The Real Housewives Of Sydney Coming In 2017, Foxtel Confirms ‘Casting Is Underway’ — Watch Official Announcement Trailer HERE!

Following the Season 3 reunion special of The Real Housewives of Melbourne, Foxtel officially announced the expansion of the Real Housewives franchise in Australia by releasing an announcement trailer of The Real Housewives of Sydney.

The network revealed that casting is underway and the show is set to premiere sometime in 2017. The teaser trailer (seen below) features a view of the Sydney skyline, along with the text: "New series of Real Housewives coming 2017."

Back in 2015, we reported that many socialites have went through secret screen tests for the upcoming reality series. Most recently in March, casting began once again, as we previously report via The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Mail, Skye Leckie (pictured below) leads a number of formidable women at the top of the list for producers.

The wife of former Seven Network boss David Leckie, appeared to confirm the news when contacted by the publication, saying: "I've heard I've been on the list since day one but I don’t know, you've caught me unawares."

Another among the highly likely cast mates is Christa Billich, married to artist Charles Billich (pictured above), is also besties with Real Housewives of Melbourne star Gamble Breaux. As a result, Christa has already appeared a number of times on the Melbourne series as guests.

"I would love to do it because I think I can show my other side," Christa told the publication. "People think I’m gentle and soft but I do have a side of me that is perfect for the Housewives. As we know, b****es are made, not born, and I can be a b****," she added.

Matty Samaei (pictured above), cosmetic beauty therapist and TV personality, who is the beauty adviser and a judge for the Miss Universe Australia pageant, is also among contenders. The Sydney Morning Herald first reported on Matty's screen tests last October.

Other names believed to be contenders for a spot on the upcoming series including model-turned-business woman Michelle Walsh (pictured above), who ran online kid's clothing company Mrs Walsh, which was relaunched as a lifestyle blog in 2010. Michelle is married to Martin Walsh, who runs Chadwicks Management - a company that represents some of the biggest names in modelling including Rachel Hunter and Jessica Hart.

Ex-wife of TV journalist Mike Willesee, Gordana Willesee-Poljak (pictured above), a make-up and tattoo artist has also confirmed she was speaking to producers and is believed to be a favorite. “I’m considering it,” Willesee-Poljak said. “If the opportunity has come to me, it has come to me for a reason and I think it could be a fantastic random opportunity to help me live an even straighter life because I’ll be on show.”

Other contenders include Lisa Oldfield, wife of former One Nation politician, David, hairdresser Jo Bailey’s business partner Marilyn Koch, as well as Double Bay boutique owner and former model Amanda Cameron and publicist turned business woman Kirsten Carriol. It's not yet certain whether former WAG Nation starlet Terry Biviano will be among the mix.

The show will be produced by Matchbox Pictures, the same producers behind The Real Housewives of Melbourne series as well as the newly announced, The Real Housewives of Auckland, which is set to air in August on Bravo New Zealand.

The Real Housewives of Sydney is set to premiere sometime in 2017.
