The Real Housewives Of Sydney Dish On Dramatic New Foxtel Reality Series — Teases What Fans Can Expect In Season 1!
“There wasn’t one meal I got to eat dessert with,” laughs former Miss Australia Nicole O’Neil, a Bellevue Hill mum of two, referring to the cat fights and claws which would invariably come out every time the seven women gathered for filming. “And I’m a wog! So we need to eat!,” she told The Daily Telegraph.
“It’s been an emotional roller coaster,” says former model and mother of three Marsh, who is related by marriage to Nicole. “It’s been eye popping that grown women behave like that … it’s a struggle being in a room all together but I don’t have one regret,” says Krissy.
Matty, who owns Medispa in Double Bay, says: “I do think in some areas I have been a peacemaker although I have had my own conflict … so far it’s been a great experience.”
Victoria Rees, whose business Wrinkles Shminkles is a line of medical grade silicone, says she is the “pragmatic” one.
“There are five of us, Krissy, Matty, Melissa and Nicole who are really close. We will be friends for life,” Rees says admitting Athena and Lisa Oldfield are on the outer of the camp.
Athena X, an eccentric who believes she has been reincarnated several times, isn’t afraid to ruffle feathers calling Melissa Tkautz a pot plant at one point in the series.
“It’s a joke darling” she laughs, clearly more than happy to play villain for a good storyline.
“Originally I thought Housewives was about wealthy women walking around drinking champagne until I went and watched them all and realised it’s a multi-layered show about women and their struggles and their highs and lows and their personalities and how they gel,” she says, likening her in-your- face approach to straight talking New York Housewife, Bethenny Frankel.
She continued: “I’m the kind of person in that I believe you have to speak your truth and your mind and if you are misunderstood it has to do with how that person perceives you and their own ideologies.
“The important thing to me is that I feel good about who I am on this earth … if people are offended and think I’m a horrible human being well they are entitled to their opinion.”
“Maybe they are seeing things in my personality they don’t like about themselves or things they wish they had. I’m a very jarring human being.”
Levendi claims three of the women — Victoria, Krissy and Nicole “completely bullied” her.
“They were always righteous, ready to attack, ready to pull me up or to shut me down,” she said.
“She described Matty and Melissa as “fence sitters” and acknowledges: “It was extremely well cast. I’m a complete nut case. And my family know who I am, so they have nothing to worry about.”
