Real Housewives Of Melbourne Star Gina Liano To Star In Cinderella Pantomime!

Looks like Gina Liano is expanding her acting career. After appearing in the soap opera, Neighbours, the Real Housewives of Melbourne star will appear in the family pantomime of Cinderella at the State Theatre in July.

Gina will be playing Cinderella's wicked stepmother. “She’s a bit sassy and a bit mean, but she’s attractive, of course, ­because they’ve cast me,” Liano told the Daily Telegraph.

Liano also revealed that she is prepared for the inevitable booing from the audience which is part of panto tradition. “I think that will happen automatically, won’t it,” she laughed.

With Real Housewives, I thought, ‘what have I signed up for?’ she said.

“But I mustered courage out of the fact that we only live once and I’ve had cancer, so it’s game on.”

Liano will be appearing in Cinderella alongside newcomer (and Xanadu star) Jaime Hadwen in the title role, as well as Jimmy Rees, better known as Giggle and Hoot’s Jimmy Giggle.

Gina is not the first Real Housewives star to take on the role of the wicked stepmother. Last year, Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes took on the role in her Broadway debut alongside KeKe Palmer.

The glamours barrister appeared in the fourth season of The Celebrity Apprentice Australia, sadly the fierce contender had to exit the show due to health reasons.

Until then, you can catch Gina and the rest of the ladies as the third season of The Real Housewives of Melbourne premieres this month, February 21 at 8:30pm on Arena.
