series.

According to Stuff, the Propellor Properties Investments entrepreneur said in a statement that she doesn't see herself "in a role that is portrayed and promoted" on the upcoming reality series.

"I've worked my whole life, often holding down multiple jobs at the same time," said Connors. "Because of that hard work I have built up my own multi-million dollar company, which helps thousands of ordinary New Zealanders to secure their financial futures by investing in property."

Connors said that although the offer to be involved with the reality series was "flattering" she preferred to spend her days making Kiwi's mortgage-free dreams come true.

"I prefer to spend my time helping Kiwis like me chase their dreams of home ownership and a comfortable, mortgage-free retirement," she said in a statement.

As we reported, screen tests went down on January at a ritzy pizza restaurant in the glamorous Auckland suburb of Parnell, according to The Herald.

Although a full cast has yet to be announced, Angela Stone has been reportedly been the first cast member signed on to the upcoming reality series.

Other names present at the filming included Kham Jones, ex-wife of millionaire businessman Bob Jones, and wine importer Anne Batley Burton, who goes by the nickname 'Champagne Lady' according to her official website.

Other potential Housewives include French antique dealer Chrystelle Baran, millionaire socialite Paula Herbert, and real estate mogul Carita Fenning.

No television networks have confirmed their involvement with the series, with Sky TV unaware they were in contention, TVNZ claiming they "had not been approached" and MediaWorks declining to comment on the show.
