Real Housewives Of Sydney Star Athena X Levendi Wants Her Own Spin-Off Show!
“I have thought about me having a platform where I’m able to talk to people, connect and inspire people,” she told TV WEEK.
AthenaX says her own lifestyle show would be a far cry from the fly-on-the-wall reality style of the Real Housewives franchise.
“[The RHOS producers] kept telling me, ‘Athena you’ve got to be aspirational [on the reality show],’” AthenaX explains. “But I want to be inspirational.”
However, when asked if Athena would ever consider a Keeping Up With The Kardashians-style of reality series, she jokes that she’s already picked out a name.
“Yeah! ‘A Day In The Life With AthenaX,’” she laughs.
The mother-of-three says her on-screen ambitions have hardly come as a surprise to her children.
“When my kids talk about [RHOS] they say, ‘Oh yeah that’s something mum’s done, she was always going to do something in TV,’” the outspoken AthenaX says.
Meanwhile, Athena’s husband, Panos, is whole-heartedly embracing the reality show rollercoaster.
“My husband – he’s really into the fame thing. He loves it!” AthenaX smiles.
“And he loves the fact that at last his ‘so incredible’ wife is getting this platform. So he’s very proud of me and supports me in whatever I do.”
